Hybrid Hearing: Who is a Candidate?


The Cochlear™ Nucleus® Hybrid™ Implant System is the only FDA-approved electric-plus-acoustic option available today.

This innovative technology transforms the way hearing loss is treated, allowing adults with high-frequency hearing loss to access critical speech sounds through electrical stimulation combined with natural acoustic hearing.

Hybrid candidates struggle to hear well in noise and will report dissatisfaction with appropriately fit hearing aids. Help them get back what they are missing!Candidacy-Indications
