“I’ve been hearing about this N6, Nucleus 6, processor for a long time and all of the cool features that it comes with,” LaQuatra said.
The Nucleus 6 will be the newest sound processor on LaQuatra’s implant. It has the ability to
drown out excessive noise in a more advanced way and can use Bluetooth.
“For her implant type that she has, she was implanted when she was 4, so the Bluetooth is just recently available,” said Deborrah Johnston, audiologist at the DePaul School for Hearing and Speech, where LaQuatra was a student for three years.
