Getting started
On/Off function
1. When the battery door is closed, the hearing instrument
turns on, and the default program will be activ­ated.
2. To turn off the hearing instrument, open the battery door.
Use your fingernail to pull it open.
On
Off
Tip: Whenever the hearing instruments are not in use, remember to turn them off to avoid
unnecessary battery consumption.
SmartStart
Hearing instruments can be turned on once you have placed them on your ears. If you prefer to
turn them on just prior to placing them on your ear, your hearing care professional can activate
12
a function called SmartStart. This function will delay the time in which the hearing instruments
turn on by ten seconds after the battery compartment is closed. With SmartStart, a beep will
be heard for each second of the delay period.
Inserting/Replacing the battery
1. Open the battery door completely by using your fingernail.
2. Remove the used battery, if present. Insert the new battery with the
positive side in the correct position.
3. Always use new Zinc-Air batteries that have a minimum
remaining shelf life of 1 year.
4. Gently close the battery door.
Tip: Remove the batteries to prevent leakage when the hearing instruments are not in use
for an extended period of time.
13
Low battery indicator
Your hearing care professional can set your hearing instrument to give an acoustical indication
when the battery is reaching its end of life. The hearing instrument will reduce amplification and
emit a melody if battery power gets too low. This signal will recur every five minutes until the
hearing instrument automatically switches off. It is recommended that you keep spare batteries
on hand.
Low battery indicator (instruments paired with accessories only)
Active usage of the ReSound Unite accessories (Remote Control, Phone Clip and TV Streamer)
requires more battery power from the hearing instruments than when these are working on their
own meaning that battery life is highly dependent on the amount of wireless accessory usage.
When the battery in the hearing instrument has depleted to a level at which use of the ReSound
14
Unite TV and Phone Clip cannot be supported, the hearing instrument will play two sets of
descending tones. After this, your hearing instrument and ReSound Unite Remote Control will
continue to work as usual, but you will not be able to use your ReSound Unite TV and Phone
Clip. At some point the battery level will not support the remote control either and you will once
again hear the descending tones. The hearing instruments will continue to work as usual. Once
a new battery is inserted, full operation of the accessories will resume.
Sports lock
Sports lock will be applied or adjusted by your hearing care professional.
15
Inserting/Removing hearing instruments
Insertion (custom RIE moulds)
1. Hold the RIE mould between your thumb and index finger and position its
sound outlet in your ear canal.
2. Slide the RIE mould all the way into your ear with a gentle, twisting movement.
3. Move the RIE mould up and down and gently press to ensure it is positioned
correctly in the ear. Opening and closing your mouth can ease insertion.
4. 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, RIE moulds, or
tubing yourself.
Tip: It may be helpful to pull the top of your ear back with your opposite
16
hand during insertion to open the ear canal.
Insertion (domes)
1. Hold the receiver 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 receiver tube lies flush with the side of 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 receiver
tube sticking out when facing a mirror.
Note: You should never attempt to bend or modify the shape of the receiver tube.
Removal (RIE moulds)
17
1. Grasp the removal string and pull the RIE mould outward.
2. Consult your hearing care professional if you have difficulties removing the hearing
instrument.
Removal (domes)
1. Hold the receiver tube with your thumb and forefinger and pull the tube

removing the hearing instrument.
Program and Multi-Function buttons
If you have a hearing aid with a program button or
multi-function button, this will allow you to use up to
four different listening programs, each of them suit­
able for certain situations.
Your instrument has a fully automatic volume control.
Therefore, it should not be necessary to control the
volume manually.

Flight mode* (Alera 61 and 62 only)
When boarding a flight wireless functionality must be deactivated, as it is not allowed to radiate
radio signals during flights.
For devices with push button: It is possible to disable wireless operation by opening and closing
the battery compartment of the hearing instrument while at the same time pressing the push
button. When disabled manually, wireless operation may be re-enabled by opening and closing
the battery compartment normally, (i.e. without at the same time pressing the push button).
For devices without push button: It is possible to disable wireless operation by opening and
closing the battery door twice within 10 seconds. Repeat this procedure to enable wireless
again.
Telephone use
If your hearing instruments are fit with a receiver open dome or receiver tulip dome, you can
probably use the telephone as you normally would by holding it up to your ear canal opening.
If your hearing instruments are fit with a receiver power dome or RIE mould, finding the optimal
position for holding a telephone while using a hearing instrument may require practice for some
individuals, and one or more of the following suggestions may be helpful.
*Instruments paired with accessories only
24
25
1. Hold the telephone as you would normally.
2. Hold the telephone towards the top of the ear (closer to where the
microphones are located).
3. If whistling occurs, it may take a brief moment of holding the tele­
phone in the same position before the hearing instrument adapts
and reduces the feedback.
4.Any whistling may also be decreased by holding the telephone
slightly away from the ear.
5. Depending on your individual needs, your hearing care professional may activate a pro­
gramme specifically for telephone use.
26
Listen to radio or TV
When listening to the TV or the radio, start out by listening to news commentators since they
usually speak clearly, then try other programmes.
If you find it difficult to listen to TV or radio, your hearing care professional will be able to give you
advice on available accessories to enhance your listening capabilities for TV and radio.
Cellular phones
Your hearing instrument is designed to comply with the most stringent Standards of International
Electromagnetic Compatibility. However, not all cell phones are hearing instrument compatible.
The varying degree of disturbance can be due to the nature of your particular cellular phone or
of your wireless telephony service provider.
If you find it difficult to obtain a good result while using your cellular phone, your hearing care
professional will be able to give you advice on available accessories to enhance listening
capabilities.
27
PhoneNow
The PhoneNow function, allows your hearing instrument to automatically switch to your tele­
phone programme when a telephone receiver is raised to the ear. When the telephone receiver
is removed from the ear, the hearing instrument automatically returns to the previous listening
programme.
Placement of PhoneNow magnets
In order to place PhoneNow magnets properly:
1. Clean the telephone receiver thoroughly.
2. Hold the telephone vertically, in a position similar to when making
a telephone call.
3. Place the magnets just below the telephone receiver. If necessary, move the magnet to
another position to improve ease of use and comfort while speaking.
28
4. Use only recommended cleaning agent to clean the telephone prior to placing the magnet
on the phone.
PhoneNow usage
Telephones can be used in a normal manner. A short melody will indicate that the PhoneNow
feature has automatically switched the hearing instrument to your telephone programme.
Initially, you may need to move the telephone receiver slightly to find the best position for reliable
PhoneNow activation and good hearing on the telephone.
PhoneNow precautions
1. Keep magnets out of reach of pets, children and mentally challenged persons. If a magnet is
swallowed, please seek advice from a medical practitioner.
2. The magnet used to strengthen the magnetic field of a telephone receiver may affect
29
functionality of some medical devices or electronic systems. Always keep the magnet or
a telephone equipped with the magnet at least 30 cm (12”) away from pacemakers, credit
cards and other magnetically sensitive devices.
3.High distortion during dialing or phoning may mean that the magnet is not in the optimal
position relative to the telephone receiver. To avoid the issue, please move the magnet to
another place on the telephone receiver.
4. Only use magnets supplied by GN ReSound.
30
Telecoil (optional)
If equipped, a telecoil can be activated by your hearing care professional and accessed through
one of the additional programmes. A telecoil picks up a telephone’s magnetic signal and con­
verts it to sound. An optional telephone programme may help to improve speech understanding
on the telephone. When using a telecoil programme, the receiver of the telephone may need to
be held closer to the hearing instrument. The handset of the telephone may need to be moved
to slightly different positions in order to find the best reception.
Tele-loop systems
Many places, such as theatres, houses of worship, and schools are equipped with tele-loop
systems. When using a telecoil programme with tele-loop systems, sound is picked up directly
and may improve speech understanding. If there is no sound from the hearing instruments in
a tele-loop system and with a telecoil programme activated, the tele-loop system may not be
turned on or is not operating correctly. If a facility is not equipped with a tele-loop system, sitting
as close as possible to the front may be helpful.
31
Direct audio input (optional)
Use of direct audio input (DAI), which enables a direct connection of the hearing instruments to
items such as television, radio, and remote microphones, may increase speech understanding
for some individuals. The sound source is connected to the hearing instruments by a cable or
a wireless FM system to the audio boot. This accessory connects to the bottom of the hear­
ing instruments, and once properly clicked into place, the hearing instruments switch to DAI
automatically.
Connecting/Disconnecting audio boots

Care and maintenance
Proper handling
Your hearing instrument is protected by a layer of protective, hydrophobic nanocoat material.
However, please follow the following instructions to further prolong the durability of your hearing
instruments.
1. Never immerse hearing instruments in water or other liquids, as liquids may cause permanent
damage to the hearing instruments.
2. Avoid rough handling of hearing instruments or dropping them on hard surfaces or floors.
3. Do not leave hearing instruments in or near direct heat or sunlight, as excessive heat can
cause damage or deform the casing.
4. Hair spray, make-up, etc. may damage hearing instruments, and these should be removed
prior to the application of cosmetics.
Daily maintenance
It is important to keep your hearing instrument clean and dry. On a
daily basis, clean the hearing instruments using a soft cloth or tissue.
34
35
The receiver tube
The receiver tube comes in two different power levels:
NP
HP
NP (Normal Power) and HP (High Power). Depending on your hearing
loss you have either been fitted with the NP or the HP receiver type.
Please go to page 10 to see your selected type. The receiver tube
contains the wiring to the receiver which delivers the sound to the ear canal. It is important
that the receiver tube and the receiver dome/RIE mold fits correctly in your ear. If the
receiver tube or the receiver dome/RIE mould irritates your ear in any way and prevents you
from wearing your hear­ing instrument, please contact your hearing care pro­­fessional. You
should never attempt to modify the shape of the receiver tube yourself. The receiver tube and
the receiver dome/RIE mould should be cleaned regularly. Please see instructions in the next
section.
36
Cleaning the receiver tubes and domes
The receiver tube and the receiver dome should be cleaned regularly. Use a damp cloth to clean
the receiver tube and receiver dome on the outside. Do not use water when you are cleaning
the receiver tubes or the receiver domes. Please see instruction on page 30 or 31 for how to
change the wax guard filter.
Cleaning RIE moulds
1. Separate the mould from the receiver tube.
2. Clean the RIE mould using a mild soap, and rinse with
lukewarm water.
3. After cleaning, dry RIE moulds thoroughly and remove any

How to apply domes
It is recommended that your hearing care professional change domes, as incorrect dome re­
placement could result in injury.
ReSound tulip domes
Tulip domes are mounted in a similar manner to standard domes, but a few extra steps are
required. Tulip domes consist of two “petals”. It is important to note that the largest petal is the
outermost petal. To ensure this:
ReSound standard domes
1. Push the new dome over the
receiver.
1. Push the largest petal away from the receiver tube using a finger. This bends the petal
forward.
2. Make sure that the new dome is
is properly and securely mounted.
42

2. Then push the largest “petal” back, and it will be placed on top of the smaller petal.
43
General precautions
1. Do not leave hearing instruments in the sun, near an open fire, or in a hot, parked car.
2. Do not wear hearing instruments while showering, swimming, in heavy rain, or in a moist
atmosphere such as a steam bath or sauna.
3.Should the hearing instrument become moist, remove the battery and place the hearing
instrument in a closed container with a drying agent. Your hearing care professional can
provide options for drying containers or kits.
4. Remove the hearing instruments when applying items such as cosmetics, perfume, aftershave, hair spray, and suntan lotion.
5. When wireless function is activated, the device uses low-powered digitally coded
transmissions in order to communicate with other wireless devices. Although unlikely, nearby
electronic devices may be affected. In that case, move the hearing instrument away from the
affected electronic device.
44
6. When using wireless functionality and the devices are affected by electromagnetic
interference, move away from the source.
General warnings
1. Consult a hearing care professional if you discover a foreign object in your ear canal, if you
experience skin irritation, or if excessive ear wax accumulates with the use of the hearing
instrument.
2. Different types of radiation, from e.g. NMR, MRI, or CT scanners, may damage hearing
instruments. It is recommended not to wear hearing instruments during these or other similar
procedures. Other types of radiation, such as burglar alarms, room surveillance systems,
radio equipment, mobile telephones, contain less energy and will not damage hearing
instruments. However, they have the potential to momentarily affect the sound quality or
temporarily create strange sounds from hearing instruments.
45
3. Do not wear hearing instruments in mines, oil fields, or other explosive areas unless those
areas are certified for hearing instrument use.
9. Turn off your wireless functionality by using the flight mode in areas where radio frequency
emission is prohibited.
4. Do not allow others to use your hearing instruments. This may cause damage to the hearing
instruments or to the hearing of the other individual.
10. Do only connect ReSound hearing instruments to ReSound accessories intended and
qualified to be used with ReSound hearing instruments.
5. Due to a choking hazard, hearing instrument usage by children or mentally challenged
individuals should be supervised at all times.
11. For use of wireless functionality do only use ReSound Unite accessories. For further
guidance please refer to the user guide of the relevant ReSound Unite accessory.
6.Hearing instruments should be used only as prescribed by your hearing care professional.
Incorrect use may result in hearing loss.
7. Be careful when boarding flights to deactivate the wireless functionality.
8. Keep magnets out of reach of pets, children and mentally challenged persons. If a magnet
is swallowed, please seek advice from a medical practitioner.

Warranty and repairs
ReSound provides a warranty on hearing instruments in the event of defects in workmanship or
materials, as described in applicable warranty documentation.
In its service policy, ReSound pledges to secure functionality at least equivalent to the original
hearing instrument.
As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact initiative, ReSound is committed to
doing this in line with environment-friendly best practices. Hearing instruments therefore, at
ReSound’s discretion, may be replaced by new products or products manufactured from new
or serviceable used parts, or repaired using new or refurbished replacement parts.
The warranty period of hearing instruments is designated on your warranty card, which is
provided by your hearing care professional.

For hearing instruments that require service, please contact your hearing care professional for
assistance.
ReSound hearing instruments that malfunction must be repaired by a qualified technician. Do
not attempt to open the case of hearing instruments, as this will invalidate the warranty.
