IMPORTANT SAFETY AND
Please read before using your in-ear
• Before inserting in-ear headphones into the ear canal, set volume to the
lowest level then gradually increase until desired volume level is reached.
• Avoid listening at high volume levels for long periods of time. Noise
levels are measured in decibels (dB). Regular exposure to noise at or
above 85dB can cause hearing loss. Monitor your listening as hearing
loss happens over time. Refer to the guidelines on the Consumer
Electronics Association’s website relating to safe listening levels:
• Do not use in-ear headphones at times when your attention is
required—such as driving, operating heavy machinery, bicycling,
or jogging. It is dangerous and in many jurisdictions illegal to drive
wearing noise-isolating in-ear headphones because it dramatically
decreases your chance of hearing life saving sounds around you such
as car horns or emergency sirens.
• Flying at high altitudes may cause pressure build-up in your ears. While
in-flight, remove in-ear headphones periodically to relieve pressure.
• This product generates strong permanent magnetic fields that
could cause interference with cardiac pacemakers and implanted
defibrillators (ICDs). Maintain a distance of at least 4-inches (10cm)
between the in-ear headphones and the medical device.
• Do not expose product to heat (hair dryer, radiators, etc.) and do
not store in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
• Protect product from moisture.
• In the rare instance an ear tip comes off in the ear canal when
removing the in-ear headphones and cannot be easily removed,
contact a medical professional.
• Consult a medical professional if you have excessive ear wax,
difficulty inserting the ear tips, or feel discomfort after prolonged use.
• Avoid dropping and strong impact.
• Do not use in-ear headphones without a proper ear tip.
• Do not pull the cord to remove the in-ear headphones from the
ear or from the audio device.
• Clean or replace ear tips prior to use by other persons.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
1 set of in-ear headphones
3 pairs of ear tips (small/medium/large)
1 travel case (varies by model)
1 owners manual
MICROPHONE AND REMOTE (E2i and E3i models only)
The in-ear headphones will play audio from any source with a standard
3.5-mm 3-conductor (stereo headphone) socket. The microphone will
function with most smart phones and similar devices with a standard
3.5-mm 4-conductor socket (stereo headphone + microphone).
The remote control will function with some non-Apple smart phones,
digital media players and similar devices. Exact functions of the
remote will vary by make and model and Paradigm cannot guarantee
compatibility with specific brands or models.
Allow approximately 15 to 30 hours for break-in at moderate listening
levels before any critical listening. Like most high-performance audio
products a preliminary break-in will result in improved performance.
For rapid break-in you may leave the in-ear headphones connected to an
audio source playing music during the night or when not in use.
SELECTING AND INSERTING EAR TIPS
Select the tips that fit comfortably into the ear canal.
A cable slider is included to help ensure a comfortable fit and reduce
tangles. The slider is located immediately above the area where the cord
splits. Slide up or down to customize fit. To reduce tangling when not
in use, we recommend positioning the slider at the top of the cord, near
(E2i and E3i models only. For the E1, use your audio
device to control volume.)

To remove buildup, clean in-ear headphones regularly by lightly wiping
earpiece and cord with a slightly damp cloth. Do not get the in-ear
headphones wet. NEVER use solvents or other harsh cleaning products
as they will permanently damage the finish.
