For a Richer Hearing Experience


Our FineHearing advantage is the unique MED-EL sound-processing technology that delivers a richer perception of sound in all frequencies, including deep bass tones. Our cochlear implant recipients benefit from a fuller, more accurate perception of sound through FineHearing's precise control of essential sound information—in both quiet and noisy environments.

The FineHearing Technologies:

The Full Spectrum of Sound

FineHearing is able to provide our recipients with access to the full range of natural frequencies, including low-frequency bass tones. Hearing this full spectrum of sound allows our recipients to appreciate the richness of music and to notice the subtle differences between sounds. FineHearing is designed to provide a wider range of unique pitches than any other cochlear implant technology. This broad listening spectrum creates a more vibrant soundscape for our cochlear implant recipients.

The Importance of the
Fine Structure of Sound

This comprehensive range of stimulation requires the precision and control of the fine structure of sound to provide the greatest benefit. FineHearing delivers up to 250 unique pitches of sound for exceptional listening accuracy. FineHearing achieves this by controlling how all sounds, in both the high and low frequencies, are perceived by the cochlea. It is the only technology that delivers this additional precision processing in the low frequencies. This enables FineHearing to deliver deep bass tones for a music and speech listening experience that is much richer and more natural.

Synergy in Technology

Triformance provides the best possible hearing to recipients of our cochlear implant systems through the unique advantages of Structure Preservation, Complete Cochlear Coverage, and FineHearing. These technologies work together in synergy to deliver superior hearing performance.

As a component of Triformance, FineHearing enables our recipients to reach their fullest hearing potential—with a richer, more natural hearing experience.

For A Richer Hearing Experience

FineHearing is the only sound-coding technology that provides access to the full spectrum of sound, including bass tones, for a richer and more natural listening experience.
