especially at pedestrian crossings. You should exercise extreme caution or
discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using headphones at high volume.
Hearing experts advise against continuous, loud and extended play. If you
experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use.
Caring for others
Keep the volume at a moderate level. This will allow you to hear outside sounds
and to be considerate to people around you.
