NEW: Introducing the SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant System

Effortless Listening with SONNET and SONNET EAS




Never miss a moment thanks to automatic sound management (ASM 2.0).  This state-of-the-art technology quickly adapts your listening programme in different environments so that you don’t have to.  Automatic volume control, wind noise reduction, and microphone directionality also make listening effortless.






SONNET ActiveWear The world’s lightest and smallest behind-the-ear wearing option

Designed with toddlers in mind, ActiveWear provides a lightweight control unit worn behind-the-ear, with the battery pack securely attached to clothing using the new SONNET Attachment Clip.

At 6.1g on the ear, it’s the lightest and smallest on-the-ear option available for children, providing maximum comfort and a stylish design.

SONNET BabyWear – Lightweight off-the-ear SONNET audio processor

For infants the BabyWear offers the complete freedom of nothing behind-the-ear.  BabyWear allows the entire audio processor to be attached to a baby’s clothing providing maximum comfort and security.


Connect whenever, wherever

With built-in wireless-ready connectivity and the choice of a range of accessories make the SONNET ideal for people of all ages.  Did you know that you can connect to any Roger device thanks to Phonak’s new Roger 21 SONNET cover with fully integrated Roger receiver?

Nothing on your ear with the single-unit RONDO audio processor

The RONDO is the world’s first single-unit processor, providing users the benefit of having no weight on your ear. It combines the coil, control unit and   battery pack into a discrete single-unit device that you hide under hair.


Make your SONNET or RONDO fully waterproof

The WaterWear is a skin-tight transparent cover placed over the SONNET or RONDO audio processor and closed with an adhesive strip to provide a tight seal. Its IP68 protection rating means that you can go swimming in natural, chlorinated, or salt water whenever you want.



Unbeatable MRI Compatibility


For the first time ever, cochlear implant users can undergo high-resolution MRI scans at 3.0 Tesla without the need for additional surgeries to remove and replace their implant magnet.  Only the SYNCHRONY implant features a revolutionary magnet that means MED-EL users have the highest MRI compatible implant currently available.  No pain, no surgery, and hearing again immediately after a scan.

Reliability Reporting: Honest and Transparent

MED-EL is open about the reliability of all our cochlear implants and audio processors. We regularly publish detailed reliability information online for everyone to see.
