Designed to help adults with high-frequency hearing loss, our Cochlear™ Nucleus® Hybrid Implant System is a combination of two proven technologies brought together. It’s the only FDA-approved hearing solution that restores access to the high-frequency hearing you are missing through cochlear implant technology, while enhancing your low-frequency hearing through acoustic amplification—all in one device.
The Nucleus 7 Sound Processor with Hybrid Hearing* amplifies the natural low-frequency hearing you have after surgery with an acoustic component that can be placed at the tip of the sound processor while providing you access to the high-frequency sounds you’re missing using our innovative cochlear implant technology, 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 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 it’s kind.
The Nucleus 7 Sound Processor with Hybrid Hearing also includes our most innovative technologies to provide your best hearing performance, including Made for iPhone direct connectivity, synchronized dual microphones and SmartSound® iQ** with SCAN.
*The Acoustic Component should only be used when behavioral audiometric thresholds can be obtained and the recipient can provide feedback regarding sound quality.
*The Hybrid L24 Implant is approved in the US only for adults 18 and older.
