• 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 you hearing.

Once you have established a comfortable listening level, DO NOT INCREASE THE

SOUND LEVEL FURTHER.
