joined from multiple accounts to consolidate duplicates, and so
on. If you find duplicate entries in Contacts, you can join them
into a single entry, as described in “Joining contacts” on page 89.

synced to that account on the web, but the information from the
Exchange ActiveSync account remains unchanged.

Safety
TIA Safety Information
The following is the complete TIA Safety Information for wireless
handheld phones.
k Tips on Efficient Operation
Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily when the phone is in use.
Contact with the antenna affects call quality and may cause the phone
to consume more power than otherwise needed.
k Driving
Talking on the phone while driving is extremely dangerous and is
illegal in some states. Remember, safety comes first. Check the laws
and regulations on the use of phones in the areas where you drive.
Always obey them.
If you must use your phone while driving, please:
• Give full attention to driving. Driving safely is your first responsibility.
• Use hands-free operation and/or one-touch, speed dialing, and auto
answer modes.
• Pull off the road and park before placing or answering a call.
An air bag inflates with great force. DO NOT place objects, including
either installed or portable wireless equipment, in the area over the air
bag or in the air bag deployment area.
If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly installed and the air bag
Safety
inflates, serious injury could result.
Warning!
Failure to follow these instructions could lead to serious personal
injury and possible property damage.
276
k Electronic Devices
Your wireless handheld portable telephone is a low power radio
transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and also sends out
radio frequency (RF) signals.
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from RF energy.
However, certain electronic equipment may not be shielded against
the RF signals from your wireless phone. Therefore, use of your phone
must be restricted in certain situations.
Pacemakers
The Health Industry Manufacturers Association recommends that
a minimum separation of six (6) inches be maintained between
a handheld wireless phone and a pacemaker to avoid potential
interference with the pacemaker. These recommendations are
consistent with the independent research by and recommendations of
Wireless Technology Research.
Never come closer than six (6) inches to a person with a heart
pacemaker implant when using your phone. Doing so could result in
interference with the function of the pacemaker.
Persons with pacemakers:
• ALWAYS keep the phone more than six (6) inches from your
pacemaker when the phone is turned on.
• Do not carry the phone in a breast pocket.
• Use the ear opposite the pacemaker to minimize the potential for
interference.
• If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place,
Safety
turn your phone OFF immediately.
Hearing Aids
Some digital wireless phones may interfere with some hearing aids. In
the event of such interference, you may want to consult your service
provider (or call the customer service line to discuss alternatives).
277
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the
manufacturer of your device to determine if they are adequately
shielded from external RF energy. Your physician may be able to
assist you in obtaining this information.
Hospitals and Health Care Facilities
Turn your phone OFF in health care facilities when any regulations
posted in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care
facilities may be using equipment that could be sensitive to external
RF energy.
k Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded
electronic systems in motor vehicles. Check with the manufacturer or
its representative regarding your vehicle. You should also consult the
manufacturer of any equipment that has been added to your vehicle.
k Posted Facilities
Turn your phone OFF where posted notices so require.
k Aircraft
FCC regulations prohibit using your phone while in the air. Turn your
phone OFF before boarding an aircraft.
Always request and obtain prior consent and approval of an
Safety
authorized airline representative before using your phone aboard an
aircraft. Always follow the instructions of the airline representative
whenever using your phone aboard an aircraft, to prevent any
possible interference with airborne electronic equipment.
278
k Blasting Areas
To avoid interfering with blasting operations, turn your phone OFF
when in a “blasting area” or in areas posted “Turn off two-way radio”.
Obey all signs and instructions.
k Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn your phone OFF when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in such areas
could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or even
death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not
always, clearly marked. They include fueling areas such as gas
stations; below deck on boats; fuel or chemical transfer or storage
facilities; vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or
butane); areas where the air contains chemicals or articles, such as
grain, dust, or metal powders; and any other area where you would
normally be advised to turn off your vehicle’s engine.
Safety Information for FCC RF Exposure
Warning!
Read this information before using.
In August 1996 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
of the United States with its action in Report and Order FCC 96326 adopted an updated safety standard for human exposure to
transmitters. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standard
Safety
radio frequency electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC regulated
previously set by both U.S. and international standards bodies. The
design of this phone complies with the FCC guidelines and these
international standards.
279
k SAR information
THIS MODEL PHONE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S
REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed
and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure
to radiofrequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications
Commission of the U.S. Government. These limits are part of
comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy
for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards
that were developed by independent scientific organizations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards
include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of
measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The
SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg.* Tests for SAR are conducted
with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in
all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the
highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while
operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because
the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to
use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the
closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power
output. Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it
must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the
Safety
limit established by the government adopted requirement for safe
exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (e.g., at
the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model.
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets
the FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory that
contains no metal and that positions the handset a minimum of 2.0 cm
from the body. Non-compliance with the above restrictions may result
280
in violation of FCC RF Exposure guidelines.
The highest SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at
the ear is 1.13W/Kg and when worn on the body, as described in
this guide, is 1.44W/Kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among
phone models, depending upon available accessories and FCC
requirements). While there may be differences between the SAR
levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the
government requirement for safe exposure.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model
phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with
the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model
phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display
Grant section of
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching on TYKNX9320.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be
found on the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) web-site at http://www.ctia.org.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones
used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram
of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety
to give additional protection for the public and to account for any
variations in measurements.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
for a class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
Safety
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment
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
281
interference to 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 separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
k FCC Compliance Information
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) This device must accept any interference received.
Including interference that may cause undesired operation.
CAUTION
The user who makes changes or modifications to the unit without
the express approval by the manufacturer will void user authority to
operate the equipment.
FDA Information
U.S. Food and Drug Administration
Cell Phone Facts
Safety
Consumer Information on Wireless Phones
k What kinds of phones are the subject of this
update?
The term “wireless phone” refers here to hand-held wireless phones
with built-in antennas, often called “cell,”“mobile,” or “PCS” phones.
These types of wireless phones can expose the user to measurable
radiofrequency energy (RF) because of the short distance between
the phone and the user’s head. These RF exposures are limited by
282
Federal Communications Commission safety guidelines that were
developed with the advice of FDA and other federal health and safety
agencies. When the phone is located at greater distances from the
user, the exposure to RF is drastically lower because a person’s RF
exposure decreases rapidly with increasing distance from the source.
The so-called “cordless phones,” which have a base unit connected
to the telephone wiring in a house, typically operate at far lower
power levels, and thus produce RF exposures well within the FCC’s
compliance limits.
k Do wireless phones pose a health hazard?
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health
problems are associated with using wireless phones. There is no
proof, however, that wireless phones are absolutely safe. Wireless
phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy (RF) in the
microwave range while being used. They also emit very low levels
of RF when in the stand-by mode. Whereas high levels of RF can
produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low level RF
that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse
health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures have not
found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that
some biological effects may occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research. In some cases, other researchers
have had difficulty in reproducing those studies, or in determining the
reasons for inconsistent results.
Safety
k What is FDA’s role concerning the safety of wireless
phones?
Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting
consumer products such as wireless phones before they can be sold,
as it does with new drugs or medical devices. However, the agency
has authority to take action if wireless phones are shown to emit
283
radiofrequency energy (RF) at a level that is hazardous to the user. In
such a case, FDA could require the manufacturers of wireless phones
to notify users of the health hazard and to repair, replace or recall the
phones so that the hazard no longer exists.
Although the existing scientific data do not justify FDA regulatory
actions, FDA has urged the wireless phone industry to take a number
of steps, including the following:
• Support needed research into possible biological effects of RF of
the type emitted by wireless phones;
• Design wireless phones in a way that minimizes any RF exposure to
the user that is not necessary for device function; and
• Cooperate in providing users of wireless phones with the best
possible information on possible effects of wireless phone use on
human health
FDA belongs to an interagency working group of the federal agencies
that have responsibility for different aspects of RF safety to ensure
coordinated efforts at the federal level. The following agencies belong
to this working group:
• National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
• Environmental Protection Agency
• Federal Communications Commission
• Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• National Telecommunications and Information Administration
The National Institutes of Health participates in some interagency
Safety
working group activities, as well.
FDA shares regulatory responsibilities for wireless phones with the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC). All phones that are sold
in the United States must comply with FCC safety guidelines that limit
RF exposure. FCC relies on FDA and other health agencies for safety
questions about wireless phones.
FCC also regulates the base stations that the wireless phone networks
284
rely upon. While these base stations operate at higher power than
do the wireless phones themselves, the RF exposures that people
get from these base stations are typically thousands of times lower
than those they can get from wireless phones. Base stations are
thus not the primary subject of the safety questions discussed in this
document.
k What are the results of the research done already?
The research done thus far has produced conflicting results, and
many studies have suffered from flaws in their research methods.
Animal experiments investigating the effects of radiofrequency
energy (RF) exposures characteristic of wireless phones have
yielded conflicting results that often cannot be repeated in other
laboratories. A few animal studies, however, have suggested that low
levels of RF could accelerate the development of cancer in laboratory
animals. However, many of the studies that showed increased tumor
development used animals that had been genetically engineered
or treated with cancer-causing chemicals so as to be pre-disposed
to develop cancer in the absence of RF exposure. Other studies
exposed the animals to RF for up to 22 hours per day. These
conditions are not similar to the conditions under which people use
wireless phones, so we don’t know with certainty what the results of
such studies mean for human health.
Three large epidemiology studies have been published since
December 2000. Between them, the studies investigated any possible
association between the use of wireless phones and primary brain
brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. None of the
Safety
cancer, glioma, meningioma, or acoustic neuroma, tumors of the
studies demonstrated the existence of any harmful health effects
from wireless phone RF exposures. However, none of the studies
can answer questions about long-term exposures, since the average
period of phone use in these studies was around three years.
285
k What research is needed to decide whether RF
exposure from wireless phones poses a health
risk?
A combination of laboratory studies and epidemiological studies of
people actually using wireless phones would provide some of the
data that are needed. Lifetime animal exposure studies could be
completed in a few years. However, very large numbers of animals
would be needed to provide reliable proof of a cancer promoting
effect if one exists. Epidemiological studies can provide data that
is directly applicable to human populations, but 10 or more years’
follow-up may be needed to provide answers about some health
effects, such as cancer. This is because the interval between the
time of exposure to a cancer-causing agent and the time tumors
develop—if they do—may be many, many years. The interpretation
of epidemiological studies is hampered by difficulties in measuring
actual RF exposure during day-to-day use of wireless phones. Many
factors affect this measurement, such as the angle at which the phone
is held, or which model of phone is used.
k What is FDA doing to find out more about the
possible health effects of wireless phone RF?
FDA is working with the U.S. National Toxicology Program and with
groups of investigators around the world to ensure that high priority
animal studies are conducted to address important questions about
the effects of exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF).
Safety
FDA has been a leading participant in the World Health Organization
International Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) Project since its
inception in 1996. An influential result of this work has been the
development of a detailed agenda of research needs that has driven
the establishment of new research programs around the world.
The Project has also helped develop a series of public information
documents on EMF issues.
286
FDA and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association
(CTIA) have a formal Cooperative Research and Development
Agreement (CRADA) to do research on wireless phone safety. FDA
provides the scientific oversight, obtaining input from experts in
government, industry, and academic organizations. CTIA-funded
research is conducted through contracts to independent investigators.
The initial research will include both laboratory studies and studies of
wireless phone users.
The CRADA will also include a broad assessment of additional
research needs in the context of the latest research developments
around the world.
k What steps can I take to reduce my exposure to
radiofrequency energy from my wireless phone?
If there is a risk from these products—and at this point we do not
know that there is—it is probably very small.
But if you are concerned about avoiding even potential risks, you can
take a few simple steps to minimize your exposure to radiofrequency
energy (RF). Since time is a key factor in how much exposure a
person receives, reducing the amount of time spent using a wireless
phone will reduce RF exposure.
• If you must conduct extended conversations by wireless phone
every day, you could place more distance between your body and
the source of the RF, since the exposure level drops off dramatically
with distance. For example, you could use a headset and carry
the wireless phone away from your body or use a wireless phone
Safety
connected to a remote antenna.
Again, the scientific data do not demonstrate that wireless phones
are harmful. But if you are concerned about the RF exposure from
these products, you can use measures like those described above to
reduce your RF exposure from wireless phone use.
287
k What about children using wireless phones?
The scientific evidence does not show a danger to users of wireless
phones, including children and teenagers. If you want to take steps
to lower exposure to radiofrequency energy (RF), the measures
described above would apply to children and teenagers using
wireless phones. Reducing the time of wireless phone use and
increasing the distance between the user and the RF source will
reduce RF exposure.
Some groups sponsored by other national governments have advised
that children be discouraged from using wireless phones at all. For
example, the government in the United Kingdom distributed leaflets
containing such a recommendation in December 2000. They noted
that no evidence exists that using a wireless phone causes brain
tumors or other ill effects. Their recommendation to limit wireless
phone use by children was strictly precautionary; it was not based on
scientific evidence that any health hazard exists.
k Do hands-free kits for wireless phones reduce risks
from exposure to RF emissions?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from
wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that hands-free kits
reduce risks. Hands-free kits can be used with wireless phones for
convenience and comfort. These systems reduce the absorption of
RF energy in the head because the phone, which is the source of the
RF emissions, will not be placed against the head.
Safety
On the other hand, if the phone is mounted against the waist or other
part of the body during use, then that part of the body will absorb
more RF energy. Wireless phones marketed in the U.S. are required to
meet safety requirements regardless of whether they are used against
the head or against the body. Either configuration should result in
compliance with the safety limit.
288
k Do wireless phone accessories that claim to shield
the head from RF radiation work?
Since there are no known risks from exposure to RF emissions from
wireless phones, there is no reason to believe that accessories
that claim to shield the head from those emissions reduce risks.
Some products that claim to shield the user from RF absorption
use special phone cases, while others involve nothing more than
a metallic accessory attached to the phone. Studies have shown
that these products generally do not work as advertised. Unlike
“hands-free” kits, these so-called “shields” may interfere with proper
operation of the phone. The phone may be forced to boost its power
to compensate, leading to an increase in RF absorption. In February
2002, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) charged two companies
that sold devices that claimed to protect wireless phone users from
radiation with making false and unsubstantiated claims. According to
FTC, these defendants lacked a reasonable basis to substantiate their
claim.
k What about wireless phone interference with
medical equipment?
Radiofrequency energy (RF) from wireless phones can interact with
some electronic devices. For this reason, FDA helped develop a
detailed test method to measure electromagnetic interference (EMI)
of implanted cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from wireless
telephones.
This test method is now part of a standard sponsored by the
The final draft, a joint effort by FDA, medical device manufacturers,
Safety
Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI).
and many other groups, was completed in late 2000. This standard
will allow manufacturers to ensure that cardiac pacemakers and
defibrillators are safe from wireless phone EMI.
FDA has tested hearing aids for interference from handheld wireless
289
phones and helped develop a voluntary standard sponsored by the
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). This standard
specifies test methods and performance requirements for hearing
aids and wireless phones so that no interference occurs when a
person uses a “compatible” phone and a “compatible” hearing aid at
the same time. This standard was approved by the IEEE in 2000.
FDA continues to monitor the use of wireless phones for possible
interactions with other medical devices. Should harmful interference
be found to occur, FDA will conduct testing to assess the interference
and work to resolve the problem.

Emergency Calls
Never rely solely upon your wireless phone for essential
communications (e.g., medical emergencies), if it can be
avoided, since a wireless phone requires a complex combination of
radio signals, relay stations and landline networks for its operation.
Consequently, emergency calls may not always be possible
under all conditions on all wireless phone systems. Your wireless
phone, however, may sometimes be the only available means
of communication at the scene of an accident. When making an
emergency call, always give the recipient all necessary information as
accurately as possible. Never terminate an emergency call until you
Safety
have received clearance to do so.
k FCC Enhanced 911 (E911) Rules
Background
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires wireless
carriers to transmit specific latitude and longitude location (Automatic
Location Identification = ALI) information as well as “911” calls to
290
Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) to identify the location of
the caller in case of emergency. Generally, the rules require that
carriers identify an E911 caller’s location within 50 meters of the actual
location for 67 percent of calls and within 150 meters of the actual
location for 95 percent of calls.
k CASIO G’zOne Commando™ — ALI Capability
The Commando™ is an ALI-capable phone equipped with a GPS
(Global Positioning System) receiver supporting a satellite-based GPS
ALI-capable network to comply with the FCC’s ALI requirements.
The network compliance with the above FCC requirements is
dependent on: (a) the use of digital technology by the wireless
network; (b) GPS satellite signals being able to reach the handset
(such transmissions do not always work indoors, for example); and (c)
handset signals reaching wireless “base stations” (atmospheric and
environmental conditions may cause variations in handset receiving
signal strength).
Also the transmission of the ALI information is subject, in part, to
system constraints within the wireless network to which the E911
signal is transmitted and over which PCD has no control.
Finally, customers are advised that the Commando’s ALI capability is
to be used for E911 purposes only.

Safety
disorientation, any involuntary movement, or convulsions—
298
IMMEDIATELY discontinue use and consult your physician before
resuming play.
k Repetitive Motion Injuries
When you play games on your phone, you may experience occasional
discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts
of your body. Follow these instructions to avoid problems such
as tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other musculoskeletal
disorders:
• Take a minimum 15-minute break every hour of game playing.
• If your hands, wrists, or arms become tired or sore while playing,
stop and rest for several hours before playing again.

PCD believes that all of our customers should be able to enjoy
Safety
k Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) for Wireless
Telecommunications Devices
PCD’s Commitment
the benefits of digital wireless technologies. We are committed to
providing a selection of compatible devices for our customers who
wear hearing aids.
THIS PHONE HAS HAC RATINGS OF M4/T4
299
What is Hearing Aid Compatibility?
The Federal Communications Commission has implemented rules and
a rating system designed to enable people who wear hearing aids to
more effectively use these wireless telecommunications devices. The
standard for compatibility of digital wireless phones with hearing aids
is set forth in American National Standard Institute (ANSI) standard
C63.19. There are two sets of ANSI standards with ratings from one to
four (four being the best rating): an “M” rating for reduced interference
making it easier to hear conversations on the phone when using the
hearing aid microphone, and a “T” rating that enables the phone to be
used with hearing aids operating in the telecoil mode thus reducing
unwanted background noise.
How will I know which wireless phones are Hearing
Aid Compatible?
The Hearing Aid Compatibility rating is displayed on the wireless
phone box.
A phone is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for acoustic coupling
(microphone mode) if it has an “M3” or “M4” rating. A digital wireless
phone is considered Hearing Aid Compatible for inductive coupling
(telecoil mode) if it has a “T3” or “T4” rating.
How will I know if my hearing aid will work with a
particular digital wireless phone?
You’ll want to try a number of wireless phones so that you can decide
Safety
which works the best with your hearing aids.
You may also want to talk with your hearing aid professional about the
extent to which your hearing aids are immune to interference, if they
have wireless phone shielding, and whether your hearing aid has a
HAC rating.

k Teletypewriter (TTY) Devices
You can use an optional teletypewriter (TTY) device with your phone
to send and receive calls. You must plug the TTY device into the
phone’s headset connector and set the phone to operate in one of
three TTY modes.
A TTY is a communication device used by people who are hard of
hearing or have a speech impairment. TTY does not work from mobile
phone to mobile phone. Your phone has a 3.5mm jack. Use a TSB-121
compliant cable (provided by the TTY manufacturer) and a 3.5mm
to 2.5mm Audio Adapter to connect the TTY device to your phone.
Set the phone to Medium volume level for proper operation. If you
experience a high number of incorrect characters, adjust the volume
as needed to minimize the error rate. For optimal performance, your
phone should be at least 12 inches (30 centimeters) from the TTY
device. Placing the phone too close to the TTY device may cause
Safety
high error rates.
k Avoid potential hearing loss.
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most
common cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research
suggests that using portable audio devices, such as portable music
301
players and cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long
durations may lead to permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This
includes the use of headphones (including headsets, earbuds and
Bluetooth or other wireless devices). Exposure to very loud sound
has also been associated in some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in
the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted hearing. Individual
susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and other potential
hearing problems varies.
The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies
depending on the nature of the sound, the device, the device settings
and the headphones. You should follow some common sense
recommendations when using any portable audio device:
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume
at which you can hear adequately.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear
the people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to you can
hear what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you
choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment,
use noise-cancelling headphones to block out background
environmental noise.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less
time is required before your hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises,
such as concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss. Temporary
Safety
hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort.If you
experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or experience
any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio
device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.
