1 Important safety information
Do not make any adjustments and modifications that are not described
in this manual. Follow all safety instructions to ensure proper
operation of the device. The manufacturer assumes no liability for
damages resulting from non-compliance with the safety instructions.
1.1 Safety instructions
• Protect the device from rain or water to prevent a short circuit.
• Do not expose the device to excessive heat caused by placing it on a
heating device or in direct sunlight.
• Protect the cables from damage by being trapped, particularly at the
plugs and where cables exit the housing.
• Back up your data and recordings. The manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for any loss of data.
• Do not perform any maintenance operations that are not
described in this user manual. Do not disassemble the device into
its component parts to carry out repairs. The device may only be
repaired in authorised service centres.
Table of contents
1.1.1 Batteries and rechargeable batteries
• Only use AAA batteries with the device.
• Never try to recharge alkaline or non-rechargeable batteries.
• Remove batteries or rechargeable batteries from the device if it
will not be used for an extended period of time. The device can be
damaged by leaking batteries or rechargeable batteries.
• Do not remove batteries or rechargeable batteries from the device
while it is recording. If you do this, data may be damaged or lost.
Device malfunctions may also occur.
• Batteries and rechargeable batteries contain substances that may
pollute the environment. Used batteries and rechargeable batteries
should be disposed of at an official collection point.
1.1.2 Memory cards
• The device supports microSD memory cards up to 32 GB in capacity
(optimised for class 6 or higher).
• Make sure that the card has a sufficiently high data transfer rate. The
manufacturer makes no guarantee for trouble free operation.

1.1.3 Hearing protection
1.1.5 Legal restrictions on recording
Observe the following guidelines when using headphones:
• Set the volume to a moderate level and do not use headphones to
listen for excessively long periods of time.
• Be particularly careful to avoid adjusting the volume to a level that
your hearing cannot deal with.
• Do not turn the volume up so high that you cannot hear what is
going on around you.
• In potentially dangerous situations you must be very careful, or
temporarily discontinue use.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorised vehicle, cycling,
or skateboarding, etc. You could be a hazard to yourself and other
road users, and possibly be breaking the law.
• The use of the device's recording function is subject to the legal
restrictions that may apply in your country. You should also respect
the privacy and personal rights of the third parties if you record
talks or lectures.
• Please note that, in certain countries, you may be legally required
to inform the person you are conversing with on the telephone
that you are recording the conversation, or that the recording of
telephone conversations is illegal. Please check if the use of such
data is legal in your country prior to recording telephone calls.
1.1.4 Maximum sound power
• The manufacturer guarantees compliance with the maximum sound
power of its audio players as determined by relevant regulatory
bodies, but only with the original model of headphones supplied. If
you need to replace these headphones, we recommend contacting
your dealer to order the respective original Philips model.
