SONNET Processor for Cochlear Implants

Effortless Listening

Life can be a handful sometimes. That's why SONNET is designed for hands-free control wherever you go.

Automatic Sound Management 2.0 (ASM 2.0) actively adapts to changing listening environments, so you don't have to worry about adjusting settings or changing programs. Focus on what you're listening to, not on which program you'll need to hear it.

Microphone Directionality focuses your hearing by using two microphones to sharpen the sounds in front of you for better listening, especially in noisy settings.

Wind Noise Reduction minimises continuous wind noise, making it easier to hear in outdoor settings. The levels of wind noise reduction can be adjusted for your specific needs.

Automatic Volume Control continuously monitors your environment and seamlessly adjusts volume levels to ensure every sound is heard clearly and comfortably.


Water-Resistant

Make a Splash

Relax by the pool, run through the sprinklers, or jump in the puddles. With the water-resistant SONNET, you don't have to worry about an unexpected splash keeping you from the activities you love.

And with the fully waterproof WaterWear accessory, you're ready to go anywhere with your SONNET.

Structure Preservation

Our incredibly soft, flexible electrodes are designed to protect the delicate nerve cells of your inner ear. Structure Preservation provides a solid foundation for a more clear and accurate perception of sound. Protecting your cochlea enables your implant to deliver the best benefit, both now and in the future.
