Nucleus 7 Sound Processor

Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor

The Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor¹ is the smallest and lightest behind-the-ear sound processor² in the industry so you can wear it comfortably all day. It features options to hear the way you want and our most advanced technology to provide your best hearing, even in challenging, noisy environments.

The Nucleus 7 is also the world's first Made for iPhone cochlear implant sound processor. You can stream phone calls, music, and more directly to your processor from a compatible Apple® device. You can also download the Nucleus Smart App to a compatible Apple or Android™ device so you don't need to carry an additional remote control.

The Nucleus 7 also comes complete with our latest technology - ForwardFocus**, a clinician enabled, feature designed to reduce noise coming from behind and help you to focus on a face-to-face conversation. Once enabled by a clinician, the user can control ForwardFocus through the Nucleus Smart App.

The Nucleus Sound Processors use a scene classifier that automatically scans your surroundings and matches the listening environment to one of six scenes. Based on the scene SmartSound® iQ adjusts the settings for optimal hearing.*
