CROS P: A Paradise solution for UHL

CROS stands for ‘Contralateral Routing of Signal’. A CROS system consists of two parts:

  • the CROS device with a microphone to pick up sounds and voices from the poorer ear and wirelessly transmit them to the hearing aid and
  • the hearing aid to receive the signal from the unaidable ear and play it to your hearing ear.

CROS P features include:

  • Designed specifically for unilateral hearing loss

  • Proven Paradise performance

  • Universal connectivity to smartphones, TV, Roger™ microphones and more

  • Hands-free phone calls with own voice pick-up 

  • Easy to use

  • Two models to choose from: rechargeable and replaceable zinc-air battery

Connecting you to the things you love the most

Your CROS P system can connect to more than 6800 smartphone models² (iOS®, Android™) plus Bluetooth® enabled devices, turning your hearing solution into wireless headphones. By simply tapping your ear, you can even take phone calls, pause and resume streamed music and activate voice assistant apps.

Unilateral hearing loss

Although hearing loss often affects both ears, it is not uncommon for only one side to be affected. Unilateral hearing loss (or UHL) is when hearing loss is only present in one ear. CROS P is a solution which transmits sound and voices from one side to the other, so your hearing ear can hear for both ears.
