Cochlear implant system
A cochlear implant system consists of two parts: an internal cochlear implant and an external audio processor.
One system – different options
The new SYNCHRONY cochlear implant system consists of a SONNET 2 audio processor and a SYNCHRONY 2 cochlear implant. It has been designed to improve users' hearing to an even greater extent – all within a system which is efficient, user-friendly and comfortable.
The SYNCHRONY cochlear implant system delivers exceptional hearing performance, outstanding reliability and unmatched MRI safety. The system uses proven MED-EL technology designed to achieve more natural hearing.
SYNCHRONY users can choose between a SONNET 2 behind-the-ear audio processor and a RONDO 2 single-unit processor. Both audio processors are powered by the proven Triformance technology for more natural hearing.
Powered by Triformance
Users can protect their hearing, experience the fullest, richest range of sounds, perceive speech and music more naturally – all of which is possible thanks to Triformance. To give users the most natural hearing possible, SYNCHRONY is powered by Triformance, the combination of MED-EL's three key technologies: Structure Preservation (SP), Complete Cochlear Coverage (CCC) and FineHearing (FH)
SYNCHRONY 2 cochlear implant
With its freely rotating and self-aligning magnet, SYNCHRONY 2 is the only cochlear implant which is compatible with a 3.0 Tesla MRI without magnet removal. SYNCHRONY 2 is the smallest and lightest cochlear implant designed for long-term and safe use. The SYNCHRONY 2 PIN implant features small (1.4 mm) titanium fixation pins that secure the implant. MED-EL offers the most extensive electrode portfolio. SYNCHRONY 2 protects the delicate nerve cells of the cochlea because it features the softest and most flexible electrodes.
SONNET 2 behind-the-ear audio processor
With dual microphone technology, SONNET 2 features Automatic Sound Management 2.0 for hands-free control and effortless listening in any conditions. ASM 3.0 automatically adjusts volume levels, reduces any wind noise and helps users to improve their hearing. The water-resistant, lightweight, and tamper-proof SONNET 2 is the ideal choice for both children and adults.
RONDO 2 single-unit processor
RONDO 2 combines an audio processor, a battery pack, and a coil into a compact and convenient single-unit processor. RONDO 2 isn't worn behind the ear, so it is especially comfortable for those who wear glasses. With the WaterWear accessory, RONDO 2 is completely waterproof.
