part responsible for compliance could void the users authority to operate the equipment.
15.105(b) This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to
try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
> Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
> Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

FCC RF radiation exposure statement:
This Transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other
antenna or transmitter.
Warning: Prolonged use of a headset at high volumes may affect your hearing
capacity. Using for extensive time periods may result in noise induced hearing loss
(NIHL). Be careful about using in noisy environments as the tendency is to turn
the headset up to compensate. Hearing loss may occur if the headset is used at
maximum volumes for more than 5 minutes per day. Hearing loss may occur if the
headset is used at medium volumes if used for more than 1 hour per day. Exposure
to sound at such a close range for more than eight hours a day may result in hearing
loss, even at low levels.
