Your hearing is very important to you and to us so please take care when operating
this equipment. The following guidelines are provided for your information.
ESTABLISH A SAFE SOUND LEVEL
— Over time your hearing will adapt to continuous loud sounds and will give the
impression that the volume has in fact been reduced. What seems normal to
you may in fact be harmful. To guard against this BEFORE YOUR HEARING
ADAPTS set the volume at a low level.
— Slowly increase the level until you can hear comfortably and clearly and without
distortion.
— Damage to your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible.
— Any ringing or discomfort in the ears indicates that the volume is too loud.
— Remember listening for prolonged period of time at high volume levels will
harm your hearing.
Once you have established a comfortable listening level, DO NOT INCREASE
THE SOUND LEVEL FURTHER.
The following list of typical sound levels may assist you in recognizing just how
loud you have set the volume level.
