information
Hearing Safety
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
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many
areas.

SafeSound
With the by-packed earphones, SafeSound
allows you to listen to music in a safe way.
When you listen to music through the
earphones, the sound pressure on your
ears is estimated¹ based on the electrical
characteristics of the player and earphones.
Then, the estimate is compared against the
reference levels² of sound pressure. As a result,
icons of different colors can be displayed to
indicate status of sound pressure and the levels
of risks to hearing damage.
Tip
• ¹The methodology is based on European norm
(50332-1/2).
• ²The reference levels come from the minimum
requirement for health and safety that the
European directive 2003/10/EC provides for
the noises exposed to individuals.
