Hear your best 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 allows me to do that."
- Alison V, Cochlear™ Nucleus® Kanso recipient, Australia
Filter out background noise
Dual microphones work together to reduce sound from behind and to the sides so you hear more of what you want.
Hear your best in any environment
Never miss a moment — in a quiet room or outside on a windy day, your device will automatically adjust using SmartSound® iQ with SCAN.
Bring sound closer – no strings attached
