Using Your New Balance Sport Headphones with Foldable Neck Band

Your New Balance Headphones feature a foldable neckband for compact storage. Unfold the neckband

completely and place it over your head and behind your neck as shown with the earpieces over your ears

and the headphone plug on your left side.

Your New Balance Sport Headphones are

supplied with two additional sets of plastic

color caps to allow you to customize the

look to match your mood. To replace the

original caps simply lift up the edge of the

cap as shown to remove it. Install a new

cap and gently press down on the cap until

it ‘snaps’ into place.

Your New Balance Sport Headphones are also supplied

with two sets of silicon speaker covers. You may wish to

replace the original sponge speaker covers with the

washable silicon speaker covers if you perspire heavily

during exercise.

To replace the speaker covers, carefully lift the sponge

covers off the speaker housing and then stretch the silicon

covers over the housing.

Your New Balance Sport Headphones were designed with a modular cord system. We have provided a 15”

iPod/iPhone control cable that is suitable if your music player will be worn in an armband or clipped to your

clothing at chest level. We have also provided a 36” cable that is suitable if your music player will be clipped

to your belt, placed in your pocket or carried in a fanny-pack. You may connect both cables together in

case you want to control your iPod or iPhone and the 15” or 36”cable is not long enough.

Connect the male headphone plug of the headphones to the female headphone jack of either the 15” or

36” headphone cable depending on your wearing preference. Then connect the male headphone plug of

the 15” or 36” cable to the headphone jack of your music player. Be sure that the plugs are fully inserted

into the jacks. If the plugs are not fully inserted you may only hear sound from one earpiece.

Using the iPod/iPhone Control Cable

Connect the 15” iPod/iPhone cable between your headphones and your iPod/iPhone to perform the

following operations with the remote controller mounted on the cable:

Using the Water Resistant Connection Cover

Your New Balance Ear Buds are also supplied with a silicon sleeve that can be used to cover the

connection between the male headphone plug on the Ear Buds and the female headphone jack on the 15”

or 36” cable. Use this connection cover if you routinely use your Ear Buds in extremely wet or damp

Stretch the connection cover over the plug of the Ear Buds as shown.

After connecting the male plug of the Ear Buds to the female jack on the

15” or 36” cable. Slide the connection cover down so that it completely

covers the plug and jack connection point to seal out excess moisture.
Safety Information

To protect your hearing, always start listening with the Volume Control of

your music player set to a low level and gradually increase the volume to

a comfortable listening level.
IMPORTANT! Listening at high volume for long periods of time can result

in long-term hearing damage. For your safety, do not use headphones if

they would prevent you from hearing warning sounds, such as while

driving a car or motorcycle, riding a bike, etc.
NOTE: In extremely cold or dry air conditions you may notice a slight

‘tingling’ feeling in your ears when using in-ear headphones. This is the

result of the build-up of static electricity in your body. This is normal and

not an indication of any problem with your headphones.

Using the Accessory Cord Winder Clip

Your New Balance Ear Buds are also supplied with a cord winder clip that may be used to eliminate excess

slack in the 36” cable if necessary. If you find that that the 36” cable is too long you can store up to 24” of

cable in the cord winder and then clip the cord winder to your clothing.
