SAFE USE OF EAR­PHONES

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - EXPERIENCE -

Mod­ern air­craft are de­signed with an in­ter­nal noise level which is in­side oc­cu­pa­tional noise guide­lines. There is an ex­tra source of noise that you con­trol — your ear­phones. If you are us­ing ear­phones in an en­vi­ron­ment with sig­nif­i­cant back­ground noise — such as on board an air­craft — the nat­u­ral re­sponse can be to in­crease the vol­ume of the sound through the ear­phones. There is the risk that, with­out notic­ing, you in­crease the sound to haz­ardous lev­els. Ever been driv­ing your car with the win­dows open and mu­sic play­ing, and then stopped at traf­fic lights to dis­cover that the mu­sic is re­ally loud? It’s the same phe­nom­e­non. Re­mem­ber to make sure your earplugs fit well and are not turned up too loud.
