FAQs & How-Tos
How does ShareMe work?
For models E40BT and E50BT Connect the first headphone by BT to your mobile device Tap the ShareMe button once Tap the ShareMe button on the 2nd headphones twice ( ! ) The headphones will connect to each other. When changing volume on source device, or BT connected headphones, the volume will only change on THAT headphone ( and in some cases the source device, like iOS devices and newer Android ), not on the one connected via ShareMe. When changing volume on a via-ShareMe-connected headphone ( 2nd ), it will not change volume on source device, or on the BT-connected headphone. To sum up, both headphones have their individual volumes. For Everest models ( not ELITE ). Connect the headphones by BT to your mobile device Put the 2nd device ( speaker, headphones as long as they have Bluetooth ) in "BT discovery mode" Press the ShareMe button on the Everest headphone ( button marked with a little "s" ) The Everest will connect to BT device. (Please note that you may not be able to pair from the Everest to the Everest Elite models, or if you can pair, you may have dropouts in sound). When changing volume on source device, or Everest, the volume will only change on the Everest ( and in some cases the source device, like iOS devices and newer Android ), not on the device connected via ShareMe. When changing volume on via-ShareMe-connected BT device ( 2nd ), it will not change volume on source device or Everest. Please note that it is NOT possible to use ShareMe if you are listening to analog signal via cable. Bot the E-series and the Everest models will switch off the Bluetooth circuits as soon as you insert the audio cable, so re-transmission is not possible.
Can the carrying case from the Elite 300 and 700 be used for the Everest 300BT and 700BT?
Yes, the two model 300 versions are of identical size, and so are the two model 700 versions. The carrying cases can be purchased as spare parts.
How do I use the ShareMe option on my Headphones?The ShareMe button is marked with an S in a circle, and must be clicked briefly. Do not keep the button pressed. Step 4 may go wrong if not done correctly. Please make sure that you have the second Everest 300 turned off. Now press AND HOLD the on/off button for about 15 seconds. The LED must switch to white/red blinking to indicate that it is actually in BT pairing mode. Now simply wait until the two headphones have communicated with each other, and established the BT connection. The white led below the S buttons will light constantly on both headphones when the ShareMe connection is ready. Now you just begin music play on the source, and both headphones will play.
Why can’t I hang up the call by pressing MFB button?
Please check your OS version. If you are using an iPhone with OS version of 8.3 or lower , please upgrade your system to the latest version.
Can the ear pads of Everest 300 be replaced by owner?
The Everest 300 ear pads can be replaced by owner, but it is not easy, and removing the old pads may damage them. So, it is not a bad idea to have new pads at hand before removing the old ones. Since they are glued in place with double-adhesive tape, it is necessary to rip them off with care. After removing the old ones, clean off any residue of the double-adhesive tape that held them in place from the headphone pods. Then remove the protective layer on the new pads, exposing the adhesive. Carefully align the new pad before pressing the edge. This is to prevent the glue from sticking before you get the pad into the right position. When the pad sits correctly, you can press the edge all the way round to make the adhesive stick securely.
How do I reset my Everest or Everest Elite headphone to pair with another Bluetooth source?
With the headphone in OFF state, press and hold the ON/OFF button for about 7 seconds for the Everest, 16 seconds for the Everest ELITE models. (ELITE changes to 7 seconds as well from software 0.5.6). Bluetooth memory is now erased, and new pairings can be made. An ELITE headphone permits pairing with one source device at a time. If you do not want to do a complete reset as described above, you can use the following method. Without reset, ELITE will try to re-pair with the last source when switched ON. If the last source is not detected, maybe because you want to use another source device, switch the ELITE off and on again, and make sure that the last source device you used is no longer switched ON. This way the ELITE will not be able to "see" the old source, and it will search for a new one. Now the ELITE will again search for the last paired source, and since it cannot find it after some seconds, it will switch back to be open for pairing with a new source. The LED will blink red/blue as an indication of this. The Everest BT models permit pairing with two source devices simultaneously. If you have used both source pairings, and want to pair to a third source, please perform the reset as described above (hold the ON/OFF button for about 7 seconds with the Everest OFF). Now you can again pair two source devices.

Removing the Ear Cups
- Place the headphones on a table and while holding the ear cup with one hand gently and slowly insert the tip of the screwdriver between the ear cup and headphones.
- Once inserted gently twist the screwdriver until there is a slight separation between the ear cup and the headphones. Note: Do not twist the screwdriver too much as this may damage the headphones.
- Continue step 1 and 2 moving the screwdriver until there is gap between the cup and the headphones all the around the cup.
Installing the New ear Cups
- Hold the ear cups tightly with one hand while holding the headphones with the other and gently pull until the cup is completely separated. Note that some headphones may have more adhesive than others so more pressure might be required to remove the ear cup.
- Find the replacement ear cup that matches the side removed (they are labeled L and R inside the cup). Align the letter in the cup so that it is legible with the bar at the top.
- Gently press the ear cup into place ensure that the pins remain aligned.
- Once there is a slight click sound press more firmly to set the ear cup into place.
Do the normal BT models have voice prompt, or can it be changed?
Yes , all 5 models have voice prompts. The Elite models have the added option of turning off the voice prompts in the settings menu of the app. The Everest 300 and 700, as well as the successors 310 and 710, have the option of choosing between voice prompts and tone prompts. This is how you do it: Switch the headphones ON. Press and hold the Shareme and the Volume Plus buttons for about two seconds. Switch the headphones OFF. You will now hear the OFF prompt having changed to the prompt you did not use before, and you will hear this one until you change it again.
