Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing comfort level adapts to higher volumes of sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds normal can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. To guard against this, set your volume to a safe level before your hearing adapts and leave it there.

To establish a safe volume level: Set your volume control at a low setting. Slowly increase the sound until you can

hear it comfortably and clearly, without distortion.

Listen for reasonable periods of time: Prolonged exposure to sound, even

at normally safe levels, can also cause hearing loss.

Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and take appropriate breaks.

Be sure to observe the following guidelines when using your headphones. Listen at reasonable volumes for

reasonable periods of time. Be careful not to adjust the volume as

your hearing adapts. Do not turn up the volume so high that

you cant hear whats around you. You should use caution or temporarily

discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations. Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.


Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure or other unsafe operation.
