Three reasons to choose our HiRes™ Ultra 3D cochlear implants 

Best Overall
Medical Device

Hassle Free: because with our HiRes Ultra 3D cochlear implant, you can treat an MRI like any other standard medical examination.


Pain Free: because our innovative multi-magnet assembly design provides alignment to the magnetic field, so there's no pain and discomfort during an MRI.


Uninterrupted Hearing: because the only thing that you have to do to get an MRI is to take off the sound processor and put it back on after the MRI examination.

Hassle Free MRIs

We believe that an MRI procedure should be hassle free for you. That is why our innovative multi-magnet assembly in the HiRes Ultra 3D implant provides alignment to the external MRI magnetic field, allowing you to safely undergo high-resolution imaging, such as 3.0 Tesla MRIs, without any preparation, surgery or head bandaging.

Pain Free

Going into an MRI tube can be stressful. Not being allowed to move your head in the MRI field can increase that stress. 

Our HiRes Ultra 3D cochlear implant requires no restriction on head orientation during an MRI. This means that you can be more relaxed and comfortable within the magnetic field.

The alignment provided by the multi-magnet assembly ensures that the powerful forces generated during an MRI don't cause any torque, pressure, tugging or discomfort for you. This means pain free MRI procedures every time.

Uninterrupted Hearing

When getting an MRI, you will not need any special preparation other than taking off your sound processor and headpiece. And when the scan is done, all you have to do is put it back on. With our HiRes Ultra 3D cochlear implant we provide you uninterrupted hearing, which is essential for your everyday life.
