Ear cushions The ear cushions are secured to the earcups by means of a quarter turn fastener. To remove an ear cushion, turn it in the direction of the arrow until you overcome a slight resistance and lift it off the earcup.

Rechargeable batteries

Attention: Only use re-chargeable batteries, never use standard batteries! Insert the rechargeable batteries. Charge the batteries for at least 24 hours prior to first time use. Subsequent charging time is approx. 18 hours per charge. Place the headphones on the charging cradle of the transmitter. The red LED lights up, indicating that the batteries are being charged. The LED remains lit even when the rechargeable batteries are fully charged. The unit has overcharging protection.

Nearly discharged batteries will significantly reduce the sound quality.

I own three sets and one quit working. As it turns out that the rechargeable batteries in that one set need replacing.

Until I purchase some rechargeable batteries, I am using standard AAA batteries and just have to remember NOT to put the headset back on the cradle.

Thanks for the info on how to access the batteries !
