FAQ

You'll need headphones that either have an in-line or built-in microphone. If it's built-in, you'll need to connect to your phone through Bluetooth® to hear calls on your headphones.

Normally, you can be about 6-10 feet away from your device. This distance may vary depending on both your device and headphones individual Bluetooth® features and other factors.

Gaming headset compatibility varies between every headset. Some gaming headsets use a 3.5mm audio jack to plug into compatible ports, and, if you use a Y-splitter, these headsets will be compatible with most consoles and PCs. Other headsets are wireless, and can either come with a USB dongle that plugs into your console or PC's USB port, or the headset could have a built-in propriety chip that creates a direct connection with the console–no dongle required. To find out if your gaming headset can work with your console or PC, take a look at the headset's features and specifications, or ask one of our knowledgable in-store Associates to help you find the right one.

Glossary
Wired

Include a tethered connection between your headphones and your device that is required to be plugged in to hear calls, music, and content.

Wireless

Do not require a tethered connection from your headphones to your device. They connect through Bluetooth® technology so you can move freely without remaining physically connected to your phone. A wired connection will remain between the right and left headphones.

Truly Wireless

No tethered connection to the individual earpieces or your devices. They connect directly by Bluetooth® set-up and allow for a wireless free experience.

Over ear

Ergonomically designed to cover your ears to maximize sound quality and minimize external noise leaking through any gaps in your headphone placement. This allows sound to reverberate off the inside walls of the headphones for a fuller sound.

On ear

Ear cups sit on top of your ear and are known to offer a natural sound while listening to music or taking calls. The gaps in on-ear placement allow for environmental sounds to register.

Secure ear hooks

Added pieces that loop around your ear and fit snuggly in your exterior auditory canal for added support and stability.

Easy on
ear controls

Trackpads added to the outside of each earphone or headphone that allows you to access various controls outside of an app. Popular controls are volume adjustments, music or call controls, and adjustments in noise-cancelling or ambient mode features.

Voice assistance

With a Bluetooth® connection to your phone, you can speak into the microphone on your headphones to pull up compatible voice assistance technology such as Google, Siri, and Alexa. It will then leverage your phone to pull up information and feed answers back to your headphones.

Noise cancelling

Technology that enables external sounds and environmental noises to be significantly diminished so you can enjoy a listening experience, or call distraction-free.

Ambient Mode/
Transparency

Settings that allow you to modify the amount of external sounds that filter through your headphones. This allows you to adjust based on your preference without leaving you removed from your environment.

Sweat- and
water-resistant

Designed to withstand sweat and light water. Do not submerge or use in heavy rain.

Waterproof

An IPX7 waterproof rating lets you use these headphones in all weather conditions–you can even take them underwater but note that your Bluetooth® connection will not work underwater so only models with a built-in MP3 player allow you to listen to music while swimming.

Reliable
connectivity

A strong and steady connection that keeps your headphones linked to your phone, laptop and other devices. This reliable connection gives you the freedom to leave your devices inside, while you take hands-free calls outside or in another room.

Cases that store your headphones and extra power for when you're on the go. Charging cases are like a portable power bank designed just for your headphones.
