Apply a little pressure but not too much, just enough to get rid of any smudges and fingerprints. After a few uses, it is recommended that you wash the microfiber by hand before you use it again, just to get rid of any accumulated dirt and grime from previous uses.

    With this headset, you can listen your music and have your cell phone conversations in high quality sound. When your calls come in, all you need to do, is to select a button to answer your phone calls. However, if you would rather remove the earbuds until you are finished with your conversation, you can simply throw them over your shoulder and have them lock together behind your head via the built in magnets. But they are comfortable and lightweight so you probably won’t want to take them from your ears.

    This stereo headset can be ordered directly from HP.
