Setup & configuration
The Hearing aids need to be paired to the ReSound Phone Clip+ to create a private link for further communication, as well as to allow information to be transferred between the devices.

The hearing aids can also be paired to the ReSound Phone Clip+ by:
- pressing the white pairing button hidden under the silver cap on the ReSound Phone Clip+ and,
- opening and closing the battery doors on the hearing aids within 20 seconds.
The ReSound Phone Clip+ works with a wide range of Bluetooth devices. To find compatible devices look for products supporting one or more of the following Bluetooth profiles: Hands free, Headset. Both profiles are supported by the ReSound Phone Clip+.
The ReSound Phone Clip+ enables your hearing aids to function as a headset for Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and landline phones.
The pairing procedure is controlled by your mobile phone. Different mobile phones have different menu structures. You should therefore refer to your mobile phone’s manual if you cannot complete the pairing procedure with the generic steps described here:
1. Turn your ReSound Phone Clip+ ON and remove the silver cap.
2. Find the connectivity settings on your phone. Look for the “Bluetooth” feature in the main menu or one of the submenus, such as “Connectivity”. (Refer to your mobile phone user guide.)
3. On your mobile phone, ensure that Bluetooth is turned ON.
4. Press the small blue Bluetooth pairing button one time to activate Bluetooth pairing mode for two minutes. The LED indicator will turn blue during Bluetooth pairing.
5. On the mobile phone search for Bluetooth devices.
6. Your mobile phone should present a list of Bluetooth devices discovered. Select “Hearing Aid Phone” from this list.
7. Your mobile phone may then ask you to enter a passcode. If so, enter “0000” (four zeros).
Your ReSound Phone Clip+ should now be paired to your mobile phone. Some mobile phones may ask which
Bluetooth service you wish to enable. Select “Headset”."
Up to 8 Bluetooth devices can be paired with the ReSound Phone Clip+, but only 2 Bluetooth device can be connected/active at a time.
