Nucleus® 6 Sound Processor
A small and light sound processor that delivers seamless connectivity and enhanced hearing performance.1
Adults and children can get the most from their hearing
The Nucleus® 6 Sound Processor includes SmartSound® iQ with SCAN technology, a feature that helps adults and children understand speech1 so they can focus on what’s being said.
Choice of colour
The Nucleus 6 Sound Processor comes in five colours, so adults and children can choose the shade that best matches their preference.
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, Cochlear™ implant recipient
Adults and children can hear their best wherever they go
Capture every moment — in a quiet room or outside on a windy day, the sound processor will automatically adjust using SmartSound® iQ with SCAN.
Boost remaining hearing
The integrated hearing aid functionality allows adults and children to use the hearing they have to understand speech in complex listening environments.
Improve speech understanding
Enhance hearing with SmartSound® iQ with SCAN technology. It automatically applies the best direction and settings for the microphone to help adults and children understand other peoples' speech.
Filter out background noise
Dual microphones work together to reduce sound from behind and to the sides so adults and children hear more of what they want.
Confidence comes from clarity
"I use the Phone Clip. In a weird way, you don't notice it. It's what it should be."
- Sandy, Cochlear™ implant recipient
Focus on the conversation with ease
The Mini Microphone 2+ streams sound directly to the sound processor. Hear more clearly, whether in a classroom, at work or in a busy restaurant.
