Important safety instructions

Hearing Safety


  • To avoid hearing damage, limit the time you use headphones at high volume and set the volume to a safe level. The louder the volume, the shorter the safe listening time is.

Be sure to observe the following guidelines when using your headset.

  • Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable periods of time.
  • Be careful not to adjust the volume continuously upwards 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.
  • Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can cause hearing loss.
  • Using headphones with both ears covered while driving is not recommended and may be illegal in some areas while driving.

  2. Press and hold the on/off button until the blue and white LED flashes alternately.
    The headphones remain in pairing mode for 5 minutes.
  3. Make sure that the mobile phone is turned on and its Bluetooth feature is activated.
  4. Pair the headphones with the mobile phone. For detailed information, refer to the user manual of your mobile phone.

The following example shows you how to pair the headphones with your mobile phone.

  1. Activate the Bluetooth feature of your mobile phone, select Philips SHB5850.
