Kanso® is smart

No compromise in hearing performance technology

Kanso® is from Cochlear™, the world’s most innovative hearing company1. It is the only off-the-ear sound processor to feature dual microphones and SmartSound® iQ with SCAN.

This ground-breaking technology first appeared in the award-winning Cochlear Nucleus® 6 Sound Processor and continues with the latest Cochlear Nucleus 7 Sound Processor. The benefits include crisp and clear hearing, particularly in noisy situations2,3.

Cochlear implants provide seven times better hearing performance than hearing aids4. And now, thanks to Kanso, you can enjoy that level of performance in a discreet, off-the-ear solution.
