NOTE
In addition to these user instructions, a separate user manual is
provided describing the various ear-set solutions available for
your hearing aid: “Ear-sets for Widex BTE hearing aids”.
WARNING
This booklet and the manual “Ear-sets for Widex BTE hearing
aids” contain important information and instructions. Read
these booklets carefully before you start using the hearing aid.
NOTE
Your hearing aid, ear-set and accessories may not look exactly
as illustrated in this booklet. We also reserve the right to make
any changes considered necessary.
5
Intended use
The hearing aids are intended as air conduction
amplification devices to be used in everyday listening
environments. The hearing aids may be provided with
the Zen program intended to provide a relaxing sound
background (i.e. music/noise source) for adults who
desire to listen to such a background in quiet.
Indications for use
The devices are indicated for individuals with a range of
hearing loss severity from minimal (10 dB HL) to severe
(90 dB HL) and all hearing loss configurations.
They are to be programmed by licensed hearing care
professionals (audiologists, hearing aid specialists, otolaryngologists) who are trained in hearing ­(re)habilitation.
Description of device
Your hearing aid is used with an ear-set which consists
of a tube and an ear-tip or earmould. The hearing aid
uses a proprietary wireless technology, WidexLink, to
enable communication between the left and the right
hearing aid, as well as between the hearing aids and the
DEX accessories.
Your hearing aid may be provided with a listening program called Zen. It makes musical tones (and sometimes a rushing noise) in the background. These sounds
are shaped according to your hearing loss.
6
Acoustic indicators
The hearing aid may be set to produce a signal to indicate the use of certain functions. The signal may be a
spoken message or tones. The signal can also be deactivated.

The battery
We recommend zinc-air batteries. Use a size 13 battery
for the hearing aid.
To obtain replacement batteries, please consult your
hearing care professional. It is important to take note of
the expiry date and the recommendations on the battery pack regarding disposal of used batteries.
Inserting the battery
Before inserting a new battery into the
hearing aid, remember to remove the adhesive tab. Once the tab has been removed,
the battery will start functioning after a few
seconds.
CAUTION
Do not use batteries if there is a sticky residue from the tab or
other unwanted substance, as this can cause the hearing aid to
malfunction.
Use the nail grip to gently swing the
battery drawer open.
8
Place the battery in the drawer, so that the plus (+) sign
on the battery faces upward. You can use the battery
magnet provided to steer the battery into place.
+
If the battery drawer does not close easily, the battery
is incorrectly inserted.
When changing battery, it is a good idea to hold the
hearing aid over a table.
The hearing aid may be provided with a special battery
drawer, helping to secure the battery in the drawer. This
type of drawer can be a good choice if the hearing aid
is worn by a child.
9
Low battery indication
An acoustic indicator will sound when the battery is
nearly exhausted, unless this function has been disabled (see page 7). We recommend that you always
have a spare battery with you.
WARNING
Never leave an exhausted battery in the hearing aid. Exhausted
batteries may leak, damaging the hearing aid.
WARNING
Your hearing aid may stop functioning, for instance if the
­battery is exhausted. You should be aware of this possibility, in
particular when you are in traffic or are otherwise dependent
on warning signals.
10
Turning the hearing aid on and off
The battery drawer of the hearing aid also functions as
the on/off switch.
Push the switch upwards to turn on the
hearing aid. An acoustic indicator will indicate that the hearing aid has been switched
on unless this function has been disabled.
Push the switch downwards to turn off the
hearing aid.
The word “OFF” is clearly visible on the
switch when the hearing aid is turned off.
Note: Another way to verify that the hearing aid is turned on is to cup it in your hand. If it is on, it will whistle.
Please remember to turn off the hearing aid when it is
not in use. Remove the battery if the hearing aid will not
be used for several days.
11
Right/left identification
If you wear hearing aids on both
ears, the hearing aids can be provided with coloured marks (red mark
= right and blue mark = left).
The arrow shows the position of the
identification mark.
12
Positioning the hearing aid
Insert the earpiece in the ear canal while holding the
lower part of the tube. It may help to pull the outer ear
backwards and upwards with the opposite hand.
Place the hearing aid behind the ear, so that the hearing aid and tube rest comfortably on the ear, close to
your head.
The illustrations show an open ear-tip. For further information on ear-tip/earmould types, anchors and procedures, see the separate ear-set user manual provided.
If the ear-set does not fit or sit properly, causing discomfort, irritation, redness or the like, contact your
hearing care professional.
13
Removing the hearing aid
Remove the hearing aid from its position behind the
ear.
Carefully pull the earpiece out of the ear canal, while
holding the lower part of the tube. If the earpiece is
provided with an extraction cord, take hold of this and
carefully pull the ear-tip out of the ear canal.
14
Volume adjustment
The hearing aid volume is adjusted automatically in
accordance with your sound environment.
Your hearing aid may furthermore
be provided with a volume control,
shaped like a small lever.
Push the lever upward to gradually
raise the volume.
Push the lever downwards to gradually
lower the volume.
In the default setting, any volume adjustment will affect
both hearing aids.
To alter the increments in which the volume is increased
or decreased, consult your hearing care professional.
Each time you operate the volume control, you will
hear a beep-tone unless this function has been disabled. When the maximum or minimum adjustment level
is reached, a steady tone will sound.
15
WARNING
If the volume in the hearing aid is generally too loud or too
weak, or the reproduced sounds are distorted, or if you would
like any further information, consult your hearing care professional.
To turn off the sound completely
• Keep pressing the volume control lever downwards
until the steady tone has sounded
To turn the sound on again
• Press the lever upwards or
• Change listening program
Any adjustment of the volume setting will be cancelled when your hearing aid is turned off, or when you
change program.
If you wish to have the volume control disabled, please
consult your hearing care professional.
16
Lost partner alarm
(Note: Only applicable if this feature is available and
has been activated by your hearing care professional.)
If one of your hearing aids falls off your ear, and/or the
battery is exhausted, a tone signal and a spoken message will sound two times in the other hearing aid.

If your needs change over time, the combination of listening programs can be altered.
CAUTION
When selecting Phone+ as listening program, please remember
that there are situations in which it is particularly important to
be able to hear the surrounding sounds.
18
Zen program
Your hearing aid may be provided with a unique optional
listening program called Zen. It makes musical tones
(and sometimes a rushing noise) in the background.
The Zen program may be used alone (without amplification) in quiet when you are not required to hear surrounding sounds. Or, it may be used with amplification
so that both the surrounding sounds and the generated
sounds (fractal tones and noise) are heard together.
CAUTION
Use of the different Zen programs may interfere with hearing
surrounding sounds including speech. The programs should
not be used when hearing such sounds is important. Switch the
hearing aid to a non-Zen program in those situations.
CAUTION
If you perceive a decrease in loudness, tolerance of sounds,
speech not as clear, or worsening tinnitus, contact your hearing
care professional.
19
Benefits
The Zen program may provide a relaxing listening
background for some people. When the Zen program
is used in a tinnitus management program, its wearer
may experience some relief from tinnitus.
Indications for use
The Zen program is intended to provide a relaxing
sound background (i.e., music/noise source) for adults
who desire to listen to such a background in quiet. It
may be used as a sound therapy tool in a tinnitus treatment program that is prescribed by a hearing care professional (audiologists, hearing aid specialists, otolaryngologists) who is trained in tinnitus management.
Directions for use
Because of the unique ways in which Zen is programmed in your hearing aid, please follow the recommendations of your hearing care professionals as to
how to use the program, when to use the program and/
or how long to use the program.
20
Switching between the listening
programs

CARING FOR YOUR HEARING AID
The hearing aid is a valuable object and should be
treated with care. Here are some things you can do to
prolong the life of your hearing aid:
CAUTION
•Turn off your hearing aid when it is not in use. Remove the
battery if the hearing aid will not be used for several days.
•When the hearing aid is not in use, keep it in its case in a dry
location out of reach of children and pets.
•Do not expose the hearing aid to extreme temperatures or
high humidity. Make sure to dry the hearing aid thoroughly
after heavy perspiration such as that which may occur during
intense physical activity, e.g. playing sports.
•Avoid dropping your hearing aid – perform cleaning and battery changes while holding the hearing aid above a soft surface.
•Do not wear your hearing aid while in the shower or swimming, or when using a hair dryer, perfume, hair and body
sprays or gels such as suntanning lotions or creams.
32
WARNINGS
WARNING
Hearing aids and batteries can be dangerous if swal­lowed or
used improperly. Swallowing or ­improper use can result in
­severe injury or even f­ atalities. In case of ingestion, contact a
physician immediately.
•Keep hearing aids and their parts, accessories and batteries out of reach of children and anyone else who might swallow such items or otherwise cause injury to themselves. Do
not change batteries in front of them and do not let them see
where you keep your battery supply. Discard used batteries
carefully.
•Batteries are very small and can easily be mistaken for pills or
the like. Never put a battery or hearing aid in your mouth for
any reason as you may risk swallowing it.
•Clean and inspect your hearing aid after use to check that it is
intact. If the hearing aid or the ear-set breaks while in the ear
canal, contact your hearing care professional immediately. Do
not try to remove the parts yourself.
33
WARNING
•Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type or
recharged. Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.
•Never allow others to wear your hearing aid, as this could
cause permanent damage to their hear­ing.
•When selecting a listening program, please remember that
there are situations in which it is particularly important to be
able to hear the surrounding sounds (e.g. traffic, warning signals).
•The hearing aid is made of modern non-allergenic materials. Nonetheless, in rare cases skin irritation may occur. If you
notice skin irritation in or around your ear or ear canal, contact
your hearing care professional.
34
WARNING
•Please note that when using any type of hearing aid, you must
allow regular ventilation of the ear. If the ear is not adequately
ventilated, there may be a slightly increased risk of infection
or disease in the ear canal. We therefore recommend that you
remove the hearing aid and ear-set from your ear when you
go to bed, to allow the ear canal to be ventilated. If possible,
you should also remove your hearing aid and ear-set during
the day if there are any periods when you do not need them.
Make sure that you clean and inspect your hearing aid and
ear-set as required. If an ear infection or disease occurs, you
should seek medical attention and contact your hearing care
professional for advice on how to disinfect the various hearing
aid parts. Do not under any circumstances use alcohol, chlorine or similar substances for this purpose.
•Regular use of a de-humidifier is recommended to help avoid
malfunction of the hearing aid.
•Do not use Widex hearing aids in mines or other areas with
explosive gases.
•Do not wear your hearing aid during radiation, X-rays, MRIs,
CT or other medical treatments and scans. The emissions
from these procedures as well as from other types of radiation, such as that in a microwave oven, can damage your hearing aid and the hearing aid can become very hot. R
­ adiation
from, for example, room surveillance equipment, burglar
alarms and mobile phones is weaker and will not damage the
hearing aid, but may create audible interference.
35
WARNING
Interference with active Implants
•In order to show caution, we advise to follow the guidelines
recommended by manufacturers of defibrillators and pacemakers regarding use of mobile phones:
•If you wear an active implantable device keep the Wireless
Hearing Aids and Hearing Aid Accessories such as wireless
remote controls or communicators at least 15 cm away from
the implant.
•If you experience any interference, do not use the hearing aids
and contact the manufacturer of the implant. Please note that
interference can also be caused by power lines, electrostatic
discharge, airport metal detectors etc.
•If you have an active brain implant, please contact the manufacturer of the implant for risk evaluation.
If you have an implantable device, we advise to keep magnets*
at least 15 cm away from the implant. (*= can be specified as
Autophone magnet, hearing instrument case, magnet in a tool,
etc.)
36
CAUTION
•Your hearing aid has been tested for interference according
to international standards. Nevertheless, it is possible that
unforeseen interference may occur in the hearing aid due to
electromagnetic radiation from other products such as alarm
systems, room surveillance equipment and mobile phones.
•Although your hearing aid has been designed to comply with
the most stringent international electromagnetic compatibility standards, the possibility cannot be excluded that it may
cause interference with other equipment, such as medical
devices.
•Never try to open or repair the hearing aid yourself.
37
ADVICE
NOTE
•The hearing aid will not restore normal hearing and will not
prevent or improve a hearing loss resulting from organic
conditions. However, the hearing aid can help you to make
the best possible use of your remaining hearing ability. You
should also bear in mind that it can take time to get used to a
new hearing aid and new sounds.
•In most cases, using the hearing aid infrequently will not permit you to gain full benefit from it.
•The use of a hearing aid is only part of hearing habilitation
and may need to be supplemented by auditory training and
instruction in lipreading.
•The use of hearing aids increases the risk of accumulation of
earwax. Contact your physician/ENT doctor if you suspect
that a plug of earwax has accumulated in your ear. Earwax
may not only reduce your own hearing but also the effect of
the hearing aid considerably. It is a good idea to ask your physician to clean your ears a couple of times a year.
38
Adapting to your hearing aids
Congratulations for taking the first steps toward restoring your communication skills with the purchase of
state-of-the-art hearing aids from Widex.
Because many of the sounds you may now hear have
not been fully audible without hearing aids, we urge
you to take a few minutes to perform the following simple activities in the order listed. Do these first in quiet
settings, then try them in noisier surroundings.
Activity 1: First, listen to a friend or relative speak to
you with your eyes closed and your hearing aids off.
Now, put your hearing aids on and continue to listen.
Notice the difference? The purpose of this activity is not
to hear every word, but just to recognize the difference
in amplified speech from a familiar source.
Activity 2: Listen to your friend or relative speak to you
with your hearing aids on, but with your eyes closed.
Now continue to listen with your eyes open. The goal is
to demonstrate how helpful it is to receive information
from your eyes to supplement your ears.
Activity 3: Purchase two copies of today’s newspaper.
Ask a friend or relative to read a story aloud while you
read along with the same story. Alternatively, read it
aloud and listen to your own voice. It is also helpful to
watch captioned TV.
39
• We hear in our brain, not in our ears. It will take your
brain some time to fully adapt to the new sounds
you are hearing. It is not unusual, for example, to
hear certain sounds, such as your own footsteps, or
a newspaper rustling, or the refrigerator humming,
that people with normal hearing take for granted and
thus don’t consciously process. Be patient and allow
yourself a few weeks to adapt. Your brain will learn
to ignore them if they are not important. Of course,
if sounds are too loud or uncomfortable for you, contact your hearing care professional.
• Conversational speech has many redundant cues.
Worrying about a word you may have missed will
likely lead to additional missed words. Focus on the
essence of the conversation. It may help to ask someone you are comfortable with to subtly alert you
about the overall topic when listening in groups.
• Before going to a restaurant, call ahead and request
a seat away from the kitchen or bar area. Remember
that in noisy places, even normal hearing people may
struggle to hear.

Industry Canada Statement /
Déclaration d’industrie Canada
Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may
only operate using an antenna of a type and maximum (or
lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada.
To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the
antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that
necessary for successful communication.
This device complies with Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS
standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.

Conformément à la réglementation d’Industrie Canada, le
présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une antenne d’un
type et d’un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour
l’émetteur par Industrie Canada.
Dans le but de réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à
l’intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut choisir le type d’antenne
et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l’intensité nécessaire à
l’établissement d’une communication satisfaisante.
Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d’Industrie Canada
applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence.
L’exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes :
(1) l’appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et
(2) l’utilisateur de l’appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible d’en compromettre le fonctionnement.
