Headset with microphone

Headsets are available in each of the HCC Campus Libraries.

*Headsets are available to current students only. Place a hold on a headset in advance of your trip to the library to make sure that one is available for you.

If you have any questions about the headset reservation/hold process, please contact your campus library for assistance.

Using the Headsets from the HCC Library

The library now has several models of headsets with microphones. One model connects to your device via USB; one model connects to your device via mini-plug.

Using the headset is generally the same regardless of the model. Below are some steps:

Connect the headset to your computer.



When powered on, the hotspot will show the battery level and the signal strength in the small screen. (If the battery level is low, use the enclosed charging cable to charge and power the hotspot.)

Signal strength and power level on device screen

Navigate between informational screens on the hotspot by pushing the power button. Each push will show a different screen.

Information screen on device

This screen simply shows the billing cycle date for the device. It does not impact the student's ability to use the device.

Press the power button to display the Wifi name. This will be the name of the Wifi Network that you will select on your device in order to access the Internet.
