In brief: Can hear too much
By the time someone needs a cochlear implants there are not many drawbacks.
You cannot hear without the device, but probably did not hear very much before the device was implanted. Probably biggest drawback is that most people recommend not getting a MRI if you needed one with the cochlear implant in place because of the magnet that is implanted. The magnet can be removed if necessary.
