Individual susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and potential hearing problem varies. Additionally, the amount
of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending on the nature of the sound, the device settings, and
the headphones that are used. As a result, there is no single volume setting that is appropriate for everyone or for
every combination of sound, settings and equipment.

You should follow some commonsense recommendations when using any portable audio device:

Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest volume at which you can hear adequately.

When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot hear the people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to

you can hear what you are listening to.

Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy

environment, use noise-cancelling headphones to block out background environmental noise. By blocking background
environment noise, noise cancelling headphones should allow you to hear the music at lower volumes than when using
earbuds.

Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less time is required before you hearing could be affected.

Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises, such as rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing

loss. Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound normal.

Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech or

experience any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your portable audio device, discontinue use and consult your
doctor.
