xS / xP Hearing Aid Receivers
The hearing aid receiver works by converting electrical signals from the amplifier into acoustic energy or sound. Therefore these hearing aid receivers are a vital part of a functioning hearing aid.

Hearing Aid Receiver Strength and How to Choose the Right One
It is important to choose the correct strength receiver to match the type of hearing loss you have. That means that if you have severe or profound hearing loss, you will need more powerful receiver strength. To choose the right receiver strength, we recommend that you come and visit one of our hearing specialists and take our hearing tests.
How to Choose the Correct Hearing Aid Receiver Length
Getting the correct hearing aid receiver length is essential for a comfortable fit. If you don’t already know what length of hearing aid receiver you use, then come into one of Hearing Group’s hearing aid centers. We will use a specially designed measuring device to determine the correct length hearing aid receiver for you.
How to Identify the Length and Strength of Your Hearing Aid Receiver
The length of the receiver wire is printed as a small number on the blue bottom portion of the receiver for the left ear or on the red bottom portion of the receiver for the right ear. The length is shown by a number (0, 1, 2, or 3). The strength level is printed next to the length number and is indicated by a letter: xS for Standard or xP for a Power receiver.
- xS and xP Receiver Length: 0, 1, 2, 3
- xS and xP Receiver Strength: xS, xP
- xS and xP Receiver Side: Left, Right

What is the difference in Hearing Aid Receiver lengths?
The difference in lengths cannot be an exact measurement as it curves around the ear differently for each person. In general, the difference is as follows: 0 = 15-18mm or 0.59-0.70″ 1 = 18-22mm or 0.70-0.86″ 2 = 22-27mm or 0.86-1.06″ 3 = 32mm or 1.25″
Are these Original Manufacturer parts?

What is the difference between the xS and xP receivers?
The difference between xS and xP receivers is the amount of gain that the receiver can put out to accommodate certain hearing losses. The xS receiver is generally made for Mild and Moderate hearing loss, and the xP receiver is made to help with Severe to Profound hearing losses.
Can I Change the Strength of the Hearing Aid Receiver Myself?
Some people may think that if they do not hear as well as they used to that they can simply change the power of the receiver to get more strength. As tempting as that may be, please understand that it is not that easy. The reason is that when your hearing aid was set up for you, it was programmed to work with a specific power of the receiver. If you need more power, it is always wise to see your hearing professional for their advice and possible change. From our standpoint, the number one reason why a person may feel that they are not hearing as well is that the hearing aid receiver is clogged and needs to be replaced. We recommend trying that first.
What Is the Function of the Receiver in a Hearing Aid?
The hearing aid receiver is the part of the hearing aid that converts the sounds from the amplifier and converts them back into sound. The receiver works as a speaker to send the sound to the inner ear.
How Long Do Hearing Aid Receivers Last?
Although the length of time that your hearing aid receivers last can vary depending on the instrument, usage, and how well it is maintained, the receivers generally last anywhere between 18 months to seven years.
