It's time to get back what you've been missing.

Cochlear™ Hybrid™ Hearing may help.

Don’t miss out on
the sounds of life.


Life is filled with highs and lows. Don't miss out on the highs.

You may still be able to hear some sounds, but it has gotten harder to hear conversations in both quiet and noisy situations. You can still hear barks and honks, but you can’t hear whistles and chirps, which are high-frequency sounds.

High-frequency sounds help you distinguish words and detect emotion. Without them, words merge together – making what you do hear jumbled and difficult to understand.

Low-Frequency Sounds

  • Provide the general rhythm and framework of the sounds you hear
  • Allow you to detect the vowel sounds in words, such as "ah" which convey the melody of speech
  • Used to appreciate music
  • Examples of low-frequency sounds: lawn mower, bass guitars, frog croaks

High-Frequency Sounds

  • Add clarity to the sounds you hear
  • Allow you to perceive the consonant sounds, such as "sh" which enables you to differentiate words
  • Makes music and nature sound richer, fuller and crisper
  • Examples of high-frequency sounds: doorbells, whistles, bird chirps

Cochlear offers the industry's first Hybrid Hearing* solution.

the Cochlear™ Nucleus® Hybrid™ Implant System**

*The Acoustic Component should only be used when behavioral audiometric thresholds can be obtained and the recipient
can provide feedback regarding sound quality.
**The Hybrid L24 Implant is approved in the US only for adults 18 and older.


Improve sound clarity and speech understanding.

Cochlear Hybrid Hearing uses acoustic amplification to improve the hearing you may have after surgery, while taking advantage of cochlear implant technology to restore access to the hearing you're missing. The result can be improved sound quality and speech recognition.

Is the Hybrid Implant System covered by insurance?

Many insurance companies cover the Cochlear Nucleus Hybrid Implant System for patients who qualify. Visit a Hearing Implant Specialist to be evaluated and determine whether the Hybrid Implant System may be a solution for you.

The Nucleus Hybrid Implant System makes everything crisp and clear. I asked my husband what sounds I was hearing. He said that’s a bird and that’s silverware clanging against the plate. If I had to choose two words to describe this experience, they would be Miraculous and Life-Changing.
