System Components
Introduction
Congratulations on the purchase of a Revolabs digital wireless
communication system! We are pleased that you have chosen the
Revolabs Solo™ Desktop Wireless Microphone System with 1.9
GHz DECT technology. The Revolabs Solo™ Desktop provides
high band-width audio from a compact wireless microphone
enabling reliable, secure and un-tethered personal communication.
The Revolabs Solo™ Desktop Wireless Microphone System is a
unique marriage of innovative technology and ergonomic stylish
design. This product enhances audio communication in both
personal and enterprise applications. The system uses 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, and eliminates “buzzing” in the audio from cell
phones.
4
Your Revolabs Solo™ Desktop System
package contains a compact Charger Base, a
bi-directional (full duplex) wireless microphone,
a 5V power supply adapter, a USB cable, and
an external audio cable. There are many
features that this system provides that increase
the productivity of personal communication
whether in standard hands free phone use, IP
telephony, or even in large group conference
applications.
5
Revolabs Solo™ Desktop Charger Base
The Charger Base is used for storing and charging the Microphone
when not in use. The Microphone must be properly inserted into
the base and seated flush for charging to occur.

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. Your computer will alert you
that it has found new hardware, and the soloDesktop operating software will automatically
load. See the user settings specified above for
adjusting the audio connections to your liking.

MUTE button — duplicates the Microphone mute function
AUDIO port — 2.5mm analog in/out external audio connection
(line level 0dB)
5. Mini USB connector — computer audio connection
6. POWER connector — power supply input
Mute Button
Pressing the MUTE button toggles between muting (flashing RED
LED status) and un-muting (flashing GREEN LED status) the
Wireless Microphone.
Note 1: Pressing the MUTE button on a Microphone will similarly
toggle between mute and un-mute and show on both status LEDs.
Note 2: Pressing and holding the MUTE button while plugging in
the power adapter allows the user to reduce the range of the
system from 60 feet (25M), to 20 feet (7M) or 6 feet (2M).The
status LED on the charger will flash the power level setting 10
times, where 1 flash = full power, 2 flashes = mid power, and 3
flashes = low power. Reduce power levels for multiple system
installations in confined areas if audio has interference noise.
The Desktop System also provides a cable for connecting the
Charger Base to an external audio or
conferencing system. This feature
can be used to amplify a presenter at
a lectern, for example. The 2.5mm to
RCA cable included with the system allows for the unbalanced low
level audio from the Microphone to be connected into a mixer or
conferencing system using the RCA male jack. Further, output
from the mixer or conferencing system can be connected to the
RCA female plug to be heard through the earpiece connected to
the Microphone.
Power Module
The Charger Base requires 5VDC power. Plug the
supplied AC adapter into a convenient 110-240VAC,
50-60Hz power outlet and the adapter into the power
connector.

Charging the Batteries
Revolabs Solo™ Wireless Microphone
How to Charge
Wearable Microphone
1. Place the Microphone into the Desktop Charger Base.
2. During charging, the Microphone status LED
indicator is solid RED and remains on until
charging completes and then turns off. 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
about two hours. It can be “quick-charged” to
approximately 80% capacity in 45 minutes.
3. When charging completes, the Microphone RED LED turns off
and Microphone is ready for use.
Note: A fully charged
battery provides approximately 8 hours of talk time.
4. If the Microphone is left in the Charger Base for an extended
period, the LED will turn on again indicating a top-up charge.
The wireless personal microphone can be worn on the user’s shirt
pocket, lapel or on a lanyard. It provides high quality full duplex
audio between the user and the computer and/or phone system.
The system allows the wearer to step out of the office or
conference room and still participate in the call.

When to Charge
First-time use — before use the Microphone, charge it for 8 hours
or overnight in the Charger Base (until microphone LED turns off).
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.
The Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery that powers the
Microphone is not user serviceable. Please see the Revolabs
Knowledge Base website area (www.revolabs.com) for
replacement instructions and to assure that the proper disposal
method is used. Warning: Never dispose of batteries in a fire
because they may explode.

Using the Wearable Microphone
1. Remove the Microphone from the Charger Base. The
Microphone turns on and mutes automatically when removed
from Charger Base (flashing RED LED).
2. The Wireless Microphone has a clip on the back which allows
the Microphone to be easily clipped onto a shirt pocket, blouse
or lapel. The Microphone can also be clipped on to a lanyard
and be worn around the neck. Attach the Microphone as close
to the mouth as possible (within 6 - 12 inches is
recommended).
3. With the Microphone in the wearing position, un-mute the
Microphone by pressing and releasing the MUTE button
(confirm by viewing the flashing GREEN LED on both the
Microphone and Charger Base).
4. To turn off the Microphone, return it to the Charger Base. You
may also turn it off manually by pressing and holding the MUTE
button for approximately10 seconds until the LED turns solid
RED and then releasing the mute button.
5. If the Microphone is moved out of range of the Charger Base
(~65 feet) the connection will be dropped and the Microphone
will mute (LED flashes alternating RED, YELLOW and
GREEN). After 15 seconds the microphone will beep 5 times,
and will continue beeping every 30 seconds to remind the user
to return the microphone. If the microphone is moved back into
range within 5 minutes the connection will automatically be reestablished to its original state, and the beeping will cease. If
not, the microphone will turn off after 5 minutes.
Using the TableTop Microphone
1. Remove the microphone from the Charger Base. The
microphones turn on and mute themselves automatically when
removed from Charger Base (flashing RED LED), to reduce
noise while placing the microphone on the table.
3. With the microphone in position, un-mute the microphone by
pressing and releasing the MUTE button (confirm by viewing
flashing GREEN LED).
4. To turn microphones off, return the microphone unit to the
Charger Base or press and hold the MUTE button for ~10
seconds until the LED turns solid RED and release button.
5. If the microphones are placed too far from the Base Station
(~100 feet (30 meters)) 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 indicate that it is out of range.
Move the microphone closer to the Base Station and the
connection will automatically be re-established to its original
state, and the beeping will cease. If not, the microphone will
continue beeping until it turns off in about 15 minutes.
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.
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.
2. The TableTop microphone should be centered on the table in
front of users, between 2 to 5 feet (.75 to 1.75m) away. It is
always better to have the microphone as close to the person
speaking as possible, but avoid placing the microphone where it
might be blocked by laptops or meeting paperwork.

Pairing the Microphone to the Charger Base
“Pairing” creates an association between the Wireless Microphone
and the Charger Base with a unique electronic serial number.
When the Microphone and Charger Base have been previously
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 removed from the Charger Base and the MUTE
button needs to be pressed to make it “live” (flashing GREEN
LED).
Installation
The Revolabs Solo™ Desktop system is easily installed into either
the office or conference room environment. Simply plug the power
supply into a convenient outlet and attach the USB cable to a
computer or laptop, or connect the 2.5mm audio cables to an audio
system.
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.
Microphone Pairing Instructions
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 (do not release when you hear
two beeps), to turn the unit off, if needed. An alternative
method of turning off is to place the Microphone in the Charger
Base for less than 2 seconds.
2. Place the Microphone into pairing mode by holding the
Microphone’s MUTE button down for ten seconds. The LED will
turn solid GREEN and then solid RED. Release the MUTE
button. The Microphone unit is now in pairing mode.
3. Within 5 seconds, push and hold the Charger Base’s MUTE
button for six seconds to enter into pairing mode. The LED will
be solid RED until pairing is confirmed, as indicated by a short
GREEN flash followed by flashing RED on both the
Microphone and the Charger Base. If pairing fails on either
unit, the LED will flash alternately GREEN and RED for a few
seconds.
12
Computer Software Set-up
Use the supplied cable to connect the mini USB connector to the
Charger Base and the standard end to your computer USB port.
Your computer will alert you that it has found new hardware, and
the solo-Desktop operating software will automatically load.
It is possible to configure your computer settings to playback audio
through the earpiece attached to the microphone (default settings)
or through the computer speakers (internal or desktop). The
examples shown below are using the Windows XP Operating
System Classic settings - other Windows operating systems might
look slightly different.
13
To modify the default microphone earpiece audio output settings
open the control panel and then open Sounds and Audio Devices.
The solo-Desktop audio codec software will be selected and
shown similar to the following screen (dependent on Windows
operating system and other audio software previously installed).
Opening the Volume
settings for “Sound
recording” shows the
levels selected for the
microphone input
(Capture) on the
computer. Make sure that
the level for the
Microphone is close to
the top (maximum) and
that the Mute box is not
checked.
Opening the Volume settings for “Sound playback” allows you to
control what you hear in the Microphone’s earpiece. Adjust the
speaker level at the master Volume control if necessary. To
prevent the Microphone directly feeding back its own audio to the
earpiece (i.e. “sidetone”), check the “Mute” box in the “Microphone”
volume control panel. It may be necessary to use the OptionsProperties menu to display the “Microphone” volume control.
14
IP telephony and computer telephony applications (Skype, for
example) may also offer options for controlling the audio levels and
playback capabilities. Please consult the application guide for the
software package for additional instructions.
To playback audio through the internal or external speakers of the
computer instead of the earpiece, change the Sound playback
Default device to your regular audio codec (SigmaTelAudio in this
example) and click on Apply or OK.
Note: Laptop computers with built-in microphones may continue to
operate even when the solo-Desktop software is running. To
prevent the built-in microphone audio feeding through to the
speakers, check the Mute box on the laptop audio program Input
Monitor, as shown below.
