How to

put on a miniBTE or BTE
hearing aid with thin tube

Putting on your hearing aid with a thin tube correctly every time takes practice. Learn about it here.

  • 1. Place the hearing aid behind your ear.

  • 2. Hold the bend of the tube between your thumb and index finger. The earpiece should point towards the ear canal opening.

  • 3. Gently push the earpiece into your ear canal until the thin tube sits close against the side of your head.

Notice the left/right
ear marking

Hearing aids are fitted to the unique characteristics of each ear, which means your left hearing aid is programmed differently from your right. In order to easily identify whether it is the left ear or right ear aid, colour markings may be applied inside the battery drawer of behind-the-ear styles:

Left: blue dot.

Right: red dot.
