Sound can be deceiving. Over time your
hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal”
can actually be loud and harmful to your
hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing
adapts.
To establish a safe level:
≥Start your volume control at a low setting.
≥Slowly increase the sound until you can
hear it comfortably and clearly, and without
distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable
sound level:
≥Set the dial and leave it there.
To record again, cover the hole of the
tab with adhesive tape.
Tab for side A
Tab for side B
≥Align the poles (d and e) properly
when inserting the batteries.
≥Do not mix old and new batteries or
different types of batteries.
≥Do not recharge ordinary dry cell batteries.
≥Remove the batteries if the unit is not
to be used for a long time.
≥Do not use the batteries if the covering has been peeled off.
U
Do not play your headphones or earphones
at a high volume. Hearing experts advise
against continuous extended play.
If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use.
Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
Even if your headphones or earphones are
the open-air type designed to let you hear
outside sounds, don’t turn up the volume so
high that you can’t hear what’s around you.
