Hearing safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
Using headphones at a high volume can impair your
hearing. This product can produce sounds in decibel ranges
that may cause hearing loss for a normal person, even for
exposure less than a minute. The higher decibel ranges are
offered for those that may have already experienced some
hearing loss.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing ‘comfort
level’ adapts to higher volumes of sound. So after
prolonged listening, what sounds ‘normal’ can actually be
loud and harmful to your hearing. To guard against this, set
your volume to a safe level before your hearing adapts and
leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
Set your volume control at a low setting.
Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably
and clearly, without distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally ‘safe’
levels, can also cause hearing loss.
Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and take
appropriate breaks.
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 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. Do not use headphones
while operating a motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding,

11 About DAB
What is Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB)?
DAB digital radio is a new way of broadcasting radio via a
network of terrestrial transmitters. It provides listeners with
more choice and information delivered in crystal clear, cracklefree sound quality.
– The technology allows the receiver to lock on to the strongest

– With DAB digital stations there are no frequencies to
remember, and sets are tuned by station name, so there is no
returning on the move.

dynamic labels such as title artist information or news headlines;
complementary graphics and images etc.)
What is a multiplex?
Digital radio operation is made up of a single block of
frequencies called a multiplex. Each multiplex works within a
frequency spectrum, such as Band III for DAB broadcasts.
DAB BROADCASTERS AND DLS
Each DAB broadcaster (or multiplex operator) also provides
text and audio data services. Some programs are supported
by Dynamic Label Segments (DLS). This is data which you can
read as scrolling text on your DAB radio display. Some stations
transmit the latest news, travel, and weather, what’s on now and
next, website addresses and phone numbers.
