  1. @bclap When you say “noisy”, do you mean that you hear a lot of sounds in your environment as soon as you put it on?
  2. @bclap Congratulations! Which processor do you have?
  3. @Nischal Koirala Rondo 2 topics https://forum.hearpeers.com/forum/31-rondo-2/
  4. @Nischal Koirala Sonnet 2 topics https://forum.hearpeers.com/forum/38-sonnet-2/
  5. @Nischal Koirala This is why no one can promise any of us anything before we get implanted.....everyone’s results vary. We also vary with respect to which processor is the best fit for us. I hear well at college lectures, high school classrooms, conference presentations in large auditoriums with both my Rondo and my Sonnet. I have friends who are hearing great with Rondo 2 processors in quiet and in noise. I have friends who hear best using Sonnet’s dual mics in noise. The best we can do when choosing processors is to learn about the features and about what people like or don’t like about the processors. We have both Rondo 2 topic category and Sonnet 2 topic category. Have you found them yet? You can read a lot of people’s posts to help you decide. When do you need to choose?
  6. Some people end up with a BPPV episode or two after CI surgery. Many find treatments from physical therapists helpful. Check with your CI team first. @dkritter
  7. @PFgma I am not sure which part you are looking for. Which processor? Sonnet? Sonnet rechargeable batteries in standard size (up to 10 hours) or micro size (up to 7 hours) may be ordered through Med-El . In the US you can contact your customer service rep to go through your insurance if possible. You may also self pay through your CSR or the online shop.
  8. @MallaRuth Well deserved and most definitely a needed expense for rehab purposes! Cough cough Which headphones are you choosing?
  9. @MallaRuth Will be thinking of you next Thursday when your right side welcomes you back to being bilateral my friend!
  10. @Lori Martin YAY! You have a date!
  11. I am sorry to hear of your child’s accident. @MED-EL Moderator
  12. Hi all! Do we have any Sonnet EAS users in or near New York City? @Neil @JohnL @Laurie @C T lex @stream2525
  13. @mgfiest It seems to be entertainment through speakers for you. It does solve itself it seems. It may just take more time and exposure. Frustrating though I bet.
  14. @Nischal Koirala The majority of what impacts our hearing with cochlear implants are the internal components and the speech processing strategies. These are the same for Rondo 2 and Sonnet 2. Front end processing (how the mics pick up sounds and how the processors treat those sounds) are different for Rondo 2 and Sonnet 2. Rondo 2 uses one omnidirectional mic in Automatic Sound Management 1 (ASM 1). Sonnet 2 uses dual mics in Automatic Sound Management 3 (ASM 3) which uses adaptive intelligence and a new advanced chip set. Rondo 2 is a one piece processor worn off the ear with a built in rechargeable battery. Sonnet 2 is a behind the ear processor that uses rechargeable batteries (which do not last a full day without being swapped out) or disposable batteries. The connectivity options are different. In the end, both will be terrific processors for different people. Some people will prefer Rondo 2 and others will prefer Sonnet 2. Choose whichever one appeals to you and your lifestyle more. Wishing you the best.
