(wall plug)
Charging Batteries
Charger base has two
battery charging stations
with independent LED
indication lights.
Charger cable
micro-USB to USB
While your batteries may have a small charge when you
unpack them, we recommend fully charging the batteries
before you start using your CS10. It will take up to 2 ½ hours
to fully charge your batteries. Fully charged, each battery will
power the CS10 for up to 9 hours of normal listening.
6
To charge the batteries:
1. Assemble the
charging kit by
plugging the small
end of the cable into
the charger base,
and plugging the
large end into the charger power supply.
Note: The large end of the charging cord can also be
plugged into a standard USB connector on your computer.
2. Plug the power supply into a standard AC outlet.
The lights on top of the charger will glow blue to
confirm power is reaching the charging stations.
3. Connect the batteries to the two charging points on
the charger by aligning the magnets. Once the battery
is in place, the indicator light will change color.
A red light indicates the battery is charging. The light
will turn green when the battery is fully charged and
is ready to use.
WARNING - Magnetic Field
Can be harmful to pacemaker and defibrillator wearers.
Do not place CS10 earpiece or batteries in a shirt
pocket or near your pacemaker or defibrillator.
7
USING YOUR CS10
Personal fit
1. The CS10 comes
with three different
sized ear tips: small
(pre-attached to earpiece nozzle), medium, and large.
If the small tip is not snug in your ear, detach the ear
tip from the nozzle and try the medium or large tip.
2. Slide the ear tip all the way onto the earpiece nozzle.
The end of the sleeve should come into contact with
the base of the nozzle.
Note: Do not wear the earpiece without an
ear tip attached.
3. The battery wire can be adjusted to maximize the
comfort of your CS10. Grasping the body of the
earpiece in one hand, gently pull or push the battery
wire with your
other hand to

USING YOUR CS10
Attaching a battery to the CS10
1. Align the contacts and magnets of a charged battery
with the battery terminals and magnets on the
earpiece.
2. Once the battery snaps into place, the unit is on.
It is normal to have a slight delay of a few seconds
as the unit powers up. To turn the unit off, simply
disconnect the battery.
3. The CS10 provides an audible low battery indication.
When you hear five tones played in sequence
(low, high, low, high, low) it is time to change batteries.
9
USING YOUR CS10
Placing the CS10 on your ear
1
1. Place the battery behind your ear,
hanging the battery wire over your ear.
2. If you wear eyeglasses, position the
2
battery between the earpiece of your
glasses and your ear. Be aware that
removing or adjusting your glasses may
create a distracting noise in your CS10.
3. Insert the ear tip straight into your ear
gently, wiggling slightly to ensure a good
fit. The ideal fit is snug, but not tight.
3
Listen to the recorded audio guide to gain familiarity with
the CS10’s controls. This guide will automatically start to play
approximately 15 seconds after the battery is attached.
Note: To disable the audio guide press and hold the volume
and program buttons for three seconds after the audio guide
has concluded. You can reactivate the audio guide by resetting
the device to its original factory settings. To reset the device
press the buttons in the following sequence: program,
program, volume, volume, program. Resetting the device
will delete any CS10 settings that have been customized.
10
USING YOUR CS10
Adjusting the volume
Press the volume button to increase the volume. You will
hear three tones in ascending pitch to indicate the new level.
When you have reached the maximum volume, the last tone
in the series will descend. Push and hold the volume button
to decrease the volume. You will hear three tones in
descending pitch to indicate the new level.
Selecting a profile
The CS10 comes programmed with three preset profiles
with shaped frequency responses based on the most typical
amplification needs. Each preset profile has automatic level
adjustments to maximize comfort and speech audibility.
Press the program button to toggle between the three
preset profiles.
Preset 1 – (Factory default setting.) Boost in high frequency
range. You will hear “Preset 1” when returning to this preset.
Preset 2 – More boost in high frequency range compared
to Preset 1 along with mild boost in mid-range frequencies.
You will hear “Preset 2” after selecting this preset.
Preset 3 – Equal high and mid-range frequency boost as
Preset 2, but with an increase in low frequency range as
well. You will hear “Preset 3” after selecting this preset.
11
USING YOUR CS10
Go to a relatively quiet environment and listen to a sound
source like a television program or a person speaking with
each of the three presets for some time. You should readjust
the volume to a comfortable level each time after selecting
a new preset. Try all three presets over the course of a few
days in common listening situations like conversations and
watching television in order to determine the most suitable
preset profile and volume setting for your needs.
The most suitable setting is the one you need to change
the least during the course of the day. The automatic
adjustments within each preset profile should be able to
maintain comfort and audibility without having to adjust
the volume except in unusual situations.
Getting used to your CS10
It may take some time to get used to the amplification
provided by your CS10. You will hear many sounds
with clarity you are not used to hearing. Ambient and
environmental sounds like shuffling papers, or cutlery
and dishes may be distracting at first. Your brain needs
to get used to these sounds. Over the course of about
two weeks the initial discomfort will fade as you become
accustomed to the new palate of brighter and clearer
sounds you are experiencing.
12
USING YOUR CS10
Pairing with Bluetooth devices
Pairing your CS10 to a Bluetooth device like smartphones
and computers is a simple one-time operation. Your CS10
will seek and attempt to pair with Bluetooth devices for 3
minutes each time the battery is attached. After that time,
if no devices have been detected, the unit will stop trying
to pair and the Bluetooth transmission will be turned off.
1. Be certain the device you wish to pair with has its
Bluetooth functionality turned on. (See device
instructions for specific details.)
2. Attach a charged battery to the CS10.
3. Watch device you are trying to pair with for CS10
to be detected. CS10 should appear on the screen.
If asked for a pin, enter “0000”.
4. Select the CS10 from list of Bluetooth devices to
ensure pairing.
Note: For best results the CS10 should be within 10
feet of the Bluetooth device.
13
USING YOUR CS10
Answering phone calls
1. To answer a telephone call, press the CS10 volume
button. On some phones, you may need to select the
CS10 when answering a call.
2. During phone calls, the volume button can be used
to control the volume of the call. Press to increase
volume, push and hold to decrease volume.
3. To hang up, press the CS10 program button or end
the call with the phone’s controls.
4. Do not push the program button during a call.
The call could be terminated.
Note: For best results, place phone on same side of
body as CS10.
14
USING YOUR CS10
Advanced customization
For even more functions and options to personalize
the performance of your CS10 please visit
www.SoundWorldSolutions.com. There you can
download the free CS10 Customizer app for smartphones
and computers. This app will allow you to further personalize
the settings within your CS10 via Bluetooth link.
Under the “Personalize” tab of the app you can initiate an
automated program that will walk you through the steps
in tailoring the performance of the CS10 to your specific
preferences.
The “Profiles” tab allows you to select one of the three
preset profiles, or a personal profile developed by the
automated program mentioned above.
Once one of these profiles has been selected on the CS10
Customizer app it becomes the baseline profile in the CS10.
The program button can now be used to toggle between
additional settings designed to optimize the performance
of the CS10 in specific situations. (See page 16.)
15
USING YOUR CS10
Press the program button to toggle between:
Baseline Profile – You will hear one confirmation
beep when returning to your baseline profile.
Restaurant Mode – You will hear two quick
confirmation beeps when entering the CS10’s
Restaurant Mode. Restaurant Mode emphasizes
the directional microphone to focus on sounds
coming from in front of you and provide more
rejection of unwanted sounds in noisy environments.
Entertainment Mode – You will hear three quick
confirmation beeps when entering the CS10’s
Entertainment Mode. Entertainment Mode provides
increased low frequency response for a more
natural sound at musical or theatrical events.
“Reset” will return the program button to its original
mode allowing the user to cycle through the preset
profiles.
The “Equalizer” provides sliders to adjust the individual
settings for treble, mid, and bass frequencies for a
customized user experience. There is also a slider to adjust
the volume, similar to the volume button on the CS10.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Industry Canada Regulatory Information
Operation of this device is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This
device may not cause interference and (2) This device must accept any
interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation
of the device. See RSS-GEN 7.1.5.
FDA Note on Personal Sound Amplifiers (PSAPs)
PSAPs are intended to amplify environmental sound for non-hearing impaired
consumers. They are not intended to compensate for hearing impairment.
Examples of situations in which PSAPs typically are used include hunting
(listening for prey), bird watching, listening to lectures with a distant speaker,
and listening to soft sounds that would be difficult to hear (e.g., distant
conversations, performances). Because PSAPs are not intended to diagnose,
treat, cure or mitigate disease and do not alter the structure or function of
the body, they are not devices as defined in the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
As such, there is no regulatory classification, product code, or definition for
these products. Furthermore, there are not requirements for registration of manufacturers and listing of these products with FDA.
However, PSAPs are subject to applicable provisions of the Radiation Control
for Health and Safety Act of 1968, under which FDA regulates electronic
products that emit sonic vibrations, such as sound amplification equipment.
(See also 21 CFR 1000.15.) Manufacturers of PSAPs must report defects and
adverse events and take other measures described in 21 CFR Part 1003.
Manufacturers of PSAPs must also comply with requirements to repurchase,
repair, or replace electronic products required under 21 CFR Part 1004.
