They are adjustable for easy comfort and are compatible with all-in-vehicle audio/video applications. Each headphone requires 2 AAA batteries. A sample of the merchandise was submitted to this office and is being returned to you as per your request.

The applicable subheading for the Automotive Infrared Stereo Headphone System will be 8518.30.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Headphones, earphones and combined microphone/speaker sets: Other.” The rate of duty will be 4.9 percent ad valorem.
