Care and use
• Keep the SD Memory Card out of reach
of children to prevent swallowing.
• Discontinue use if you experience dis-
comfort with the earphones or any other
parts that directly contact your skin.
Continued use may cause rashes or
other allergic reactions.
• Leave some slack in the cord of the
earphones and the neck lanyard if
you wind them around the unit.
• disassemble, remodel, drop, or allow
the unit to get wet.
• use or store in locations directly
exposed to sunlight, corrosive gases,
a heat vent, or a heating appliance.
• use or store in humid or dusty loca-
• insert objects other than SD Memory
• use force to open the battery lid or
• use cracked or warped cards.
• detach the label on the card or
attach other labels or stickers.
Do not play your headphones or ear-
phones at a high volume. Hearing
experts advise against continuous
If you experience a ringing in your ears,
reduce volume or discontinue use.
Do not use while operating a motor-
ized vehicle. It may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in many areas.
You should use extreme caution or
temporarily discontinue use in poten-
tially hazardous situations.
Even if your headphones or ear-
phones are the open-air type designed
to let you hear outside sounds do not
turn up the volume so high that you
can not 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.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low
• Slowly increase the sound until you
can hear it comfortably and clearly,
and without distortion.
Once you have established a com-
fortable sound level:
• Leave it there.
• Remove the battery if the unit is not
to be used for a long time.
• recharge ordinary dry cell batteries.
• disassemble, short-circuit, or put in a
fire or water.
• peel off the cover or use if the cover
has been peeled off.
Mishandling of batteries can cause
electrolyte leakage which can damage
items the fluid contacts and may
cause a fire.
If electrolyte leaks from the battery,
consult your dealer.
Wash thoroughly with water if elec-
trolyte comes in contact with any part
of your body.
