For a Richer Hearing Experience
Our FineHearing advantage is the combination of two unique MED-EL sound-processing strategies that combine to create an enhanced perception of tone and pitch in all frequencies. Our cochlear implant recipients benefit from a more accurate perception of sound through FineHearing's precise control of sound information—in both quiet and noisy environments.
The Power of 250 Pitches
FineHearing provides access to as many as 250 unique pitches of sound. Hearing this full spectrum of sound allows our users to appreciate the subtle differences between sounds. FineHearing is designed to provide more unique pitches than any other cochlear implant technology. The potential of 250 unique pitches creates a more vibrant soundscape for our cochlear implant recipients.
The Importance of Fine Structure
The potential for these 250 unique pitches requires the precision and control of Fine Structure to provide the greatest benefit. Fine Structure sharpens and clarifies these 250 unique pitches for exceptional sound accuracy. Fine Structure achieves this by controlling how all sounds, in both the low and high frequencies, are perceived by the cochlea. Other cochlear implant technologies only control the high frequencies of sound. Fine Structure’s additional precision processing in the low frequencies creates a hearing experience that is richer and more natural. This delivers improved perception of both speech and music for our cochlear implant recipients.
