CHANGE ERATOSURROUND

Using DSP (Digital Sound Processing) technology in our true wireless earphones, we can restore the spatial distance missing in traditional earphones. Calibrated with our micro-driver and its acoustic chamber, ERATOSURROUND™ can reduce sound image distortion to create a more accurate sound.

  • 3D Normal – simulates surround sound of a typical room
  • 3D Wide – simulates surround sound of a concert hall
Modes LED Notification/Sound
3D Normal (Default) 2 red flashes/2 beeps
3D Wide Enable 3 red flashes/3 beeps

DOES ERRATOSURROUND REQUIRE AN APP?

No, the digital signal processing(DSP) that is used for the 3D surround is hardware-based and does not require an app.

ARE YOU ABLE TO USE THE LEFT AND RIGHT EARPHONES ON DIFFERENT DEVICES?

No, only the LEFT master earphone can be connected to a device and the RIGHT will need to connect to the LEFT earphone.

HOW MANY DEVICES CAN PAIR WITH THE MUSE 5?

MUSE 5 can store up to 8 devices profiles, however, only ONE active profile can be used at a time.

Once paired beyond the 8 devices limit, the first profile will be remove followed by the second and so forth.

WHY IS MY RIGHT EARPHONE NOT WORKING?

  1. Verify that your earphones are sufficiently charged. (See HOW TO/ CHARGE AND BATTERY DURATION)
  2. Long press the right earphone for approximately 2 seconds
    • Listen for “Power On” followed by a beep
  3. The RIGHT earphone should automatically pair to the LEFT master earphones
    • If it does not automatically sync, see TROUBLESHOOT/ RE-SYNCING LEFT AND RIGHT EARPHONES

WHY DOES THE SIGNAL DROP?

Signal drop occurs when there is significant interference between the earphones or the host device which causes data loss during transmission,  this a relatively normal occurs with wireless devices.

If you are experiencing a high amount of signal drop, try moving the host device closer to the LEFT earphones to see if the situation improve. Also, make sure that the earphones are pointed upwards to improve the connection and try to avoid areas with high-level of radio interference like cellular towers and Wi-Fi routers.

WHERE CAN I GET FOAM TIPS?

Comply Isolation  T-200  (http://www.complyfoam.com/products/t-200/)

WHY DOES THE BATTERY NOT LAST AS LONG?

Usage hours may be shorter depending on the codec and the conditions of use. For prolonging the usage of the earphones, please set the volume to a moderate level and lower audio bitrate when possible.

  • Media playback time: Max. 4 hours (aptX/SBC/AAC codecs)
  • Hands-free/Talk time: Max. 6 hours

WHEN WATCHING/STREAMING VIDEOS, WHY DOES THE AUDIO NOT SYNC WITH THE VIDEO?

In True Wireless, instead of one Bluetooth receiver, there are two and data have to be transmitted twice which can cause latency issue in playing video/audio. The earphones require the data to buffer about 20-80 millisecond (ms) to prevent signal drop-out between earphones, which can cause latency when watching a video.

Devices and apps that your earphones are paired to could compensate by adding a slight video delay to synchronize with the Bluetooth latency. As an accessory manufacturer, we do not have such control over the devices and app that are used with our earphones and we are looking into future improvements that would help with the latency issue.

To minimize the latency when watching a video, we ask you to lower the bit rate of the audio if possible, move the host device closer to the LEFT earphone so to reduce any environmental interference between the devices, and lastly by disabling the ERATOSURROUND it may improve the latency when viewing videos.

*Results will vary from device and app. 

WHY DOES ONLY ONE EARPHONE WORK DURING PHONE CALLS?

Due to safety concerns, the MUSE 5 with the Hands-Free Profile (HFP) specifications as defined by the Bluetooth SIG, only the LEFT master earphones will work for phone calls so you are able to hear out the other ear.

HOW TO SWITCH THE ERATOSURROUND ?

Use the button on the left earphone to control the sound mode. *

Please quickly press 4 times in standby mode. As you hear the tone, it means you switch to another sound mode.

Modes LED pattern Numbers of tones
3D enalbe Red flashing 2 times 2
Wide 3D enable Red flashing 3 times 3
3D disalbe Red flashing 4 times 4

PAIRING ISSUES

• The earphones and device will need to be within 1 m (3 feet) from each other and are sufficiently charged.

• Verify that your host device Bluetooth is ON and searching for Bluetooth devices.

• Verify that earphones are not connected to another device. If LED lights on the earphone are steadily flashing blue, that indicates the earphones are paired to an existing device. (See HOW TO/ LED INDICATORS)

•  If you are pairing the earphones to your device again, the pairing information of the earphones remains on your device which may cause pairing issues. In these cases, delete the earphone information from your device and perform a FACTORY RESET (see instructions bellow), and then pair them again.

FACTORY RESET

Erases all Bluetooth profiles and reset back to factory specification.

  1. Long press LEFT button for 5 seconds to enter Pairing Mode.
  2. Press LEFT button 2 times and listen for 2 beeps.

RE-SYNCING LEFT AND RIGHT EARPHONES

In cases where your RIGHT earphone does not automatically pair to the LEFT (master) earphone.

  1. Long press LEFT button for 5 seconds to enter Pairing Mode. Listen for voice prompts and look for red and blue flashing LEDs.
  2. Long press RIGHT button for 10 seconds. Listen for 2 beeps and look for red and blue flashing LEDs.
  3. Press LEFT button 3 times.
  4. Press LEFT button 3 times, again.
  5. Listen for voice prompt and look for 3 flashing blue LEDs for a successful pairing.

LOW SOUND LEVEL

Android and non-iOS devices: Turn up the volume on the earphones AND on your host device. The volume controls are independent of each other when listening to music/media.

For Hands-free volume is controlled by the host device, increase the volume on your host device.

Earwax: Overtime earwax may build up in your earphones which can cause for low sound. To remove the earwax build up, remove the silicone tip from the earphones and slowly deep just the tip of the speaker with the mesh into rubbing alcohol to dissolve the earwax and repeat until all the earwax has been removed (DO NOT FULLY SUBMERGE THE EARPHONE).

EARPHONE(S) NOT CHARGING

If your MUSE 5 earphones are not charging try these simple troubleshooting steps:

  1. Inspect the copper contact found on the earphones and charging case. If found dirty, please use a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol to clean the contacts.
  2. When inserting into the charging case, ensure that the earphones are inserted all the way into the case.
  3. Look for a red flashing light which indicates the earphones are charging.
  4. Inspect the microUSB port and insert the microUSB charging cable into the charging case and power supply. Look for the earphone charging indicator and see if it is active.
  5. It will take approximately 2 hours to fully charge the MUSE 5 from when it is completely drained. Once fully charged the indicators on the earphones and charging case will turn off automatically.\

VIDEO DELAYS/LATENCY

Although the Muse 5 are mainly designed for listening to music, it is compatible with certain iOS and Android apps for watching videos. We use the latest CSR technology and aptX codec in our earphones, however, in True Wireless stereo earphones data has to be transmitted to each earphone simultaneously instead of just once like traditional Bluetooth earbuds. This can cause latency during video playback on devices and apps.

To minimize the latency when watching a video, we ask you to lower the bit rate of the audio if possible, move the host device closer to the LEFT earphone so to reduce any environmental interference between the devices, and lastly by disabling the ERATOSURROUND it may improve the latency when viewing videos.
