Headphones

Road Safety

Do not use headphones while driving, cycling, or operating any motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas. It can also be potentially dangerous to play your player at a high volume while walking, especially at pedestrian crossings. You should exercise extreme caution or discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

Preventing hearing damage

Avoid using the headphones at a high volume. Hearing experts advise against continuous, loud and extended play. If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce the volume or discontinue use.

Consideration for others

Keep the volume at a moderate level. This will allow you to hear outside sounds and to be considerate to the people around you.

Warning

If there is lightning when you are using your player, take off the headphones immediately.

Battery

When the battery is drained, remove the battery from the player.

When the player is not to be used for a long time, remove the battery.

In case of failure of this player, consult your Aiwa dealer without opening the casing. If failure occurs while the “pavit” is inserted in the player, it is recommended not to remove the “pavit” from the player to ensure an early solution to the problem.

Cleaning

Clean your player’s casing with a soft cloth slightly moistened with water or a mild detergent solution.

Note

Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or benzene as it may mar the finish of the casing.

Cleaning the headphone plug
