    Periodic Static on Sonnet 2

    Thanks. I will switch ears to see if the problem switches. All my cables are home.

    Periodic Static on Sonnet 2

    @KittKatz Static sounds are usually related to the coil cable. If you have a spare cable, switch it out and see if that solves the problem. Then contact your CSR about replacing the defective cable under warranty.

    Periodic Static on Sonnet 2

    Today my left Sonnet 2 gets static sounds for several seconds. It does not seem to be related to my Bluetooth. Anyone else have this problem?

    One week later experience

    Yep. We were looking at something similar as well. But waiting until we have everything in hand to see just what all is there.

    One week later experience

    @John F The countdown is getting closer!! I use this storage case. Works great. Holds all my extra pieces. https://www.containerstore.com/s/storage/storage-drawers/3-case-storage-chest/12d?productId=10022603

    One week later experience

    24 hours until activation finally. MedEl is out of the Sonnet 2s in Anthracite as I picked originally, so for the time being the plan to to begin with the Rondo 3 then in a week or so will get the other processor in and all that. Guess we’ll see if there is indeed any residual hearing since I don’t believe there is and get things set up. Tempted to get a toolbox to hold all the gadgets and doodads but need to see just how much there is!

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Yes. She gave me a bigger size. That was the first thing we tried. Then we did the injections. When I took my hair down last night, the cochlear stayed put for about 5-8 minutes. So, maybe in time, it will work.

    Research experiences

    @Kylie Will you tell us about your most recent research experiences?

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    @Toni Moize I am sorry this is happening to you. Have you discussed a different magnet strength with your audiologist?
  12. I had my surgery on March 31st. The cochlear is not sticking to my head. I have to wear my hair a certain way. The doctor suggested injecting my head with steroids. He says my skull is to thick. Has anybody else had this problem? What did you do?

    AudioLink- greatly expanding the BT connection

    I agree with you. Those A2DP converter apps degrade sound quality. I don’t use them. The audio quality is much better than using those A2DP converter apps. Since the BT adapter is plugged into the AudioLink, the AudioLink is only handling sending the audio to the processors. @Hilary Beaumont Brown @Dennisjbr- your thoughts?

    AudioLink- greatly expanding the BT connection

    Are you still using apps like BT Mono with this set up? I disliked that without corded the sound quality is less than with corded to device. I actually prefer a cord to device from AL except new phones don't have the option. I really disliked having to turn the app on in addition to the audiolink AND the actual audio file Im listening to. Corded just seemed so much easier.

    WOW moments from this month

    Today I had 2 more WOW moments. I was taking my 4 month old nephew on a walk in his stroller. It was really windy and the wind noise in my Sonnets was loud and constant. Then I heard a gentleman loud and clear from behind me say “passing on the left”. I steered the stroller to the right and he biked on by saying “have a nice day”. Smile. It’s the little unexpected exchanges that make me smile.

    Rondo 3 Approval in Canada

    HI I am also in Canada and had my surgery in Toronto at Sunnybrook. I see that BrownieLove20 said she received her Rondo3 in the mail. I didn't realize they came in the mail. I thought I would get it at Sunnybrook. Is this usual that it comes in the mail? How long after surgery do you receive it then?

    COVID and our CI MAPping appts

    Being bilateral is terrific isn’t it? So happy for you @Hilary Beaumont Brown!
  22. @Hilary Beaumont Brown The journey to CIs is a tough ride for most of us. Like you, I am so thankful of this gift of hearing with CIs. Thanks for sharing your story.

    AudioLink- greatly expanding the BT connection

    @Hilary Beaumont Brown scroll up to the beginning of this topic @Dennisjbr You mentioned ordering a different BT adapter. Have you tested it out? Pros/cons?
  24. Mary Beth

    Corded connection of AL to phones w/o headphone jack?

    @Hilary Beaumont Brown You can purchase a BT adapter that has a 3.5 headphone jack. Have the phone FORGET the AudioLink. Pair the BT adapter to the phone. Use a 3.5 to 2.5 cable to connect the AudioLink to the BT adapter. I will tag you in a topic about this.

    Hi Everyone

    @Mary Beth surgery couldn’t have gone any better. I’m always slow to start recovery so I was there for an hour longer than expected but have been home sleeping it all off for 5-6 hours or so. Wasn’t expecting the surgeon to give me a stuffed elephant, but it was a nice surprise. I love that MED-EL does that for people!

    COVID and our CI MAPping appts

    I have had very few appts for my second ear. Surgery was 3 days before all elective surgeries were canceled. We delayed activation until 3 months post op. I had activation then 2 mappings... that's it. One year post-activation appt on the 23rd. Luckily I have done exceptionally well with second ear and by my last appt at 4 months (?) it was outperforming the older ear. I know it could use some fine tuning but I knew my CI centre was in a hot spot and while I had all faith in my team to keep me safe I opted to wait until we were no longer under stay at home orders. Can't wait to get int the boo

    When were you ready to pursue a cochlear implant?

    For me it took quite awhile. My loss probably started in early elementary but went missed and slowly progressed until I was identified with moderate severe progressive loss at 18. By 30 it was profound in basically the whole speech banana with some residual lows. I got to the point where my old hearing aids were giving me so little I couldn't tell the difference between having them on or not. 0% word recognition with them. My aud said we could TRY a stronger pair and get an FM and see if that helped but it was SO much money and she wasn't confident it would help much esp as my loss was still
