The Safety of Your Ears is in Your Hands
the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level - a level that lets the
sound come through clearly without annoying blaring or distortion and, most
importantly. without affecting your sensitive hearing. 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.
ESTABLISH A SAFE LEVEL:
· set your volume control at a low setting.
• SbMy ilcrease the soond ootl you can
rt comfortably and cieal1y, wiIIlOUl distortion.
• Once. you have established a comfortable sound level, set the dial and leave
BE SURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES:
• Do not tum up the volume so high that you can't hear what's around you.
• Use caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle; the use of headphones
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
