Charging your MN8

Your MN8 is charged and tested before shipping — so you can start using it straight away.

To maximise the use of your MN8, we recommend that you fully charge it before use. If the multifunctional LED does not flash when you press the power button, it requires charging. Your MN8 can take up to two hours to fully charge.

When your MN8 is charging the LED will turn red. When your MN8 is fully charged the LED will turn green.

MN8 does not turn on when charging; this is a safety feature to prevent electrocution, do not charge your MN8 when it is in use.


Turning your headset on/off

To turn your MN8 on, press and hold the power button for two seconds.When you do this, the multifunctional LED will flash and you will hear an audio prompt saying ‘power on’.

To turn your MN8 off, press and hold the power button for five seconds until you hear an audio prompt saying ‘power off’ and the LED turns off. When you turn your MN8 off, the multifunctional LED will not be illuminated.


Connecting MN8 to your device

Before using your MN8 for the first time, please download the latest version of EMOTIV App and EmotivPRO. MN8 requires two Bluetooth connections, one for audio streaming (Bluetooth Classic) and one for data (Bluetooth Low Energy), you can use both or one at a time.

When you turn on your MN8 for the first time, it will automatically go into pairing mode and the multifunctional LED will flash red and blue. We recommended that you pair MN8 (data) device first, then pair MN8 (audio) device second.

For more detailed information on pairing your MN8 for the first time, please refer to the MN8 User Manual.


Device Fitting

MN8 is designed to be a personal device for fit and comfort and the earhook is adjustable.

Place your MN8 over your neck with the pod resting against your shoulders.

Take the left-hand pod and feed the ear hook over your ear.

Push the eartips into your ear canal and make sure that it fits comfortably, but snuggly. Both bumps in the earhook should be touching the back of your ear. Repeat for your right ear.


Fitting / Changing the tips

MN8 is shipped with medium tips fitted and we have included two additional sizes in the ziplock, large and small.To do this, pull to remove the current ones from the metal canal sensors.Once removed, you can fit the new earbuds by pushing them onto the metal canal sensor.

Due to the sensitive nature of EEG recordings, the buds should feel very snug in your ear so there is no gap. If in doubt, size up.

Adjusting the ear hook

If it feels like the ear hook is too tight or loose around your ear, it can be adjusted by gently squeezing or pulling it. Do not apply too much force as this could break the ear hook.
