Nucleus 7 Bimodal - Mom and daughter talking

Hearing with both ears offers a clear advantage, especially when it comes to distinguishing where sound is coming from and understanding speech in noisy environments.1,2 Depending on your degree of hearing loss, you may benefit from using a hearing aid in one ear and a cochlear implant in the other, which is commonly referred to as bimodal hearing.

The Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor can be worn with any hearing aid to provide the benefits of bimodal hearing. But now, Cochlear exclusively offers a smart bimodal solution that's Made for iPhone.* This means that you can stream sound simultaneously into both ears with a Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor and a qualifying ReSound hearing aid using your iPhone®, for an enhanced hearing experience.
