Welcome You have chosen a Siemens hearing instrument, a reliable partner to accompany you through everyday life. Like everything new, it will take you a little while to become familiar with it. This document, along with support from your Hearing Care Professional, will help you.
Your hearing instruments Getting to know your hearing instruments It is recommended to familiarize yourself with your new hearing instruments. With the instruments in your hand try using the controls and note their location on the instrument. This will make it easier for you to feel and press the controls while wearing the hearing instruments.
Controls With the controls you can, for example, adjust the volume or switch hearing programs. Your hearing instruments either have a push button or a rocker switch – or no control at all. The Hearing Care Professional has assigned your desired functions to the controls.

Features Power-on delay enables whistle-free insertion of hearing instruments. Read more in section "Turning on and off". e2e wireless enables simultaneous control of both hearing instruments.
Batteries When the battery is low the sound becomes weaker or you will hear an alert signal. It depends on the battery type how long you have until you have to replace or recharge the battery. Replacing non-rechargeable batteries Remove empty batteries immediately and dispose of according to local regulations.
Inserting: Remove the protective film from the new bat- tery. Insert the battery with the "+" symbol facing up (refer to the picture). Carefully close the battery compartment. If you feel resistance, the battery is not inserted correctly. Do not attempt to close the battery compartment by force.
Daily use Turning on and off You have several options to turn your hearing instru- ments on or off. Via battery compartment: Turning on: Close the battery compartment. The default volume and hearing program are set. Turning off: Open the battery compartment. After charging: Turning on: Take the instruments out of the charger.
Via remote control: Follow the instructions in the remote control's user guide. After turning on, the previously used volume and hearing program are set. When wearing the hearing instruments, an ■ optional signal can indicate when an instrument is turned on or off. Remove the batteries if the hearing instruments ■...
Inserting Your hearing instruments have been fine-tuned for your right and left ear. Colored markers indicate the side: red marker = right ear ■ blue marker = left ear ■ To insert the hearing instrument: Hold the receiver cable at the bend. Carefully push the ear piece in the ear canal.
Insert the right hearing instrument with the ■ right hand and the left hearing instrument with the left hand. If you have problems inserting the ear piece, ■ use the other hand to gently pull your earlobe downwards. This opens the ear canal and eases insertion of the ear piece.
Removing Lift the hearing instrument and slide it over the top of your ear. If your hearing instrument is equipped with a custom shell or a Click Mold, remove it by pulling the small removal cord toward the back of your head. For all other ear pieces: Grip the receiver in the ear canal with two fingers and pull it carefully out.
Adjusting the volume Your hearing instruments automatically adjust the volume to the listening situation. If you prefer manual volume adjustment, press the push button or the rocker switch, or use a remote con- trol. Refer to section "Controls" for your personal settings. An optional signal can indicate the volume change.
Changing the hearing program Hearing programs change the characteristics of the sound coming through the hearing instrument. They help you to select the optimal setup for every listening situation. An optional signal can indicate the change of the hearing program. To change the hearing program, press the push button or the rocker switch, or use a remote control.
Further adjustments (optional) The controls of your hearing instruments can also be used to change, for example, the sound balance or the tin- nitus noiser level. Sound balance allows you to adjust the bass and treble to your preferences. Refer to section "Controls" for your personal settings. Using two hearing instruments Very rarely does hearing loss occur in only one ear, therefore the use of two instruments ensures that you are...
On the phone When you are on the phone, hold the telephone receiver slightly above your ear. The hearing instrument and telephone receiver have to be aligned. Turn the receiver slightly so that the ear is not completely covered. Telephone program You may prefer a certain volume when using the phone.
Not all telephones produce a magnetic field strong enough to activate the AutoPhone function. In this case, you can use the Siemens AutoPhone magnet, which is available as an accessory, and attach it to the telephone receiver.
WARNING Risk of affecting life support systems! Use a magnet only when it is a safe distance away from life support systems, such as pace- makers or magnetic valves. For example, the safe distance between pacemaker and magnet should be at least 10 cm (4 inches). On the phone...
Audio induction loops Many telephones as well as public places like theatres offer the audio signal (music and speech) via an audio induction loop. With this system, your hearing instru- ments can directly receive the desired signal – without distracting noise in the environment. You can usually recognize audio induction loop systems by certain signs.
Maintenance and care Siemens hearing instruments are so robust that they will function reliably for years. It is, however, important that you take care of your instruments and observe a few basic rules, which will soon become habit. Cleaning For hygiene reasons and to maintain functionality, clean your hearing instruments daily.
Drying Dry your hearing instruments overnight. Ask your Hearing Care Professional for recommended drying products. Storage During longer periods of non-use, store your hearing instruments with open battery compartment (and bat- teries removed) in a drying system in order to prevent the penetration of moisture.
Exchanging Click Domes If you have problems removing the old Click Dome, use the packaging of the Click Domes or the removal tool: The removal tool is available as an accessory. To exchange Click Domes: Follow the instructions on the packing of the Click Domes or the instructions delivered with the removal tool.
