low battery indicator
Your hearing care professional can set your hearing instrument to give an acoustical indica-
tion when the battery is reaching its end of life. The hearing instrument will reduce amplifica-
tion and emit a melody if battery power gets too low. This signal will recur every 5 minutes for
VE60/70/80 models, and every 15 minutes for MG90 model, until the hearing instrument auto-
matically switches off. It is recommended that you keep spare batteries on hand.
Inserting/Removing hearing instruments
Insertion (custom earmolds)
1. Hold the earmold between your thumb and index finger and position its
sound outlet in your ear canal.
2. Slide the earmold all the way into your ear with a gentle, twisting move-
3. Turn the top part of the earmold gently backwards and forwards so that it
tucks behind the fold of skin above your ear canal.
4. Move the earmold up and down and gently press to ensure it is positioned
correctly in the ear. Opening and closing your mouth can ease insertion.
5. Make sure the hearing instrument is seated behind the ear.
By experimenting, an easier method may be discovered. With proper insertion,
hearing instruments should fit snugly but comfortably. If hearing instruments cause irritation
of the ears, contact your hearing care professional. Never attempt to modify the shape of the
hearing instrument, earmolds, or tubing yourself.
Tip: It may be helpful to pull your ear up and outward with your opposite hand during
1. Hold the thin tube where it bends, and gently push the dome into the ear canal. Push the
dome far enough into the ear canal so that the thin tube lies flush with the head.
2. It is important that the tube and the dome fit correctly into your ear.
3. When the dome is placed correctly, you should not be able to see the thin tube sticking out
when facing a mirror.
Note: You should never
attempt to bend or modify
the shape of the thin tube.
