How often should I change the wax filter on Phonak Audéo hearing aids?

Frequency for replacing the earwax protection on Phonak RIC (Receiver-In-Canal) hearing aids.

Your hearing aid is equipped with an earwax protection to protect the speaker from earwax damage.  

Please check the earwax protector regularly and exchange it if it looks dirty or if the hearing aid volume or sound quality is reduced. The earwax protection should be replaced every four to eight weeks on a regular receiver, and once a week on the ActiveVent™ receiver.
