Please read the information on the following pages
before using your hearing aid.
A hearing aid will not restore normal hearing and will not
prevent or improve a hearing impairment resulting from
organic conditions. Infrequent use of a hearing aid does
not permit a user to attain 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.
2.1 Hazard warnings
! The intended use of hearing aids is to amplify and
transmit sound to the ears and hereby compensate
for impaired hearing. The hearing aids (specially
programmed for each hearing loss) must only be used
by the intended person. They should not be used by
any other person as they could damage hearing.
2. Important safety information
! Changes or modifications to the hearing aid that
were not explicitly approved by Phonak are not
permitted. Such changes may damage your ear or
the hearing aid.
! Do not use the hearing aids in explosive areas (mines
or industrial areas with danger of explosions).
! Hearing aid batteries are toxic if they are swallowed!
Keep out of reach of children and mentally challenged
people or pets. If batteries are swallowed, consult
your physician immediately!
! Tamperproof solutions for the battery door, ear hook
and integrated Roger/FM receiver (if used) must be
attached for children younger than 36 months to
prevent accidental swallowing of the battery or small
parts of the device. In case one of these secured
mechanisms is damaged by applying too much force
or using an inappropriate tool, the device should be
brought to your hearing care professional for repair or
