You may still be able to hear some sounds, but it has gotten harder to hear conversations in both quiet and noisy situations. You can still hear barks and honks, but you can’t hear whistles and chirps. You may have high-frequency hearing loss.
This type of hearing loss causes you to miss the high-frequency sounds that allow you to distinguish words and detect emotion. Without them, words merge together – making what you do hear jumbled and difficult to understand.
The Cochlear Nucleus Hybrid Implant System is the first and only solution that uses Hybrid Hearing to help people with high-frequency hearing loss regain a more complete hearing experience.
