Over 450,000 people have been where you are right now. Face to face with their own hearing loss. Or that of a loved one. If you are straining to hear even when using powerful hearing aids and find that you are unable to understand what is being said, a Cochlear™ Nucleus® Implant System or Hybrid™ Hearing* may be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
Cochlear and the Nucleus Implant Systems provides you with choices of wearing options, wireless connections and personalized services to help you not only hear your best, but HearYourWay™.
Could you benefit from a cochlear implant?
Cochlear implants help adults with with severe to profound hearing loss in both ears, or children 12 months or older with moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears and are not receiving enough benefit when using hearing aids. Although there is no cure for hearing loss, the cochlear implant has become widely recognized as an established treatment for those with profound hearing loss.1
Use your natural hearing with Cochlear™ Hybrid™ Hearing.
Cochlear Hybrid Hearing* is a combination of two proven technologies. The first technology is acoustic amplification.of the low- frequency natural hearing you have after surgery. The second is our innovative Cochlear Implant technology that provides access to the high-frequency sounds you’re missing, for a richer hearing experience. Hybrid Hearing is compatible with our wide Nucleus Electrode portfolio.
If you experience ski-slope hearing loss where you have normal to moderate low-frequency hearing loss before surgery, but severe to profound high-frequency hearing loss, the Cochlear Nucleus Hybrid Implant System may be a solution. The Hybrid System uses a special electrode** that is designed to preserve your low-frequency hearing and it’s the first FDA-approved electrode of its kind.
For many people, cochlear implants can:1
Improve auditory awareness of sounds at levels within the normal range of hearing
Improve speech and language skills
Improve quality of life
Improve employment opportunities2
How Hybrid Hearing works.
Cochlear Hybrid Hearing* is a combination of hearing aid and cochlear implant technologies. It uses acoustic amplification of the natural low-frequency hearing you may have after surgery, while taking advantage of cochlear implant technology to restore access to the high-frequency sounds you’re missing.
There are Two Main Parts of The Nucleus Implant System
An external sound processor
…and an internal implant.
Baha 5 Sound Processor
Designed to help those with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss and single-sided deafness, the Cochlear™ Baha® System utilizes your body’s natural ability to conduct sound. By connecting to the bone behind your ear, the Baha System bypasses the damaged outer or middle ear and sends sound directly to your healthy inner ear.

100 percent of users reported they were satisfied or very satisfied with the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor and its components13
