  4. As per default, the headphones are connected for call and media audio within the Bluetooth settings. Press the gear-wheel symbol on the right for settings, and temporarily disable call audio for a correct hearing test functionality
  5. Check if music can be played by using the headphones

  2. Start the MIY app
  3. Confirm the note FIRMWARE UPDATE AVAILABLE with "OK"
  4. Grant the required location permission with "OK" and allow to access the device's location, so that the app can locate the nearby headphones

  2. On the PROFILE screen page, go to "UPDATE YOUR SOUND PROFILE" to personalize your sound and to start the hearing test
  3. Allow MIY to record audio by selecting "ALLOW", so that the app can measure the ambient noise for preparation of the hearing test
  4. Follow the further instructions of the app
  5. If the message 'Something's gone wrong' appears, there is momentarily no connection to the Mimi webserver. In that case, check the internet connection or try again later.
    If the message repeatedly appears, it is recommended to uninstall the app, and download and install again (see above)
  6. When the hearing test is completed, the call audio functionality can be enabled within the mobile's Bluetooth settings
