The new Aqua+ gives you the ability to swim or bathe with your sound processor without the need for any cumbersome cables, cases or a special sound processor specifically for water activities.

There should be nothing holding you back from enjoying water activities with family and friends.

For parents, your child will love the fact that they can enjoy the pool or beach, just like their friends. You will have the confidence that your child will be able to hear you in and around water and not miss a word.

Its flexible sleeve envelops your processor in a watertight housing, and a specially designed waterproof coil connects the sound processor within the sleeve. It's durable, reusable, compact, and of course, waterproof!
