1. Radio frequency exposure
This Bluetooth®
Stereo Headset HBS-800 is a radio transmitter and receiver.
When in operation it communicates with a Bluetooth®
equipped mobile device
by receiving and transmitting radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields
(microwaves) in the frequency range 2.4 to 2.4835 GHz. Your Bluetooth®
Headset is designed to operate in compliance with the RF exposure guidelines
and limits set by national authorities and international health agencies when used
with any compatible LG Electronics mobile phone.
FCC NOTICE TO USERS:
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference and
(2) 
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
To comply with the FCC RF exposure compliance requirements, no change to
the antenna or the device is permitted. Any change to the antenna or the device
could result in the device exceeding the RF exposure requirements and void
user’s authority to operate the device.

2. Potentially explosive atmosphere
Turn off your electronic device when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere. Although this is uncommon, your electronic device could generate
sparks. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in bodily
injury or even death. Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but
not always, clearly marked.
3. Emergency calls
IMPORTANT!
This Bluetooth®
headset and the electronic device connected to the headset
operate using radio signals, mobile and landline networks as well as
user - programmed functions, which cannot guarantee connection under all
conditions. Therefore you should never rely solely upon any electronic device
for essential communications (e.g. medical emergencies). Remember, in order
to make or receive calls, the headset and the electronic device connected to the
headset must be switched on and in a service area with adequate mobile signal
strength. Emergency calls may not be possible on all mobile phone networks or
when certain network services and/or phone features are in use. Check with your
local service provider.
4. Battery information
A rechargeable battery has a long service life if treated properly. A new battery
or one that has not been used for a long period of time could have reduced
capacity the first few times it is used. Do not expose the battery to extreme
temperatures, never above +60°C (+140°F) or below -20°C (-4°F). For maximum
battery capacity, use the battery at room temperature. If the battery is used in
low temperatures, the battery capacity will be reduced. The battery can only be
charged in temperatures between +10°C (+50°F) and +45°C (+113°F). For your
safety, do not remove the battery incorporated with the product. If you need to
replace the battery, take it to the nearest authorised LG Electronics service point
or dealer for assistance.
5. Recycling the battery in your Bluetooth®
headset
The battery in your Bluetooth®
Headset must be disposed of properly and should
never be placed in municipal waste. The LG Electronics service partner who
removes the battery will dispose of it according to local regulations.

normal and customary manner, in accordance with instructions for use and
maintenance of the product. Nor does this warranty cover any failure of the

Subject to the conditions of this Limited Warranty, LG Electronics warrants this
product to be free from defects in design, material and workmanship at the time
of its original purchase by a consumer, and for a subsequent period of one (1)
year. Should your product need warranty service, please return it to the dealer
from whom it was purchased or contact your local LG Electronics contact center
to get further information.
Avoiding hearing damage
Permanent hearing loss may occur if you use your headset at a high volume.
Set the volume to a safe level. Over time you can become accustomed to a
higher volume 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:
• Limit the amount of time you use the headset at high volume.
• Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
• Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
Using headsets safely
Use of headsets to listen to music while operating a vehicle is not recommended
and is illegal in some areas. Be careful and attentive while driving. Stop using
this device if you find it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of
vehicle or performing any other activity that requires your full attention.
