Here you go:  from the IAAF (International Amateur Athletic Association, the 
sport's governing body) rulebook:


Rule 161-2:

"...The Starter and/or an assigned Recaller shall wear
headphones in order to clearly hear the acoustic signal emitted when
the apparatus detects a false start (i.e. when reaction time is less than
100/1000ths of a second). As soon as the Starter and/or an assigned
Recaller hears the acoustic signal, and if the gun is fired, there shall
be a recall and the Starter shall immediately examine the reaction
times on the false start control apparatus in order to confirm which
athlete(s) is/are responsible for the false start. This system is strongly
recommended for all other competitions...."
