PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT CAREFULLY, BECAUSE IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE SAFE USE OF BLUEANT DEVICES
All BlueAnt devices are designed to reach volumes of up to 100 decibels (some BlueAnt devices are designed to reach volumes over 100 decibels). Prolonged use of a BlueAnt device at high volumes may affect your hearing capacity. Use for extensive periods may result in noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). Turn off the power to your device when not in use.
Do not listen at high volumes. Remember that your ears will adapt to the volume level and if you change to higher levels your ear may feel no discomfort but damage to your hearing may be occurring.
Should you experience any discomfort after using the product, stop using it immediately. If the problem persists seek medical assistance immediately.
