What is the difference between hearing aids and hearing implants?

Hearing aids help many people by making the sounds they hear louder. Unfortunately, as hearing loss progresses, sounds need to not only be made louder, they need to be made clearer. Hearing implants can help give you that clarity, even in noisy environments².

Cochlear implants are better than hearing aids in noisy environments.

Did you know?

Many factors contribute to improved hearing performance. Research and decades of experience have demonstrated that hearing implants provide improved:

  • Clarity, restoring access to missing sounds3

  • Hearing in noise and speech understanding4,5

  • Quality of life5

Hearing implants…

  • Are covered by Medicare (and most other insurance)*

  • Are a FDA approved established medical treatment

  • Involve a routine outpatient surgical procedure

93% of cochlear implant recipients improved speech understanding compared to hearing aids.5

83% reported a statistically significant improvement in quality of life after receiving a cochlear implant5

Blending hearing technology with human capacity. Seamlessly.

If you have conductive or mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness, the Cochlear™ Osia® Implant System may be the hearing solution you have been looking for.

The Osia System bypasses the damaged parts of the ear caused by such conditions as chronically infected or draining ears, otosclerosis and a cholesteatoma. The system sends vibrations directly through the bone to your inner ear, helping you hear more loudly and clearly.2,3

Piezo Power™ transducer stimulation

The Osia's System Piezo Power™ transducer is placed discreetly under the skin and is designed to expand and contract to send powerful sound vibrations directly to your inner ear. This transducer has no movement between the inner workings of the implant, which provides you with reliable and consistent hearing performance over time.4 Piezoelectricity has been used for years in many products like microphones, high-end speakers and medical equipment, and we are pioneering the use of this powerful technology in hearing implants.
