Extra security when you need it

We design sound processors to be comfortable and secure no matter what you're doing.

But sometimes, you want reassurance that you won't lose them, especially during activities like running or yoga. Or maybe you're a parent who wants peace of mind that your child won't lose his or her sound processor.

Cochlear™ accessories can help keep your processor in place.
