Listening for a Lifetime
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit youʼve just purchased is only the start of your
musical enjoyment. Now itʼs time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your
equipment offers. VocoPro and the Electronic Industries Associationʼs Consumer Electronics
Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets
the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to a higher volume of
sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard
against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without
distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
• Pay attention to the different levels in various recordings.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all,
we want you listening for a lifetime.
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since
hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and
the Electronic Industries Associationʼs Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid
prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.
Some common decibel ranges:
Level
30
40
50
60

80
Example
Quiet library, Soft whispers
Living room, Refrigerator, Bedroom away from traffic
Light traffic, Normal Conversation
Air Conditioner at 20 ft., Sewing machine
Vacuum cleaner, Hair dryer, Noisy Restaurant
Average city traffic, Garbage disposals, Alarm clock at 2 ft.
The following noises can be dangerous under constant exposure:
Level

Example
Subway, Motorcycle, Truck traffic, Lawn Mower
Garbage truck, Chainsaw, Pneumatics drill

2. With the source playing, adjust the Record Level knob until the YELLOW REC LED begins to blink.
3. Plug in a mic and speak into it.
4. Adjust the appropriate Mic Volume knob until both Mic and Music is balanced.
