1 Important safety
information
General maintenance
The translation of this document is for
reference only.
In the event of any inconsistency between the
English version and the translated version, the
English version shall prevail.
Caution
•• To avoid damage or malfunction:
•• Use only power supplies listed in the user manual.
•• Do not expose the product to excessive heat caused
by heating equipment or direct sunlight.
•• Do not drop the product or allow objects to fall on
your player.
•• Do not allow the product to be submerged in
water. Do not expose headphone socket or battery
compartment to water, as water entering the set may
cause major damage.
•• Active mobile phones in the vicinity may cause
interference.
•• Back up your files. Ensure that you retain the original
files you have downloaded to your device. Philips is not
responsible for any loss of data if the product becomes
damaged or not readable / legible.
•• Manage (transfer, delete, etc.) your music files only with
the supplied music software to avoid problems.
•• Do not use any cleaning agents containing alcohol,
ammonia, benzene, or abrasives as these may harm the
product.
•• Batteries (battery pack or batteries installed) shall not
be exposed to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or
the like.
•• Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type.
About operating and storage temperatures
• Operate in a place where temperature is
always between 0 and 40ºC (32 to 104ºF)
•
•
Store in a place where temperature is
always between -20 and 45ºC (-4 to
113ºF).

Visit www.philips.com/support to order
replacement parts/accessories.
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, etc.; it
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many
areas.
