The Nucleus 6 Sound Processor has the world’s first Scene Classifier in the cochlear implant industry that automatically scans your surroundings and identifies the listening environment as one of six scenes: Speech in Noise, Speech, Noise, Wind, Quiet or Music. SmartSound iQ then adjusts the setting for each scene in order to provide you optimal hearing for that situation.
FDA Approved For Use with Children*
SmartSound iQ from Cochlear is the first major breakthrough in input processing to receive FDA approval for use in children in more than ten years.
It is recommended that the technology be made available to any recipient ages 6 years and older, who is able to:
- Complete objective speech perception testing in quiet and in noise in order to determine and document performance
- Report a preference for different program settings.
