What are clinicians and recipients saying about the Cochlear™ Kanso® 2 Sound Processor?
Our first generation Kanso® Sound Processor taught us that patients and clinicians value a comfortable, simple design that is easy to use, in combination with smart features that positively impact overall hearing performance.1,2 This has evolved further in the Kanso 2 Sound Processor, with the addition of a built-in rechargeable battery designed for all-day hearing3 paired with a new auto-on feature designed to simplify the daily routine.
The simplicity of a Home Charger that charges, stores and dries the sound processor was one highlight, as well as the new tap interface. One recipient specifically mentioned the impact of direct streaming while enjoying listening to music in bed, and also the ability to listen to WhatsApp messages without disturbing her partner! During the global COVID pandemic, numerous patients commented on the ease of mask-wearing with the Kanso 2 Sound Processor, and this ease extended to those who wear glasses as well.
During early access with the Kanso 2 Sound Processor fit on 85 individuals, clinicians noted that over half of the recipients who chose the Kanso 2 Sound Processor did so because of the desire to wear a processor in the off-the-ear position, while other key reasons included the integrated rechargeable battery and connectivity.4 Daily battery life was top of mind with new recipients, and our clinicians found that when fitting a new Kanso 2 Sound Processor the average estimated battery life calculated by fitting software was 22 hours4*, addressing those concerns. Next, when recipients upgraded from our first generation Kanso Sound Processor they were likely to be fit with the same strength magnet, but when upgrading from a behind-the-ear (BTE) sound processor they often required a magnet strength increase.
