In recent Clarion systems, the HiResolution Bionic Ear and CII Bionic Ear devices have the unique ability to steer current through simultaneous stimulation of adjacent electrode contacts. The study results to date showed that most subjects perceived additional spectral channels when current is steered between electrode contacts. Notably, these data suggested that cochlear-implant users could perceive significantly more spectral information than can be delivered using existing fixed channel technology. The next phase of the study would be to examine the relationship among the number of additional spectral channels, demographics, and implant benefit in these subjects. In summary, current steering allowed place-pitch stimulation that could be tailored to the residual hearing capability of each bionic ear recipient. The increased spectral resolution provided by current steering may lead to better speech perception in noise and improved music appreciation.
