Interested in the new Kanso 2 Sound Processor?
Cochlear is always thinking of the needs of our recipients first. We also understand that when we introduce new sound processor technology, there are some Cochlear recipients that recently received their sound processors and were unable to select the latest technology.
As a part of the Technology Exchange Program for new systems, you are eligible to exchange your Nucleus 7 or Kanso Sound Processor for a Kanso 2 Sound Processor, if your activation date is on or after the date Kanso 2 became FDA approved. The full eligibility period extends from FDA approval through the official commercial launch date of the Kanso 2 Sound Processor, which is anticipated later this year. You may begin requesting an exchange for one of your Nucleus 7 or Kanso Sound Processors up to 60 days after the official launch date.
If you are a current Nucleus recipient and qualify for an upgrade, Cochlear offers a 90-day return and exchange period on all upgrade orders. Within this period, upgrades can be returned for full credit, or exchanged for another compatible sound processor.
