In The Ear (ITE) Hearing Aid Maintenance

Here you can find everything you need related to maintenance for your ITE hearing aids. Here you can find step-by-step guides in looking after your in-the-ear hearing aid.

TURNING YOUR HEARING AIDS ON/OFF 
  • To turn the hearing aid on, close the battery cover and push it up-wards. The hearing aid will play a sound signal to indicate that it is on, unless your hearing care professional has deactivated this function.
  • To turn off the hearing aid, push the battery cover downwards.
  • You can also cup the hearing aid in your hand to verify that it is turned on. If it's on, it will whistle.
  • Don't forget to turn off the hearing aid when it is not in use.  

Specific instructions may vary depending on the exact model of your hearing aid. Consult manual or give us a call if in doubt.

CHANGING YOUR HEARING AID BATTERIES
  • Make sure the battery is the right way round: the + on the battery should match the + on the battery compartment.
  • When you close the battery compartment, don’t force it shut. If the compartment sticks, it might be because the battery is in the wrong way round.
  • Check that the hearing aid is working properly after you have changed the battery.

Specific instructions may vary depending on the exact model of your hearing aid. Consult your user instructions or give us a call if in doubt.

CHANGING YOUR FILTERS IN YOUR EAR MOULDS

The Widex wax guard helps to protect the hearing aid against earwax. Always use Widex wax guards with your hearing aid. Otherwise the guarantee for your hearing aid will be void. 

  • To change the wax guard insert the removal hook into the used wax guard keeping the holder at a right angle and then pulling the used wax guard straight out.
  • Insert the new wax guard into the opening of the sound outlet and press it gently.
  • Remember that the wax guard is for one-time use only and is not intended to be cleaned.
