On the X5A earmuffs in addition to removing the original hygiene kit you need to detach the silver plastic adapter plates from the original ear pads. Without these the hygiene kit will not attach.
I was not aware of this when ordering, I assumed that the whole earpiece would be replaced as in other kits, such as in the below video, but that is not the case.
I'm writing this review to warn anyone ordering this kit not to preemptively throw out the whole original hygiene kit along with the required the adapter plates as I almost did.ProtectionRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5QualityRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5ComfortRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
