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 customized ear mold 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 an 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 minimizes 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.
