Bring on the Automation

Simply Automatic

As you move through your day, you experience many different sound environments. With AutoSound™ OS, your Naída CI Q90 intelligently analyzes and automatically adapts to the sound around you so you hear your best wherever you go without having to change programs or adjust any settings.

AutoSound OS incorporates proven AB technology and Phonak solutions already relied upon by millions of hearing aid users and cochlear implant recipients worldwide.

Bring on the Automation

The world can be a noisy place, and hearing in noise represents a challenge for everyone, especially people with a hearing loss. To help you hear better in every situation, AB developed AutoSound OS, which includes unique AB & Phonak technology that adapts dynamically to every environment, so hear your best no matter where your busy life takes you.

  • Focus on the speaker in front of you with less effort,
    even in noisy situations
  • Enjoy music and understand song lyrics clearly
  • Hear more comfortably in the presence of wind or sudden,
    loud noises
  • Follow conversations effortlessly in cars, trains, or buses

Hear Your Best in Everyday Situations

AB’s ClearVoice™ speech enhancement technology* is the first and only sound processing strategy recognized by the FDA to have demonstrated improved speech understanding and superior hearing performance in noise.1 It automatically analyses and adapts to each listening situation that you encounter throughout the day, separating the distracting noises from what you want to hear most—speech.

The UltraZoom feature uses advanced microphone technology that focuses on the person speaking in front of you while reducing distracting noise around you. This proven Phonak technology helps you follow a conversation more easily in noisy surroundings. As the graph above shows, when the UltraZoom feature and ClearVoice technology are combined, there is a significant improvement in understanding speech in noise.2-4

Capture the Rhythm

Music inspires the soul. You or your child want to hear vocals and instruments as accurately and clearly as possible. Advanced Bionics technology is designed to capture music without missing a note.

Only AB offers sound processing innovations proven to enhance speech understanding and music appreciation. AB's advanced implant design and sound processing strategy deliver all the dimensions of music, including a wider range of pitches than any other system. These innovations mean you can hear song lyrics more clearly and enjoy the sound of music better than ever before.

Speech in Quiet

In quiet environments, you want to hear speech clearly and comfortably, without the enhancements designed for hearing in noise. AutoSound™ OS technology automatically analyzes the level of sound around you and uses the most appropriate technology for your current surroundings.


Speech in Noise

The Naída CI Q90 processor includes the most advanced technology
 available for hearing speech in noise. AutoSound™ OS technology 
automatically adapts to your changing environment to help you follow a
 conversation even when you're surrounded by noise.



The AutoSound™ OS technology in your Naída CI Q90 processors helps
 you get the most enjoyment from listening to your favorite music. The
 automatic features in your Naída CI Q90 processors provide the greatest 
sound resolution available so you hear all the rich layers of the music you love.



Carrying on a conversation in a car can be challenging. The traffic and
 engine noise, combined with the inability to face the person you are 
talking to, makes listening difficult. AutoSound™ OS technology works
 automatically to help you hear better with features that reduce distracting
 noise and that focus on speakers to your side, back, or front.


Comfort in Noise

Being in noisy places, like crowded restaurants or busy streets, can be
 uncomfortable, even when you're not following conversations. With AutoSound™ OS technology, your Naída CI Q90 processors automatically
 adapt to noisy environments, providing greater comfort and better hearing.


Comfort in Wind

The ability to hear your best in any environment is a key benefit of
 the Naída CI Q90. At times, wind creates unpleasant, distracting noise.
 AutoSound™ OS technology includes a feature that automatically detects and reduces the effect of high wind noise for greater comfort outdoors.


Comfort in Sudden Noise

Sudden loud sounds can be jarring and uncomfortable. AutoSound™ OS 
technology includes a feature that automatically detects and reduces the
 effects of unexpected noises, such as doors slamming and plates clanging.


“The ComPilot is phenomenal. I’m a techie, so it fits right into my lifestyle. I was using it to listen to music on my Mac while doing some work in a coffee shop when some people asked me what it was. When I explained it to them and described all the features tht it has — Bluetooth, FM capabilitites, and the auiliary port — they said that they were jealous!”
Michael Lambert, AB recipient

“We’re so thrilled that the relationship between Phonak and AB has resulted in the Naída CI Processor and the ComPilot, which allows Teddy to hear music, his computer, and his phone in both ears at the same time!”
Kerri Hicks, mother of AB recipient Teddy
