FCC and ISED Canada Authorized Antenna Information:
Under FCC regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type and maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by FCC. To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication.
This radio transmitter has been approved by ISED Canada to operate with the antenna types listed below with the maximum permissible gain and required antenna impedance for each antenna type indicated.
Antenna types not included in this list, having a gain greater than the maximum gain indicated for that type, are strictly prohibited for use with this device.
Approved Antennas for use with this device:
- SON151 Wireless Base Station Antenna Sonetics P/N: 521-0014-00 (3dBi)
- Magnet Vehicle Mount Sonetics P/N: 114-0139-00 (5.5dBi) (Sold Separately)
- Permanent Mount Antenna, Sonetics P/N: 114-0138-00 (5.5dBi) (Sold Separately)

- Inspect hearing protectors for dirt damage and foreign objects each time before you place the hearing protector / headset on your head.
- Earmuffs offer excellent protection if the cups are fitted and adjusted properly. Your ears should be completely enclosed by the ear cups.
- Adjust the cups up or down to fit the headband securely at the crown of your head. The best performance is obtained when the cushions form a tight seal against your head. (See Fitment Section for your specific headset type located in this User Manual)
- Never attempt to physically modify/bend/overstress the headband which may compromise NRR rating, proper fit and void product warranty.
- Test the fit as follows
1 – In a noisy environment, plae the palms of your hands on both cups and push the cushions towards your head and release.
2 – You should not notice a signficant difference in the noise level.
3 – If the noise seems to lessen when you press the cups, your earmuff is probably not fitted properly. (If necessary, reposition headset and ensure hat, hair, or jewelry are not interfering with proper fit/seal of the muff pad to head.)
- Regularly check cushions for wear and clean them occasionally as necessary with a damp cloth or disinfect ear seal surface with non-alcohol PPE wipes (Do not use harsh detergents or any solvents which may damage the ear seal over time). Check ear seal cushions for wear. If the cushions become hard, damaged or otherwise deteriorate, they should be replaced promptly (Contact Sonetics or your authorized dealer for exact replacement parts.
- Warning: Hats, balaclavas, glasses or other items worn on the head may potentially prevent proper sealing and reduce the level of hearing protection significantly which can possibly cause hearing damage.
Although hearing protectors can be recommended for protection against the harmful effects of impulsive noise, the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is based on the attenuation of continuous noise and may not be an accurate indicator of the protection attainable against impulsive noise such as gunfire.
CAUTION! Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the product or contained in the owner’s manual.
When using this product, always follow basic safety precautions to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to persons, including the following:
- The headset water and dust egress IP rating does not apply when the battery door or Auxiliary input door is open. DO NOT expose this unit to rain or moisture with either door open.
- The headset is not certified for explosive environments. Do not use the headset to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.
- There are no user serviceable parts inside the headset. Disassembly will void the warranty and will degrade the water sealing and hearing protection.
- Use only the power adapters, power cords and batteries indicated in the manual. If more than one type of power adapter is included in the product, the manual specifies which adapter should be used for each component. Be sure to use the proper adapter for each product component.
- Do not place the power cord where it creates a trip hazard or where it could become chafed and create a fire or electrical hazard.
- Do not subject the unit to high temperatures or leave it in direct sunlight for an extended period of time.
- Retention of dangerous objects: The Headset may hold small objects in the area of the earpiece. Before use, check that the earpiece area is free of staples, pins, clips or any other small metallic objects or foreign matter.
Model: NRR User Information (EPA Noise Reduction Rating)
Attenuation characteristics for all models: Behind Head, Under Helmet, Over-the-Head
|Frequency in Hz|
|Overall device NRR when properly fitted is: =24dB|
The level of noise entering a person’s ear, when hearing protector is worn as directe, is closely approximated by the difference between the A-weighted environmental noise level and the NRR.
Notice: Improper fit of this device will reduce its effectiveness in attenuating noise (see fitting instructions).
1. The environmental noise level as measured at the ear is 92 dBA.
2. The NRR is (value on label) decibels (dB).
3. The level of noise entering the ear is approximately equal to [92dB(A) -NRR] dB(A)].
Caution: For noise environments dominated by frequencies below 500 Hz “the C weighted environmental noise level should be used.’’
Warning: This communication headset has been sealed by the factory to assure noise protection rating and lock out dust and moisture and has no internal user serviceable parts other than the batteries. Do not attempt to open or service the unit as this will potentially reduce NRR and the ability for the device to protect your hearing. Unauthorized disassembly, modification or servicing nullifies warranty and may cause hearing loss or reduction in NRR if the factory seals or calibration are compromised.
General Warning for Sensitive Electronic Devices
This equipment and any radio-based can electronic potentially cause electromagnetic based interference with other equipment and can be interfered with other equipment. This also applies with DECT based Equipment. Due to the very low transmission power associated with DECT the chance for interference is small. However some specific precautions must be taken into account for sensitive electronic equipment e.g. sensitive laboratory equipment, medical instruments or medical implants to avoid incidental influence of equipment operated in straight nearness to sensitive electronic equipment. You are therefore advised not to place the DECT equipment or its antenna in close proximity to sensitive equipment by maintaining a 20cm minimum distance between the sensitive equipment even in standby mode. Please also consider referencing the documentation provided by us and the manufacturer of sensitive electronic items guiding its proper usage.
