This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio com-
munications. However, there is no guarantee that interfer-
ence will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or televi-
sion reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct
the interference by one of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and re-
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician
Any unauthorized changes or modifications to this equip-
ment would void the user's authority to operate this device.
Power Supply Preparations
The illustration of the grip band is omitted.
Using dry-cell batteries
Two "AA" (LR6) alkaline batteries.
Do not forcibly open the battery lid too wide.
This indicator appears when the batteries are almost out of power.
Power will be cut off a short while later.
Turning off the Anti-Shock Protection EX will save the battery power
more or less. For details, see "Anti-shock Protection EX" on page 7.
(Available for an Audio CD only)
Put the grip band on your hand
Adjust the grip band to your hand size.
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 discon-
Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a
traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use
in potentially hazardous situations.
Even if your headphones or earphones are an open-air type de-
signed 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 BE-
FORE your hearing adapts.
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.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
