Introduction:Your hearing health can be hinged on these cautions if you received head phones for a gift. Read these and follow them for your present and continued safe use of your head phones.
Even before you put the head phones on your head, read the instructions. The cellophane around the head phones could have safety precautions written on there so examine all the wrapping, the box and the actual head phones for any written information to know and learn before doing anything with the head phones. If you have not already done so, go online and inquire on the chat lines about your head phone set. People who have that exact head phone set can shed some great light on the use and safety of your product. Keep the paperwork and monitor the date when the head phones were purchased for a folder on the head phones.
Underwriter's laboratories or called UL on many packages does extensive testing for all products for consumers. Customers can rely on UL and they have a great reputation for putting manufactured products through the wringer so you can buy any product with the UL seal with sincere confidence. UL has been examining and creating all sorts of circumstances for various products for over 50 years. If there is anything you do not understand in the instructions of the use of your head phones, call any phone number you see on the packaging. This does not mean that you can haphazardly ignore intelligent advice given here as well as on the label of your head phones.
Before you put the head phones to your ears look over the head phones for exterior problems so if they need to be returned that can be quickly done and you can get a replacement. If all is found to be in order on the outside, it is time to do your own tests. While you hold the head phones in your hands move the balance of all the buttons so you become familiar with them. Determine where the comfort levels for your safety are located. Do not over extend the volume because the head phones prevent the noise from escaping, so all the volume remains for you alone. That is the reason for the head phones in the first place.
Learn where all the controls are and how they work too. Know that a certain volume control is located in a specific area of the head phones as you hold them in your hands. Do not place the head phones on your head as you test your equipment. Educate yourself as to how to balance the treble, base and any other buttons. It is best to fix controls before putting the head phone on your head. Place the volume at the lowest level and then bring the head phones to your ears keeping them at least a hands distance from your ears. This is done in the event you need to change the controls before you put the head phones on your ears.
Each time you pick up the head phones check the volume before putting the set on your head. Store the head phones in the lowest possible settings so if someone else picks up the head phones they will not have a blast of a loud volume and be adversely affected in their hearing abilities. Instruct all members of the household that might be using the head phones the proper use, handling and storing of the head phones. Explain the possibility of hearing loss being caused by a sudden blaring of loud sounds coming from the head phone set that is not correctly programmed.
