Tips and Tricks
Replacing your receiver-in-canal (RIC) wire
At some point, you will need to replace your receiver-in-canal (RIC) wire, whether you are cleaning your hearing aid or you need to add a new wire entirely. We thought we would put together a handy guide on how to properly remove and insert your RIC wire to get the most out of your Lexie B2 hearing aids Powered by Bose.
How to replace your RIC wire:
- Identify the two ends of the receiver wire
- Identify, and ready, your new receiver wire that corresponds with the same color as the receiver wire you are going to remove (red is for the right ear and blue is for the left ear). It is important that you use the correct wire for each hearing aid.
- The receiver wire is firmly attached to the hearing aid body and might not easily disconnect. Gently insert your fingernail into the narrow space between the hearing aid and the clear plastic end of the receiver wire. Now click or lift the wire out of place. Once disconnected, separate the two by pulling the wire away from the hearing aid body.
- Attach your new receiver wire to the hearing aid.
- Remove the dome from your previous receiver wire and attach it to the new receiver wire.
We have also included a handy tutorial video below so that you can follow along when replacing your RIC wire.

It is important to keep your Lexie B2 hearing aids Powered by Bose dry to prevent any unnecessary damage from moisture, and to keep your hearing in tip-top shape!

- If your drying capsules are spent, you can replace them using the Lexie app – you can even use your Lexie Rewards points instead of cash!
