Manufacturer's Description

The Cochlear™ Nucleus® 6 Sound Processor works with your child's cochlear implant to transfer sound to their ear. The Nucleus 6 System is our most advanced hearing solution to date, providing two processors to choose from to help your child enjoy simply smarter hearing.

We know that sound processor size is important to our recipients, so as our technology advances, we have worked to make our sound processors even smaller. With Nucleus 6, your child now has the choice of the smallest sound processor on the market - the CP920.

While it has all the functionality of the CP910, including the capability to connect wirelessly to audio accessories with a future software upgrade, it does not have an accessory port.

If your child wants to use plug in accessories, the CP910 has an accessory port to enable you to do so.

Both processors are built from tough materials to withstand even the most active lifestyles.

Unique to Nucleus 6, the CP910 and CP920 sound processors contain a Cochlear-developed chip that is five times more powerful than the chip in our Nucleus 5 System, enabling a range of automated sound technologies (SmartSound iQ) and wireless capabilities that let you take advantage of a future range of wireless accessories.

In addition, if at the time of choosing an implantable hearing solution, your child may still have some limited hearing, both the CP910 and CP920 sound processors can have the earhook easily changed to accomodate the acousting hearing aid component to enable the 'hybrid' capability unique to the Nucleus 6 System.
