To avoid hearing damage, make sure that the volume on your music player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After
placing headphones in your ears, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level.
Noise levels are measured in decibels (dB), exposure to any noise at or above 85 dB can cause gradual hearing loss.
Monitor your use; hearing loss is a function of loudness versus time. The louder it is, the less time you can be exposed to it.
The softer it is, the more time you can listen to it. Refer to the chart* below.
This decibel (dB) table compares some common sounds and shows how they rank in potential harm to hearing.
Noise Level (dB)
Comfortable hearing levels are under 60 dB
Vacuum Cleaner, Hair Dryer
Intrusive; interferes with telephone conversations
85 dB is the level at which hearing damage (8 hrs.) begins
Garbage Truck, Cement Mixer
No more than 15 minutes of unprotected exposure recommended for sounds between 90-100 dB
Power Saw, Drill/Jackhammer
Regular exposure to sound over 100 dB of more than 1 minute risks permanent hearing loss
Do not use headphones when it's unsafe to do so - while operating a vehicle, crossing streets, or during any activity or in an
environment where your full attention to your surroundings is required.
It's dangerous to drive while wearing headphones, and in many places, illegal because it decreases your chances of hearing
life-saving sounds outside of your vehicle, such as another car's horn and emergency vehicle sirens.
Please avoid wearing your headphones while driving. Use one of Monster's FM transmitters to listen to your mobile media devices
