Kanso™ Hidden….The Joy of Hearing Found

Posted by CiSurgeon in News | 0 comments

The following is an excerpt from a letter sent by Cochlear Americas to various clinical partners regarding their product.

Cochlear is pleased to announce regulatory approval of the Cochlear™ Nucleus® Kanso™ Sound Processor.

The Kanso Sound Processor (CP950) is a whole new way to hear from Cochlear. It is an offthe‐ear, all‐in‐one sound processor that is the smallest and lightest in its class. Easy to use and incorporating the same smart technology as the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 6 sound processor, the Kanso sound processor provides the same hearing experience as a behind‐the‐ear sound processor in quiet and noise.*1

The Kanso sound processor is designed for people who want to be able to forget they are wearing a hearing device. In a clinical study, participants preferred the Kanso sound processor over their behind‐the‐ear sound processor for comfort, look and feel and ease of use.1
