    Mary Beth got a reaction from Mary Featherston in A Listening Drive   
    As a Teacher of the Deaf, we encourage parents of young CI users to take listening walks and talk about the different sounds they hear.  We also encourage listening walks in a new school to become familiar with the new sounds they will hear before things get crazy on the first day of school.
    Today I took a listening drive!  It was finally time to replace my old car with a shiny new model.  Wow tech in cars has really changed a lot in the past decade!  This car has audible beep alerts and a crazy wild Apple Play system that includes maps, texts, songs, phone calls, music, etc.  It is a great aural rehab vehicle!  You can converse with Siri about any topic you wish while you drive.  Ask for the weather, sports scores, etc.  The sound from the stereo system is unbelievable.
    It was quite fun!

    Good luck to your son Erica @ERICA
    Very exciting!
    I love the Rondo 2 design but it needs to be re mapped this upcoming Monday.  Hope I can try it out again after that

    The student I was working with when my processor flew off my head and magnetically dangled from the metal cabinet is a CI user too.  Her eyes were huge and then we both cracked up.  However we both respected our distance from that cabinet after that!

    Right after I got my first CI I was in a conference room with a couple of co-workers.  The room happened to have a metal shelf in it, and the shelf was behind me.  I leaned back in the chair and the shelf acquired a CI.

    Mary Beth reacted to Mary Featherston in How long after activation will I be able to hear?   
    Hi @carmella416@hotmail.com - I didn't have a buzz, but yes, the Sonnet sits right on the incision and it's tender for a while.  What I did (not at work, but at home) was take a bandanna and fold it so it's a triangle and then fold it in half a couple more times lengthwise.  That leaves you with a piece of fabric that's about an inch and a half wide, and because you folded it you have an opening along one long edge.
    Tie the bandanna on your head and then position the magnet over your implant - and then instead of hanging the processor off your ear, tuck it into the folded opening.  It will stay there and your ear won't hurt.

    Well... finally got to the trial stage... hearing test confirmed progression in the left ear otosclerosis with carhardts notch down to -70db from 2000-6000hz.... with the rest of the left ear between about -50db down.
    So got the Adhear as a trial and will also be trialling the Baha 5 with SoundArc. This is the first Adhear my guy has done... he has supported more CI customers in addition to the standard portfolio of in ear devices... test device serial is 1320... so fairly low number device.  Still fairly new here in Australia evidently.
    Initial impression is that fitting the adhesive pad is easy and secure. Audiologist programmed the sound processor to my pattern.  Feels good against my head... and after a bit (initial feeling is like a bandaid on the head,,,) you don’t feel it.... nice and light.
    Now for the sound... it does add breadth and richness....kind of like the back speakers in a Dolby 5.1 system.  I had to re-fit after I left the audiologist to get what I felt was the best position on the Mastoid.  So after 24 hours I can feel the difference, still fiddling with adjustments to get the best sound.  At present it makes a difference and I can hear out of the left ear... still a bit tinny but per the Audiologist the programming can be adjusted... simple graphics equalizer paradigm in the programming.
    Bottom line SO FAR.... most important test.... I can hear my wife speak in my left ear and clearly... big win!  She is over the moon.  So we will see how the rest of the trial goes.
    Cheers

    I had forgotten how “easy” level 1 was. Well, I guess it wasn’t easy when I started!
    i can come a lot closer with identifying the words at that level with my eyes closed.

    Squelching along thank-you. Only joking. Small improvements. Speech is really good. Frank Sinatra sounds a little better, but Susan Boyle has not improved (wild horses ).
    Went to a concert and the cello concerto was bad. Percussion great. Listened to young persons guide to orchestra and enjoyed it, very good to relearn all the instruments. 
    Went for a walk up Chapman's peak drive houtbay where I live and listened in amazement to the waves crashing in, perfect. 
    All in all, going great. It's now 3 months since activation.

    I have forgotten to attach it a few mornings at school and I feel lost without it.  I try to wear it all waking hours.  It only comes off right before I go to bed and it is back on after my shower in the morning.  It just brings awareness to how much you miss if you are not wearing it.
