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:
• 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.
About operating and storage temperatures
• Operate in a place where temperature is
always between 0 and 35ºC (32 to 95ºF)
• Store in a place where temperature is
always between -20 and 45ºC (-4 to
113ºF).
• Battery life may be shortened in low
temperature conditions.

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

B
Bit rate
Bit rate is the number of bits that are
conveyed or processed per unit of time. The
bit rate is usually measured in some multiple
of bits per second (kilobits per second: kbps).
The term bit rate is a synonym for data
transfer rate (or simply data rate).
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.
D
Frequency Response
Is the range of frequencies that a speaker
reproduces, lowest frequency to the highest.
While the optimal normal is 20-20,000 Hz
(Hertz), the range of human hearing for
individuals is often much more restricted.
A good full-range speaker system however,
reproduces as much of this range as possible
to cover all variations. Individual drivers are
limited to reproduce only that part of the
spectrum for which they were made, so their
response is limited, but still a necessary point
to consider when designing a complete sound
system.
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.
L
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
Probably the most common way to show
visual information on non-computer electronic
equipment.
Decibel (dB)
A unit of measure used to express relative
difference in power or intensity of sound.
Lossless compression
A system for reducing the number of data bits
(density) in a musical signal without corrupting
the original.
F
M
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.
MP3
A file format with a sound data compression
system. MP3 is the abbreviation of Motion
Picture Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio
Layer 3. With the MP3 format, one CD-R or
CD-RW can contain about 10 times more
data than a regular CD.

MSC [Mass Storage Class]
The USB mass storage device class (or
USB MSC or UMS) is a set of computing
communications protocols that provide an
interface to storage devices. Devices that
support this standard are referred to as MSC
(Mass Storage Class) devices.
MTP [Media Transfer Protocol]
Media Transfer Protocol supports the transfer
of music and video files to portable audio and
video players.
R
Rip (ripping)
Using a software program that “grabs” digital
audio from a compact disc and transfers it to a
computer hard drive. The integrity of the data
is preserved, because the signal does not pass
through the computer sound card, and need
not be converted to an analog format. The
digital-to-digital transfer creates a WAV file
that can then be converted into an MP3 file.
S
SuperScroll
SuperScroll™ is a navigation feature of the
double-action search keys of the product.
SuperScroll™ allows easy speed control when
scrolling through large libraries to swiftly find
items within large libraries. Longer press of the
button results in faster scroll speed.
