The importance of technology

There are some hearing environments that require additional signal processing technologies to optimise hearing performance in difficult listening environments.

While flexible ‘set and go’ sound processor programs offer excellent solutions for many everyday listening situations, there are some hearing environments – like the classroom – that require additional signal processing technologies to optimise hearing performance in difficult listening environments.

Experience is showing that school children in classrooms that do not have access to FM technology, such as India, may be more able to focus on the teacher’s voice by using zoom directional technology.

Only available with the Cochlear Nucleus CP810 sound processor, the SmartSound Noise program uses dual omni-directional microphone technology that focusses in on the speaker in front while reducing background noise, giving your child their best competitive edge in the classroom yet.

Without the Noise setting background sounds compete with the teacher’s voice.

When using the Noise setting the teacher’s voice is highlighted while the background noise is suppressed.
