    Audiostream Inpressions

    I've been using Audiostream for just over a week and I can't believe the difference it makes. I don't think I've heard music this good since I was 15 ( a long time ago) and it's so much better for use with the phone.

    Step by step AudioStream and iPhone

    I just followed your instructions and it connected perfectly!! Thank you. I am a new Audiostream user and did not know I could use my iPhone as a remote mic.

    Upgrade to Rondo3?

    @Jared Charney That's good that you can't tell a huge difference between the Sonnet and Rondo 3. The difference between Sonnet and Rondo 1 is huge. But, it took me over a year to realize just how large the difference was, while my brain adjusted. I wore the Rondo 1 primarily until I was able to capitalize on the benefits the sonnet has over it. As for the clip--I made my own with the Rondo 1. It likely won't work for short hair, though. I have my own thin fishing wire that I loop through the notch and I attach a small sized bobby pin to it. It works GREAT and is easier on my hair. The Ron

    @Jared Charney I know. And maybe we will get lucky and ASM 3 will become available soon. But I imagine the pandemic definitely isn’t helping the process if it involves research with CI users in person.

    My surgery was in January__activation February 9. Very happy, but still learning to navigate and balance CI and hearing aid. Finding that I hear better with Sonnet 2 vs Rondo.

    Upgrade to Rondo3?

    @Salik That is a difficult decision. If you are willing to either use the mini battery pack with cable to Rondo 3 or a power pack with the USB cable to Rondo 3, you would always be able to extend your battery life without “down time”. I am not interested in doing that everyday. So I gave up my wish for Rondo 3 and I will choose Sonnet 2. After using AudioStream with my Sonnet 1, I am excited to choose Sonnet 2. I really love streaming music with AudioStream.

    That’s very interesting @Viola DeVinney. The Sonnet 2 and Rondo 3 share the same sound settings. Have you tried replacing the Rondo 3 mic cover to see if things sound clearer?

    I have a Rondo 3; I like that it is off the ear and it has a thin wire and clip I can attach to my clothing. However, the Sonnet 2 is so much clearer.

    Welcome to the group @Viola DeVinney 😁 I was bimodal up until December of 2020. It was wonderful! I too noticed that I hear better with the Sonnet (1 & 2) than the Rondo. Feel free to ask questions!

    @Mary Beth Thanks for reminding me to follow up! The Rondo 3 test went well--for only using it for a little while, I was able to comfortably determine that the quality of sound/microphones is very close to my Sonnet, and there's absolutely no doubt the Rondo 3 is substantially better than the Rondo 1. I think the only improvement of my Sonnet over the Rondo 3 is the mic placement. I was able to test this in the lobby of Mass Eye and Ear, where my audiologist and I (and some helpful security officers) created a noisy environment for me to switch between the Rondo 1, Rondo 3, and Son

    Upgrade to Rondo3?

    @AliU83 That is great that Mass Eye & Ear are allowing you to test out the Rondo 3 with your audiologist at an appt. terrific! Presently Rondo 3 is using ASM 2 with its dual mics. Exactly like Sonnet 1 and Sonnet 2. Depending on the location of your internal magnet, Rondo 3 should perform very well in noise. When ASM 3 is FDA approved and released in the US, Sonnet 2 and Rondo 3 will have even better features for hearing well in noise using their new computer chip and adaptive intelligence. Let us know how your test run with Rondo 3 goes.

    @MarkRichards Congratulations on your CI! Dual mics help with hearing in noise. Wishing you the best!
