AutoSound OS allows you to:
AB provides the maximum possible speech understanding in any environment with the most advanced technology for hearing with both ears. The groundbreaking Phonak Binaural VoiceStream Technology (BVST) in your Naída CI Q90 sound processors doesn’t simply process sounds at the same time, like other systems. It gives your processors the unique ability to communicate with each other so they can work together, automatically and in real time. They intelligently focus on the sound you want to hear and deliver it wirelessly to both ears simultaneously while significantly reducing unwanted noises.
With your Advanced Bionics C1 cochlear implant and Harmony™ sound processor, you have a number of great connectivity options, including wireless streaming to Bluetooth enabled devices, to help you hear better on the phone, in meetings, when chatting to friends and loved ones, or when listening to your favorite music:
On December 12, 1996, Larissa Depamphilis became the youngest child to receive an AB cochlear implant at just 19 months of age, receiving a C1 internal device. Today, this AB pioneer is an engineering major who wants to design cochlear implants.
“I went to watch one of my grandsons play basketball. The gym has been a noise nightmare for me that sounds like an echo chamber with screaming kids, parents, and bouncing balls. This time, I actually enjoyed myself and could hear what the people sitting next to me were saying and asking. That was when the changes being made by the Naída CI Q90 sound processor were very noticeable.”
—Nick Yacheson, AB recipient
“The automatic UltraZoom feature is awesome. I usually don’t adjust my program when I’m in a noisier environment, so for me it is fantastic. Before, I often got noise overload, which is very tiring and often prompted me to leave an event. With UltraZoom adjusting automatically, I am much more comfortable and can hear better in noisy situations.”
