In Sync with Natural Hearing


The SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant System combines a number of powerful technologies to provide our recipients with the most natural hearing possible.

With Triformance, Automatic Sound Management 2.0, the most comprehensive portfolio of electrodes, and 3.0 T MRI safety without magnet removal, SYNCHRONY delivers superior performance in sync with natural hearing.

Triformance For More Natural Hearing

The SYNCHRONY System features Triformance for more natural hearing in any listening environment. Triformance is the combination of three MED-EL technologies that work together to deliver the most natural hearing possible for your patients.



FineHearing is the only sound coding technology that delivers a richer perception of sound in all frequencies, including deep bass tones. Our cochlear implant recipients benefit from a fuller, more accurate perception of sound through FineHearing's precise control of essential sound information—in both quiet and noisy environments.

Structure Preservation

Specifically engineered for Structure Preservation to ensure cochlear integrity, FLEX electrode arrays are the most atraumatic electrode arrays available. Uniquely designed not to deviate into other scalae and ideal for both round window and cochleostomy surgical approaches, FLEX electrode arrays are recommended for safe, complete electrode insertion, ensuring a hearing future.

Complete Cochlear Coverage

Stimulation of the cochlea from the base to the apical region provides recipients with the full spectrum of sound for a more natural hearing experience. Only long, flexible electrode arrays that facilitate structure preservation can be inserted fully into the cochlea, achieving Complete Cochlear Coverage for optimal hearing outcomes.

SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant

MRI Safe at 3.0 Tesla—Without Magnet Removal


Combining unparalleled 3.0T MRI safety with proven performance, reliability, and the most comprehensive portfolio of atraumatic electrodes available.

  • MRI safe at 0.2, 1.0, 1.5, and even 3.0 T without the need for magnet removal.
  • Rotatable, self-aligning magnet greatly reduces torque for increased patient comfort during MRI scans.
  • If necessary, the magnet can be removed to minimise image distortion on MRI head scans.
  • The magnet can only be removed from the bottom side of the implant, making dislocation of the magnet due to trauma almost impossible.
  • The SYNCHRONY PIN implant features titanium fixation pins to secure the placement of the implant for outstanding stability.
