WARNING To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high volume levels for long periods.


Carefully read the information in this instruction manual and on the package before using this product. Also read the instructions for the PlayStation3 system. Retain all documentation for future reference.

Safety Observe all warnings, precautions and instructions. CHOKING HAZARD - Contains small parts. Keep out of the reach of small children.

Use and handling Stop using the system immediately if you begin to feel tired or if you experience discomfort or pain in your head while operating the wireless stereo headset. If the condition persists, consult a doctor.

The vibration function of the wireless stereo headset can aggravate injuries. Do not use the vibration function if you have any ailment or injury to the bones, joints or muscles of your head.

Avoid prolonged use of the wireless stereo headset. Take a break at about 30-minute intervals.

Permanent hearing loss may occur if the headset is used at high volume. Set the volume to a safe level. Over time, increasingly loud audio may start to sound normal but can actually be damaging to your hearing. If you experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume, the sooner your hearing could be affected. To protect your hearing:

Limit the amount of time you use the headset at high volume. Avoid raising the volume to block out noisy surroundings. Lower the volume if you cant hear people speaking near you.

If you feel that the headset is irritating your skin, stop using it immediately. Do not expose the headset to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight. Do not put heavy objects on the headset. Do not allow liquid or small particles to get into the headset. Do not throw or drop the headset or subject it to strong physical shock. Do not place any rubber or vinyl materials on the headset exterior for an extended period of time.

Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the headset. Do not use solvents or other chemicals. Do not wipe with a chemically treated cleaning cloth.

Do not disassemble or insert anything into the headset because this may cause damage to the internal components or cause injury to you.

Observe all signs and instructions that require an electrical device or radio product to be switched off in designated areas, such as gas/refuelling stations, hospitals, blasting areas, potentially explosive atmospheres or aircraft.

The battery used in this device may present a risk of fire or chemical burn if mistreated. Do not disassemble, heat above 60C, or incinerate.

NOTE: This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. Increase the distance between the equipment and receiver. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
