Getting the right fit

Your earbuds need to be inserted snugly into your ears for optimal audio and performance.

Insert the earbud into your ear with the Panasonic logo on the bottom and the charging terminals on the top.
Twist the earbud back and forth until it is nice and snug. If they feel like they are coming loose when you move, try different sizes until you find one that stays in place.
