xTag™ Wireless Microphone
The xTag wireless microphone uses encrypted
communication to synchronize with the Charger Base.
The xTag Microphone provides high quality full duplex
audio between the user and the computer.
2. Attach the Microphone to clothing or to a lanyard
close to the mouth, within 6-12 inches (15–30cm) is
recommended. Make sure microphone is attached
securely with the microphone port pointed up
toward mouth.
3. With the microphone in the wearing position, unmute the microphone by pressing and releasing the
Mute button (confirm by viewing flashing GREEN
LED). If the volume is too low, move the
microphone closer to the mouth.
4. To turn the microphone off, return the Microphone
to the Charger Base. The Microphone LED will
show a 5 second self-test pattern and begins
charging (solid RED or GREEN LED). Alternately,
turn off the Microphone manually by pressing and
holding the Mute button for 10 seconds, until the
LED turns solid RED, then release the mute button
and the LED will turn OFF.

Using the xTag Microphone
1. Remove the Microphone from the Charger Base.
The double-flashing RED LED on the Microphone
and Charger Base confirm that the mic is paired
and muted.
The Wireless Microphone has a clip on the back
which allows the Microphone to be easily attached
onto a shirt pocket, blouse, lapel or lanyard.

If the microphone is moved out of range of the Base
Station (~65 feet or 20m) the connection will be
dropped (LED flashes all colors) and the microphone
will mute.
After 15 seconds the microphone will beep 5 times,
and will continue beeping every 30 seconds to remind
the user to return the microphone to the room. If the
microphone is moved back into range within 15
minutes the connection will automatically be reestablished to its original state, and the beeping will
cease. If not, the microphone will turn off.
Note: The xTag microphone is designed to be used
with the xTag system only. This microphone is not
compatible with other Revolabs Solo™ Executive
systems, nor are Solo microphones compatible with
the xTag Charger Base.
-12 -
Adjusting the Volume on the xTag Microphone Earpiece
To change the volume on the Wearable microphone
earpiece, use the dial on the earpiece wire.
Charging the Batteries
To charge the batteries place the Microphone into the
xTag Charger Base.
Note: The unit will only work on a powered USB port
that can supply 500mA (found on most computers and
laptops). It will not work with un-powered hubs (no AC
adapter to power the hub).
Turning the dial towards the earpiece, as shown in
the figure, will increase the volume, and turning
the dial towards the microphone will decrease the
volume. Use the attached clothing clip to secure the
earpiece wire.
During charging, the Microphone status LED indicator
changes from solid RED to solid GREEN as charging
completes. The Charger Base status indicator remains
off during charging. The Microphone is always muted
while in the Charger Base. The battery charges from
fully depleted to fully charged in approximately two
hours, however, it is “quick-charged” to 80% capacity
in 45 minutes.
Note: A fully charged battery provides approximately 8
hours of talk time.
When to Charge
Before using the Microphone for the first time, charge
for 8 hours or overnight in the Charger Base (until
microphone LED turns solid GREEN).
When the Microphone LED begins flashing alternating
YELLOW and RED or YELLOW and GREEN, the
battery needs recharging. Over time (years), batteries
gradually wear down and require charging after a
shorter period of use. This is normal.
Important: The Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery
that powers the xTag Microphone is not user
serviceable. Please see the Revolabs website
(www.revolabs.com) for information regarding battery
replacement and proper disposal procedures.
Warning: Exposing the batteries to fire may result
in an explosion.

Setting the Broadcast Power Level
In confined settings where multiple xTag systems are
used, or where audio interference is likely, it may be
necessary to reduce the broadcast power levels.
The broadcast power level between the xTag
Microphone and Charger Base can be set to the
following three levels.
•
•
•
Highest power level – 60 feet (25M) maximum
operating distance between Microphone and
Charger Base (default setting).
Medium power level – 20 feet (7M) maximum
operating distance between Microphone and
Charger Base.
Lowest power level – 6 feet (2M) maximum
operating distance between Microphone and
Charger Base.
To set the broadcast power level:
Press and hold the Mute button on the Charger Base
while plugging the USB cable into the Charger Base.
The status LED on the Charger Base will display a
sequence of flashes, during which it will flash once,
then twice, then three times, where:
1 GREEN flash = full power
2 GREEN flashes = medium power
3 GREEN flashes = low power.
This cycle will repeat 10 times. During any of the
cycles, simply release the Mute button immediately
after the desired power indication, to set the xTag
broadcast/receive power.
-15 -
Pairing the Microphone to the Charger Base
“Pairing” creates an encrypted association between the
Wireless Microphone and the Charger Base with a
unique electronic serial number. Once the Microphone
and Charger Base have been paired, the Microphone
will automatically try to connect to the Charger Base
whenever it is lifted from the Charger Base.
Remember, the Microphone is always muted (flashing
RED LED) when it is first removed from the Charger
Base and the MUTE button needs to be pressed to
activate the Microphone, as indicated by a flashing
GREEN LED.
The Microphone in new systems come paired to the
Charger Base. However, if a replacement Microphone
is ever required, it will need to be manually “paired.”
If a Microphone is lifted from the Charger Base and the
Microphone LED slowly flashes alternating RED and
GREEN for 10 seconds, it means that the Microphone
needs to be paired to the system.
To pair the Microphone to the Charger Base:
1. Make sure the Microphone is turned OFF (no LED
activity). If the unit is ON, press and hold the
MUTE button for 10 seconds until the LED turns
solid RED then release. Alternately, place the
Microphone in the Charger Base for less than 2
seconds.
2. Enable the pairing mode by holding the
Microphone’s Mute button down for eight seconds.
The LED will turn solid GREEN and then solid
RED. Release the Mute button. The Microphone
unit is now in pairing mode.
-16 -
3. Push and hold the Charger Base’s Mute button for
eight seconds to enter into pairing mode then
release.
The LED will be solid RED until pairing is
complete, as indicated by double flashing RED on
both the Microphone and the Charger Base (paired
and muted audio). If pairing fails at the end of one
minute on either unit, the LED will flash alternately
GREEN and RED for a few seconds and turn OFF.
If this happens, repeat these steps.
