RONDO Audio Processor

As the first all-in-one cochlear implant audio processor, RONDO set a new benchmark in design. All the parts, including the microphone, battery, and coil, are integrated into one compact unit, making RONDO comfortable to wear and easy to maintain. What’s more, you can go for up to five days before needing to change the batteries.

Any audio processor can give you sound. We want to give you more—that’s why our audio processors are powered by Triformance technology.

With a more natural sound quality that no other cochlear implant system can match, you can enjoy richer music and more natural speech. You’re choosing to hear, so why not choose to hear your best?
