    I’m going to drive down to Glenmont for this Med-El Mingle.  Is anyone else from HPs attending?  I would love to meet some HP members face to face.

Two inches wide. ITs sift snd fuzzy. Pale skin colour. She cut it to size by tracing the shape onto the sheet.

    @Mary Featherston  Awesome!  Feeling quite bionic aren’t you?  Isn’t it so cool to overhear things?  We used to not be able to hear the things we were focusing on!  Smile.
    I had to get comfortable with overhearing other people’s conversations.  At first it felt like eavesdropping!  Smile.

    Kara of Canada got a reaction from sassychele02 in Rondo 2 features and questions   
    From Leigh:
    Hi Mary Beth, thanks for all your questions! The RONDO 2 has one omnidirectional  microphone, and is designed for hands-free control with Automatic Sound Management. This minimizes the need to change settings or make adjustments with your remote. The other opening you may be talking about is for LED light indicators. A 4 hour charge on the charging pad provides up to 18 hours of battery life. There is also a Mini Battery Pack available to connect to the RONDO 2 for any extra-long days, which is powered by a standard AAA battery and offers approximately 35 more hours of listening. Due to its splash-proof design, it is actually not necessary to use a Drying Kit with RONDO 2.  Feel free to ask any more questions!
    Kind regards, Leigh
    this was an answer to your question @Mary Beth

    Kara of Canada reacted to Mary Beth in Rondos in waterwear to the rescue!   
    WOW moment
    We went on a media boat ride in NYC and it was a blast! We were bouncing over waves, listening to our captain and chatting with each other all while the wind was blowing and waves were spraying.  It was just fabulous to hear so well with my Rondos safely in waterwear and clipped to me with the EarGear tether.  Sooo awesome!
     
    Thank you Med-El!

    Actually Lake Simcoe. It was super warm. The wind was cool though. Big waves that day. It reminded me of the ocean. I wore the headband overtop and it worked fine.

    @Mary Featherston when I get real sweaty I take off the Sonnet give it a wipe down with a dry cloth or tissue then wipe the side of my head and I’m good as new. Haven’t had my sonnets stop working on me at all from sweat.

    @Daniel the Stranger it sounds like you're doing really well, aside from the posting woes.
    I have the same issue with going for a new MAP, it feels like a bit of a step back for a few days till the brain works it all out again.
    Today I heard a song that actually sounded like it should!  That's fairly unusual for me.
