How to

clean the Corda thin tube

Read the following if your instrument has a thin tube (Corda miniFit) with either a dome or micro mould as earpiece.

Corda miniFit is a thin tube that brings the sound into your ear. The thin tube should always be used with an earpiece attached. Use only parts designed for your hearing instrument.

Clean the thin tube
The thin tube should be cleaned to keep it clear from moisture and wax. If not cleaned it could become blocked with wax, meaning no sound will be able to get out.

  • 1. Pull the thin tube out of the hearing instrument

  • 2. Push the cleaning tool all the way through the thin tube

  • 3. Reconnect the thin tube to the hearing instrument
