    @Andre Belitardo sorry for the late reply! 
    I checked with our product experts and unfortunately easyTek does not work with SAMBA or SAMBA 2. 
    However, miniTek is still available directly through MED-EL, so if you are interested in one, please get in touch with your local MED-EL team directly. 
    Hope that helps! 
    Kind regards, Verena

    Thank you all for being there for people like me who need encouragement. I go to Emory University November 11th to get the process started. I have been deaf in the left ear for over 10 years . I had a blow to the head in 1986 that developed into menieres years later . I am tired of the struggle that goes along with SSD . When my good ear get clogged from allergies or barometric pressure life gets complicated. I am looking at this as my new chapter in life . We will be talking as I go through this . Larry

    I also have single sided deafness, and have had great results so far (18 months.)  My hearing is well balanced with the 2 different ears, the brain is amazing at putting it together to make 1 sound. Though when I listen with 1 ear at a time the sounds are definitely different. Also my tinnitus has reduced too! That seems to be a common happy side effect.

    Hi @Mary Beth, 

    I just checked with our experts:
    For each fitting map it can be set to a telecoil only or mix. This cannot be changed by you, but has to be set up by your audiologist.

    Kind regards, 

    Mary

    Hi Larry
    I’ve had a CI for single sided deafness. It has been great and I wouldn’t want to go back to the way I was before. My history is different to yours. I have no memory of having ever heard in my right ear. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to  get a CI when I was 49. I have had it for 6 years now.
    It takes time to get used to it, and everyone gets something different, but listening practice really helps.

    It does not seem like AudioStream gives us control over the mixing ratio with an app.
    My guess is it works like the Roger 21 as far as mixing.  Fixed at 50/50.  We can alter that only by turning down the volume of our MAP (dampening environment sounds) and increasing the volume on the streamed audio.  No way to reach 100/0 mix.
    I wonder if we could create a MAP with our audiologist to use which has the environmental sound as quiet as possible when the streamed audio sound is as high as possible.  We could at least quickly move into that MAP instead of manipulating the processor volume control each time?
    I love 100/0 mix.  Artone does that on T.  Like right now while I am listening to an audiobook.

    Hopefully direct streaming will also be included in the Rondo family of processors soon.
    The Sonnet is long.  The extended special battery covers (AudioStream and Roger 21) are even longer.
    I can’t wait for direct streaming options in the Rondo family of processors.

    @Mary Bethprovides great information on the Artone 3 Max and yes it is available in Amazon. You’ll need your fine tuner for your ci and whatever you yes to switch to T coil mode on your hearing aid. That way you are in T mode so you can use the Artone neck loop. 
    youll also need to add it to your phone’s Bluetooth devices to use the Artone for cellphone calls.

    Hi @Irl   Thank you for your question. 

    You can charge RONDO 3 on the go using the Charging Cable, which plugs into RONDO 3's cable port. The other side can then be connected via USB to a power bank for charging. 

    Regarding AudioLink, this is typically purchased separately. However, your local MED-EL representative is best placed to give exact details about this, as well as the upgrade kit, as this can vary from country to country.  You can find their details at https://www.medel.com/clinic-finder

    Kind regards, 

    Mary

    @Mary Beth
    For the past week I have been trying out an AudioLink with bilateral SONNET2 processors. The AudioLink's Bluetooth feature is ONLY good for phone calls. It does not seem to contain a Bluetooth audio/music profile. Even though it is linked to your phone, playing music will not pass through that connection. My audiologist thought it would handle music properly if connected to a Rondo3. No one really knows.
    The simplest solution I found was to buy a tiny Bluetooth receiver ($15) that plugged directly into the audio-in jack on the AudioLink. I found that using the AudioLink as recommended by Med-El for connecting to your TV, was not usable. The volume was uncontrollable - too loud to use in comfort. Also to adjust anything on the Audio-Link while plugged into the TV, you had to walk over to it (kind of silly for trying to have a hands-free experience). I will buy another Bluetooth transmitter and attach it to the TV audio-out connector. Then I can always have the AudioLink around my neck.

    It looks like a special battery cover for Sonnet 1 and 2.  (Kind of like the Roger 21 special battery cover.)
     
    @Joan
    Med-El says it is only for Sonnet 1 & 2.
