ReSound’s Vea™ offers an easy to fit, durable, fitting solution. The hearing instruments are protected with Isolate™ nanotech, offer advanced features options, and are available in two price points. Vea™ hearing instruments are connected in Aventa 3 using programming cables and the Programming Adaptor II boot.
Here are a couple of tips, when connecting the Vea™ BTE Instruments
- Confirm that you are in Aventa 3.3 or later.
- Insert fresh batteries into the Vea™ BTE hearing instruments
- Be sure that you are using a CS 44 cable and the Programming Adaptor II boot.Note: The Programming Adaptor II boot is NOT the same as the Programming Adaptor I boot (used to program Alera and some Legacy BTE instruments).
Keys to identify the Programming Adaptor II boot
– The words, “Programming Adaptor II,” are written on the boot.
– The boot is medium blonde versus the Programming Adaptor I boot, which is charcoal.
- Revealing Vea™ programming contacts
– Look at the underside of the Vea™ hearing instrument for a small panel with the serial number displayed.
– Using a pin tool, gently insert the tool in the circular indentation located near the top of the panel and slide the panel completely down.Note: the panel must be all the way down in order for the Programming Adpator II boot to properly attach.
- Connecting the programming boot to the Vea™ BTE
– Beginning on the underside of the BTE, insert the Programming Adaptor II boot at an angle, then rotate the boot towards the bottom of the aid and snap in place.
– Connect the CS 44 cable to the Programming Adaptor II boot and connect the other end of the cable to either Speedlink, NOAHLink, or Hi-Pro
– When programming is completed and the Programming Adaptor II boot is removed, use the pin tool to slide the Vea™ program panel back up and lock into place.
