Question

How do I control volume when fitting Unite wireless accessories?

Answer

The ReSound Alera and ReSound Unite accessories provide users with unique opportunities for connecting to sound sources. The flexibility of the system can potentially provide numerous ways of making volume adjustments.
There are five different ways to adjust the volume of sounds being streamed from a wireless accessory as well as those being picked up by the hearing instrument microphone:

  1. Wireless program gain settings in the Aventa fitting screen: This will increase or decrease the volume of the wireless accessory (if it is set to streaming only) and hearing instrument microphone (if it is set to streaming + microphone).


  2. Microphone balance in the Aventa "Advanced Features" tab: This will adjust the amount of streaming in relation to the microphone input in the wireless program. The option includes a slider with settings ranging from "Off" (the microphone is inactive) to "On" (the microphone input is balanced with the streaming input). The slider can be adjusted to incremental settings between "Off" and "On," ranging from -11 to -1, respectively.


  3. Volume control on the wireless accessory: This will increase or decrease the volume of the input source.


  4. Volume control on the Unite Remote Control: This will increase or decrease the volume of the wireless program.


  5. Volume control on the ReSound Alera hearing instrument: This will increase or decrease the volume of the wireless program.
