    There are frustrating parts of this journey for sure. People do not tend to post much about their frustrations. That is kind of unfortunate because others may benefit from realizing that even long time successful CI users have had frustrating moments.

    Unloading the dishwasher was terrible at first. I moved in slow motion, gently setting each plate down as gingerly as possible. Now I clank around just like everyone else! But it was terrible for awhile!

    Favorite music at the moment

    @Megan L. Not a true favorite, but the Pentatonix version isn't bad. I prefer Rufus Wainright, though. My favorite Cohen song is Anthem.

    @Mary Beth I think it would be helpful. And it would help us be supportive too. Another Wowish thing from today: I went out at noon to a supermarket where they have a good salad bar. At checkout the woman on the cash register asked me how long I'd had my CIs, and said that her husband has had them for eleven years. It's kind of cool to run into people who know what those things on my head are!

    Oh, I do. Individual days can be frustrating, but if i didn't trust the journey I would never have gone ahead with the second CI.

    Hi @Mary Beth, I can see and download your video. And was also able to do it myself (it just needs to be less than 511 MB, so nothing too big ) I wonder if it was a temporary problem - @Daniel the Stranger are you able to download Mary Beth's link now? I will also upload it below to see if you can view it. Kind regards, Mary 372DE603-6E11-4BEF-AD5B-554760C3226B (3).MOV

    How cool are they @Mary Beth? I'm sorry for derailing this thread but I couldn't resist!

    @Mary Featherston I don’t know if the same trick will work with Rondo 2s. The Rondo 2 has the magnet positioned on the bottom of the unit against our heads. The Rondo 1 has the magnet positioned inside. This may alter the strength of the magnet on the top of the unit. Also the Rondo has a flatter top design. Yes the flat stereo speakers of the CozyPhones just adhere to my Rondo 1. It works for my friend, @Sheila Vieira too. One side of those speakers is blue and the other side is black. Blue goes toward our processor mic. I am amazed that sound doesn’t leak out to others but we tested it and it doesn’t.

    Ha... come back from badly lurking/forgetting about the forum again (I'm alive!) to stumble across such a pretty kitty, and an amusingly on-point tangent for those of us who don't hear. It's funny, since I don't really think I feel the need for actual 'breaks', exactly, but I'm so with some of you in simply not bothering to put my ears on for a while if I don't need to hear, just totally at ease in the silence until I either leave for the day, or start doing something that requires sound! Heck, sometimes on my days off, unless I bring up a show or movie or run out or have a visit, I can go half the day without using them! That said, to give a 'nod' to the thread topic, there were a couple cool moments lately since I've been gone that you'll appreciate - number one was realizing it's been ages since I actually went to the theater to see a movie... just preoccupied, or got busy, or nothing I wanted to see, or right at the beginning of things, knew it wouldn't sound the best. Now, though, I knew things sounded better and kinda missed going, so I took myself to see Ralph Wrecks the Internet, for fun. And, honestly, wow, it was kinda Loud!! ;D I even turned it down just a tiny notch with my remote. Still used the Capti-view, of course, and hard to tell sometimes, but pretty sure I caught more words on my own before I had actually 'read' them. So, cool. The other moment was on Thanksgiving... I got stuck with the morning shift at the store (yay, retail), but it actually wasn't so bad... dead all day since people were home, or on the grocery side of the store instead of my department, then got to run out of there to family dinner before the night sales started! But part of the day, the "prep crew" was getting ready for the night sales by going down one of the huge main aisles, and could hear the distinct 'shhhh' sound much louder as they put plastic (cling)-wrap around the sale displays. It faded after they got a couple departments down from me, then they stopped. A moment later, I'm puzzled thinking I faintly hear it again, thinking they were done, and go out in the main aisle, and I see, allll the way down almost on the other side of the store from me, someone plastic-wrapping another display! ;D My mom also swears I hear her better in different situations or without looking, but... yeah... sometimes it's hard to tell for yourself, or seems to vary, or just staying positive when you feel like you're 'coasting' or not being a 'good user', still not hearing well with certain things at all. But since this is just the WOW thread, I'm sticking to my good stories, and just saying hi again! *waves!*

    @Mary Beth well, I'm not sure if I will be comfortable using a headband. For now I'm going to pass, luckily my trip is with family coming from my home country so it won't be boring at all.

    I'm veterinary doctor and finally can use the electronic stethoscope with the red cap cable (90% audio and 10% Mic). The stethoscope is a Japanese one and very old but with an incredible sound quality (so sensitive that it also picks up noises of friction with the skin and even voices of the environment).

    Fantastic, he is all play all the time he is up. Now that we are talking about him, I realised that I can hear him breathing through his mouth when he is sleeping. He sleeps on top of the pantry next to the fridge not too far from the couch but still. Next to where he is sitting is the dinning table and next to the dinning table is the couch. I could hear him breathing through his mouth just recently because my new processor is facing his bed which is next to the fridge on top of the pantry. He is growing fast, he is now 6 months old.

    Sounds of autumn

    I had a cool Wow moment this morning. I was walking from the house to my car to go to work and a flock of Canada geese flew overhead, on their way south. HONK! HONK HONK.

    I love the crunching leaves as well. I’m quite surprised how loud they sound.
