Beat BYRD, Soul BYRD, and Blue BYRD (1st generation) of the beyerdynamic BYRD series are equipped with a wax guard to ensure an especially long service life, in other words, they come with a small filter in the sound outlet that can be replaced by the user. This wax guard offers effective protection against penetrating dirt (dust, earwax, etc.) and can be replaced in the event of impurities. It is simply fitted with a snap-in mechanism for this purpose. You can carefully lift out the wax guard using a short, pointed object, such as a pin. Then simply insert the new wax guard with your fingertips until you hear it click into place. A set of 4 pieces of these wax guards is also available as a spare part in our online shop.
Please note that the wax guard is only compatible with Blue BYRD (1st generation) and not with Blue BYRD (2nd generation).
