  • The Cochlear Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor combines comfort and wearability with proven hearing performance.

The product was designed with a variety of battery sizes including super compact lithium ion and convenience focused Zinc Air versions. Innovative features such as removable microphone covers, infant battery lock, and a suite of custom accessories for paediatrics result in a product system that meets the needs of all user types.

Being a wearable product, colour and finish is an important consideration for Cochlear users. Providing options that were either discrete or expressive depending on the users choice was an important consideration in the design of the product. Blue Sky worked closely with Cochlear to develop a selection of product colourways which range from subtle maize and grey colours through to more expressive white and black/gold.
