Health and Safety Advice
As with all headphones you need to think about a few sensible tips to ensure that you do not damage your hearing. Firstly, prior to putting on the headphones make sure that you turn the volume down to a low level. Then put on the headphones and slowly raise the volume until you reach the sound output that you are looking for. Remember not to overdrive the headphones as sooner or later it will lead to physical damage to your ears and/or your X11’s.
Long term exposure to loud music or other sounds in headphones may lead to hearing loss and damage. Avoid excessive volume levels, especially for extended periods.
