IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Discontinue use if you experience discomfort with the earphones or any other parts that directly
contact your skin. Continued use may cause rashes or other allergic reactions.
Read these operating instructions carefully before using the unit. Follow the
safety instructions on the unit and the applicable safety instructions listed below.
Keep these operating instructions handy for future reference.
∫Batteries
≥Do not peel off the covering on the batteries and do not use if the covering has been peeled
off.
≥Align the poles i and j correctly when inserting the batteries.
≥Do not mix different types of batteries or old and new batteries.
≥Remove the batteries if you do not intend to use the unit for a long time.
≥Do not throw into a fire, short-circuit, disassemble, or subject to excessive heat.
≥Do not attempt to recharge dry cell batteries.
≥When carrying batteries in a pocket or bag, ensure no metal objects such as necklaces are placed
together with them. Contact with metal may cause short-circuiting which can cause a fire.
≥Keep out of the reach of small children. Accidental swallowing of batteries can result in
stomach and intestinal damage.

∫Listening
10)
EST. 1924
11)
12)
Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high volume. Hearing experts advise against
continuous extended play.
If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use.
Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
13)
Even if your headphones or earphones are the open-air type designed to let you hear outside
sounds, don’t turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you.
14)
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of
sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
≥Start your volume control at a low setting.
≥Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
≥Leave it there.
Play time:
Using on a flat stable surface at 25 eC
