    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Defines methods of measuring the matching values for the use of personal music players and headphones/earphones defined for the use with those and with standardised connectors or interfaces allowing to combine components of different manufacturers or different design sold separately in order to avoid possible hearing impairment by excessive sound pressure resulting from them.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Part 2 of EN 50332 specifies methods of measuring the matching values for the use of personal music players and headphones/earphones defined for the use with those and with standardised connectors allowing to combine components of different manufacturers or different design sold separately in order to avoid possible hearing impairment by excessive sound pressure resulting from them. Compared with one-package sets the sound pressure level at the ear cannot be fixed by only one condition but needs at least two characteristics, one each for player and the headphones/earphones, defined by the matching values for their connection. Requirements for protection against excessive sound pressure from personal music players are given in EN 60950-1:2006/A12:2011 and EN 60065:2002/A12:2011.
