Dry Electrode EEG Headset

The DSI-7 is a research-grade wireless dry electrode EEG headset designed for ultra-rapid application of 7 sensors at locations corresponding to the 10-20 International System. Its main features include:

  • Self-donned and ready to record EEG in under 1 minute
  • Comfortable for wearing continuously over 8 hours
  • Portable design suitable for light ambulation in office or lab environment
  • 7 sensors positioned at the F3, F4, C3, C4, Pz, P3, P4 locations of the 10-20
  • International System
  • Linked-Ears ear clip mounted active sensors
  • Continuous impedance monitoring
  • Bluetooth wireless transmission with sampling at 300 Hz
  • Rechargeable Li-ion batteries allow continuous operation
  • 4-bit digital trigger input
  • Adjustable to fit a wide range of head sizes
  • Customizable sensor locations (contact us for custom requests)
  • * The DSI-7 replaces the DSI-6 prototype system (most information about DSI-6 and tutorial videos are applicable to DSI-7)

Child-Sized Version: DSI-7-C

The DSI-7’s practicality, robustness to motion artefacts, high signal quality, and unsurpassed comfort beckoned for a version suitable for children.

And, thus, by popular demand, we have developed a smaller version of our DSI-7: The DSI-7-C, which is designed to comfortably and accurately position the dry sensors on heads 48-54 cm in circumference, thus fitting >90% of male children 3-7 years of age, and >90% of females 4-9 years old. (The DSI-7 optimally fits 54-62cm)

This unit is thus an excellent complement to a DSI-7 or can be purchased separately, as the child-sized version is a stand-alone unit, and includes its own integrated amplifiers, digitizers, and 7 sensors on the head at the International 10/20 System locations, as well as 2 ear clips.


The DSI-7’s practicality, portability, and high signal quality open the door to taking numerous applications that require rapid and non-intrusive EEG recording. Such applications include:

  • Neurofeedback
  • Neuroergonomics
  • Neuroeconomics / Neuromarketing
  • Augmented Cognition
  • Brain-Computer Interfaces
  • Biometrics
  • Cognitive Stress or Workload Monitoring
  • Psychological Research
  • Sports Peak Performance Training
