Designed for people with hearing loss in one ear, that can't be treated with traditional hearing aids, our CROS and BiCROS hearing aids offer better all-around hearing. In CROS and BiCROS hearing aids, a CROS RIC transmitter is worn behind the unaidable ear. It detects sound, processes it and transmits it to the hearing aid on the other side, allowing the wearer to hear sounds from both sides. Significant amounts of sound that otherwise would be lost are captured and delivered in a way the user can understand.
Our CROS feature is ideal for people with normal hearing in one ear and unaidable hearing loss in the other. Sounds from the unaidable side are sensed by the microphones on the CROS RIC and transmitted wirelessly to the other side.
Our BiCROS solution is designed for those with hearing loss in one ear and an unaidable loss in the other. Sound from the unaidable side is sensed by the CROS RIC, and transmitted to the instrument on the other side, which amplifies the sounds from both sides.
