Cochlear recipients tell us they enjoy the best performance from their CI when they are relaxed and getting on with life. And one thing is for certain, when you’re relaxed and getting on with life, you’re not thinking about your sound processor, right? So, what can you do to make sure you’re not worrying about whether your Kanso® is securely attached and working well?
Much like a new pair of spectacles, it can take some minor adjustments until you are completely comfortable. Your clinician is there to help, and the following tips are a good place to start. First, make sure your Kanso is correctly positioned. This really is the most important way to ensure you enjoy the best hearing and to keep the Kanso securely attached. Take a look at our video to make sure your Kanso is in the correct position.
Some users prefer to wear a SoftWear pad attached to the back of their Kanso. If you find this makes the sound processor feel a little loose, it’s easy to change the strength of your magnet to compensate.
A well positioned Kanso with the correct magnet strength should stay securely in place for normal daily activities and light exercise. When you want to get really active (or if you’re a kid who never sits still) we recommend a Safety Line or Cochlear™ Headband. The Safety Line comes in different sizes with secure clips to attach Kanso to your clothing or hair. The Cochlear Headband goes one step further, keeping your Kanso firmly in place for the most intense physical activity.

Every day, through hot and cold weather, dust, wind and rain, your Kanso Sound Processor does its best to help you hear. So remember to return the favour with a good routine of regular care and maintenance to ensure top performance.
Take a look at our tips & tricks on routine maintenance – these apply to all Cochlear Sound Processors, including Kanso.
