2. What happens if the waterproof headphones become disconnected from
the case?

As long as the case is not submerged underwater for long periods of time, it should be fine. The
longer the case is submerged underwater, the higher the possibility water can enter the case
through the stereo jack. If headphones detach from the case, we suggest getting that connection
back together as soon as possible.

3. What headphones are compatible with X-1 Waterproof Cases?

X-1 Waterproof Armbands are designed to work with X-1 Waterproof Headphones and standard
3.5mm headphones.The case should not be submerged underwater for long periods of time
without X-1 Waterproof Headphones plugged in as water may be able to enter the armband
through the stereo jack. IMPORTANT: X-1 Waterproof Armbands and Cases are compatible
with H2O Audio Waterproof Headphones.

4. Can X-1 Waterproof Cases be taken into a hot tub or sauna?

Sometimes. Since we do not control the laws of physics, so you should continuously check to
see if condensation is forming inside the case. This amount will vary from location to location
based upon the humidity in the air when the armband was originally closed. If any condensation
becomes visible within the case, STOP use immediately.

SAFETY INFORMATION

Please read this manual carefully. If you have any questions please contact X-1 Customer
Service prior to use.

Improper use of this system may cause the user to make mistakes or decisions that may lead to
serious injury or death.

Always make sure to have the audio player volume turned to zero and the headphones turned
away from the ears when turning on the audio player. If the volume level is not zero when the
audio player is turned on, it may cause ear injury due to a sudden burst of volume. The volume
should be slowly increased with an audio track playing to set the speaker volume to comfortable
output levels prior to positioning the headphones next to the ears. Hearing experts advise
against continuously loud and extended play. If you experience ringing in your ears, reduce
volume or discontinue use.

It can be potentially dangerous to use headphones while engaging in activities that require your
full attention. You should exercise extreme caution or discontinue use in potentially hazardous
situations. Do not use the headphones while driving, cycling, or operating any motorized vehicle.
It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in some areas. Those users that elect to utilize this
system at, or near, the water’s surface, must maintain safety awareness of moving water crafts.

WARNING: Ear tips should always be used.

WARNING: Contains small parts which may be a choking hazard.

Not suitable for children under 3 years old.

WARNING: This product contains magnetic material.

Do not expose the armband to extreme heat, such as the inside of a hot car, or in
hot direct sunlight, such as on a beach, or boat deck. Doing so may cause damage
and subsequent flooding.

After in-water use, you should rinse your case off with clean water and let it air dry
for your next use. Strong detergents, soaps, and chemicals must never be used to
clean the case. For long-term storage, store out of direct sunlight.

MAINTAINING THE WATERPROOF SEAL

To clean the seal, remove it from the case and wash with warm fresh water. Strong
detergents, soaps, and chemicals should never be used to clean the seal. Allow
seal to air dry and install back into the case once dry. The life of a waterproof seal
is typically one year. Please contact X-1 Customer Support for replacement seals.
The silicone seal does not require lubrication. Do not use silicone grease to
lubricate the seal.

FAQ

S

1. What MP3 players and phones are compatible with this case?

The Amphibx Go Case for large devices was designed specifically for the Apple iPhone and iPod
touch. However many smartphones and portable media players will fit into this case because of
the generous size of the opening and the flexible materials used. If your device does not fit,
please let us know so we can consider it for future products.

CONTROLLING YOUR IPHONE, IPOD TOUCH, OR OTHER DEVICES

The ClearTouch Pouch has been engineered to allow you to maintain complete
control over touch controls and push buttons featured on your device.

The ClearTouch Pouch was designed to be clear on both sides so when oriented
properly, you can use the camera on most devices including all iPhone models, the
iPod touch (4th Gen.) and many other devices.

USING THE REMOVABLE CARABINER

The lightweight removable carabiner is not suitable for climbing but does allow the
Amphibx Go Case to be attached to anything from belts to backpacks!

MAINTAINING YOUR AMPHIBX GO WATERPROOF CASE

Your Amphibx Go was specifically engineered to be durable enough to handle
damaging environments such as the pool, ocean, rain, and mud, yet made to be
light enough for everyday uses such as running, swimming, biking, hiking, and just
relaxing at the beach. With that said, it is not indestructible, so you need to use
reasonable care when using the Amphibx Go.

With so many environments, and so many uses, the one common message is that
you should always check the Amphibx Go before use to make sure it was not
damaged during your last activity.

CONNECTING YOUR HEADPHONES

Small Strain Relief with Small SealTight Connector Boot

Large Strain Relief with Large SealTight Connector Boot

The SealTight Connector Boot featured on the Amphibx Go is designed to create
a 100% waterproof connection with X-1 Waterproof Headphones (sold
separately) or the included Boot Plug.

The case should not be submerged under water for long periods of time without
X-1 Waterproof Headphones or the Boot Plug installed, as water could enter the
case through the open headphone jack.

X-1 Waterproof Headphones come with a strain relief in 2 different sizes. We
have included 2 SealTight Connector Boots for you to use based upon which X-1
Waterproof Headphones you have. Please see the images shown to see which
boot goes with which headphone plug.

In the event you would like to use the Amphibx Go without headphones you must
install the included Boot Plug, which provides a 100% waterproof seal. The Boot
Plug is double sided to accommodate the 2 different styles of SealTight
Connector Boots. See photos to determine which side to use

CHECKING THE WATERPROOF WELDS

In addition to the waterproof seal
in the lid, the Amphibx Go Case
features welded outer seams that
have been specifically designed to
prevent water from entering the
case.

Each X-1 case is inspected and
tested in a pressure chamber to
ensure it is 100% waterproof prior
to packaging.

Even with this level of care, you
still need to ensure the welds have
not been damaged by your
activities.

Take a moment to look at the
waterproof welds upon arrival. You
should perform a visual inspection
of the welds each time you install
your device in the case.

CHECKING THE WATERPROOF SEAL

The X-1 Amphibx Go Case features a removable seal that forms a waterproof
barrier between the base and lid of the case.

It is extremely important that special attention is paid to ensure the seal is
completely seated in the groove of the lid. If the seal is loose, out of alignment,
twisted or pinched in any way, it will compromise the waterproof integrity of the
armband and should not be used. Any debris such as hair, sand, surf wax or mud
will prevent it from forming a watertight barrier and should be cleaned off before
use.

It is extremely important that you ensure the seal is clean and properly seated each time
you close the lid. Failure to do so may ruin your device in the armband.

If the seal comes out of alignment, carefully place it back into the groove, ensuring
all 4 corners are correctly installed. Close the lid into the base and then re-open it
to make sure the seal is fitted correctly into the groove. The seal should appear
straight and uniform along all edges and should not fall out easily.

5. Arrange any excess cord so that it
will not interfere when closing the lid.

1. Pull the latch hook away from the lid.

3. Plug in 3.5mm Stereo Cable from

be sure to position camera lens so it can be seen
though the ClearTouch pouch.

7. Once lid is closed, double check that
the lid is fully seated, and that the latch
has snapped into place. Failure to do so
could cause the lid to open during use.

8. Always check your case for obvious signs of wear
and check with Customer Service if you have any
questions about the condition of your case. If you take
care of your Amphibx Go, it will take care of you!

2. Holding latch hook open, lift on the tab of the lid.

6. Before closing the lid, ensure the seal is clean,
seated properly and that there is nothing in the way
that would prevent the lid from fully closing. Close lid.
