Kanso® Dual Microphones: proof that two microphones are better than one



The Cochlear™ Nucleus® Kanso® Sound Processor is the only off-the-ear (OTE) cochlear implant sound processor with dual microphone technology. Studies show that two microphones provide significantly better hearing performance in noise than one microphone.1  The Kanso Sound Processor also incorporates SmartSound® iQ* with SCAN, which automatically adjusts in noisy environments to help your patients hear their best.

The Kanso Sound Processor provides sound quality equivalent to a behind-the-ear (BTE) sound processor.1-4 As the world’s smallest and lightest OTE cochlear implant sound processor, the Kanso Sound Processor is a comfortable and discreet wearing option for your patients.3 In a clinical trial, 85% of recipients rated the comfort of the Kanso Sound Processor to be better than their BTE sound processor.2 Comfortability and discretion makes the Kanso Sound Processor ideal for all ages; from infants to seniors and all ages in between.

The Kanso Sound Processor also offers True Wireless™ capability, which allows your patients to connect wirelessly to their accessory devices. Studies show that when paired with the Cochlear™ Wireless Mini Microphone, patients hearing performance improved by up to 8 dB.4
