SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER GROUNDING INSTALLATION

CAUTION: Connecting to improperly grounded equipment can result in an electric shock to your device.

This product is equipped with a USB cable for connecting the product to a desktop or notebook computer. Be sure your computer is properly grounded (earthed) before connecting the product to the computer. The power supply cord of a desktop or notebook computer has an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug.The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet which is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR POWER SUPPLY UNIT

Use the correct external power source

A product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the electrical ratings label. If you are not sure of the type of power source required, consult your authorized service provider or local power company. For a product that operates from battery power or other sources, refer to the operating instructions that are included with the product.

Handle battery packs carefully

This product contains a Li-ionPolymer battery.There is a risk of fire and burns if the battery pack is handled improperly. Do not attempt to open or service the battery pack. Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts or circuits, dispose of in fire or water, or expose a battery pack to temperatures higher than 60˚C (140˚F).

WARNING: Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.To reduce risk of fire or burns, do not disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts, expose to temperature above 60˚C (140˚F), or dispose of in fire or water. Replace only with specified batteries. Recycle or dispose of used batteries according to the local regulations or reference guide supplied with your product.

PREVENTION OF HEARING LOSS

Caution: Avoid potential hearing loss

Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the most common cause of preventable hearing loss. Some scientific research suggests that using portable audio devices, such as portable music players and cellular telephones, at high volume settings for long durations may lead to permanent noise-inducedhearing loss.This includes the use of headphones (including headsets, earbuds and Bluetooth® or other wireless devices). Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), hypersensitivity to sound and distorted hearing. Individual susceptibility tonoise-inducedhearing loss and other potential hearing problems varies.

The amount of sound produced by a portable audio device varies depending on the nature of the sound, the device, the device settings and the headphones.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-cancellingheadphones to block out background environmental noise.

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

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 mu ed speech or experience any temporary hearing di culty after listening to your portable audio device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.
