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.
Yup. Many people are reporting the same limitation with AudioLink. It definitely needs to be close to the processor. And in some situations, clipped on a shirt under our chin still loses connection to one of two bilateral processors. Single sided users are clipping it on the side of their CI. That is not helpful for bilateral CI users.
The AudioLink’s heavy dependence on line of sight is similar to Roger. Both lose signals very quickly when line of sight is lost, even indoors with bouncing signals.
The Artone BT neckloop does not have that problem. I can listen to an audiobook on my phone while the phone is in our living room and I move between rooms, go upstairs, go downstairs and even go out onto our patio. So much better signal integrity. I will be curious to read your review after you try it. It will be a great match for being bimodal.
This is why I am very curious about Rondo 3 and its telecoil adapter since it does not have a built in telecoil. I stream audio often and my favorite device is the Artone. Of course, I am hopeful Med-El will release updates to the AudioLink so it works better. And I REALLY hope Med-El releases a direct to processor streaming solution before too long.
I agree. Printed manuals are not sufficient. Access to all of the info found in the printed manuals when we are away from home is possible by downloading the manuals in pdf format. Processor manuals are not on Med-El’s website. Accessory manuals sometimes are. Quick guides are. And there is info in their support section.
I wish the entire processor manual was on Med-El ‘s website in pdf downloadable format. I like having them on my phone. When I find them, I download them.
@MED-EL Moderator Is this something Med-El will consider? The manuals are very helpful but not practical to carry around.
