  1. DITTO I am excited too. Can’t wait for its release!!!
  2. @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. joe
  3. There is a typo in the title, but you get the gist. There may even be some wit there.😃
  4. Here is my interview with Jon Leibman of For Bass players only. Bass grooving (despite hearing loss) “The thing about the bass is that it’s felt. I can feel it booming!” By Jon Liebman Week of August 3, 2020 Since launching For Bass Players Only back in 2009, I’ve interviewed close to 700 bass players. While every interview offers unique insights into playing bass and learning bass, every once in a while I get an interview that truly moves me. This week’s interview with Joe Dashiell marks one of those instances. Joe grew up in O
  5. The processors, Rondos and Sonnets etc, are matched with the implant so the magnets attract. my right side processors will not connect to the left side because they are not matched maybe a higher magnet strength is needed? Either way, definitely contact CI team/ MedEl Joe
  6. @Mary Beth you said in an earlier post, regarding the AudioLink, Roger Pen/Select, and Artone 3 Max. The sound quality between these options is different. I recommend people test out these devices before choosing the best device for their needs. I also suggest people test out the Artone 3 MAX BT neckloop. i bought the AudioLink, Roger Select, Artone 3 Max and Roger MyLink personally, I received the Roger Pen and Roger 21 in a kit for my left side, and a Roger X receiver in a kit for my right side .. Sonnet/ Rondo combos each time Each item I bought, separatel

  8. Yes however the sound quality is decreased with that app. mill stick to the cable as quality is an important factor for me.
  9. @Mary Beth Excellent review! i must point out that because the AudioLink is designed and built by MedEl for MedEl Sonnets 1 and 2, it is simple to use. It just works out of the box. A real convenience. Roger pen and Select are both excellent products as is the Artone Max 3. The Roger devices require the Roger receivers (Roger 21 or RogerX with FM battery cover, or the Roger My Link) the Roger Pen/Select must be paired to the Receiver before use. The Artone Max 3 requires pairing to your phone and requires telecoil mode (T of MT). Everything needs recharging of fre
  10. The Audiolink has several pluses but a few minuses for me. I like the size and shape as it fits well in my pocket. It has a clip for lapels but could be a stronger clip. I like how it pairs with my sonnets using my Finetuner. Very easily. The microphone works well and I use it mostly at the restaurant table. The microphone Is small and omnidirectional, however, but I adjust my Sonnets with the Finetuner accordingly. phone call are easy and wirelessly connected to my iPhone via Bluetooth. I use InnoCaption for all calls and the Audiolink works flawlessly with that app. When
  11. I have no doubt the MedEl will be around long after the founders pass away. Its a bigger organization than that. I wore HAs for over 20 years as my hearing loss progressively got worse, year by year. It got to the point that my speech recognition scores were below 50%, So I became a CI candidate. I received my first (right) implant in March 2016, activation in April 2016, and wore a HA in left. I had to make adjustments to volume and Telecoil switching on two devices, but I am a tech-guy so no problem. That year was eye opening for me in my ability to hear. So much so I told my ENT I
  12. I recently received my Audiolink and am working on learning all about it. I used the coupon from MedEl when I bought it on WebShop. merry Christmas to me! i see that audiokey App is available but not in US yet, is it available in Canada?
  13. @Jewel email me and I will connect you with our MedEl Miami rep
  14. I have Rondo 1 and a Rondo 2 as well as Sonnets - which I tend to use more often - due to the 2 microphones and all that offers. I use the Rondos as back up processors. I really like the Rondo 2 simply from the recharge once over night - while I sleep. Then its useable ALL day long. The Rondo1 takes disposable batteries that only last a few days AND it takes 3 batteries. I use disposable battiest in my Sonnets too because I had an issue with the rechargeable battery frame on 1 Sonnet. Despite trials and tribulations, I LOVE MY MEDEL processors and implants because they allow m
