information

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)

Hearing Safety

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.
