The joy of hearing - Made simple.
With the new RONDO 3 audio processor MED-EL combines easy use with smart technologies – to enable effortless connectivity and to provide for superior hearing.
October 05, 2020 — (Innsbruck, Austria) — Around 466 million people worldwide suffer from hearing loss severely affecting their daily life. About 34 million of these are children*. Their stories and needs are as unique as their individual types of hearing loss. Whether it is the sound of music, an inspiring conversation or the voices of their loved ones: The right technology can bring very personal moments of joy to every individual with a hearing loss and drastically improve their lives.
It is the philosophy of MED-EL as the global innovation leader in hearing implant solutions to provide custom- fit solutions matching each person’s individual needs. The new RONDO 3 Audio Processor is the latest product innovation – driven by the mission to overcome hearing loss as a barrier to communication. With wireless streaming, wireless charging and Adaptive Intelligence RONDO 3 provides all day hearing. Being compatible with nearly any brand and type of hearing aid, it is the simple yet smart choice for a more natural sound quality and more joyful hearing every day.
Cochlear implant user Tom (UK) explains the importance of the right audio processor: “From my experience, people with a severe hearing loss often fear that an implant solution will not measure up to the natural hearing they once experienced. It is the steady improvement and technological innovation of devices such as audio processors that truly make a difference for people’s lives! What a joy to hear your child’s voice again loud and clear! The only downside of the new RONDO 3 I could detect is that I can tell the lawnmower needs a service. It was just loud noise before, I can now tell it is not running right!”
Conversations in noisy places as well as talking on the phone can be a true challenge with a hearing implant. With two microphones focused on speech, RONDO 3 enables conversations in any environment without changing settings. It’s Automatic Sound Management 3.0 and Adaptive Intelligence technology automatically adapts to any sound environment to ensure more natural hearing in every situation.

For joyful moments without worrying about settings – whether it is in a crowded café, at a noisy playground or an evening at the concert.
Staying connected with family, friends and society is more important than ever. With the RONDO 3 audio processor it is incredibly simple to seamlessly connect to many external audio services. The AudioLink technology enables not only hands-free phone calls but allows wireless high-quality audio while enjoying a movie on the tablet or TV, sharing special moments with loved ones or attending an online business meeting.
Especially for parents it is essential to easily control and adjust their child’s audio processor to ensure the best possible hearing.
