Hear well everywhere, every day
"As a primary school teacher having better hearing is very important because I need to be able to hear where students' questions are coming from and answer them straight away. The Kanso [Sound Processor] allows me to do that."
- Alison, Cochlear™ implant recipient
Filter out background noise
Dual microphones pick up sound no matter where it’s coming from, while reducing the negative effects of background noise in everyday listening.
Hear well in any environment
Capture every moment — in a quiet room or outside on a windy day, the device will automatically adjust using SmartSound® iQ with SCAN.
Bring sound closer – no strings attached
Cochlear™ True Wireless™ devices help free an adult or child (and their hands) to focus less on physically connecting to electronic devices and more on what's important, such as understanding speech over distance and connecting with people.
Peace of mind for parents
"She can be whatever she wants to be, and find who it is that she going to become. Phoebe does really well at school. She has awesome teachers. She's taken off."
- Cynthia, mother of Phoebe, Cochlear™ implant recipient
Made for a child's active lifestyle
Run, swim and jump around — choose accessories that help the sound processor stay in place and protected.
Parents can track a child's hearing
A hearing health professional can view detailed usage information — such as hours per day the implants are on — to make programming adjustments.
