SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE

SAFETY GUIDELINES

In order to achieve maximum safety while using your Razer Kraken V3 HyperSense, we suggest that you adopt the following guidelines:
Should you have trouble operating the device properly and troubleshooting does not work, unplug the device and contact the Razer hotline or go to support.razer.com for assistance.

Do not take apart the device and do not attempt to operate it under abnormal current loads. Doing so will void your warranty. Keep the device away from liquid, humidity or moisture. Operate the device only within the specific
temperature range of 0°C (32°F) to 40°C (104°F). Should the temperature exceed this range, unplug the device in order to let the temperature stabilize to an optimal level.

The device isolates external ambient sounds even at low volumes, resulting in lowered awareness of your external surroundings. Please remove the device when engaging in any activities that requires active awareness of your surroundings. Listening to excessively loud volumes over extended periods of time can damage your hearing. Furthermore, legislation of certain countries permits a maximum sound level of 86db to affect your hearing for 8 hours a day. We therefore recommend that you reduce the volume to a comfortable
level when listening for prolonged periods of time. Please, take good care of your hearing.

MAINTENANCE AND USE

The Razer Kraken V3 HyperSense requires minimum maintenance to keep it in optimum condition. Once a month we recommend you unplug the device and clean it using a soft cloth or cotton swab to prevent dirt buildup. Do not use soap or harsh cleaning agents
