Avoid prolonged use of the wireless headset. Take a break at about 15-minute intervals. Permanent hearing loss may occur if the headset is used at high volume. Set the volume to a safe level.

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. If the internal battery fluid leaks, stop using the product immediately and contact technical support for assistance. If the fluid gets on to your clothes, skin or into your eyes, immediately rinse the affected area with clean water and consult your doctor. The battery fluid can cause blindness.
