SONNET EAS

The SONNET EAS is the 3rd generation Electric Acoustic Stimulation (EAS) Audio Processor from MED-EL, the pioneer of combined Electric Acoustic Stimulation. SONNET EAS combines the SONNET audio processor with an acoustic unit and customised ear mould to provide dedicated acoustic stimulation across the low frequencies and electric stimulation in the high frequencies. With 6-channel 48dB acoustic amplification across the low frequencies, SONNET EAS is the ideal solution for candidates with partial deafness.

Effortless Listening

Life can be a handful sometimes. That's why SONNET EAS 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 EAS, you don't have to worry about an unexpected splash keeping you from the activities you love.


Mix it Up

Blend in or stand out. With hundreds of different colour combinations to choose from, you can mix and match processor parts for a SONNET EAS that suits your style. How will your SONNET EAS look?

SONNET EAS comes in one of these six base colours. For individual colour combinations please contact your local MED-EL representative.

            Never Miss a Moment

            SONNET EAS delivers up to 60-hour battery life without a trade-off in performance. Weighing 11.3 grams, the lightweight SONNET EAS uses two disposable 675 zinc-air batteries. The locking battery case of the SONNET EAS is tamper-proof, making it the ideal option for young children.

            And now, you can even go rechargeable with your SONNET EAS.
