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.
I have otosclerosis and bilateral cochlear implants. Even with CIs the otosclerosis continues on its own path and can cause problems with facial stimulation.
Are there any other HP members who have otosclerosis and CIs? Feel free to PM if you prefer.
I perceive full deep bass tones of music with OPUS2/Rondo and with Sonnet processors. There may be a slight advantage to the Sonnet and bass tones in music but only slight.
For me, the ability to perceive deep bass tones in music is a combination of any Med-El processor and an awesome MAP by my audiologist.
OPUS2, Rondo or Sonnet all do well with bass tones in music for me.
My OPUS2 and Rondo have the same MAPs automatically converted for each processor.
My Sonnets require a different MAP. The automatically converted MAPs did not work for me. My audiologist had to create different MAPs for my Sonnets.
I can't say it's something I noticed at all! I found the transition from Opus 2 to Sonnet fairly unremarkable (in a good way). I have never tried the Rondo. What is your experience with it, @Mary Beth?
