|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hearing Loss, Sensorineural||Device: MED-EL SYNCHRONY/SYNCHRONY PIN Cochlear Implant System||Not Applicable|
Fifty (50) subjects, 18 years of age and older, will be implanted across the United States and Canada. Subjects with moderate to profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss will be implanted with the MED-EL SYNCHRONY/SYNCHRONY PIN Cochlear Implant System. .
Limited benefit from amplification is defined by test scores of 60% correct or less in the ear to be implanted (70% or less in the nonimplanted ear) on monosyllabic words in quiet. Subjects will be followed for twelve (12) months post-activation of the SONNETEAS Audio Processor.

- Device: MED-EL SYNCHRONY/SYNCHRONY PIN Cochlear Implant System
Subjects will be implanted with the MED-EL SYNCHRONY/SYNCHRONY PIN Cochlear Implant System with +FLEX28 or +FLEXSOFT electrode arrays. Subjects will be fit with the SONNETEAS (ear-level) and/or RONDO (single-unit) external audio processors.Other Names:
- SYNCHRONY +FLEXSOFT
- SYNCHRONY +FLEX28
- Percent correct words recognition in quiet in implanted ear [ Time Frame: Up to twelve (12 months) post-activation ]CNC (Consonant Nucleus Consonant) word scores will be calculated as percent correct at baseline through 6 months and reported as percentage points improved.
- Percent correct of words identified for sentences in noise in implanted ear [ Time Frame: Up to twelve (12 months) post-activation ]AzBio sentence recognition in noise scores will be calculated as percent correct of words in each sentence at baseline through 6 months and reported as percentage points improved.
- Patient reported improvement in everyday listening conditions [ Time Frame: Up to twelve (12 months) post -activation ]APHAB (ABBREVIATED PROFILE OF HEARING AID BENEFIT) and SSQ (Spatial and Qualities of Hearing) questionnaires will be used to assess subjective outcomes and reported as improvements from baseline to 6 months post-activation.
- Number and proportion of subjects experiencing device related adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to twelve (12 months) post-activation ]Adverse events will be collected and reported throughout the duration of the study.
- Residual low frequency hearing [ Time Frame: Up to twelve (12) months post-activation ]HEARRING scale will be used to calculate the percent of hearing preservation for each subject. This data will be summarized through 6 months post-activation.
