Special safety instructions

Caution: Follow this manual and adhere to all safety instructions, otherwise the protective effect of the hearing protectors may be reduced.
Sizing: Model of hearing protectors here indicated comply with the adjustability requirements of EN 352-1:2002/EN 352- 8:2008/EN 352-6:2002 in three size ranges: Medium size range, Small size range, Large size range.
Warning: These hearing protectors are of Medium size range, Small size range, Large size range.
Medium size range hearing protectors will fit the majority of wearers. Small size range and Large size range hearing protectors are designed to fit wearers for who medium size range hearing protectors are not suitable.
This product may be damaged by certain chemical substances.
The hearing protectors, and especially the pads, may deteriorate with use and so should regularly be checked for tear and leaks.
If the hearing protectors are damaged or worn, they will not provide the expected protection, and they must therefore not be used any longer. Replace or repair the
hearing protectors.
Check the hearing protectors thoroughly for wear and tear before each use.
Placing hygienic covers onto the pads may affect the acoustic function of the hearing protection.
Check that the hearing protectors are correctly positioned regularly during use in order to ensure they are providing the optimum protection.
The use of hearing protectors with or without the entertainment function may make it harder to hear warning signals in the workplace.
Never use in traffic.
The hearing protectors must not be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods, as this may deform them.
The output of the electric audio circuit of the earmuffs may exceed the daily sound level limit.
The earmuffs provide an audio signal sound pressure level limitation and the hearing protectors limit the intertaintment audio signal to 82 dB(A) effetive to the ear.
EN352-6 specifies that the input voltage should result in 82 dBA (mean plus one standard deviation, (SD)). The input level required was calculated to be 92.3 (rounded to 92) mV.
For the EN352-8 testing, the same eight human subjects were tested. The 18102 earmuffs were set to maximum transmission volume. The following table presents the measurement results.
The mean-+standard deviation level must not exceed 82 dBA. Therefor, the 18102 earmuffs passes this test.

Input type Mean SD Mean+SD
Bluetooth 73. 0.9 74.3 dBA

Use

  1. Extend the headband before use, Place the ear cups over each ear, make sure the microphone in the forward position to obtain the best listening condition.
  2. Adjust the headband by sliding the headband up or down to the fit position.
  3. The ear cushions should seals the ear firmly against the head. For best results, remove all hair under the cushion, Noise reduction will be adversely effected by anything that impairs the seals of the earmuff cushions against the head, such as thick spectacle frames, hats, etc.
