French term or phrase: ailettes (MP3 player)
CONTEXT:

"Les ailettes sont souples et facile à régler."

In reference to an underwater MP3 player. Does it mean that this device has fins or am I misinterpreting it? TIA.

flanges/flange tips
Explanation:
Without further context I would imagine that these are the flanges inside the earpieces, which increase the seal when underwater.

This is quite a clear picture:

In addition, the headphones also comes with three variety of sizes of interchangeable triple flange rubberized earpieces that can be use for secure and tailored fit.

agree  Gallagy: looks likely!

  -> Thanks gallagy2

agree  kashew: Flange seems logical - but the qualifying "adjustable (facile à régler)" doesn't quite fit the image of ther plugs in your first ref. // Yes, easy to fit snug seems the idea - it does say "souples".

  -> Thanks kashew. I think it is more "régler" in the sense of "fitting in the ears" in this instance.
