Place the inductive collar around your neck. The side that reads the word monorean should be placed above the end of your breastbone right below the heigh of your clavicle.

What Bluetooth MP3 player should I use?
Technically you can use any Bluetooth MP3 player with your Bluetooth earpiece Monorean Pro nonetheless finding a compatible MP3 player is not always easy. For this reason we recommend you simply use your cell phone as an MP3 player. If you put your cell phone into airplane mode you’d have essentially a Bluetooth MP3 player. Remember that if you chose to use your cell phone, the APP you’ll be using needs to implement the Bluetooth commands functionality. For example, on iPhone the APP Voice Memos is not compatible with the Bluetooth Pushbuttons while the APP Music perfectly supports the Bluetooth commands.
We recommend using a cell phone in airplane mode instead of a Bluetooth MP3.
If you are still interested on using a Bluetooth MP3 player with your hidden earpiece Monorean Pro you’ll need an MP3 player with the Bluetooth profiles AVRCP and A2DP. Specifically AVRCP will enable the function to navigate among the audio tracks while the A2DP profile will provide the audio compatibility. Few manufacturers will provide the technical specifications of the Bluetooth they provide so it’ll come down mostly to trial and error.
