    Mary Beth reacted to Hicksy in Your favorite music of the week   
    I’m all over the board with music, anything but country. Albums I have bought in the past month or so... and listening to extensively 
    Rammstein’s new album- industrial metal
    Chemical Brothers New Geography- electronic
    Johnny Winter Live - good old rock and roll
    Goddo 1st album finally reissued. Great rock and roll but you probably have to be Canadian to have heard of them, sadly... great band
    still buy my music via CD but transfer it to USB stick for my vehicle as well as a music server to play around the house via a Sonos system.
    Despite being hearing impaired my entire life, music is still my greatest love. Still go to concerts all the time...

    Mary Beth reacted to Annie Hawman in Med-El friendships   
    I would love to be able to go to a MedEl gathering.  As it is, I am the only MedEl recipient in my town, and last I heard there were 19 in my state, but they are scattered.  I often check the MedEl Meet Up calendar on Facebook, but so far have not been able to manage one into my schedule in another state.  A couple of years ago I was informed that MedEl would be expanding in Alaska, and I am still eagerly hoping that they do.  Once they get the US Hear Peers going, it would be great if there were a large gathering put together for perhaps Alaska, Washington and Oregon.  I'd buy a ticket and go, for sure!  I love meeting others with CIs!

    Nope I am waiting just like you.  Kind of sign up, then wait. Smile.
     
    But I have met up with quite a few Med-El users apart from Med-El events.  Like what @Dave in Pittsburgh Tried to get organized in Niagara Falls.
    Recently I spent several days with several Med-El users who have become friends.  I posted pics on FB and IG so maybe that is what you have seen.  Wonderful time!  Terrific people.
    I look forward to our paths crossing in person someday soon.

    Hi @iHM24, thanks for your question and for your interest in AudioKey. 
    So far we have released AudioKey in more than 80 countries worldwide, however, due to regulatory reasons the app is not available in every country yet. Please check your local app store to see if you can already download it

    Kind regards, Verena

    Mary Beth reacted to Hearing Again in Cochlear and Roku TV   
    Just thought of what I thought was a genius idea. Instead or getting Bluetooth out of my Dish network (which works) or Roku, which doesn’t, I thought I should use the original remote for the TV and look through it’s settings (I have Sony enigma TV, not an LG) but nothing. So I await the  TV streamer  and will let you know how it is when I get it.

    I think all regions are in the same spot.  They are gathering members right now.  I do not think any HearPeers US events have been announced yet.

    Hi @Qaiser and welcome to HearPeers!
     
    Yes we can use any Med-El processor.  Med-El makes all of their processors backward compatible with all internals.

    Mary Beth reacted to Carol E. in Sonnet and wearing a wig   
    I am not having any problems but I was interested to see if there was anyone else with a CI and a wig.  I might have to have another CI done next year.  I was wondering if I could get away from the Sonnet and try the Rondo.  Sometimes it is alot on my EAR with the wig, glasses and the processor.  No one is sure if the Rondo would work OK under the wig.  The wig is pretty thin as it is a short pixie style.  I know that people with normal head of hair would have more hair over the Rondo then I would with my wig.
    thanks for replying

    Hi Mary Beth.  I just wanted to let you know that I was able to get in touch with the surgeon that did my implants and she wants to talk to me about my problems.  She mentioned something about possibly getting someone to do some testing of my implants to see if they can locate any problems.  I don't have an appointment as yet, but hope to get one soon.  I'll keep you posted as to what I find out.  Thank you so much for caring.  Take care.

    Mary Beth reacted to Percy in Ear Gear is having a 25% off sale!   
    I was having problems with sweat on the Sonnet because the battery cover was not sealing as it should once I got a good sealing battery cover I have not had any issues. 
    You can tell if it has a good seal or not by looking to see if any sweat is on the battery when you remove the battery cover.

    Mary Beth got a reaction from iHM24 in Comparison of Rondo 2 versus Sonnet   
    @iHM24
    Rondo 2 has a built in rechargeable battery.  People are reporting very long battery life.  Some people have reported 20-21 hours.
    There is an optional remote battery pack but that is corded to the Rondo 2.
    The Rondo 2 can also be powered up for less than a full 4 hour charge cycle if needed.
    I am interested in the battery life of Rondo 2 also over time.

    @Mary Beth not tricky at all, I just opened it before I put the Rondo on my head, then slid it through the hair and pushed it flat.  No migration so far, but it's early.  🙂

    Mary Beth got a reaction from Jewel in Hearoes NEW aural rehab app free   
    I finished testing out this app today.  There are a few glitches....for example the activity that plays two musical tones and asks if the second tone is higher pitched or lower pitched only plays ONE tone ....... one of the activities is not storing the completion data so it is not unlocking the next level even though it was mastered.
     
    But there are some cool listening activities that are very different to other apps.  Like the date and time activity and the ordering food activity.
     
    Some of the environmental noises are a little odd.  I know our car does not sound like that.  Smile.

    Be patient when setting up an account.  There is quite a delay between steps and the screen doesn’t change so you tend to think the command didn’t go through but it did.
