Your FREEDOM 2 headphones come with the wing and tip combo in 4 sizes (size 1-4), Speedfit Cord Management (integrated) and a shirt clip to give you the most secure fit possible. Check out the steps below as a guide to get the best fit.
Under-ear fit -- The wing/tip combo is installed so the point of the wing is above the headphones and cable. When in the ear, the cable comes straight down towards the bottom of the ear and the point of the wing is nestled in your ear.
Over-ear Sport fit -- The wing/tip combo is installed so the point of the wing is above the headphones and pointing to the cable. When in the ear, the cable goes towards the front of the ear and wraps up and over the ear, then back down at the back of the ear. This ensures the weight of the cable is being supported by your ears and provides the most secure fit.
