Widex RIC / RIE Receiver Wire – £49.95. When you select to purchase a left and a right wire at the same time a reduced price of £96.95 is available.
This listing is for a receiver wire and NOT for a hearing aid.
To work out which product to order you need to note which size and type of receiver you are using.
If your hearing aid was supplied before 2014 you may still have one of the older style of receiver wires, otherwise you will already be on the newer ‘Easywear’ type. Easywear wires are a direct replacement for the older type of wire.
The easiest way to tell the difference is Easywear wires have a grey housing (where the dome attaches to it) and the older original style have a white housing. See image of both styles.
If you are presently using an old style wire you need to make note of the wire size and the power level.
On the old style wire the wire size is quite hard to see but it is a number printed on the clear plastic joining on to the white receiver housing as indicated to the right, and the power level (1, S, M or P) is printed on the white housing itself, also indicated.
If you are replacing an existing Easywear wire then the power level, the size of wire and the side are all printed on the grey housing as indicated to the right – in this instance M2R indicates a medium power level, a size 2 wire and for the right ear.
If you are presently using an old Type 1 receiver wire we recommend you replace it with a Type S wire, the two types are interchangeable and the newer Easywear design is smaller, more contoured and designed to be more robust. If you change to the new Easywear wire you will also need to order the new type of dome (S,M,P domes are more secure, are a better design and have more variations in size and type). N.B. If you are using a Type 1 receiver with a custom tip please email us in the first instance.
It is a very easy process to remove the old speaker wire and replace with a new one, simply tug the speaker wire gently away from the body of the hearing aid vertically and the wire should detatch fairly easily. To put the new speaker wire onto your hearing aid the pins on the new speaker wire simply slot straight into the top of the hearing aid in the same slot you have just removed your old speaker wire from.
