Your new RC3-1 remote control
We hope you will be pleased with the remote control for your Widex hearing aid. We have included
these user’s instructions to explain how your remote
control should be operated. We recommend that
you read the entire booklet to get full satisfaction
from your new RC3-1 remote control.
Your RC3-1 remote control is an accessory for your
hearing aid. You can easily operate your hearing aid
without the remote control; it is just an alternative
way of operating your hearing aid. The advantages of
a Widex RC3-1 remote control are:
• Unlike the buttons on your hearing aid when it
is placed in/on the ear, you can easily see the keys
on the remote control.
• The larger keys on the remote control are easier to
manipulate than the small buttons on the hearing
aid.
• The remote control enables you to operate your
hearing aid discreetly, e.g. from your pocket or
handbag.
• You can adjust the volume and choose programs
for a CIC hearing aid.

RC3-1
Your RC3-1 remote control is a small computer that
contains data for the different hearing aid settings.
It also contains a radio transmitter, which sends
messages to the hearing aid. The remote control and
hearing aid do not need to be in view of each other.
The operating range is approximately 1 metre.
2.Program selection. The [1], [2] and [3] keys are
used for program selection. Your RC3-1 can operate a maximum of three programs.
3.On/off function. The [1] key is used to turn on
the remote control. The [1] key also sets the remote control to the initial setting: P1 V9.

5.Transparent key guard with holes for the keys.
With the cover closed, the risk of accidental keypresses is reduced. The key guard can be flipped
open to make the remote control a little longer
and easier to hold. The keys are then higher and
easier to feel.

The battery
Battery type
The recommended battery type for your RC3-1 remote control is:
Lithium CR 2032
Your RC3-1 uses two CR2032 batteries.
Inserting the batteries
The plus (+) sign on the batteries for your RC3-1
must face upwards when placed in the battery compartment.
To obtain replacement batteries, please consult your
hearing care professional. Please note the expiry
date and the recommendations regarding disposal
of used batteries on the battery pack. The battery
life will depend on how much you use your remote
control.
Changing the batteries
Always change both batteries at the same time. The
display shows the battery level of the remote control.
When the battery is nearly exhausted, this
symbol will be continuously displayed. If
the symbol is only briefly displayed, you
need not change the batteries.

Turning the remote control on and off
The volume
The RC3-1 remote control is turned on when the
[1] key is pressed for approximately ½ second. As
standard, it will automatically turn off after 15 seconds. Your hearing care professional can help you
select another time-out setting, if required.
The [+] [–] keys allow you to adjust the volume in 13 steps. The
minimum level is 0, at which level the hearing aid is completely
silent, and the maximum level
is 13. The initial volume setting
used as standard is 9, and this
is always the volume setting to
which the remote control reverts.
If, for example, you have selected listening program
2 and volume level 6, and then change to another
listening program, the volume level will automatically change to 9.
Initial setting
When your RC3-1 is turned on, you can set the instrument to the initial setting, P1 V9, by pressing
the [1] key for approximately 2 seconds.
10
You can adjust the volume one step at a time by single key presses, or you can hold the [+] or [–] key
down until the required volume has been reached.
11
Adjusting the volume if you only have one hearing
aid
The starting point is a turned off
remote control starting up in program 1 at volume level 9. Press the
[1] key for approximately ½ second. The initial setting, P1 V9,
should now be displayed. Use the
[+] [–] keys to adjust the volume
as required. The remote control
automatically turns off after approximately 15 seconds.
Adjusting the volume if you have two hearing aids
The starting point is a turned off
remote control starting up in program 1 at volume level 9. Press
the [1] key for approximately ½
second. The initial setting, P1
V9, should now be displayed.
Use the [+] [–] keys to adjust the
volume as required. Your choice
will then apply to both of your
hearing aids. The remote control
automatically turns off after approximately 15 seconds.
12
13
Mute
You can also use your RC3-1 to mute your hearing
aid completely.
Using the mute function if you only have one

[1] key for approximately ½ second. Then press and hold down
the [1] key while pressing the [–]
key. The number 0 is displayed
next to V. To turn up the volume
again, press the [+] key. This will
reset the volume to the initial
setting (9).

Using the mute function if you have two hearing
aids
The starting point is a turned off
remote control starting up in program 1 at volume level 9. Press the
[1] key for approximately ½ second. The initial setting, P1 V9,
should now be displayed. Then
press and hold down the [1] key
while pressing the [–] key. The
number 0 is displayed next to V.
This value applies to both hearing aids.
15
Listening programs
With your RC3-1 remote control, you can choose between
up to three listening programs.
Together with your hearing care
professional you should have established which programs are of
use to you. If your needs change
over time, the combination of listening programs can be changed.
You can switch between the listening programs by
using the [1], [2] and [3] keys. The number shown
next to P (program) in the display tells you which
program you have chosen. You will also hear beeps
indicating choice of program.
The beeps indicate:
Program 1: One brief beep
Program 2: Two brief beeps
Program 3: Three brief beeps
Program
Program name in
the hearing aid

The number of beeps depends on how many programs
you - together with your hearing care professional have chosen to have in your hearing aid. In these instructions, you and your hearing care professional can
make a note of the programs you have chosen.

Selecting a listening program if
you have two hearing aids
The starting point is a turned off
remote control starting up in program 1 at volume level 9. Press
the [1] key for approximately ½
second. Select the listening program you wish to apply using the
[1], [2] and [3] keys. Your choice

18
Important: Please note that if you alternate between
using your remote control and the controls on your
hearing aid to adjust the volume and select listening
programs, the remote control will cancel any adjustments that have been made manually on your hearing aid.
An example: You adjust the volume or select a listening program on the remote control. Then the remote
control turns off. If you now change the volume setting and listening program by means of the controls
on your hearing aid and turn your remote control
back on, the hearing aid will be reset to the settings
chosen before the remote control turned off and you
changed the settings manually on your hearing aid.

Short-term logging
Caring for your remote control
If switched on by your hearing care professional, the
short-term logging function in your RC3-1 remote
control allows you to record a specific, problematic
listening situation. The hearing care professional can
then analyse the recorded situation using special
software. The remote control is used to start the recording. The recording is made through the hearing
aid and lasts one minute.
With proper care, your RC3-1 remote control will
give you a long life of reliable service. Here are some
things you can do to prolong the life of your remote
control:
To start recording:
Press and hold down the centre
key [1] of the activated or deactivated remote control while
pressing the lower right key [3].
• Treat your remote control as the valuable object
it is: with care. When it is not in use, keep it in a
cool, dry location where it cannot be reached by
children or pets.
• Do not expose it to extreme temperatures or high
humidity.
• Never try to open or repair your remote control
yourself.
Your hearing aid will start recording the acoustic situation
you are in. The remaining time of
the short-term logging is shown
in the remote control display. When you use the
short-term logging function again, your previous
recording will be replaced by the new recording.
• Clean the remote control with a soft cloth. Never
wash your remote control with water, cleaning
solutions or other liquids.

Good advice
• Do not carry your remote control with you during x-ray, MR scans, CT scans, short-wave diathermy, or similar radiation treatments and never
place your remote control in a microwave oven.
These are some of the types of radiation that can
damage your remote control. Radiation from, for
example, room surveillance equipment, burglar
alarms and cellular telephones is weaker and will
not damage your remote control.
• The RC3-1 remote control is not certified for use
in mines or other areas with explosive gases.
22
• Please be sure to keep your remote control and its
parts and accessories out of the reach of children,
who might place them in their mouths. Also keep
batteries out of children’s reach and discard used
batteries carefully. Do not change batteries in
front of children and do not let them see where
you keep your supply.
• Never put a battery in your mouth for any reason
as you may risk swallowing it. In case of ingestion, contact your physician immediately.
