1 Important safety


Hearing Safety


To avoid hearing damage, limit the time you use headphones at high volume and set the volume to a safe level. The louder the volume, the shorter the safe listening time is.

Be sure to observe the following guide- lines when using your headphone. Listen at reasonable volumes for

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

continuously upwards as your hearing adapts.

Do not turn up the volume so high that you can't hear what's around you.

You should use caution or tempo- rarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can cause hearing loss.

Using headphones with both ears covered while driving is not recom- mended and may be illegal in some areas while driving.

For your safety, avoid distractions from music or phone calls while in trac or other potentially dangerous environments.
