Listen at a moderate volume.
• Using headphones at a high volume can impair your hearing. This
product can produce sounds in decibel ranges that may cause hearing
loss for a normal person, even for exposure less than a minute. The
higher decibel ranges are offered for those that may have already
experienced some hearing loss.
• Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing ‘comfort level’
adapts to higher volumes of sound. So after prolonged listening, what
sounds ‘normal’ can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. To
guard against this, set your volume to a safe level before your hearing
adapts and leave it there.
PD7030_79_UM_V2.0.indd 5 12/4/2012 11:19:43 AM
To establish a safe volume level:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and
clearly, without distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
• Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally ‘safe’ levels, can also
cause hearing loss.
