How to

Insert an in-the-ear
hearing aid

  • 1. Hold the hearing aid with the coloured dot face up. Place the tip of the hearing aid in your ear canal.

  • 2. Gently pull your ear outwards and push the hearing hearing aid into the ear canal, twisting slightly if necessary. Follow the natural contour of the ear canal.

Inserting an IIC (invisible-in-the-canal) hearing aid

Since IIC hearing aids are much smaller and placed deeper in the ear canal, they require a slightly different technique to insert.
Watch how to do it:

Identify the left/right hearing aid

It is important to distinguish between the left and the right hearing aid as they might be shaped and programmed differently.

A BLUE shell, text or dot identifies the LEFT instrument.

A RED shell, text or dot identifies the RIGHT instrument.
