Safety
ˎ Observe all warnings, precautions and instructions.
ˎ CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Keep out of the reach of small children.
Use and handling
ˎ Stop using the system immediately if you begin to feel tired or if you experience discomfort or
pain in your head while operating the wireless stereo headset. If the condition persists, consult
a doctor.
ˎ Avoid prolonged use of the wireless stereo headset. Take a break at about 30-minute intervals.
ˎ Permanent hearing loss may occur if the headset is used at high volume. Set the volume to a
safe level. Over time, increasingly loud audio may start to sound normal but can actually be
damaging your hearing. If you experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening
and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume, the sooner your hearing could be
affected. To protect your hearing:
ˋ Limit the amount of time you use the headset at high volume.
ˋ Avoid raising the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
ˋ Lower the volume if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
ˎ If you feel that the headset is irritating your skin, stop using it immediately.
ˎ Do not expose the headset to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight.
ˎ Do not put heavy objects on the headset.
ˎ Do not allow liquid or small particles to get into the headset.
ˎ Do not throw or drop the headset or subject it to strong physical shock.
ˎ Do not place any rubber or vinyl materials on the headset exterior for an extended period of
time.
ˎ Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the headset. Do not use solvents or other chemicals. Do not wipe
with a chemically treated cleaning cloth.
ˎ Do not disassemble or insert anything into the headset because this may cause damage to the
internal components or cause injury to you.
ˎ Observe all signs and instructions that require an electrical device or radio product to be
switched off in designated areas, such as gas/refueling stations, hospitals, blasting areas,
potentially explosive atmospheres or aircraft.
ˎ The battery used in this device may present a risk of fire or chemical burn if mistreated. Do not
disassemble, heat above 60 °C / 140 °F, or incinerate.
