Programming the ReSound Live9

Scroll down to see all the steps for programming the ReSound Live.

This is my USB Hi-Pro. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Hi-Pro is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My Hi-Pro, without me, is useless. Without my Hi-Pro, I am useless. :smiley:

Connected ReSound Live9. Note that the battery is NOT in the hearing aid. If you leave the battery in then the lights will flash continuously on the Hi-Pro and it will not work. You are now ready to start programming with Aventa 2.9 (not Aventa 2.7 because it cannot detect the latest Live and Dot2 models).

Happy programming…

I got all of this stuff, but can’t get it to work. It lights up and appears to look for the right and left aids, but Aventa 2.95 can’t read them. Tried it on Windows 7 64 bit and Windows XP 32 bit. All the latest drivers installed; all the latest software updates installed.

I tried the hardware at my audiologist, who uses a NOAH plus the Hi-Pro and it worked perfectly.

I’m stuck! Any suggestions?

You don’t need Noah. No batteries, right? What model? Live9? What’s is the model number? Are you using serial Hi-Pro or USB hi-Pro? What lights up?

Thanks for the reply. I have the Live TS for Tinnitus, Model AO970 DVR. It’s a BTE, with RIE.
Using the Hi-Pro USB. The correct lights are lighting up. The self check lights flash when it’s first plugged in. The power light and PC Com light are both on. When you hit the ‘what’s connected’ button, the light by the Left DIN connector goes on, then the right, but Aventa doesn’t detect it.
For this particular model, it seems that you need to leave the battery in. I had this demonstrated when I took it to my audiologist. She connected it through the NOAH, and it worked.
I plugged it directly into the USB port on both my 64 bit and 32 bit computers. Tried it with the battery in, and with the battery out for good measure. SDame result. Pretty sure it’s a problem between Aventa and the Hi-Pro; I think it’s the hiprotst.exe module in the Aventa/Hipro directory that’s not working.

Thanks Much,


Well Aventa 2.95 does seem to support your model (see picture below).

Since you tried both battery-in/battery-out then that’s not your primary problem.

I don’t think it’s a problem between Aventa and the Hi-Pro because when you hit the what’s connected button, the Hi-Pro light by the Left DIN connector goes on, then the right. So I believe your Hi-Pro is connected and working.

What about the cable and boots connections? The cable needs to be a standard CS44 cable and not a Phonak CS44A which has pins 3&4 reversed. Are you plugging in the tiny cable ends into the boots snugly, and with the correct orientation? The boots (this model uses boots, right?) need to establish contact with pins on the bottom of the hearing aid. See picture (above) circle-1 on Diagram of how to connect ReSound Live9.

You don’t need noah!

Would this setup work for Programming Resound Alera/Future?

Good point.

Thanks for your research and the reply.I checked the cables - they’re correct and fit into the boots correctly. As I mentioned previously, I brought my whole setup - Hi-Pro, boot, cables, to my audiologist. She plugged it in to her computer’s USB and it worked, using my hardware, so I don’t see how it could be a hardware problem; I even tried a few different USB ports to rule that out.


I need to buy some programming shoes just like these. Does anyone know where I can buy them ?

I also need the shoes/boots for the Resound Live 9 series… already searched on ebay but no luck… can anybody please inform where to buy ?

You might try

I see they are still available from a guy on They’re not cheap though. Search ‘Programming boots’ on that website and you should find them.

I’m going to be getting pair of resound linx 9’s next week, they got deliverd to my audi but now she says she’s waiting for the cables and the program to set them up. Correct me if I’m wrong but don’t you need aventa 3.6 and the airlink to program Linx9’s


Where did you obtain your hearing aid adapters? I need a set for the ReSound LV 70 DIVR.

I’m not sure which version of Aventa is the minimum to program Linx. The current version is 3.8. You can use standard cables OR you can use an airlink. Wireless programming with airlink is probably the single best part of Resound hearing aids. But if you have to use cables, I guess you do what you gotta do. :slight_smile: You should ask your Aud for programming adapters. Resound will give them to him for free. ALL manufacturers will give programming boots and cables for FREE. I have piles and piles of them.

Can you elaborate a little on how to obtain piles of programming boots and cables for FREE and specifically for Oticon, Phonak, Starkey.

Do you mean that each of us should become an Audiologist, start a business, and then get piles of programming boots and cables for FREE?

When we ask our Audiologist for help with programming equipment we hear a very loud noise. We can hear it even without hearing aids. It sounds like muahahaha!

LOL. Obviously it will be more difficult for you to obtain cables and boots if your Aud will not give them to you. I’ve just always thought it was funny how Auds and HISes protect that stuff. As if you can’t go on ebay and get hi pros and speedlinks and Noahlinks, etc… It seems to me that if my patients were that intent on programming their own devices, I would give them the boots and cables (because they are free), but then I would charge them for every office visit to fix things that they mess up. Could be a gold mine.
