earHero Sport: Frequently Asked Questions
We’re sure you have some questions about earHero Sports earphones. Fortunately, we have answers!
Will my earHero Sports earphones work with the iPhone?
Absolutely. The 3.5mm 3-pole stereo jack will work perfectly with your iPhone, Android Phone, CD Discman, or even 1987 Sony Walkman. Yes, some of us here are old enough to remember riding with a walkman listening to Tony Robbins motivational audio cassettes!
How should I store my earHero Sports earphones?
Given the unique construction, to enable total sound awareness, it’s important that when you’re not out training that you store your earHero Sports earphones in the custom storage case for protection. This will protect the earphones from accidental damage, ensuring your earphones will be available to use while training for years to come.
How should I care for my earHero Sport earphones?
As with all high end equipment proper care is essential. Make sure to keep the earpieces clean (see below in the Support section for cleaning instructions). Try to keep the cables from tangling and knotting. Also, store your earphones in the protective case that comes with your order.
What is the length of the cable?
Your earHero Sport earphones have a 135cm cables which will allow for safe storage of your iPhone, iPod or audio device in your cycling jersey or back pocket.
Does it come with volume control?
No. earHero Sport earphones are all about safety, so we’ve designed these to minimize distractions during training sessions. If you really need that extra feature of volume control, you can find third party adapters through Amazon or ebay.
Does it comes with a microphone ?
As with the volume control, microphones are an extra distraction while riding and therefore not offered as part of the earHero Sport package. You can also find third party microphone adapter online if you’re interested.
earHero Sport earphones are 'sweat resistant', but are they 'water proof'?
earHero Sport earphyones are not “water proof” by the true definition so we can’t give you any technical grade or fancy rating. However, since the speaker portion is worn deep in the ear canal it is very resistant to sweat and rain.
Support + Warranty Claims
I think my earHero Sport earphones are faulty, what do I do ?
Oftentimes earwax can build up in earbud style earphones which can lead to a blockage in the earpiece. Fortunately, earHero Sport earphones are designed with a removable wax guard that can be removed and cleaned. On the end of the earpiece speaker you will find a small white ring. This is the wax guard. Carefully remove the guard from earpiece and soak it in hydrogen peroxide to remove the wax buildup. Just be sure the guard is COMPLETELY dry before re-installing on the earpiece. If that doesn’t fix the issue and your earHeroes are still under the original 30 day guarantee or the product warranty you can click here to arrange a return. If you have questions outside of the warranty period you can email us here. We’ll respond to you as soon as possible.
