Adjusting to a World of New Sounds
How to adjust
New Sounds
If you are inexperienced with hearing instruments it is advisable to:
A hearing loss is typically acquired gradually over many years. You may
have become accustomed to an everyday life with fewer sounds, which
also means hearing less noise than people with normal hearing.
1.Use your hearing instruments every day
With your new hearing instruments you will experience many sounds that
you may not have heard for years. It will take time to get used to all these
sounds again. Some examples of these sounds are:
• The clock ticking
• Turning pages of the newspaper
• Children’s voices
• Whispers and soft speech
• Car noise
• Birdsong
• The sound of your own footsteps
2.Wear your hearing instruments for just a couple of hours a day
during the first week
3.Gradually increase time you wear your hearing instruments.
It can take several months for your brain to get used to all the “new”
sounds around you. Start using your hearing instruments in mainly
quiet surroundings and start with a comfortable volume (the hearing
care professional will ensure this). Listen to and get familiar with all
sounds in your home, such as a ticking clock, water running in the sink,
or silverware used on a plate. In quiet surroundings, converse with a
person you know well. Listen to a TV or radio at home. After you have
used the hearing instruments for a while you will be ready for more
demanding listening situations, like conversation with a group of two
or three people.
How to Use the Hearing Instrument
Insertion of the Hearing Instrument
On/Off Function
To insert the hearing instrument into your ear:
Your ReSound X-plore hearing instrument is equipped with an on/off
switch integrated into the battery compartment.
TM
1.When the battery compartment is fully closed, the instrument
is turned on
1. Hold the instrument with your thumb and fore­
finger (as shown), either above and below or on
the sides (as illustrated)
2. Place the sound outlet portion into your ear canal
2.To turn the instrument off, open the battery compartment.
Many individuals use their fingernail to pull it open.
3. Insert the instrument into your ear canal
3.Whenever you are not using the instrument, remember to turn it off to
stop battery consumption
Note:
It may be helpful to pull your ear up and outward,
with your opposite hand, while inserting.
SmartStart
By experimenting, you may find a method that is easier for you.
When properly inserted, the instrument should fit comfortably and
tightly in your ear. It is important that the custom shell fits correctly
into your ear. If the hearing instrument irritates your ear in any way
please contact your hearing care professional to have the custom
shell modified. You should never attempt to modify the shape of the
custom shell yourself.
SmartStart allows you to insert the instrument in your ear without
the hearing instrument squealing. It delays the switch-on time by 10
seconds after closing the battery compartment. A beep each second
is presented during this time.
Tip
Opening and closing your mouth can ease insertion.
Volume Control on MC (optional)
Removing the Hearing Instrument
Your ReSound X-plore XE20 / XE20-P hearing instruments have an
optional volume control. When using the instrument, you can increase
the volume by turning the volume control forward (towards your face
when you are wearing the instrument) and reduce volume by turning it
backward.
To remove the hearing instrument, simply pull the removal cord with
your thumb and forefinger and pull outward. Consult your hearing care
professional if you have difficulty removing the hearing instrument.
TM
For each volume step, you will hear a “beep” signal indicating the
change. The loudness of the “beeps” will increase as you turn the
volume up and decrease as you turn it down. If you reach the upper or
lower limit of the volume control range, there will be a different type of
“beep” signal with a lower pitch.
10
11
Programme Selector (Standard on XE10-B/XE10-BP and
optional on XE20/XE20-P)
You can have up to three different programmes on your hearing instrument. The selection of programmes can be changed by your hearing
care professional.
1.You can switch between programmes by pushing the programme
selector once
Stand-by Function
In stand-by mode, the hearing instrument will not process sound
or deliver an acoustic signal to the ear. When in this mode, a small
amount of power will be used. To put the instrument in stand-by mode,
hold down the programme selector for 5 seconds. You will hear a series
of beeps and the device will be in stand-by mode. To return to standard
mode, press the programme selector once. This can only be done after
at least 5 seconds in the stand-by mode.
2.You will then hear one or more “beeps”. The number of beeps
indicates which programme you have selected
3.You can always return to programme 1 by turning your instrument
off and then on again, or by placing it in stand-by mode and then
returning to its operating mode

Telephone Use
You can use the telephone with your hearing instruments. Using the tele­
phone while using your hearing instruments may require some practice.
On occasion, you may notice a whistling (feedback) when the tele­phone
is held close to the hearing instrument. To reduce the potential for this
problem, your hearing instrument is equipped with an adaptive digital
feedback suppression system (Dual Stabilizer DFS) which allows for
use of the telephone while greatly reducing the risk of feedback. Hold
the phone close to the hearing instrument, but not directly on it. If there
is feedback, it may take a few seconds for the instrument to adapt and
eliminate it
Cellular phone
If you use a cellular phone you may experience a buzzing or clicking
noise. This is caused by the strong signal of the cellular phone.
Consult with your hearing care professional for options to improve the
sound quality
14
15
Low Battery Warning
Maintenance
Your hearing care professional can activate a Low Battery Warning
function in your hearing instruments. When the battery voltage/power
decreases to a certain level, the instrument will emit five soft beeping
signals. This sequence will continue every five minutes until the instrument automatically switches off. It is recommended that you keep a
spare battery at hand.
Daily Maintenance
Changing the Battery
1.Open the battery compartment completely
by using your fingernail
2.After removing the old battery, insert the
new one
3.Always use Zinc-Air size 10A
It is important to keep your hearing instrument clean and dry every
day. To clean the instrument, use a soft cloth. If the instrument has been
exposed to high humidity or perspiration, use a drying kit that is available
from your hearing care professional.
To avoid the need for repairs:
1.Never immerse the instrument in water or other liquids since this may
cause permanent damage to the hearing instrument
2.Protect your hearing instrument from rough handling, and avoid
dropping it on hard surfaces or floors
3.Do not leave the instrument in or near direct heat or sunlight since
excessive heat can damage the instrument or deform the casing
It is important to insert the battery with
the positive side in the correct position.
The battery door has a + marking to help determine correct insertion.
When not in use
Removing the battery when you are not wearing the instrument for a
longer period will help prevent corrosion of the battery contacts.

Cleaning and Replacing the Sound Filters
General Precautions
Cleaning the Microphone Sound Inlet
1.Do not leave your hearing instrument in the sun, near an open fire
or in a hot, parked car
For proper function of the microphone, it is important to clean the sound
inlet to remove dust or other sound-disturbing debris. The soft brush,
provided with your hearing instrument, can be used for this purpose.
Your hearing care professional can instruct you on how to properly use
this tool.
Changing the Sound Outlet Filter/Cleaning the Sound Outlet
Your ReSound X-ploreTM hearing instrument may be equipped with a
sound outlet filter (consult your hearing care professional). This filter
is located at the end of the sound outlet and prevents debris from
getting into the hearing instrument. If the hearing instrument seems to
have lost power, and changing the battery does not help, the filter may
be blocked, and needs to be changed. Your hearing care professional
can instruct you on how to change the filter.
2.Do not wear your instrument while showering, swimming, in heavy
rain or in a moist atmosphere such as steam bath or sauna
3.Should your hearing instrument become wet or moist, use the
drying kit that your hearing care professional has recommended.
Do not place the hearing instrument in a very warm place to
remove moisture (for example, the oven or use a hair dryer).
Direct or indirect heat can damage the instrument.
4.Remove your hearing instrument when applying such things as
cosmetics, perfume, aftershave, hair spray, and suntan lotion.
These might get into the instrument and cause damage.
If your hearing instrument does not have a filter, ear wax and/or other
de­bris may accumulate in the sound channel. The cleaning loop,
provided with your hearing instrument, can be used to remove this
material. Your hearing care professional can instruct you on how to
properly use this tool. When using this tool, be careful not to damage or
pull the tubing placed at the opening of the sound outlet. If this is pulled
out, the hearing instrument may need to be returned for repair.
