Unhappy [Health Risk] CrossRoads MylarOne X3 Screen

Just wanted to alert everybody using CrossRoads MylarOne X3 that there is a little screen that can fall off into your ear canal.

A very painful experiences causing a trip to the hospital.


The little screen is only held on by some adhesive. Evidently it breaks down from earwax/sweat.

I recommend removing the screen with a pair of tweezers, then clean up the residue with a swab dipped in alcohol.

Another screen is deeper inside and cannot come loose. The outer one is redundant and is a health hazard.

Wow, that is very unfortunate, I hope everything turned out for the best. And thanks for the warning!

But I don't really understand what you mean by 'screen' could you perhaps indicate on a picture what it is?

It's the protective screen at the end of the nozzle to keep wax and stuff from entering the housing thru nozzle. You can see it when you pop off the ear tip. I’ve never had a problem with my X3, X3i or the XB, but had to re-glue that housing back together on the XB and sold off the X3i.

huh...thanks for the warning and sorry for your hospital trip.

Have you considered letting Crossroads know about this? I would guess they might be interested...
