  1. Change your sound processor microphone protectors  every three months or sooner if you live in a high humidity environment, perspire frequently or notice a change in sound quality.

  2. Thinking of upgrading your sound processor? It’s important to discuss this first with your hearing care professional.

  3. It’s good to know how to pair your sound processor with your wireless accessories.

  4. Don’t forget to insure your sound processor against loss or theft.

  5. Travelling with a Cochlear implant can be easy but it’s important to plan ahead. There are a few simple steps you can take with your device that will make your holiday or business trip stress free.

  6. Use your drying box and if travelling, use a small sealed plastic container with the dry brik inside.

  7. If eligible, keep your Australian Hearing card current for easy access to parts and repairs.
  8. Investigate the roll out of NDIS in your state – you may be eligible for financial support of your Cochlear implant through NDIS.
