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.
Restricted use with certain medical devices
Hearing Aids

interference, you may want to consult with your hearing aid manufacturer
to discuss alternatives.
Other Medical Devices
If you use any other personal medical device, consult the manufacturer of
your device to determine if it is adequately shielded from RF energy. Your
physician may be able to assist you in obtaining this information.

Introduction
Congratulations on the purchase of your Revolabs
xTag ™ USB wireless communication system! This
wireless system provides high band-width audio from a
compact wireless microphone enabling reliable, secure,
and un-tethered personal communication.
The xTag ™ Wireless Microphone System is a unique
marriage of innovative technology and ergonomic
stylish design, featuring 1.9 GHz DECT technology.
This product enhances audio communication in both
personal and enterprise applications, using MultiCarrier, Time Division Multiple Access and Time
Division Duplex (MC/TDMA/TDD) radio transmissions
both to and from the microphone.
This means that the system:
•
Can co-exist with other wireless products such as
wireless LANs (802.11 B&G) and cellular phones,
Eliminates the unwanted noise that these devices
can cause.
Note: It is recommended that no more than 3 xTag ™
Systems be used in the same room.

•
Quick release lanyard and a USB cable
•

Revolabs xTag ™ Charger Base
Use the Charger Base to store and charge the
Microphone when not in use. The Microphone must be
properly inserted into the base and seated flush for
charging to occur.
1
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).
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 can be “quick-charged” to 80%
capacity in 45 minutes.
Note: A fully charged battery provides approximately 8
hours of talk time.
When to Charge
2
Before using the Microphone for the first time, charge
for 8 hours or overnight in the Charger Base (until
microphone LED turns solid GREEN).

Recharging
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.
Mute Button
Pressing the MUTE button toggles between muting
(flashing RED LED status) and un-muting (flashing
GREEN LED status) on the Wireless Microphone.

Important: The Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery
that powers the xTag ™ Microphone is not user
serviceable. Please see the Revolabs Knowledge Base
website area (www.revolabs.com) for information

Adjusting the Volume
The volume of the Microphone is set at the factory and
cannot be adjusted on the Wireless Microphone. It may
be possible to change the volume on computer or IP
calls by adjusting the software control parameters (see
Computer Software Settings, below).
Note: Moving the Microphone closer to the mouth will
increase the volume.
Note: Pressing the MUTE button on a Microphone will
similarly toggle between mute and un-mute and display
on both status LEDs.
USB Connection
Use the supplied cable to connect the mini USB
connector to the Charger Base and the standard end
to your computer USB port.
To change the volume on the earpiece, use the dial on
the earpiece wire. Turning the dial towards the
earpiece will increase the volume, and turning the dial
towards the Microphone will decrease the volume.
Your computer will alert you that it has found new
hardware, and the Revolabs xTag ™ operating software
will automatically load. See the user settings specified
below for adjusting the audio connections to your
liking.
Installing the xTag ™ USB System
The xTag ™ USB system is easily installed in the home
or office. Simply follow the instructions below to attach
the unit to your equipment.
Computer Software Set-up
Use the supplied USB cable to connect the mini USB
connector to the Charger Base and the standard end
to your computer USB port. Your computer will alert
13

you that it has found new hardware, and the Revolabs
xTag ™ operating software will automatically load.
It is possible to configure your computer settings to
playback audio through the earpiece attached to the
Wearable microphone (default settings) or through the
computer speakers (internal or desktop).
The following examples use the Windows XP Operating
System Classic settings. You may notice slight
differences in appearance when using other Windows
operating systems.
To modify the default microphone earpiece audio
output settings:
1. At the lower-right of your screen, click the Start
button.
2. Select Settings and Control Panel.
3. Click the Sounds and Audio Devices icon.
2. Attach the Microphone to your person, as close to
the mouth as possible (within 6 - 12 inches is
optimal).
3. With the Microphone positioned, un-mute the
Microphone by pressing and releasing the Mute
button.
The flashing green LEDs on the Microphone and
Charger Base confirm that the Microphone is now
active.
To Turn off the Microphone:
Return the Microphone to the Charger Base. The
Microphone LED will show a 5 second self-test
pattern.
Alternately, turn off the Microphone manually by
pressing and holding the Mute button for
approximately 10 seconds, until the LED turns
solid RED, then release the mute button.
Note: If the Microphone is moved out of range of the
Charger Base (~65 feet, 20M) the connection
between the Charger Base and Microphone will be
dropped and the Microphone will mute (LED flashes
alternating RED, YELLOW and GREEN). If the
microphone is moved back into range within 15
minutes the connection will automatically be reestablished to its original state. If not, the
microphone will turn off after 5 minutes.
Note: The xTag™ microphone is designed to be
used with the xTag™ system only. This microphone
is not compatible with other Revolabs Solo™ Desktop
or Executive systems, nor are Solo-Desktop
microphones compatible with the xTag™ Charger
Base.
