Wearing Options as Flexible as Your Lifestyle
Providing solutions for all ages and lifestyles, we offer you or your child flexible wearing options: all-on-the-ear, some-on-the-ear, or nothing-on-the-ear (NOTE™). Each option is designed to help you get the most in comfort and convenience from your AB cochlear implant system.
Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Wearing Option
This streamlined wearing option, also referred to as all-on-the-ear, positions the sound processor,power source, and earhook, including the T-Mic™, over and behind the ear so that the ear supports the weight. This option is a great choice for those who want a lightweight, out-of-the-way system with minimal cables, such as the ultra-slim Naída CI Q70 (Naída CI). It allows recipients to easily place the processor on the ear and virtually forget about it as they take on their daily activities.
Nothing-on-the-Ear Wearing Option
This completely off-the-ear option is an excellent choice for those with active lifestyles, those who prefer a more discreet look, or children with small ears who can’t support a behind-the-ear or some-on-the-ear wearing option. This option keeps everything off the ear. Neptune is the industry’s first freestyle™ design, for those with active lifestyles who want a completely waterproof, swimmable processor with the comfort and beauty of nothing on the ear. Naída CI and Harmony processors can also be worn completely off the ear using clip accessories.
