  2. @phobos512 I bet it was! Hopefully that is the only unpleasant part of your journey.
  3. @Jewel I think we can opt to replace that small alligator clip with any hair clip or wig clip we prefer. We just undo the loop attachment to that small alligator clip. But I am still confused about the actual tether. It looks the same as the one that everyone keeps talking about that breaks too easily. It seems useless to have a security line that breaks easily.
  4. @phobos512 We are wishing you the very best on your surgery tomorrow. When you feel up to it, let us know how things go.

  7. Cool new features! This small one piece unit has dual mics! Works with a remote app! Has its own streaming device. https://www.medel.com/hearing-solutions/samba2
  8. @Watersail I love this statement. I had the same kind of talk with my left ear before getting it implanted!
  9. @Watersail Same for me. The Artone automatically connects to the device it was last paired with when it is turned on. So if I used the Artone with my iPad before turning it off, when I turn it back on it will connect to my iPad automatically if it is available. If I want to use it with my phone instead, I must tell the iPad to disconnect and then tell the phone to connect. I keep one of my Artone neckloops paired to the TVB. The other 2 Artone neckloops I use with my phone, iPad, etc.

  11. Here are pics of the original Rondo 2 attachment options (hair and clothes) and the Rondo 1 attachment options (hair and clothes) @Jewel the small alligator clip is the hair attachment clip for Rondo 1. But the part of the Rondo 2 attachment line that keeps breaking so easily looks the same as before. Maybe something has changed with it that we can not see in the pictures to make it stronger and less prone to breaking?
  12. @Jewel I am confused too. The part that is breaking so easily looks the same.
  13. I received the Beats of Cochlea festival schedule and links today. It looks fabulous! Thank you @MED-EL Moderator for sponsoring this virtual 2020 festival!
  14. @MED-EL Moderator Thanks Barbara. I saw that but thought it was a picture of the original tether.
  15. @Mary Featherston Try telling one of your other devices to forget the Artone under BT settings. Then see if it will pair with your home laptop.
  16. Good luck @Liz! I hope it works out great.
  17. @Leila Riley I would think that our hearing loss history would play a huge role in how we feel about our hearing loss. Some of us were born with hearing loss. Some of us were born with typical acoustic hearing and progressively lost our hearing. Some of us were born with typical acoustic hearing and suddenly lost our hearing. I was born with typical acoustic hearing and started losing my hearing at age 13. There were many different times in my life when I mourned the loss of hearing and its implications in my day to day life. I did come to accept my hearing loss and adapted to life as a hard of hearing person. Then another drop in hearing and the process started all over again. It was difficult to say the least. By the time I seeked out cochlear implants my life was beyond frustrating and exhausting. These CIs have been life changing for me. There have been good things that were brought into my life due to my hearing loss as well. Becoming fluent in American Sign Language, choosing to become a Teacher of the Deaf, special people who entered my life because of my hearing loss. Everyone’s journey to choosing cochlear implants is so unique and so interesting. I have met many great people through my CI journey and I am thankful for each of them.
  18. @carolinemack Were you able to solve the problem your Artone was having connecting to your laptop/computer?
  19. @MED-EL Moderator Terrific! Will you please post a link to a picture of it? Thanks! @Jewel @Sheila Vieira @Joan
  20. @Leila Riley Rondo 2, Sonnet 2 or Sonnet?
  21. @Leila Riley You are still in the early weeks! Things get much much better. Keep listening to music. Any music. Focus on what is accessible to you in the music at the moment. For me it started with the beat. Then high pitched instruments. Then more and more percussion. Then the other instruments joined in. It is a journey. Enjoy your ride and keep us posted!
  22. @Mary Featherston Someone else recently had trouble connecting their Artone to their laptop but it would connect to their phone and tablet. Does your Artone connect correctly to your phone or tablet or is it not connecting to any device right now?
  23. @Leila Riley welcome to HearPeers! When were you activated and which processor are you using?
  24. @Leila Riley Welcome! music was a gift slowly opened by my CIs. It took time but was so worth the wait! Tell us a bit about yourself. How long have you been implanted? One side or two? Which processor do you use? Have you worked on any music rehab with your CI? I did and it helped a lot with pitch. Here is my music and CI experience. https://blog.medel.com/3-steps-to-rediscovering-music-with-a-cochlear-implant/ .
  25. @mertmur Thank you for your kind words. Yes my first CI is a Concerto. Eight months later when I received my second CI, the US FDA had approved the Synchrony. So I have one of each design. The Synchrony design has a rotating internal magnet that allows for MRI 3.0 T scans. Both internals sound awesome.
