The Essential Earbud You Always Looked for

The Essential Earbud You Always Looked for

To take advantage of all the sound quality that the Earbuds make, you should be able to isolate all the sound coming from outside, to listen only to the sound of your Earbud. For this you should choose the “olive” (Mold) that best fits your ear canal. There are several sizes and it should be well adapted so that it does not “leak” sound.


Pay attention therefore in the headphones there is the letter R (RIGHT), that must be inserted in the Right ear and the letter L (LEFT) that must be inserted in the Left ear, otherwise the seal will not be the ideal one and you could even hurt the skin of your ear canal.

The Right Foam

If you have opted for an “olive” (mold) of foam, tighten and lightly rotate the olive already fitted to the earbuds before inserting it into the ear canal. Once inside the conduit, it will expand and occlude the entire conduit. This happens in a maximum of 10 seconds, it is indicated that you hold and press the Earbuds during this time.

When placing the Earbud it is always interesting to pull the ear cup with the other hand towards the back of the head, to horizontalise the ear canal and to insert the earbud more deeply. But be careful not to put it too deep, otherwise you may again injure the skin of your ear canal or even injure the tympanic membrane. If you feel pain, you are probably doing something wrong. If you need to choose the best then go for the

At the end of the process, turn your Earbud so that the cable is up and positioned on top and behind the ear cup.

Water and Mild Soap

“Olives” can be washed after use with water and mild soap, remember to remove them from the Earbud and make sure they are dry before putting them back on. A good tip is to wash them at night, leave them drying all night, and only replace them the next day. Foam “olives” take a little longer to dry.

  • Remember that water, sweat or any liquid can permanently damage your earbud.
  • The Earbud should not be wet, so to clean it use only a dry tissue or any other cloth, clean and dry.
  • Never use alcohol in the olives or in the phone.

Look for wax buildup on the sound output of your Earbud, this will impair the quality and intensity of the sound. Use the instrument that came with your Earbud Shure to remove the wax. Be careful not to push the wax further to the bottom, this could damage your phone. If you are in doubt, look for us and we will clean it for you!

  • Once your “olive” gets rough, replace it with a new one.

Be aware

The olives are for universal use, not all hearing aids will be adequately sealed. If your conduit is not sealing well, if your earbud moves or falls during a presentation you should wrap to customize your earbud, taking better advantage of all the sound quality of your earbud, at a volume appropriate to not impair your hearing.

Earbuds are the last stage of a beep in the system. The headphones of monitors that are molded by an audiologist are more comfortable to use. They also provide a better seal, and thus there is a greater noise reduction (usually between 25 and 40dbSPL), which will ensure, if used judiciously, good hearing health.
