About the in-ear headphones

  • When you use in-ear headphones with a high degree of adhesion, note the following. Otherwise, you may damage your ears or eardrums.
    • Do not insert the earbuds forcefully into your ears.
    • Do not remove the earbuds from your ears suddenly. When you take off the headphones, move the earbuds up and down gently.
  • When you unplug the headphones from the player, hold the headphones by the plug. Pulling the cable itself may damage the headphones.

About the use of headphones with a USB Type-C connector

When you use headphones with a USB Type-C connector, you may not be able to adjust the volume depending on the headphones. This may result in unexpectedly loud volumes from the headphones. To avoid the risk, do not use headphones with a USB Type-C connector.

Consideration for others
