FineHearing® Enables 250 Unique Pitches of Sound | MED-EL


FineHearing® provides accurate place coding in the cochlea. Here the following principal is used: If two adjacent electrode contacts on the electrode array are stimulated, users hear a pitch which falls between the pitches generated by these two contacts individually. Based on this principle, FineHearing® is able to generate pitches between these contacts and allows perception of 250 pitches across the cochlea.
