Connecting the Versus Headset to your iPad/iPhone

This video demonstrates how to connect your Versus headset to your iPad.
Make sure bluetooth is enabled on your ipad before starting the process. This can easily be checked by dragging a finger up from the bottom of the iPad screen, and making sure the Bluetooth icon is enabled, or bright white.

The Versus headset utilizes Bluetooth LE and pairs with your iDevice within the Versus app (not through iOS settings) 


To connect the headset to your iPad:
 
  • Launch Versus on your iPad

  • Select NeuroAwareness (or another training game)

  • Tap 'Start', which will begin the Headset Configuration process

  • Power On your headset by pressing the Power Button for 2 seconds

  • Tap Continue on your iPad

  • Select your headset from the table (It will usually be the only headset listed)

  • You will see a green circle animate, eventually showing a green checkmark

  • Your headset will now be configured and connected for your iPad

  • ​This process will be repeated within each training app you use



To connect the headset to your iPhone:
 
  • Launch Versus on your iPhone and login

  • Tap the Menu icon (top left area of the screen)

  • Tap 'Warm Ups', select 'Airflow'

  • Power On your headset by pressing the Power Button for 2 seconds

  • Tap Continue on your iPhone

  • Select your headset from the table (It will usually be the only headset listed)

  • You will see a green circle animate, eventually showing a green checkmark

  • ​Your headset will now be configured and connected for your iPhone

  • ​This process will be repeated within each training app you use



 

Plugging in the charging cable

 
  • Using the supplied micro usb charger, find the usb port below the Power button.

  • When plugging in the cable, orient the larger flat side away from the headset.

  • When fully charged, the power button will light up Solid Green.

  • A full charge will take around 3 hrs, and will provide at least 5 hrs of use.

  • A 30 min charge will provide enough power to complete a 20 min training session.

 


Cleaning the headset

The sensor arms, body and ear pads of the Versus headset are best cleaned with a dry or slightly moist microfiber cloth. The green fabric that covers the sensor arms may discolor over time, this is expected and may occur more frequently with use and exposure to the sun or other outdoor elements.

What types of cleaners can I use?
We recommend using a microfiber cloth with a small amount of warm water applied to it. If there is buildup on the sensors or if a deeper clean is desired, a 50% alcohol solution can be used in place of warm water. Only a very small amount of water or alcohol is needed, using too much of any substance can interfere with the headsets functionality.


How often should I clean the headset?
The sensors can be wiped/cleaned after each use if shared between multiple users. For single user headsets, cleaning less frequently will help the headset to attain a connection faster, but cleaning can occur after each training session if desired.


How do I clean the Sensors?
Using a dry microfiber cloth, gently wipe away any excess Sensor Conditioner on the sensors. If large amounts of Sensor Conditioner are present, apply a small amount of warm water or a 50% alcohol solution to the cloth, and gently wipe the tips of each sensor.


Do I clean the Ear Clip?
Yes. The ear clip is vital to maintaining a stable connection. Clean the ear clip whenever cleaning the sensors.

How do I clean the Ear Clip?
The Ear Clip can be wiped off using a dry microfiber cloth, or one moistened with warm water, or 50% alcohol. If a large accumulation of Sensor Conditioner or debris is found on the ear clip, ensure this build up is removed prior to training.




 

Will it ruin my headset if I share it with friends or family?

Not at all! The headset is designed to conform to almost any shape of head, and it will automatically configure itself to new users. It may take a little bit of time to get great sensor readings on a new user, but it won't interfere with any training readings. Feel free to share the benefits of this method with people in your life. Be aware that any training done under your profile will impact your Training statistics and NeuroPoints.

 

Can I move or talk while I train?

While training make sure to limit any body movement or conversations, as it may induce inaccurate sensor readings or data. Until you become accustomed to wearing the headset, and familiar with the input for the games, it is best to try and limit your exposure to loud/distracting sounds or environments. This means it may be best to start out your training in a quiet room alone. Eventually you will want to train with the same type of stimuli that you encounter when playing your sport.

 

How long does the Versus Headset battery last?

With normal training use, the headset battery will provide 5 hours of training time, and will fully recharge in 3 hrs. To get the most from your headset's battery, fully charge the headset, and then let the battery fully discharge before charging again. The charging rate will allow you to get 2 hrs of play time from a 60 minute charge.


 

Can I charge my headset while I train?

The headset cannot be used while charging at this time. Any extra electrical interference can cause false sensor readings, so it is best to charge before playing.
