To use the earbud headphones:
m Plug the earphones into the Headphones port. If you like, place the earphone covers
over the earphones. Then place the earbuds in your ears as shown.
Warning: Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or headphones are used at
high volume. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound that may sound
normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you experience ringing in your ears or
muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume,
the less time is required before your hearing could be affected. Hearing experts
suggest that to protect your hearing:
Â Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
Â Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
Â Turn the volume down if you can't hear people speaking near you.
For information about setting a maximum volume limit on iPod, see “Setting the
Maximum Volume Limit” on page 27.
