Notes:

Connecting earphones or headphones disconnects the radio’s built-inspeaker.

While connected to the radio, the earphones’ or headphones’ cord acts as the FM antenna.

Listening Safely

To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you use earphones or headphones.

Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening. After you begin listening, adjust the volume to a comfortable level.

12-791.fmPage 9 Wednesday, July 7, 1999 11:29 AM

Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended high-volumelistening can lead to permanent hearing loss.

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 earphones or headphones while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a traffic hazard and is illegal in some areas.

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