GUIDE
Thank you for ordering your
Solo II headset top from Hello Direct.
You’ve made a wise choice in selecting a Solo II headset. This is a
high quality, commercial grade set designed for heavy everyday
use. With its soft adjustable materials that custom-fit your ear,
no other headset on the market today comes close to matching
Solo II’s comfort. In fact, your Solo II headset is so lightweight,
you can wear it all day, every day.
Solo II lets you keep both hands free to take notes, check files,
even access your computer while you’re on the phone—without
getting neck and shoulder cramps from scrunching your handset
between your ear and shoulder. You’ll sound great to your callers,
too, because your Solo II headset is equipped with a noise canceling microphone that won’t pick up background noise. It transmits
only your voice—clearly and naturally.
SETUP AND COMPATIBILITY
Your amplifier needs to be connected before you can use your headset.
The Solo II headset top plugs into the quick disconnect cable of your
Hello Direct brand amplifier. Please refer to the Quick Setup Guide in
your amplifier box.
SOUND QUALITY
Sound level in the headset is adjusted via your amplifier.
Again, please refer to the Quick Setup Guide in your amplifier box.
ANSWERING AND PLACING CALLS
You’ll need to lift the handset off the cradle to begin your call, and put it
back when you’re through. (Our Touch-N-Talk, Item #1275, can help. Just
pull the lever, and the Touch-N-Talk device raises the handset off the
cradle.)
If your phone has a “headset jack” or switch, you won’t need to take the
handset off the cradle. Simply press the button to start and end your
calls. (Usually this is the SPEAKERPHONE or LINE button. Check your
telephone’s manual for details.)
If your phone has a 2 prong (PBX) jack, our Modular to PBX Adapter,
Item #1343, also lets you start and end calls with the press of a button.

Wearing the Solo II headset
HEADSET COMFORT
If you’ve never used a headset, wearing one may take some getting used
to. Like wearing glasses for the first time, it will feel different and perhaps
a little awkward at first. But once you’re used to it, you won’t want to
give it up.
Give yourself some time to gradually get used to wearing your new
headset. Use it 30 to 60 minutes a day for the first week, an hour or
2 a day for the second week, and 3 to 4 hours a day for the third week.
By the end of the fourth week, you’ll prefer using the headset for all
your calls. Guaranteed!
Please read the installation instructions on the next page
to get a secure and custom fit.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT EAR CUSHION
Your Solo II comes
with two different
ear cushions. Try
them both to determine which is the
most comfortable
for you.
For maximum comfort and efficiency,
we recommend you read all the
information provided
in this guide before using
your new headset.

Installation instructions
1. FITTING YOUR SOLO II FOR EITHER EAR
The Solo II can be worn on either ear. To switch it to the other ear,
simply rotate the speaker so that the Hello Direct logo rotates through
the bottom of the earhook, and continue rotating until it faces the
opposite side. (See Figure #1.)
Note: The speaker will not rotate 360 degrees. Do not force it past its stop position.

2. CUSTOMIZE THE FIT
Before putting the Solo II on, follow either the “Right Ear” or “Left Ear”
figures below and give the earhook the proper starting bend:
TO WEAR ON THE RIGHT EAR
Bend into an “S” shape.
Hold here
with thumb
and forefinger.
Earhook
Start with no bend,
and the earhook
pointing toward
you as shown above.

3. PREPARING TO PUT THE HEADSET ON
Swing the speaker out on its pivot, so it’s not in the way (Figure #3A).
While maintaining the bend, squeeze the flexible part of the earhook
slightly closed (see Figure #3B). The intent is to make sure the inside
shape of the earhook is smaller than your ear so it expands to your ear
shape when you put it on.
Swing speaker
out of the way.

4. PUTTING THE HEADSET ON
If you wear glasses, we recommend that you
remove them to put the headset on.
• Put the headset straight down on your
ear until it rests securely on the top
and behind your ear. This will allow
the earhook to expand to fit your ear
width.
• Tighten the bottom of the earhook as
necessary so it fits snugly against your
ear. Swing the speaker back in until
the cushion is resting comfortably
on your ear. Adjust it up or down to Press in here.
center it over your ear canal.
See Figure #4.

5. FINAL ADJUSTMENT
• If the headset is too tight, flatten the bend slightly. (See Figure #5.)
• If the headset is too loose, remove it and create a more exaggerated
bend before putting it on. (See Figure #6.)

ATTACHING THE CLOTHING CLIP
After adjusting your headset, attach the
clothing clip, leaving enough slack for
comfortable head movement.
Replacement parts
Microphone screens and ear cushions should be replaced every 2 to 3
months for hygienic reasons and optimum performance. They should
also be replaced if the headset is passed along to a new user.
REPLACING THE FOAM MICROPHONE SCREEN
To replace the microphone screen, use a pair
of tweezers to peel off the old foam screen.
Remove the adhesive backing from the new
foam screen and install over the microphone
element.
