Cochlear Implant Comparison

Choosing a cochlear implant can be a decision for life. That’s why our implants are designed to give you superior sound quality, long-term reliability, and optimal MRI compatibility. With a MED-EL cochlear implant, you’ll have hearing you can always count on. 

All MED-EL implants from the last 24 years are compatible with our current CI audio processors. And when we design our new audio processors, we make them fully compatible with all of our implants, so you’ll always be able to easily upgrade to the latest technology. 





Electrode Arrays

The array is the part of the implant that is inserted into your cochlea to deliver sound signals to your inner ear.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI scans are an important medical tool for your doctors, so we make sure you’ll have safe, easy access to scans.

Implant Electronics

This is the brain of the implant. It’s built for the long term—so we’ve packed it with the most advanced technology possible.

Implant Design

Built with durable titanium, our implants are designed for long-term reliability.

** MED-EL cochlear implants since 1994 are MR conditional. Recipients with a MED-EL cochlear implant may be safely MRI scanned following the conditions detailed in the instructions for use.
