  • Page 24: How To Insert Your Ear Mould

    How to insert your ear mould Make sure that your hearing instrument is turned off. The battery compartment must be opened up to the stop. Grip the ear mould between your thumb and index finger and place the tip carefully into your auditory canal.
  • Page 25 Tip: Practice inserting and removing your hearing instruments correctly. One easy way to practice is to sit down at a table. Place a mirror in front of you and prop your elbows on the table so you can guide your hands easily and safely.
  • Page 26: Handling Batteries

    Handling batteries So-called zinc-air batteries are used today almost exclusively in hearing instruments to minimize environmental damage. These batteries require oxygen for operation, which they absorb from the air. The battery is activated as soon as the protective foil is pulled off and is used up even if you do not use your hearing instrument.
  • Page 27: Notes For Cleaning And Care

    Notes for cleaning and care Ear wax accumulates on your ear mould. This can lead to inflammation in your auditory canal if the instruments are not cleaned regularly. Therefore: It is essential to detach the ear mould from your behind- the-ear instrument and place it in a cleaning bath for at least 15 minutes.
  • Page 28 Two more tips: You should place your hearing instruments in a “dry bag“ with a special moisture-attracting capsule overnight. The drying capsule draws damaging moisture out of the instruments. Your hearing instrument specialist stocks the special care sets and dry bags you need to maintain your hearing instruments and keep them in good condition.
  • Page 29: The Best Way To Handle Your Hearing Instruments

    The best way to handle your hearing instruments Your new hearing instruments are highly sensitive instruments. This naturally requires some care in their handling. They should then always give you good service. Caution! As with all electrical, non gas-encapsulated instruments, the hearing instruments must not be operated in explosion-endangered rooms.

  • Page 31: Some Useful Tips

  • Page 32: Hearing Training Made Easy

    Hearing training made easy Hearing instruments reproduce an abundance of sounds which frequently haven’t been experienced for many years. Every person reacts differently the first time he or she wears a hearing instrument. The familiarisation phase therefore differs from person to person. There are people who are quite happy to wear their hearing instruments the whole day long right from the start.
  • Page 33 3rd step Become familiar with your own voice You’ve already made remarkable progress! You’ve become much more familiar with the sounds in your daily environment. As an exercise read out aloud and concentrate on your own voice. 4th step Learn to understand the voices of others Wear the instrument when you speak with someone in your family.
  • Page 34 7th step Telephoning with your hearing instrument You can telephone in the “normal“ M position. Set the switch on the hearing instrument to T if you have difficulties in understanding. Place the telephone receiver behind your external ear against the hearing instrument and find the most favorable and loudest transmission.
