0. To understand normal and excessive ear humidity
a. Normal humidity level in ears: Healthy ears should have humidity levels between 40% and 69%.
In healthy ears, humidity varies between 40% and 69%, depending on surrounding spaces, weather, and physical condition.
In this case, dehumidification is not required in your ears. However, in cases where they exceed 70%, please dehumidify them to decrease humidity.
b. Removing humidity vs. Removing water/sweat.
(Approximately 30 seconds is required to remove humidity from the ear, and about 3 minutes for water and sweat to be removed.)
You should be able to remove the general humidity from your ears within thirty seconds. However, the humidity level within your ear may rise again after a certain period of time if sweat or water remain on your skin or if your earwax is too wet.
DearBuds PE removes moisture/sweat from your ears in 3 minutes. Besides drying the skin in your ears, it also reduces humidity by drying earwax.
TIPS: Drying the ears through dehumidification inhibits earwax production even at normal humidity levels.
c. Humidity rebound
💠 40% to 69% before dehumidification —> 40% to 69% after dehumidification (similar level).
When dehumidifying within the normal humidity range, humidity levels should return to normal.
As a result of body temperature and surrounding environment, the ears converge to normal humidity levels over time. Despite a drop of 10-20% through dehumidification, the normal level will still be reached.
Thus, it is the same as when you temporarily lower the normal level of your body temperature with ice packs, but returns to normal after a time.
💠 70% to 99% before dehumidification —> 40% to 69% after dehumidification
When humidity is temporarily raised due to sweating, exercise, showers, or changes in the surrounding environment, dehumidification can be lowered to normal levels.
💠 When '70% to 99% before dehumidification —> 70% to 99% after dehumidification' happens
🔔 First case
The ear is dehumidified, but the humidity remaining in the ear evaporates again after dehumidification,
filling it with humidity again. In this case, you will reach the normal range if you use it repeatedly to remove moisture.
🔔 Second case
If it is repeatedly dehumidified but kept at high humidity for a certain period of time,
there is a high chance of ear infections occurring.
If this occurs, visit the hospital for an accurate diagnosis and treatment,
and reduce the moisture in your ears frequently with DearBuds to prevent recurrences.

d. Dehumidification and ModesPress Main Button
1st - L1
2nd - L2
3rd - A
4th - OFF
f. How to position the EAR TIP
First, as shown in the picture on the right side, slide in the larger 'ear cap' and insert the 'ear tip' in the middle. This process should result in filtering in a vertical direction. (Please refer to the picture on the right►)
A – Once the humidity falls below the proper level, the device automatically turns off.
(Min 30 seconds/Max 3 minutes)
L1 (Soft mode) – For pets with sensitive hearing (3mins)
L2 (Normal Mode) – Typical daily use (3mins)
S (Standby) – Measurement only (3mins)
In a stronger mode, the air ventilation strength is greater
g. How to use the device
The first step is to tilt your pet's ears back so that you can see the holes inside.
Make sure the ear tip is inserted deep enough so it covers the entire ear of the pet, as if it were a thermometer.
2. Device settings

3. How to keep your device clean
• Cleaning the Eartip
It's common for pets to have a lot of hair in their ears, so their hair sticks to the eartips.
It is best to remove hair from the eartip and ear cap after using them.
You can also separate the ear tip and ear cap, wash them under running water, dry them, and put them back together.
• To remove hair
Tweezers, tape, or a vacuum can be used to remove hair from DearBuds.
• Cleaning mode Tips
In DearBuds, if there is a noise during operation, it is a signal to run the cleaning mode.
Once the Dearbuds fan has been cleaned, it will spin evenly and the noise should disappear.
4. General Tips
a. Getting familiar with unfamiliar devices
If it is their first time looking at an unfamiliar figure, pets may be wary.
It is recommended to use DearBuds to pets after a certain period of getting used to it.
b. Finding your way around the device (from low mode)
With DearBuds, your pet will easily adapt to the low decibels.
Start by dehumidifying it with L1 mode. Once you get used to it, please switch to L2 and A mode.
c. Using the device wisely – Behind the Ear
When DearBuds first appears in your pet's view, they may feel frightened.
It is possible to dehumidify longer without creating discomfort for your pets when the dehumidifier is brought from behind their ears.
d. Select a place free of disturbances
Dehumidify in a place where pets cannot move or run away from outside interference.
e. Compensate properly after dehumidifying the ears
Your pets will be more willing to dehumidify your ears if you reward them with snacks after you dehumidify them.
f. Avoid using cotton swabs to clean ears
Using a cotton swab pushes earwax into your ear canal.
With DearBuds, we ensure a non-harmful dehumidification service. Relax your ears and enjoy the moment!
