The Cochlear Nucleus 6 CP910 is one of two (CP910 and CP920) behind-the-ear cochlear implant processors released by Cochlear in 2013. The CP910 is the larger of the two "CP900 series" processors, but enables users to plug audio devices directly into an "accessory socket."
Both CP900-series devices may be used as traditional cochlear implant processors or may be used in a special hybrid configuration. The hybrid configuration is basically a cochlear implant combined with a traditional sound-amplifying hearing aid. Many have reported clearer, more natural sound as a result, but the hybrid configuration is only available for those with adequate hearing in the lower tones. One drawback of the hybrid configuration: water and dust resistance is limited to IP44 rather than the usual IP57 (read about IP Code). This is largely due to the addition of an acoustic speaker, which is more exposed to the elements.
