Mobile 14-channel EEG Headset EPOC X
With the award-winning Emotiv Epoc X 14-Channel EEG, you can explore your brain. You get professional brain data thanks to the advanced brain-computer interface application. The Pro license gives you high-quality EEG raw data. Conduct mental health, performance metrics, or facial expressions with a quick and easy-to-use design.
With this headset you can also do mental training at the highest level and accurately capture emotions. You can then model these optimally by testing their emotional impact. This makes the Epoc+ ideal for NLP trainings.

Setting up the headset
First Charge your headset
During charging, the headset should be off and not worn. Full charging takes about 4 hours.
Second Moisten the sensors
Now that the headset is fully charged, moisten the sensors. Moisten the felt cushions with the included moisture pack. The felt pads must be completely saturated with saline for good contact. Keep the large white moisture pad on the top cover of the moisture pack dry. This helps to dry the felt pads when not in use and reduces oxidation. Note: Fill with standard saline solution for multipurpose contact lenses.
Third Install the sensors
Remove the sensor units with the felt glides from the moisture pack and insert them into the black plastic headset arms. Carefully turn it a quarter turn clockwise until you feel a click. Be careful not to turn the sensors by force. The sensor units should be stored in the Moisture Pack when not in use.
Fourth Attaching the headset
Slide the headset upside down with both hands. WARNING: DO NOT RANGE THE HEADSET. It should slide on the head. The reference sensors have a black rubber cover. Position the sensors directly behind each earlobe on the bone. Correct placement of the reference sensors is critical to proper operation. The two front sensors should be about the hairline or about 3 fingers wide over the eyebrows. Pair your headset via Bluetooth or USB. Hold the two reference sensors (just above and behind your ears) for about 20 seconds.
The following software is compatible with the Emotiv EPOC X
Integrated software solution for neuroscientific research and teaching
View real-time display of EMOTIV headset data streams, including raw EEG, performance measurement data (0.1 Hz), motion data, data packet capture and loss, and contact quality. Save and replay your recordings in our secure cloud storage or export them for analysis.
Define timed markers and insert them into the data stream, including buttons on the screen and defined events for the serial port. Markers are stored in the EEG data files and can be viewed in real time and in Playback mode.
Customize and display frequency data for live or recorded data with automatic FFT and power band diagrams. Get results without having to export your data.
Our brain-computer interface flagship software designed for Insight and EPOC + headsets, available for free on Mac and Windows
With EMOTIV you can control machines with your mind. Throws events through thoughts with our detection of mental commands. Optimize applications in real time to respond to your cognitive status with our performance metrics.
With EmotivBCI, you can train multiple mental commands and view your real-time performance metrics. You can also view the facial expression and motion sensor data streams from your headset to enhance your Brain Computer Interface (BCI) application.
Training feedback leads you to creating strong profiles and unlimited profiles allow you to try out different strategies or create profiles for different applications. Test your profiles by moving a cube with your mind or controlling the expressions of an avatar in the app.
Main feature of MyEMOTIV is to detect Performance Metrics which are also available in both EmotivBCI and EmotivPRO application.
You can get the EmotivBCI software in our shop

Help, I can not set the signal quality to green!
For EPOC X, do the following:
Make sure the headset has been fully charged overnight.
Saturate the white felt sensors with saline. The felts must be moderately to strongly saturated with saline solution. Please ensure that no excess saline solution runs over the arms and reaches the electronics.
Make sure the sensors are installed properly.
You need to make sure the sensors touch your head. Replace the headset to make sure the sensors hit the head with some tension - this works for all sensors. If you continue to experience problems, go to step 5.
Check the sensor. Make sure the gold plate is present and the center of the sensor dome is clean. Make sure the socket is clean too, especially on the front of the golden fingers. Make sure that no oxidation (green residue) has formed to prevent the sensor from locking properly.
Firmly press the felt pad into the sensor while it is connected to the headset (support the back of the sensor to make sure the headset will not be damaged).
Alternatively, you can also pick up the sensor, place your thumb on the back of the golden dome, and push in the felt pad with your index finger. It should not protrude more than 3 mm. Satisfy again and try again. If you continue to experience problems, go to step 6.
Replace the sensor with a working one. If the problem shifts, it's on the sensor and not on the socket.
Is the headset small enough for kids?
The Emotiv Insight, the Epoc X and the Emotiv EPOC + can be worn by children over the age of six. For the Emotiv Flex you have to place a special order, which we can customize for your desired size. Simply contact us via email or telephone.
Can I wear the headset while lying down?
Most people with different types of paralysis can use EPOC X in some way. If the user needs a headrest, there may be a problem with the headband on the back. However, the headset can usually be placed to bypass the support, or it can also be placed backwards if needed. Mental commands continue to work in this orientation, while some facial expressions are retained, others can be retrained, and some are lost with the headset reversed. The excitement continues, but it is less likely that the other detections of performance and emotional state will work properly with a reversed headset, although they will not be completely lost.
Can the EPOC X Emoticon be used as a full-fledged assistive device for wheelchair control, home automation or mental typing?
There are many people who develop support systems, wheelchair and robot controls, home automation systems, etc., and there is no reason why paralyzed users should not use these systems - but make sure they are safe! The level of control is more than sufficient for successful use in many settings, but be careful. Any critical function controlled by the neuroheadset must have an independent kill operation that the user can reliably invoke to put the system into a safe state.
