SYNCHRONY 2 Important Decision

An Important Decision

It’s important to choose the right audio processor, but it’s even more important to choose the right implant. Why? Because it’s the implant that most influences how well you hear.

SYNCHRONY 2 uses advanced coding strategies, designed to give you natural sound quality. This helps you to hear the high and low tones, and the fine details of both everyday conversations and your favourite songs. What’s more, MED-EL cochlear implants are the only implants that offer this kind of technology.

The Right Fit

You’d never wear shoes that didn’t fit your feet, so why choose a cochlear implant that doesn’t fit your ear? SYNCHRONY 2 is an individualized cochlear implant—that means it has an electrode array that is the ideal fit for your individual cochlea. With the right electrode array, you can make the most of your cochlear implant, and experience the best hearing you possibly can.

SYNCHRONY 2 - Easy Surgery

An Easy Surgery

It’s a fact that all cochlear implants need to be surgically implanted. Thankfully, our SYNCHRONY implants* are not only the smallest and lightest titanium implants available, but SYNCHRONY 2 has also been designed to make your surgery as simple as possible. After an easy surgery, you can get back on your feet, and start enjoying the next stage of your hearing journey.


SYNCHRONY 2 - Made for MRI

Made For MRI

Statistics show that every one of us will need an MRI at some point in our life. With some cochlear implants, this can mean extra surgery to remove the magnet in your implant, plus time without your audio processor as you recover from the surgery.

But SYNCHRONY 2 is different. Its revolutionary magnet means you can have MRIs of up to 3.0 Tesla without magnet removal surgery. In fact, you can have an MRI in exactly the same way as you would without an implant. That’s why SYNCHRONY 2 gets the easyMRI seal of approval.

  • No surgery
  • No discomfort
  • No hearing downtime
