ADHEAR is MED-EL’s revolutionary new bone conduction system. What’s different about it? There is no implant involved and instead, it simply sticks onto your skin behind the ear. ADHEAR—Stick. Click. Hear.
@Enegra I am so sorry for the multiple complications you have experienced to hear and communicate with others. It's not right! After reading what you have shared, I feel fortunate that my implant activated and works as designed. That does not mean everything is fine. I'm like everybody else. I have to really, really work at hearing and understanding people. Ever since I lost my hearing in my left ear in 2019 my balance has been off. It's gotten better, but I have a hard time walking a straight line. I have problems understanding consonants and vowels. Still watch TV with the captions on and put the phone on speaker most of the time. Sorry I have digressed. The only thing I can suggest is to keep a daily journal. Document day, date, and time. Document pain intensity on a scale of 1 to 10. 10 being the worst pain level. Document the duration of what you are experiencing. Document the number of similar episodes. Keep your journal in a small, spiral notebook, something easy for you to carry. Have it close to you so when something happens you can write down what specifically happened and what you were doing. Keep a current copy on your computer to give your care providers so they can see clearly what you are experiencing. Please don't stop communicating with people. Send updates to this forum. You have peeps in your corner that care a lot about you. Continue to share what you are going through. I really feel for you.

Reporting in since these two AudioStreams hit the sweet spot of configuring/connecting with my iPhone 12 mini the other day after several times of repeating the forget this device in accessibility/hearing devices and then returning to AudioKey2 app to configure all over again due to many disconnections.
They continue to work splendidly now!!! For days!!! Not one disconnection. They are performing perfectly.
Why that did not happen all the other times I configured and connected using exactly the same steps and receiving SUCCESS message in AudioKey2 and connected plus battery displays in iPhone accessibility/hearing devices, I do not know.
My advice to anyone who is experiencing too many disconnections with AudioStream and iPhones is keep repeating the forget this device and then start all over in AudioKey2 with configuration until your AudioStreams hit the sweet spot too.
I realize it should not be this difficult nor time consuming but believe me, when they hit that sweet spot you will be so happy with how they perform.
