Helping you have a better hearing
"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."*1
- Alison, Cochlear™ Nucleus® Kanso Sound Processor 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 your best in different environments
Your device is intended to adjust hearing for a quiet room or outside on a windy day, using SmartSound® iQ with SCAN.
Bring sound closer – no strings attached
Cochlear™ True Wireless™ technology helps free you to focus less on trying to hear and more on hearing better in difficult situations, such as understanding speech over distance and connecting to all types of electronic devices.
