Daily use
25
Using two hearing instruments (optional)
Very rarely does hearing loss occur in only one ear,
therefore the use of two instruments ensures that you are
improving your hearing in all situations allowing you to
better participate in your daily life.
When controlling two instruments you have the following
options to, for example, change the hearing program:
■ You can control each hearing instrument separately.
■ You can control both hearing instruments
simultaneously.
Your Hearing Care Professional has to activate the
"e2e wireless" function, enabling both hearing
instruments to exchange information. You can then
use either a remote control or the user controls on
either of your instruments for the desired function e.g.
volume change.
The control elements of both instruments can even be set
differently – thus offering you the degree of control you
really need.

27
For the automatic program switch, your hearing
instrument detects the telephone receiver’s magnetic
field. Not all telephones produce a magnetic field
strong enough to activate the AutoPhone function. In
this case, you can use the Siemens AutoPhone magnet,
which is available as an accessory, and attach it to the
telephone receiver.
NOTICE
uSee the AutoPhone magnet user guide for
instructions on how to position the magnet.
uUse the approved AutoPhone magnet only.
Ask your Hearing Care Professional for this
accessory.

Magnets can disturb electrical devices and delete
stored data.
uKeep magnets away from computers, monitors,
television sets, storage media and other
electronic equipment/devices.
WARNING
Risk of affecting life support systems!
uUse a magnet only when it is a safe distance
away from life support systems, such as
pacemakers or magnetic valves. For example,
the safe distance between pacemaker and
magnet should be at least 10 cm (4 inches).

Audio induction loops
29
Audio input
With an audio shoe you can connect your hearing
instrument to an FM system. An FM system gathers
speech at the voice source (via a separate microphone)
and transmits the sound directly to the hearing
instrument. This can be useful for adults in difficult
listening situations and for children in classrooms.
Nowadays, most FM systems allow for coupling with
audio devices like a MP3 player.
Your Hearing Care Professional can configure your
hearing instruments so that they switch automatically
to the audio shoe program if the audio shoe has been
attached.
If you want to use an audio shoe, a special battery
compartment is required.
uAsk your Hearing Care Professional to exchange
the battery compartment.
WARNING
Risk of electric shock!
uConnect audio input only to a device
conforming to IEC 60065, the IEC-Norm for
audio, video and other electronic devices.
