Get ready to make waves

New! Aqua+ accessory is now also available in a compact size

Welcome the water this summer

The Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor is splashproof* so you know there’s no need to worry about getting caught in the rain or getting sweaty during a work out or bike ride.

But what if your child loves swimming or splashing in the bath?
Or if you like to listen to the news while you take your morning shower?

You can make your Nucleus 7 Sound Processor waterproof* with Aqua+. So get beach-ready and check out Aqua+ now. You can even enjoy snorkelling because you can submerge your Aqua+ in up to three metres* of water for two hours.

Teresa simply loves anything that has to do with water. She can do anything she wants now and is not limited in any way.

Small is beautiful

The Nucleus 7 Sound Processor is our smallest and lightest sound processor and even more so with the compact rechargeable batteries. Whether you prefer the compact batteries yourself or for your child’s smaller ears, you want to enjoy all your favourite activities without compromising your hearing. 

New! Compact Aqua+ option

After listening to feedback from our recipients, we are excited to tell you that the Aqua+ accessory is now available in a compact size so you can choose waterproof* along with the compact battery for ultimate flexibility.

Summer will be here before you know it. Find out more about Aqua+ and decide whether you prefer the compact or standard size.
