l Unplug this apparatus during lightning
storms or when unused for long periods
of time.
m Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel. Servicing is required when
the apparatus has been damaged in any
way, such as power-supply cord or plug
is damaged, liquid has been spilled or
objects have fallen into the apparatus,
the apparatus has been exposed to rain
or moisture, does not operate normally,
or has been dropped.
n Battery usage CAUTION – To prevent
battery leakage which may result in
bodily injury, property damage, or
damage to the unit:
• Install all batteries correctly, + and as marked on the unit.
• Do not mix batteries (old and new
or carbon and alkaline, etc.).
• Remove batteries when the unit is
not used for a long time.
• Batteries (battery pack or batteries
installed) shall not be exposed to
excessive heat such as sunshine, fire
or the like.
o Apparatus shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
p Do not place any sources of danger on
the apparatus (e.g. liquid filled objects,
lighted candles).
q Where the plug of the Direct Plugin Adapter is used as the disconnect
device, the disconnect device shall
remain readily operable.
• Never remove the casing of this apparatus.
• Never lubricate any part of this apparatus.
• Never place this apparatus on other electrical
equipment.
• Keep this apparatus away from direct sunlight,
naked flames or heat.
• Never look into the laser beam inside this
apparatus.
• Ensure that you always have easy access to the
power cord, plug or adaptor to disconnect this
apparatus from the power.
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.
