HELPLINE PHONE NUMBER 0870 873 0080 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. DECIBEL Level dB Example 30dB 40 50 60 70 Quiet library, soft whisper. Living room, fridge freezer bedroom away from traffic. Normal conversation, quiet office, light traffic. Electric sewing machine. Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant. THE FOLLOWING NOISE CAN BE HARMFUL UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE 80dB 90 100 120 140 180 Average city traffic, alarm clock buzzer at 1 Metre, food mixer. Motorcycle, heavy goods vehicle, petrol lawn mower. Pneumatic drill, chain saw, garbage truck, discotec/night-club. Rock band concert, thunderclap, fast train passing by. THRESHOLD OF PAIN Gunshot, jet plane taking off. Rocket Launching pad.
