Do not peel off the covering on batteries and do not use the batteries if the covering has been peeled off.
Align the poles ( and ) correctly when inserting the batteries.
Do not mix different types of batteries or old and new batteries.
Remove the batteries if you do not intend to use the unit for a long time.
Do not heat or expose to flame.
Do not leave the batteries in an automobile exposed to direct sunlight for a long period of time with
doors and windows closed.
Do not attempt to recharge dry cell batteries.
Battery mishandling can cause electrolyte leakage which can damage items the fluid contacts and may
cause a fire. If electrolyte leaks from the batteries, consult your dealer. Wash thoroughly with water if
electrolyte comes in contact with any part of your body.
Keep the AAA LR03 batteries out of reach of children to prevent swallowing. Accidental swallowing of
batteries can result in stomach and intestinal damage.
When carrying batteries in a pocket or bag, ensure no metal objects such as necklaces are placed
together with them. Contact with metal may cause short-circuiting which can cause a fire. For safety,
carry the batteries in the battery carrying case.
g Allergies
• Discontinue use if you experience discomfort with the earphones or any other parts that directly contact
your skin.
• Continued use may cause rashes or other allergic reactions.
g Listening caution
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.
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.
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.
Other
You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
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.
RQT9359
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Leave it there.
