Hearing safety

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 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 temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations. Excessive sound pressure from earpieces and headphones can cause hearing loss. Using headphones with both ears covered while driving is not recommended and may be illegal in some areas. For your safety, avoid distractions from music or phone calls while in trac or other potentially dangerous environments.

To achieve the specic IP rating, the charging slot cover must be closed.

Disposal of a battery into re or a hot oven, or mechanically crushing or cutting a battery, can result in an explosion.
