Audio Processor

These support guides will help you handle and care for the SAMBA Processor.

Basic Care and Maintenance

Follow these basic yet important care instructions to help improve the functioning of your SAMBA audio processor.

MED-EL recommends to clean SAMBA weekly for hygienic reasons. Only clean the outside of the device. Do not clean SAMBA in or under water. Use a damp cloth to gently clean your audio processor. If necessary, use non-abrasive household soap together with a damp cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents.


When not in use, SAMBA should be kept in the SAMBA case provided. You can remove the battery from SAMBA for storage or simply open the battery door to extend battery life.

Contact with water
Prevent water from running into the SAMBA via the microphone openings or the battery compartment.

If you live in a humid climate or perspire heavily, the audio processor should be placed in a drying container instead of in the SAMBA case when it is not worn.

Please store the SAMBA in a dry place and protect it from direct sunlight.
