USAIS has been involved in new research looking into the experience of cochlear implant users when listening to music, and to understanding how important music is to their lives, as well as how enjoyment of, and access to, music can be maximised for cochlear implant users. We have previously combined our expertise working with the Music Department, and the Hearing and Balance Centre in this area, and together have created a new piece of software that is designed to meet the needs of cochlear implant users accessing music.
