About the Study
This study – "Benefit of a Commercially Available Cochlear Implant Processor With Dual-Microphone Beamforming: A Multi-Center Study" – was conducted across four cochlear implant clinics in the United States. Thirty-five adult Nucleus recipients were upgraded to the Nucleus 5 Sound Processor and speech recognition was assessed with CNC monosyllabic words in quiet and sentences in noise from the BKB-SIN (Bamford-Kowal-Bench Sentences in Noise) test. The primary objective of the study was to compare speech recognition in quiet and in noise for the Nucleus Freedom and Nucleus 5 CP810 Sound Processors set to the manufacturer's default user programs for quiet and noisy environments.

About Cochlear Implants
Cochlear implants are a proven medical option for infants as young as 12 months old with profound hearing loss in both ears, children aged two and older with severe-to-profound hearing loss, and adults with moderate-to-profound hearing loss in both ears. They are electronic devices, which bypass damaged hair cells in the inner ear, or cochlea, and stimulate the hearing nerve directly.

About Cochlear
Cochlear is the world leader in advanced hearing technologies. Since launching the first multichannel cochlear implant system 30 years ago, Cochlear Limited and its U.S. headquarters have brought the miracle of sound to more than 250,000 people with hearing loss across the globe.
