      @Subbu Welcome to HearPeers and wishing your son the very best.   There are several options but as a Teacher of the Deaf and bilateral CI user I would caution you about using remote mics extensively at home.  Since the goal is to be able to hear well with the processor alone, it is important to listen with the processor alone.   That being said, with Rondo 2 you can use…. 1)  Rondo 2 mini battery pack with Roger X (02) plugged into the Euro port along with a Roger transmitter.  Rondo 2 stays on M.  No neckloop.  This would provide the best audio quality but requires using the cabled mini battery pack. 2). Phonak transmitter with Roger neckloop receiver and processor on MT (It is important that the audiologist set the Rondo 2 to have link monitoring features turned off to avoid a ticking sound when on MT/T).  Telecoil encounters electromagnetic interference which sounds like buzzing in some situations.  And the volume level will vary as your son moves and the distance between the neckloop and his Rondo 2 varies. 3). Artone Mic with Artone neckloop and processor on MT (It is important that the audiologist set the Rondo 2 to have link monitoring features turned off to avoid a ticking sound when on MT/T).  Telecoil encounters electromagnetic interference which sounds like buzzing in some situations.  And the volume level will vary as your son moves and the distance between the neckloop and his Rondo 2 varies.  This is less expensive but does not offer the same  level of microphone technology as Roger offers.

      Hi my son is a bilateral CI recipient and he uses Sonata with Rondo2 processor. I am looking for accessories that will help my son hear my voice (and any other person's voice who speaks to him directly) much better. Something like neckloop, roger, audio link or FM system at home. Please note that I am not looking at connecting a phone or TV to his processors, but my voice. Kindly suggest.

      Hi @Lisa YI lost all hearing in my right ear about 4 years ago and was implanted one year ago. Bass and drums are the most easily recognized instruments and everything else can be a hot mess but no matter what I still hear so much better. I know this is vague but my life is so much easier bec. of my implant. I would def. suggest exploring the potentials but for me again hearing music in my deaf ear through the CI will never be the same but at this same time I find it to be a minor miracle.

      Hi @RachaelI lost all hearing in my right ear after returning from a family vacation / was taken the hospital for vertigo and was never treated for sudden hearing loss. For about 3 years I suffered from tinnitus that truly wreaked havoc on me both mentally and physically. Just over a year ago I had the CI surgery and for the month I had to wait for healing etc. my tinnitus was at its worst as I'm sure the surgery "rattled the cage". On day one of activation as long as their is sound coming into the CI I don't hear it at all. It was def. the first step to recovery. I wish you all the best !

      @Lauren I’m sorry you are experiencing the same clicking. Unfortunately, the fix that worked for my Rondo2s does not appear to work for the Rondo3, as mentioned by @John Crozier. I certainly hope @MED-EL Moderator will be able to provide some insight into fixing the issue you Rondo3 users are experiencing. Thank you @Mary Beth for posing the question to Med-El.
