Accessories for Cochlear Implants

Many of the speech processors today feature ''accessory input'' which allows one to connect audio accessories and assistive listening devices directly to the cochlear implant. Cochlear implants are compatible with many different types of accessories, including patch cables, FM systems, telephone adapters and specialty products such as cell phone adapters. Direct connection means that the intended sound is going right into the cochlear implant without losing any part of the signal before it reaches the microphone. This is a great way for new implant users to build their listening skills!

All Nucleus speech processors are equipped for accessory use. Nucleus recipients receive a wide range of accessories including patch cables, remote microphone and customized accessories for the particular processor, such as telephone adapters. The telephone adapter is an accessory that provides direct connection from the speech processor to a standard corded telephone. In addition to the included accessories, my ESPrit 3G has a built-in telecoil that eliminates the need for cables and adapters when using the telephone, telecoil compatible devices such as headphones and certain assistive listening systems.
