Advanced Bionics Neptune
IP68 cochlear implant sound processor

 Advanced Bionics (AB) is committed to improving quality of life for the deaf and those with significant hearing loss by developing the most advanced cochlear implant systems in the world.  AB and Product Creation Studio (PCS) designed and developed Neptune, the first wearable go-anywhere waterproof processor.  For the past 50+ years, water could and would destroy $15,000+ processors leaving users functionally deaf and financially burdened.  As a consequence, users would remove their processor/s and be deaf in wet/dirty environments.  Neptune gives new and unprecedented freedom to hear in environments the rest of us take for granted.
