Nucleus® Smart App

Designed specifically for the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor, the Nucleus Smart App allows recipients to adjust their sound processor settings across a range of different environments directly from a compatible iPhone® or iPod touch®, or from compatible Android™ devices using the Cochlear Wireless Phone Clip.1

With the Nucleus Smart App, recipients can:

  • Monitor the status of their sound processor – View the battery life and check if the sound processor is working at a glance. Just tap the battery icon in the top right of the app.

  • Adjust their mixing ratio – When on a phone call they may want to block out surrounding noise so they can concentrate on the conversation. To do this tap ‘Audio Sources’, then ‘More’, and reduce the ‘Microphone Volume’ which is the sound transmitted from the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor microphones.

  • Find their processor – The Nucleus Smart App can help locate a misplaced sound processor by indicating on a map where the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor and compatible Apple® or Android devices were last paired together.

  • Hearing Tracker – Monitor the number of times the coil comes off and the length of their Time in Speech. To access the Hearing Tracker, tap the menu button in the top left hand corner of the app
