Question about RTO 2 Siemens Pure 700 Open Fit Hearing Aids Aid Ric Bte

1 Answer

I have Pure 700 RIC BTE HAs for 14 months now. I have had 8 repairs to date. Seems any perspiration ruins the amplifier. I keep them in a drier overnight. I paid a lot of money for them and they are " In the shop " every 5 or 6 weeks. My Audi is going to extend the warranty to 4 years but if this were a car, I would get my money back because of the Lemon Law. Is this a common problem with Siemens? Are other brands so sensitive to perspiration?

It is a common problem, Siemens do seem to suffer it more though. Your audi should keep receivers on hand in order that he can fix it on the spot. Keep your ears clean and dry, clean and dry your aids every night. The use of a drying kit is ideal, but make sure you are changing your tablet enough or re-charging your crystals in the microwave, whichever it is.

Intermittent issues like this can be moisture issues, it might assist if you use a drying kit every night. Another issue could be if you are using the rechargable batteries and charger that may have been supplied to you. After a year or two those batteries will no longer hold a full charge and will need to be replaced.
Could you clarify this for me?

If indeed you are, you need to take them back to the Audi, he will need to assess whether the receivers have failed or if for some reason the instruments have failed.

How to clean the domes on hearing aids


Take the domes off, wash them out or use a pipe cleaner to poke out the wax. If you have washed them, make sure they are thoroughly dry before you put them back on. When you put them back on make sure they are firmly on the receiver tip or you will be taking a trip to A&E to get it removed from your ear canal.

R. Hearing aid has died for the 5th time. Purchased through HearX.


RIC instruments are quite delicate, the receivers often fail, however it is a quick fix to replace them. Have you tried a drying kit, a drying kit is essential to maintain RIC or RITE instruments particularly during the summer months. Go back, get the receivers changed and ask for a drying kit.

The receiver, the piece you call the cord is either blocked with wax or dead. Check the very tip of the receiver for wax detrius, if there is some remove it and see if you can hear. If not you may need to get a new receiver.

It could be a receiver issue, the cord, it might be a faulty receiver or alternatively it could be plugged with wax or badly affected by moisture. Receiver issues are relatively common with Siemens, if you have cleaned out the tip and are confident it is not a moisture issue, the receiver has failed. it is an easy fix and your audi should be able to change it out on the spot.

There are a couple of solutions that you can try, ask your audi to fit a sport lock or change the tip he is using. If that does not work, think about investing in a set of custom made tips. A sport lock is a piece of plastic that attaches to the tubing, when you place the tip in your ear this piece of plastic is folded around the inside of your outer ear along the bowl.It aids retention of the tip.
