Installation & EMF's
Will WaveBlock™ affect the quality, sound, or Bluetooth range of my earbuds?
Our engineers have worked tirelessly to ensure there is ZERO interference with the electronic operation of your earbuds.
How do I install WaveBlock™?
Application of WaveBlock™ wraps is simple and easy to do, however to ensure installed properly, please follow the instruction guide included in your WaveBlock™ packaging. For easy reference, we have also posted step-by-step installation instructions on our website.
Why should I be concerned about exposure to EMF radiation?
Members of the Scientific Community have identified sufficient data that links exposure to EMF radiation directly to various health problems. In 2019, more than 250 scientists signed a petition calling for the International Public Health Organization to create stronger guidelines on use of wireless devices.
Does Bluetooth® technology have health risks?
There is mounting and alarming evidence that the use of Bluetooth headphones may, over time, be damaging to our health.
Below are several reasons why we might be concerned about over-exposure to Bluetooth technology:
1. Our Skin Acts Like a Sponge
Without a chord, in order for the two ear buds to “connect” they must pass signals directly through your head. Here’s the alarming part: Because our skin is like a sponge, it is absorbing electromagnetic radiation or EMF each time these signals are passed from side to side. The placement of wireless headphones and the length of time they are worn (sometimes for hours at a time), increases the levels of exposure to EMF radiation in your head.
2. What Do Studies Reveal?
Studies are being conducted on how human skin acts as a sub-THz receiver and the health risks of absorbing EMF over time. Some government agencies have down-played these risks, but growing numbers of members of the global scientific community have called on the International Public Health Organization to establish more stringent guidelines on the use of wireless devices, including headphones.
3. What Does the Medical Research Say about EMF?
The American Academy of Environmental Medicine, for one, has long-been studying the adverse biological health effects of EMF radiation on the body. Their research has documented cases of genetic damage, reproductive defects, neurological degeneration and nervous system dysfunction, immune system dysfunction, cancer and other serious health concerns. Other studies have made a connection between EMF radiation and cellular breakdown and interference in cellular communication.
4. What About the Impact on Children?
Research on the impact of EMF radiation on children suggests that because children’s brains are smaller and thinner than adult brains, they are believed to be much more absorbent—in fact, as much as three times more absorbent. This means, for children, EMF exposure and risks are even higher.
5. EMF Radiation: Should You Be Concerned?
Members of the Scientific Community think so. In 2019, more than 250 scientists signed a petition calling for the International Public Health Organization to create stronger guidelines on use of wireless devices. They believe they have sufficient data to link exposure to EMF to various health problems.
Does radiation exposure pose a greater threat to children than adults?
Research on the impact of EMF radiation on children suggests that because children's brains are smaller and thinner than adult brains, they are believed to be much more absorbent - in fact, as much as three times more absorbent. This means that for children, EMF exposure and risks are even higher than adults.
Are there any special steps I need to know about before or after installing WaveBlock™?
Before installing, wipe down your earbuds with the provided alcohol pads. Once earbuds are clean, be sure to dry them thoroughly with the provided soft clean cloth.
After removing WaveBlock™, be sure to remove any residual adhesive. Adhesive can be removed with a clean cloth.
How does the technology work?
A thorough description of our lab-tested technology is provided in our product video at the bottom of the home page. Please view that video for answers.
I have an EMF tester at home and didn't get the same reading as you mentioned.
Home testing is much different than lab testing. WaveBlock tests all our products in controlled environments, with faraday cages, which are free of other devices. Your home readings can be affected with interference from wifi routers, cell phones, lap tops and modems. Any of these could affect the reading. Our labs are certified and free of outside interference.
What benefits have WaveBlock users reported?
Reduced headaches, reduced ringing in the ears and less brain fog have been common responses we've heard from happy customers.
About the product
Is WaveBlock™ technology validated by a reputable 3rd Party?
Yes. WaveBlock™ technology and performance are verified in independent, FCC-certified third party labs. The labs we work with are the same labs that test mobile devices, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi for FCC regulatory compliance.
Will my earbuds still fit in the charging case with WaveBlock™?
They are engineered to fit perfectly in any charging case.
Will I feel the WaveBlock™ wrap in my ear?
We designed these with premium materials to deliver maximum durability and versatility. There are absolutely no ear sensitivities. You will not even know they are on.
Will WaveBlock™ wraps still work if I get them wet?
We have applied durable coating to our WaveBlock™ products, as well as integrated a corrosion-proof treatment.
WaveBlock™ has been tested in extreme conditions, including mud and snow. We are proud to say they have endured every test we put them through and continue to perform.
If you ever have any issues, we are here to help.
Is WaveBlock™ reusable?
WaveBlock™ iProtect stickers are reusable, and can be reapplied to your cell phone if a protective case is used. WaveBlock™ headphone protection (including AirPod and Skull Candy) cannot be reused.
Is WaveBlock™ difficult to remove?
WaveBlock™ wraps are very easy to remove. You can peel them off of your earbuds at any time, however if you attempt to re-apply, they may not adhere as securely a second time.
How long do WaveBlock last?
WaveBlock stickers have no expire date on their effectiveness. The greatest impact on their duration is how customers treat their earbuds. For instance, sticking the earbuds in your pockets will accumulate lint, and lessen their effectiveness. If you're rough on them, or an extreme sports user, you might consider our 6 month replacement program for classic or pro.
Classic & Pro
What is the difference between Classic and Pro stickers?
Classic is designed for the longer stem earbuds, like the original Apple product. Pro is designed for the smaller stem earbuds, which is the newest model of Apple Airpods.
Why might my stickers be peeling?
It could be affected by oily hands during the original install, stuffing the earbuds in the pocket (absorbing lint) instead of storing them in their case or pulling the sticker off and repositioning it (stickers should only be applied once). Any of these three factors could cause the sticker to peel.
I am wanting to order WaveBlock as a gift but don't know the type of earbud the recipient uses. Which should I order?
Following the application of the sticker, I am having connectivity issues.
Please revisit our instruction video and determine if the sticker was applied correctly. If the problem persists, please contact WaveBlock.
I've received communication that my product was delivered but I haven't yet received it. What's going on?
There is often a 1 day lag time between delivery communication and actual delivery.
I ordered the wrong size for my phone - what do I do?
