FAQ
Are the CB-1 Headphones wireless?
No. They use the standard 3.5mm connector, and include a ¼ inch adapter for professional A/V gear.

What’s the fit of the CB-1?
The CB-1 headphones are “over-ear”, a.k.a. “circumaural” headphones. They completely enclose the ear, and will reduce the amount of outside noise that can leak in. They are extremely comfortable for long-term use.
Are the earpads removable? Can I replace them with aftermarket earpads?
Yes, the CB-1 earpads are removable. We don't recommend the use of aftermarket pads. If you are in need of replacement OEM earpads, please contact us.

Are the cables removable? Can I use aftermarket cables?
Yes. If you are having trouble removing the cables from the headphone, please note there is a locking mechanism - a quarter turn clockwise will lock them, and a quarter turn counter-clockwise will unlock them.

You can use just about any 3.5mm cable with the CB-1, but it will not have the locking mechanism of the original cable.
