Gently wipe the outside surfaces of the headband, connectors, plastic parts and headband cushion, using a soft cloth moistened with water and mild soap. Take special care when cleaning the ear cushions and the outside surfaces of the earcups. Do not immerse ear cushions in water or any other liquid.
The headset openings must remain clean and free of debris. Check to ensure that the openings on each earcup are clean before each flight. When wiping down the headset earcups, be sure not to force any dirt or debris into the openings. Carefully use tweezers, if necessary, to remove foreign matter that may be lodged in the openings. Do not blow air into or vacuum the openings as this may damage the headset.
Do not attempt to remove, replace, repair or clean this component. Located inside the earcup, the inner screen is critical to proper headset operation. If the screen appears to be damaged or worn out, contact Bose. If the inner screen becomes damp from environmental moisture, such as light rain, dew, perspiration or condensation, allow it to air dry only. Do not use electric heaters, blowers or hairdryer-type devices to dry the inner screen.
