If you are considering a cochlear implant, there are many reasons to continue to use a hearing aid in your other ear. Your hearing aid provides loudness and sound with depth. Your cochlear implant gives you greater clarity. When the devices work together, they can provide the rich sound you want and the speech understanding you need.
Because they use the same platform, the Naída devices are able to communicate with each other in a way no other hearing aid and cochlear implant combination can match.
