  • Cleaning instructions

Headset and controllers
Wash your hands before using headset. Use nitrile gloves for cleaning and discard them after each use. Between cleanings, wash your hands thoroughly or use a sanitizing gel.

Clean equipment between uses with non-abrasive, antibacterial wipes.

For devices that do not have wipeable face interfaces, use protective masks while following the same cleaning guidelines as above between uses.

Headset Lenses
Use a dry microfiber optical lens cloth to clean the lenses on your headset. Do not use liquid, alcohol-based or chemical cleaners.

Note: Alcohol-based cloths should not be used on the lenses as they may damage them. Alcohol-based wipes should only be used on other headset components. Use them with care.
