Safety Guide

Volume level is subjective and everyone perceives it differently. Listening to music for long periods of time at excessive levels can cause irreparable damage to your ears. Reduce the volume levels of the amplifier and/or audio device before listening to your headphones. Gradually increase the volume until you reach the desired level. Enjoy your headphones with safe listening habits in mind.

Always maintain a distance of at least 8-inches (20cm) between the headphones and a cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, or other medical devices as the LCDi4 uses permanent magnets.

Keep the product, accessories and packaging out of reach of children. This product is not intended for children under the age of 12.

Sound Technology

The LCDi4 is the world’s most powerful and luxurious in-ear planar magnetic headphone. Incorporating the same patented Fluxor Magnets, Fazor, and Uniforce technologies as our top of the line LCD4 headphones, your new LCDi4 is capable of realistic sound reproduction unmatched by any other in-ear headphone on the market. Flexible, portable and lightweight, a confident statement of exclusive elegance inside and out.

Amplification

The LCDi4 headphones are engineered for the highest quality sound reproduction. To get the maximum performance from your headphone, we recommend powering them with a quality headphone amplifier. Alternatively, the LCDi4s are very efficient and can be used directly with cellphones and tablets without amplification.

Setting up your LCDi4 Headphones

Eartips: Your new LCDi4s come with the small size silicone rubber eartips pre-installed. We also provide larger sizes of eartips to suit your personal preference and comfort. To change the eartips: Pull the eartip straight off. Insert the new tip by pulling it inside out onto your finger tip, then pushing it onto the outside of the eartube, starting at a 45 degree angle. A gentle twisting motion may also help get the tips on with minimal effort. It may take a little practice before changing tips becomes easy.

Source: Connect the input end of the cable to your source device.

Output: Look for the (L)eft and (R)ight indicators on the two 2-pin cable ends and match them to the headphones accordingly. Ensure that both sets of cable indicators align with the indicators on the headphones and insert the plugs. You will feel a gentle click indicating the plugs are locked in place.

NOTE: The connectors are keyed and can only fit in one direction. DO NOT force the connector in backwards, doing so will damage your headphones.

Types of Ear Attachments

As everyone’s ears are different, the LCDi4 Headphones come with two types of earpiece attachments: EarHooks and EarLocks™. We suggest trying the EarHooks first, but users should select the option that is most comfortable and secure for their use.

EarHooks: The EarHooks fit over the ear, anchoring the headphones in place similar to how eyeglass hooks work. For most users, the EarHooks allow the headphones to be fitted securely and allow for the most comfortable fit.

EarLocks: The EarLocks are positioned on the concha of the ear rather than over the top of the ear. They are preferred by some listeners, but may not be a viable option for everyone depending on the shape of your ear.

EarLocks are a registered trademark of Surefire.

EarHook Installation

  1. Attach the EarHook by snapping the semi-circular latch onto the back-side of the headphone, making sure the EarHooks point up at an angle to align  with the front corner of the headphone. Note the direction of the EarHook compared to that of the eartip as seen in the diagram.
  2. Position the Headphone+EarHook assembly over the according ear and loop the EarHook behind your ear.
  3. Gently insert the eartip into your ear canal so it’s comfortably snug with a good seal.
  4. Holding the headphone portion of the assembly in place, adjust the EarHook by rotating it into a comfortable position.

EarLock Installation

  1. Attach the EarLock by snapping the semi-circular latch onto the back-side of the headphone with the EarLock tip pointing in the same direction as the eartip, as seen in the diagram.
  2. Position the Headphone+EarLock assembly on the according ear.
  3. Gently insert the eartip into your ear canal so it’s comfortably snug with a good seal.
  4. Rotate the Headphone+EarLock assembly so that the EarLock rests comfortably in the concha portion of your ear and the eartip maintains a good seal.

Cleaning your Headphones

IMPORTANT: Use warm water and lint-free cloth to clean and dry the silicone eartips. Replace the eartips onto the eartube before using your headphones.

DO NOT use harsh cleaning agents or abrasive materials to clean the eartips or headphones. Doing so may void the warranty.

DO NOT attempt to clean the eartips without first removing them from the headphones. Wetting the internal circuitry may cause permanent damage that is not covered by warranty.
