  1. Med-El asked me to review the Artone neckloop a couple of years ago. Here is the link to my review. I own several and have 2 charged up everyday. https://blog.medel.com/review-of-the-artone-3-max-bluetooth-neckloop/ @Vinod They can be purchased through Artone’s website or through Amazon.
  2. @Joan Actually it was very interesting. I heard the wind clearly but whenever someone spoke to me, the automatic sound management of Rondo 1 focused in on their voices and I heard them perfectly.
  3. And by the way.... it is amazing how great things sound in high wind with the Rondos in waterwear covers.
  4. @Vera talks about now being comfortable on the phone in episode 6 of her video series! @Mary Featherston talks about using the phone in her successful interview process for a new position in her company! @Jewel talks about her new comfort on the phone in a recent post! How did you each become comfortable using the phone? Any suggestions for CI users who are considering tackling hearing on the phone?
  5. Vera and Nigel return for their final episode. I am so happy that your CI journey has gone so well @Vera! @MED-EL Moderator This is an awesome video series! Having both Vera and Nigel’s perspectives is so important. Our hearing loss and CI journeys impact our loved ones so much.
  6. Congratulations @Mary Featherston!
  7. @Shirsee I am sorry I don’t remember when you were activated. In the early months, while we were getting my ear to a stable spot, new MAPs would sometimes set me back for a couple of weeks while I trained them. But then they advanced further than previous MAPs. I did a lot of aural rehab everyday. If a new MAP did not settle in after 2 weeks, I knew the MAP needed to be adjusted. Now that I have been a CI user for 4 years, I know rather quickly if a MAP change will work. But everyone’s CI journey is unique. Trust your instincts. Wishing you the best.
  8. Today I used my Rondo 1 waterwear covers a different way. I was staying completely dry. But I was going for a long walk on a sandy beach in strong wind. To protect my Rondos from being hammered by blowing sand, I used waterwear covers. The only things on me that stayed protected from the blowing sand were my Rondos!

    @DarlaHS That is exactly what I would try if I had that problem. I hope it helps while you wait for an appointment with your audiologist. Keep us posted. Good luck.

    @DarlaHS Headaches can be a sign that a MAP needs to be adjusted. Our MAPs should be comfortable to listen to all day after we have been CI users for a bit. Are you able to return to your audiologist?
  11. @Shirsee Do you keep your old MAP in a program slot so you can return to it if needed?
  12. The first hair wash is wonderful! I was able to do that soon too.
  13. @Kylie and @soojjan Terrific that your recoveries are going so well. Soon the exciting times come with your activations!
