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.

Hearing Safety
English
1 Important safety
information
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.
Background noise levels and active noise
cancelation
Downloaded from ManualMPlayer.com Manuals
EN
3
A noisy environment can severely impair
our wellbeing and add to stress. Active noise
cancelation technology enables the listener to
strongly reduce low frequency sounds, and thus
can contribute to the reduction of stress.
The full benefits of the active noise cancelation
feature of MUSE require that the special
supplied earphones are used and that the
earplugs are worn correctly:
The earplugs of the supplied earphones are
inserted into the ear. A close fit helps block out
disturbing external sounds and improve the
noise cancelation effect. The synthetic earplug
covers of the supplied earphones are designed
to fit most ears. For maximum comfort you can
exchange the earplug covers with covers of a
different shape / size that best suits your ears.
(There are 3 different types included with the
product.)
Note
•• It is important that listeners remain alert and
aware of their surroundings.

A
Active noise cancelation
Active noise control (ANC) (also known as
noise cancelation, active noise reduction, or
antinoise) is a method for reducing unwanted
sound. The active noise cancellation system
cancels unwanted sound by generating an
antisound (antinoise). The original, unwanted
sound and the antinoise acoustically combine,
resulting in the cancelation of both sounds.
Album art
Album art is a feature that displays the
artwork (cover picture) of a music album. This
display enables the user to quickly identify
a music album. The artwork files for music
albums can be downloaded from the Internet.
C
Compression
In audio terms, this is a process of temporarily
or permanently reducing audio data for more
efficient storage or transmission. A temporary
reduction in file size is called ‘non-lossy’
compression, and no information is lost. A
permanent reduction in file size (such as with
MP3 files) is called ‘lossy’ compression, and
involves discarding unnecessary information
which is irretrievably lost.
FM (Frequency Modulation)
In radio broadcasting: a method of modulation
in which the frequency of the carrier voltage
is varied with the frequency of the modulation
voltage.
FullSound
FullSound™ is an innovative technology
designed by Philips. FullSound™ faithfully
restores sonic details to compressed music,
enhancing it to provide a full sound experience
without any distortion.
J
JPEG
A very common digital still picture format.
A still-picture data compression system
proposed by the Joint Photographic Expert
Group, which features small decrease in image
quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
Files are recognized by their file extension
‘.jpg’ or ‘.jpeg.’
K
Kbps
Kilobits per second. A digital-data-rate
measurement system which is often used
with highly compressed formats such as AAC,
DAB, MP3 etc. The higher the amount, the
better the quality generally is.
L
D
Decibel (dB)
A unit of measure used to express relative
difference in power or intensity of sound.
Digital Audio
Digital Audio is a sound signal that has been
converted into numerical values. Digital sound
can be transmitted through multiple channels.
Analog sound can only be transmitted through
two channels.
