The Advanced Bionics microphones pick up sounds at the opening of the ear canal for the most natural listening experience.
The sound waves are converted into detailed digital signals by our sound processor.
Our headpiece sends the digital signals to the cochlear implant and electrode array in the inner ear.
The electrode array stimulates the hearing nerve.
The hearing nerve sends impulses to the brain, which interprets them as sounds.
