Important notes for users in the U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13 Amp plug. To change a
fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
1 Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2 Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 3 Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI
approved type.
3 Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should be
cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of 3 Amp. If
a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution board should
not be greater than 3 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible shock
hazard should it be inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with the following code:
blue = neutral (N), brown = live (L).
o As these colours may not correspond with the colour markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or coloured
– Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the plug,
marked E (or e) or coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord grip is
clamped over the sheath of the lead - not simply over the two wires.

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
Be sure to observe the following guidelines when using your
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 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.
Where the MAINS plug or an appliance coupler is used as the
