The tiny, discreet Cochlear™ Kanso® Sound Processor makes it easy to get on with life and connect with your friends and family. Here are a couple of tips for making the most of your social life.
If you’re used to relying on text and email messages, re-discover the joy of picking up the phone to plan a get together with friends. Using the phone is often the easiest way to talk through different options and discuss everyone’s preferences. (It’s also an extra opportunity to catch up with the news.)
With new CI recipients, some immediately find it easy to hold a conversation on the phone. For others, it takes time and practice. But all agree it’s worth the effort.
The Cochlear™ Wireless Phone Clip allows you to stream phone calls and music directly to your Kanso, which makes talking on the phone much easier. When someone calls you, you can answer the call without even taking your phone out of your pocket or handbag – no chance you’ll end up with a missed call!
If you already have a Cochlear Wireless Phone Clip, but need some help pairing it to your Kanso, watch this video.
Whether your musical passion is a classical symphony in a concert hall, karaoke night at the local bar or an intimate summer evening at home listening to jazz in the garden, if you love music, share the occasion with a friend. It’s doubly rewarding to be able to discuss what you both enjoy … and what you might listen to next.
Listening to music with a cochlear implant is a very individual experience and it can take practice if you haven’t been able to hear music before. To improve your enjoyment of music, here are a couple of ideas to think about.
As your confidence listening to music improves, you’ll appreciate being able to make it a social hobby and an occasion to share with friends. Happy listening!
