AB’s unique lifestyle™ line of sound processors, including Naída CI Q70 (Naída CI) and Neptune™, has been designed to suit all ages, lifestyles, weather, activities, and terrain.


AB offers the industry’s most flexible wearing styles to meet your needs. With the introduction of Naída CI, the market’s first featherlite instyledesign has arrived. Slim and trim, Naída CI sound processors are incredibly lightweight for barely noticeable on or off-ear wearing while maintaining optimal microphone placement.


For those who prefer to never wear anything on the ear, the Neptune™ processor features the only swimmable freestyledesign giving you the freedom to choose your wearing style—in your hair, on your arm, under your collar, in your pocket—without compromising performance.



Why Stephen Chose AB

“I chose AB because of the technology inside; it’s only using 10% of its capacity with room for many subsequent upgrades in the years ahead. Additionally, AB’s many features such as the behind-the-ear design, the T-Mic, and rechargeable batteries fit my lifestyle.”
