IMPORTANT NOTE: Before Neuropriming, please make sure that your headset's firmware version is up-to-date. To learn how to check for & install the latest firmware update, click here.
Before beginning a Neuropriming session with Halo Sport 2, you'll need to establish good contact between the headset and your head. The video below describes the basic steps needed to get good contact.
For more detailed instructions, we recommend reading pages 8-12 of the Halo Sport 2 Owner's Guide.
Here's an overview of the steps needed to get good contact:
- Thoroughly wet your Primer band. Remove the Primer band from the headset and soak the band’s foam tips (nibs) by gently pressing them while you run it under running water for about a minute, until they are very wet and dark gray. You can also use a shallow plate and gently press the primer nibs into the water until they are fully saturated.
- Carefully insert the Primer band into your headset. Using your thumb and pointer finger, pinch the Primer band from the textured circles on the back. While pinching, insert the Primer band by lining up the green arrow on the back of it with the matching recessed arrow on your headset. Press the band into place and check to make sure that the alignment lines are lined up.
Place the headset on your head. Spread the headset wide and place it directly over the top of your head so that the Primer band’s nibs are the first thing to make contact with your head.
Wiggle the Primer band’s nibs down through your hair. You’ll want to make sure that the nibs are getting the best possible contact with your skin.
Tighten the headset down on your head by contracting the sides of the headset. It should be snug, but comfortable.
As you adjust the headset, the “Contact strength” percentage on the “Adjust your headset” screen will indicate how close you are to getting good contact. If the contact strength is changing but not quite 100%, try adding more water to your Primer nibs. If the contact strength is stuck at 0%, check to make sure that your Primer band is installed correctly (step 2 above).
Note: If your Neuropriming session pauses due to lost contact, your Neuropriming session will automatically resume once you re-establish good contact.
