2. Charging Your iHome Ear Buds
Your iHome Bluetooth ear buds operate on a built-in rechargeable battery. Although
the battery was fully charged when it left our factory, the battery can lose power even
during periods of non-use. Make sure to charge the battery before using the phone
for the first time.
To charge the battery connect the larger plug of the included
USB charging cable to the powered USB port of a computer or
a USB/AC adapter and then connect the smaller plug to the
USB charging port on side of the control dongle as shown in
the illustration.
The Charging Indicator will glow red while the ear buds are
charging. The indicator will turn off when the ear buds are fully charged and ready to
When fully charged the battery should provide up to 4 hours of talk time or music
playing time at a normal listening level. If operated at maximum volume the music
playing time will be reduced. NOTE: While charging, the earbud power will turn off to
conserve battery power and minimize charging time.
3. Wearing Your iHome Ear Buds
The ‘M’ size silicon tips were installed on the ear buds at our factory.
If you wish to change to either the ‘S’ or ‘L’ size tips simply pull the ‘M’ size tips off
the ear buds and replace them with the ‘S’ or ‘L’ size tips. Be
sure to push the ‘S’ or ‘L’ size tips on to the ear buds until they
are firmly seated on the tubes so that the tips do not come off
the ear buds when you remove them from your ears. Using the
proper size tips will insure that you get the best possible seal in
your ear canal and provide the best audio quality.
The recommended usage is to position the cable behind your neck before inserting
the ear buds in your ears. The ear buds should be worn with the control dongle on
your right side.
Note: Noise isolation ear buds like the iB29 are designed to provide a good seal in
your ears and block outside sounds. You should not use noise isolation ear buds in
situations that require you to hear outside warning sounds.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS1. Switching Your Ear Buds On and Off2. Power On / Auto-Linking Mode
PRESS and HOLD the Multi-Function Button (MFB) on the control dongle for
approximately 2 seconds until you hear the “Power On” voice prompt that confirms the
power is ‘On’. The blue LED begins flashing slowly indicating that your ear buds are in
the Auto-Linking Mode and trying to re-link to a previously paired device as long as that
device is within the normal pairing range of approximately 33-feet. If your ear buds do
not find a previously paired device that is in range and turned ‘on’ within 3 minutes they
will switch from the Auto-Linking mode to the Power ‘Off’ mode to extend the battery
3. Power Off
To shut the power ‘Off’ at any time PRESS and HOLD the Multi-Function Button (MFB)
on the control dongle for approximately 2 seconds. You will hear the voice prompt say

only the left ear bud in your left ear. This will allow you to hold the control dongle in
your right hand so that you can see the control buttons and the LED indicator and still
hear the confirming voice prompts in your left ear. Once the ear buds have turned on
and paired with your Bluetooth device you can then place the right ear bud in your
right ear.
