1. Power source—Connect the unit to a power source of the type described in

these instructions or as marked on the unit.

2. Polarization—The unit is equipped with a polarized power plug where one

blade is wider than the other. This safety feature ensures that the plug fits into
your household AC outlet only one way. If the plug doesn’t fit one way, try
reversing it. If the plug still doesn’t fit, contact an electrician to replace the
obsolete outlet. Do not attempt to defeat the safety purpose of the plug.

3. Power cord protection—Route the AC power supply cord so that it will not be

walked on or pinched by items placed on or against it. Never take hold of the
plug or cord with wet hands. Always grasp the plug body firmly when
connecting and disconnecting it.

overload the household AC outlet, extension cord, or outlet from any other
device as this can result in fire or electric shock.

5. Nonuse periods—Turn the unit off when it is not in use. Unplug the unit from

the household AC outlet if it is not to be used for a long time. Unplug the unit
during lightning storms. Leaving the unit connected to a household AC outlet

Read these operating instructions carefully before using the unit. Follow the safety instructions on the unit and the safety precautions listed below. Keep these operating
instructions handy for future reference.


≥Do not peel off the covering on batteries and do not use if the covering has been

peeled off.

≥Align the poles + and - correctly when inserting the batteries.
≥Do not mix different types of batteries or old and new batteries.
≥Remove the batteries if you do not intend to use the unit for a long time.
≥Do not throw into fire, short-circuit, disassemble, or subject to excessive heat.
≥Do not attempt to recharge dry cell batteries.
≥When carrying batteries in a pocket or bag, ensure no metal objects such as

necklaces are placed together with them. Contact with metal may cause short-
circuiting which can cause a fire.



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 discontinue use.
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 the open-air type designed 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 BEFORE your hearing
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:
≥Leave it there.


Discontinue use if you experience discomfort with the earphones or any other parts
that directly contact your skin. Continued use may cause rashes or other allergic
