CI and EAS Audio Processor

These support guides will help you handle and care for the SONNET & SONNET EAS Audio Processor.

Basic Care and Maintenance

Follow these basic and important care instructions to help improve the functioning of your SONNET and extend its life.

General Cleaning
Clean SONNET regularly by wiping it with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions. Use extra care when cleaning small parts such as the battery contacts and microphone covers.


Battery Contacts
Inspect the battery contacts regularly; clean and dry them as necessary. To clean them, use a cotton swab and a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Gently wipe them dry. Avoid touching the battery contacts.


Microphone Cover
If the microphone cover gets wet, wipe it dry or replace it. Replace the microphone cover every three months, or sooner if it appears dirty or if sound quality has worsened.

Sonnet-Drying Kit

Use the drying kit every night to allow SONNET to dry out completely. Disposable batteries may remain in the battery pack frame but you should remove the battery pack cover.


Do not put rechargeable batteries into the drying kit.


Protect SONNET from excessive or unnecessary exposure to water. If your audio processor gets wet, gently wipe it dry with a soft absorbent cloth.


Do not leave SONNET in direct sunlight, especially inside a vehicle. Do not expose your audio processor to extreme temperatures.
