  1. Today
  2. I understand! Hope I don’t have that much of an adjustment from ASM 2 to 3. Who knows? I just got my new equipment and some new mapping. Was to go back in three weeks for more tweaking and the pandemic struck. Can’t see much of a difference as to hearing in noise etc. at this point but was warned that with EAS (new to me) improvement could take a while. Need to work with Audi more. She is new to me but very experienced. I met you some years ago at an assistive listening session with Jeff Campanya (sp?) in Raleigh. Your experience and willingness to share have helped me often! When I see your name I pay attention! Thank you!

  4. @Anne WGC Congratulations on your upgrade! How do you find the Sonnet 2 compared to your OPUS2/RONDO1 processors? My comment is just my thoughts about what works best for me. I did not like the adjustment from using Sonnet 1 in ASM 1 to using Sonnet 1 in ASM 2. I had to get used to the Sonnet all over again. Two adjustments just because ASM 2 was not released in the US when Med-El released the Sonnet 1 here although the Sonnet 1 was released in Europe with ASM 2 active. I had no choice about this because that was the timing of my surgery and activation but I promised myself never to choose to upgrade to a processor in the future until the features that go with the new processor are also available in the US, like in Europe. Right now Sonnet 2 with ASM 3 is released in Europe. Sonnet 2 is still using ASM 2 in the US. So it is just my personal preference to reduce the number of adjustments required when upgrading processors. If I can wait until features are all approved in the US before upgrading, I will opt to do that.
  5. Mary Beth—Went with Sonnet 2’s EAS hoping for better hearing in noise. My Opuses and Rondo 1’s were 6 and 7 years out before I could get insurance approval! Just noticed the change in the warranty. . Disappointing to say the least. Please clarify/explain your statement about not filing your insurance claim until ASM 3 available in the US. Thanks.
  6. @Jewel For me in TEAMS I just tap the video and select the captions. It is helpful when there is a bad audio connection. In our region lots of families have very slow, limited internet service. But not all accounts have the live captions option.
  7. @Mary Beth No I haven't tried Artone with Teams as I hear everyone but the male colleague well. Even my coworker's 5 year old comes through clearly. But I will try Artone on Monday and I will see how that goes. Will also check if the captions are enabled in the TEAMS app.
  8. @Jewel A friend just ordered CozyPhones to use as headphones with her Rondos for video sessions.
  9. @Jewel The Sonnet rechargeable batteries slowly lose their charge when not used. Just remove them from the charger and charge them up in a few months. Have you tried using the Artone with TEAMS? Our TEAMS version has live captions as an option in the app, not the web version.
  10. Last week
  11. Since I have been working from home I have been using my Rondo2 exclusively. I'm wondering whether my rechargeable batteries for my Sonnet will deteriorate as I haven't used them in a month and they may be parked for another month. I use Microsoft Teams with my department. We are connected the entire work day. I hear my coworkers pretty well. However, the lone male in the group connects earphones to the laptop and I find it hard to understand him much of the time unless I am actually looking at him. He also speaks nasally. Not sure how to handle that one.
  12. Focusing on issues related to being a CI or HA user during the pandemic

  14. @runner6771 I am glad you are so happy with your Sonnet 2. By far the easiest way to stream audio to your HA and Sonnet 2 would be to use a BT neckloop, like the Artone 3 MAX BT neckloop. Both your HA and your Sonnet 2 would need to be on MT or T setting to access your telecoil. While this solution allows you to stream all audio to both your HA and CI and is truly hands free for phone calls, it is not utilizing the internal receivers in your HA nor Sonnet 2. It is BT from device to neckloop and induction (telecoil) from neckloop to HA/CI. Using a BT splitter may introduce an echo. The audio would travel from device to HA via BT but that same audio would need to travel from device to AudioLink intermediary device to Sonnet. If you test out ways to do this, I would be very interested in reading about your experiences.
  15. @Mary Beth my wife has made several masks and sent them to our daughter who is a physician working in a hospital in NH. She is working in the ICU but required to reuse n95 masks as there are not enough. She used a pattern from the hospital and it had the elastic around the ears. That’s probably not best for Sonnet users but it’s better than nothing.
  16. First let me so that no one is happier with their sonnet 2 CI than me. I able to use my phone and also my macbook pro and have great hearing in my Cochlear implant ear. Of course I want more. What i want to be able to do is also use blue tooth that i have with my other ear that has a hearing aid. My question is how do i do this. Do i get a blue tooth splitter that I've heard about. Can I do it with mIdi on my Macbook pro has anyone solved this problem? Help Please, Craig
  17. Tonight I sat down and figured out how to sew some basic face coverings. Our community looks like face coverings will be added to the list of social distancing rules for any time someone is out of their home (taking care of essential business, getting fresh air while maintaining 6 feet of separation, walking the dog). I played with 2 different designs for the elastic bands. One that went all around the head and another that looped on both ears. I am presently wearing my Rondo processors and the winning design is the loops on both ears.

    Noisy sound

    Thanks for advised 🙏🏻🌺

    Noisy sound

    @iHM24 My guess is the telecoil is picking up some interference. Next time it happens walk into other rooms or outside and see if it disappears .

    Noisy sound

    No at home, now I’m outside and sound gone! sometimes happen maybe one per month I noticed that! like that I’m wondering if anyone notice this sound... However, that sound in both side when I changed settings to M sounds gone!
  21. Mary Beth

    Noisy sound

    @iHM24 Does the sound happen on the T setting when you are outside?

    Noisy sound

    Dear colleagues sometimes I noticed a noisy sound “tick tick” when I choose tele-coil setting on Sonnet when I turned it off sounds gone! anyone notice same issue?
  23. Thank you @Terry Bush and @Mary Beth Very reassuring to know. It was unnerving when it happened. I will be extra cautious clearing the bats out of the cave from here on.
  24. I took it easy when blowing my nose after that and it happened several more times. It took about 6 months for it to disappear and now it doesn’t happen at all. It just takes time for the swelling to do completely away and for everything to sclerose down so that contact can’t be broken.
  25. I am sorry this happened to you @Dan W. You can find reports online about this potential issue related to nose blowing and CIs. I hope it does not happen to you again. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/coa.12042
  26. Ok, well don't blow your nose hard... even if there is no discomfort. Audi had me to gently rub the area where the magnet is... after a few minutes the ci is working again. Well see if there is any long term issues from it.
  27. This just happened to me... @Terry Bush what was your result? Plan of action?
