The two-ear solution designed to work together

Most cochlear implant wearers choose to a have only one cochlear implant despite having severe or profound hearing loss in both ears. The other un-implanted ear requires a super-powered hearing solution that works in harmony with the cochlear implant. This is known as bimodal hearing, and scientific evidence shows that combining a hearing aid with a cochlear implant results in significantly higher speech understanding and sound quality than provided by the cochlear implant or a hearing aid alone.10

Marvel technology has now been extended to these bimodal-hearing patients with the introduction of Phonak Sky Link Marvel and new Naída Link Marvel. Both the Sky Link Marvel and Naída Link Marvel can be worn together as hearing aids or be paired with an Advanced Bionics Sky CI Marvel or Naída CI Marvel sound processor. Because they are both based on Marvel technology, the cochlear implant sound processor and hearing aid are wirelessly connected and communicate with each other in a coordinated, dynamic way. Like their cochlear implant counterparts, both Sky Link Marvel and Naída Link Marvel also feature RogerDirect™, hands-free calls with own voice-pickup, and directly connect to iOS, Android or other Bluetooth-enabled devices.




Scientific Evidence

As the innovation leader in the field of cochlear implants, we rely on scientific evidence to create the best possible products and programs. This is an integral part of our commitment to hearing care professionals and CI wearers.
