Bluetooth earpiece for MP3 player
Many users choose to record themselves dictating the subjects and save the recordings to their MP3 player so that they can listen to themselves during the exam. Monorean Pro not only lets you listen to previously recorded dictations but also lets you navigate between tracks using the MP3 pushbuttons. If you want to use the Monorean Pro to make a phone call, read: Connecting the Monorean Pro Bluetooth earpiece with Your Cell Phone for more information.
Connecting the Bluetooth earpiece to the MP3 player
Charge the control box connecting the USB cable to the connector with the label: Make sure the USB port on your computer is in good working order. While the control box is charging, keep the computer turned on.
Store the device fully charged.
The battery indicator ( ) will be red indicating: charging. It’ll be fully charged once the indicator turns green.
The inductive collar should be worn around your neck. The side with the word monorean should be placed just below the height of your clavicle, above the end of your breastbone. When you put a shirt on, the back side of the collar will not touch your neck but will instead go a little down to the area of your upper back, making it impossible to see.
Use cloth or plastic surgical tape to secure the collar to your body. Be especially careful in areas of the collar indicated as Fragile Area.
Connect the collar to the connector in the control box with the label:
Turn the control box on using the “ON-OFF“ switch Make sure it’s fully charged
Connect the control box to your Bluetooth MP3 player or cell phone via Bluetooth. To do so, press and hold the Bluetooth button for five seconds or until the blue light flashes. Then look through your phone’s list for the Monorean Pro device and select it. For more information, please refer to the manufacturer’s instruction manual for your specific model. If you are prompted for a Bluetooth password, it will be 0000. Remember that the mobile or device that it is linked to must always remain with you or within a maximum distance of four meters.
The Monorean Pro control box optimizes power usage so that the battery can perform at its best. If the control box’s primary battery runs out, it will keep a reserve to keep the Bluetooth connection.
Once your phone is paired with Monorean Pro, the Bluetooth link Monorean Pro will not be visible to other devices.

How to use the Bluetooth earpiece with MP3
You have the hidden earpiece Monorean Pro connected to your cell phone or MP3 Bluetooth player right now. Do not forget to save the audio tracks to your MP3 player or phone.
Enter the exam room with the hidden earpiece in place, and when you’re ready to listen to your own dictations, press the “play/pause” pushbutton ( ) to begin listening to the first recording stored in your cell phone or Bluetooth MP3 player through the hidden earpiece. Press the “next track” pushbutton ( ) until you reach the recording that will assist you in your exam. Press the “previous track” pushbutton ( ) to return to the previous audio recording.
Press and hold the pushbuttons to trigger the flashforward/rewind function.
You can skip ahead in the same track by pressing and holding the “next track” pushbutton if the track is too long and you want to reach a specific minute. When you’ve reached the desired minute, release the pushbutton. You can press and hold the “previous track” to move the scroll backward if you went past the desired minute.
What Bluetooth MP3 player should I use?
Technically, you can connect your Bluetooth earpiece Monorean Pro to any Bluetooth MP3 player; however, finding a compatible MP3 player is not always easy. As a result, we advise you to use your phone as an MP3 player. You can use your phone as a Bluetooth MP3 player by putting it in airplane mode. If you choose to use your phone, keep in mind that the APP you’re using must support Bluetooth functionality. The iPhone app Voice Memos, for example, does not support Bluetooth Pushbuttons, whereas the app Music does.
We recommend using a cell phone in airplane mode instead of a Bluetooth MP3.
If you are still interested in using a Bluetooth MP3 player with your Monorean Pro hidden earpiece, you will need a Bluetooth MP3 player with the AVRCP and A2DP profiles. Specifically, AVRCP will enable navigation between audio tracks, while A2DP will provide audio compatibility. Few manufacturers will provide the technical specifications of the Bluetooth they provide; therefore, trial and error will predominate.
