USING THE EARPHONE

Listening Safely

Do not listen at extremely high-volumelevels. Extendedhigh-volumelistening can lead to permanent hearing loss. To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you use earphones.

Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening.

After you begin listening, adjust the volume to a comfortable level.

Once you set the volume, do not increase it. Over time, your ears adapt to the volume level, so a volume level that does not cause discomfort might still damage your hearing.

Traffic Safety

Do not wear the earphone while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can cause a traffic hazard and is illegal in some areas.

Even though some earphones are designed to let you hear some outside sounds when you listen at normal volume levels, they still present a traffic hazard.

FCC INFORMATION

The radio might cause interference on the TV or another radio's receiver, even when it is operating properly. To determine whether the radio is causing the interference, turn it off. If the interference goes away, the radio is causing the interference. Try to eliminate the interference by:

Moving the radio away from the receiver

Contacting your local Radio Shack store for help

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using the radio.
