The use of frequency-modulated (FM) systems with cochlear implants has steadily increased as the FM technology has become more integrated with the cochlear implant speech processor. Although noise-reduction technology is incorporated into cochlear implants, this technology cannot compensate for the reduction in the speech signal that occurs as the distance from the speaker is increased. The use of FM systems with cochlear implants is most often addressed in educational environments in which the noise level may interfere with learning new information.
