Cochlear™ Osia® 2 Sound Processor – Unilateral

A quick summary about Linda K

  • My Osia sound processor opened a whole new world of sounds
  • I lost my hearing from mumps
  • The Osia sound processor has been such a blessing for me which is why I volunteer

Tell us a bit about yourself

I lost the hearing in my right ear from the mumps around age 6. Wearing hearing aids did not improve my hearing plus they gave me frequent infections. I learned about the Osia®* system in August 2020 and after some research, I was implanted at the end of 2020.

It's been a life changing experience in so many ways. It’s opened up a whole new world of sounds I had not heard before and to new hearing experiences with social interactions, sounds of nature, listening to music and TV watching without closed captioning.

Being a recipient of the Osia 2 sound processor has been such a blessing for me, that for this reason I have chosen to volunteer my time to those who need a little extra help in their hearing journey research by sharing my experience.

*The Cochlear Osia 2 Sound Processor with Aqua+ is dust and water resistant to the level of IP68 of the International Standard IEC60529 when used with LR44 alkaline or nickel metal hydride disposable batteries. This water protection rating means that the sound processor with the Aqua+ can be continuously submerged under water to a depth of up to 3 meters (9 feet and 9 inches) for up to 2 hours.
