    Find my processor.

    @Hearing Again Med-El does not presently have a find my processor tracker. They do not discuss future tech until release date so we will just have to keep an eye out. I heard about tiny labels for clothing and purchased a sheet of stickers with my first name and phone number on them. I have these stickers on.... backs of my Fine Tuner tops of my dry kits rechargeable battery chargers rechargeable battery wallets travel cases This way if I accidentally leave something behind while traveling and a kind person finds it, she can call me. I know parents who put these small labels on their children’s processors as well. https://www.kiddotags.com/mini-slim-clothing-tags.html

    Got my Skinit!
  6. I went to a cochlear implant support group a few days ago thinking it was just a manufacturer neutral support group mixer. Well, it wasn’t. It was one of Med-el’s competators. After hearing all the things their models do, I still like my med-el better. But one feature they have that I wish I med-el could have is “Find my processor”. In case you loose it, you can go online to find out exactly where is Ilis. I have this for my iPhone and needed it on more than one occasion. Does anyone know if Mel-el has this feature or is planning on having this in the future?

    Lack of auto logging Rondo 2

    Thank you Mary Beth for the information that that the RONDO 2 is now being sold in the USA, I have been checking weekly plus contacting my Audiologist & MedEl rep weekly with no news. So this is wonderful info for me seeing I am using RONDO 1 with number 4 magnet for the last 3 years which works well but at about 12 hours I start with Head aches. Anyway wonderful news and I will be in contact with my support team yesterday. Please have a wonderful Christmas to all that support this wonderful tool and use MedEl products!

    Blushing, make that Rondo, but on second thought Rambo woulda been a cool name

    Lack of auto logging Rondo 2

    Thanks for your reply, Mary Beth. I found a side-by-comparison table of Sonnet and Rambo 2 (and as I recall also Rambo 1). For the life of me I can no longer find the web page to verify its source. Most of the features were the same. Only single mic in Rambo 2 and no wireless charger in Sonnet are ones I can recall . Also, the auto logging difference. Great info on Rondo 2 availability
  12. I second the wishes of @Mary Beth ! Wishing each of you a beautiful holiday season and a happy hearing 2019!!

    @Hearing Again I understand completely although your musical skills far exceed my own. Check out Beats of Cochlea on YouTube. For the past several years Med-El has run a contest for a paid trip to participate in it. My friend @VeroNika participated a couple of years ago. She is an amazing pianist who composes her own music!

    Guide for a music rehabilitation: step by step.

    I was slated to go to a school for the performing arts before I chose to go to law school. I was offered a full scholarship as a violin forte. But, after receiving a full scholarship to St Johns Law School in NY, I decided to go there, get my law degree and continue my true passion of music after that. Well, three days after becoming a lawyer, I was forced to undergo the first of what would turn out to be 13 brain surgeries for a brain tumor. I was still able to hear well immediately after, but had to learn all my body skills again...walking, talking, seeing, dexterity, cognitive, and everything else. And by the time I did, the hearing problems started...never to resume my passion for music, never picking up my violin again. My violin sits on display in my living room as you walk into it. I see it every day, but never thought I’d someday be able to play it again. I had played it in concerts, my church folk group, theatrical venues in both acting on stage while playing it, and it the orchestra pit, and most importantly, for a one person audience, ME! Reading these articles about music put tears in my eyes, as does writing this. To thing, I’m going to soon be able to hear it sing again on my shoulder...thank you so much for sharing all this.

    Lack of auto logging Rondo 2

    Hi @Charles and welcome. The Rondo 2 is available now in the US. Datalogging is not always needed with adults. It basically tells our audiologists how long we are using the processor and possibly which program we use. None of that info was needed in my journey. I was using the processor all waking moments. I actually was not aware that datalogging was not available in Rondo 2. The ease of use of Rondo 2 is a huge advantage in my opinion. Good luck!
  19. I am new to this blog so I hope I'm adding a post properly. I am scheduled to be implanted soon and am considering Sonnet and Rondo 2. I'm an elderly man and the Rondo 2 simplicity is appealing. In selling my audiologist on the idea I anticipate the lack autologging with the Rondo to be concern. I'm curious whether there's an alternate way to have such logging and why it was not included in Rondo 2. Like everyone I'm curious as to an availability date in the U.S. Thanks for any input

    Will check that out. Is it only PC based because I downloaded the app on my iPhone and I’m unable to fill anything out other than my name and county and can not scroll lower to the other boxes?
  22. As we get ready to spend our holiday week with our wonderful extended family, I find myself thinking about the first family gatherings post CI and post bilateral CI. I was so tired! The listening demands were challenging and went on for hours and hours. 😊 My friend @Joan encouraged me and promised that the following year it would be so much easier! And she was right! For all of our HPs members who are early in their CI or bilateral CI journeys, hang in there. Take breaks. Be kind to yourself. And trust that next year, it will be so much easier. Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic 2019!

    I’m glad you will be all set up @Dave in Pittsburgh. The Rondo 2 roll out requires training with the new software Maestro 7. Not all CI centers/audiologists have been trained yet. Hopefully Med-El and the CI centers will get this completed soon so everyone with Rondo 2 can get programmed. I am excited to read of everyone’s experiences with Rondo 2 when you all get to start using it.

    I just want to say a big thanks to my CI Center and my audiologist. I have read on H P individuals going to their CI Center and not having the tool for the magnet and cables I sent an email to my audiologist and she advised me we have everything not to worry

    @Hearing Again Have you checked out the free app ABCLIX? It is my favorite app for aural rehab for early journeys.

    @Kylie I actively trained musical pitch. I posted about my favorite apps for that here. I did not start actively training music right away with my right ear because it wasn’t ready for that yet. I believe our brains need repeated success to learn so I listened to music and paid attention to the features that were accessible to me at the time and then started training later on. But everyone’s journey is unique. Each of my own ears were unique, especially for music. My left ear loved music before speech!
