The benefits of bimodal hearing
If you have hearing loss and experience difficulty understanding conversations, even when wearing high-powered hearing aids in each ear, you may need a different hearing solution. It may be time to consider a bimodal solution — a cochlear implant on one ear with a hearing aid on the other.
A bimodal solution may provide greater sound clarity and improved speech understanding, especially in noise.1 With a bimodal solution, you may also be able to determine where sound is coming from better, have an improved quality of life and enjoy improved satisfaction listening to music than with hearing aids alone.1,2
For a premium hearing experience with advanced connectivity, we offer smart bimodal hearing solutions in collaboration with ReSound, a pioneer in the hearing aid industry.
