Taking the hard work out of hearing
"The [Nucleus] 6 has given me the greatest thing I’ve ever asked for: just to hear music coming from my daughter."
- Sue G, Cochlear™ Nucleus® 6 recipient, Australia
Hear your best wherever you are
Never miss a moment — in a quiet room or outside on a windy day, your sound processor will automatically adjust using SmartSound iQ with SCAN.
Boost your remaining hearing
The integrated hearing aid functionality allows you to use the hearing you have to understand speech in complex listening environments.
Improve your speech understanding
Enhance your hearing with SmartSound iQ with SCAN technology. It automatically applies the best direction and settings for your microphone to help you understand other peoples' speech.
Filter out background noise
Dual microphones work together to reduce sound from behind and to the sides so you hear more of what you want.
Confidence comes from clarity
"The TV Streamer allows me to actually stream directly into both ears from the TV. Going wireless has been absolutely amazing. I thought it was great before, but it’s even better now."
- Faye Y, Cochlear™ Nucleus® recipient, Australia
