  1. Aww thank you MB. Still looking for NYC trip report Btw, I've attended Broadway show in norfolk. Wizard of oz. It's was much easier to understand lyrics in songs than dialogues on stage. Overall it was fantastic. If it was 2 years ago, there would have been absolutely no point in going.
  2. Love that I forget the sad part that in fact, once upon a time, I completely lost my hearing, and with it a big chunk of things I cared about in life. It was not really long ago but now feels like a different lifetime. From the moment I have my CIs on till the time they go to the dry box at night, I have my life, my music, regular communication, lots of sounds as well as birds song - back. At the end of the day I feel I can accomplish anything. Improved mental health definitely a huge plus. I love my CIs for giving me a reason to love life again. I also love that my CIs made it possible for me play music . Something I haven't done for over 2 decades.
  3. Hope this one makes the cut!
  4. Yepp I agree with @Jewel. Experiment results determined it's silent
  5. Hi @Beth Which is a better processor? - question is, in which field the two are competing. Technologically, one reason the sonnet may be superior- it has microphone bidirectionality - but this feature may or may not become a main player in success of your particular hearing journey. Rondo 2 is a one piece processor, which is very easy to use and is convenient and virtually worry free when it comes to powering your processor up. Technologically speaking, to my limited knowledge, it does not feature major advancement from the rondo or opus when it comes to managing hearing in noise and challenging situations. Please correct me if i'm wrong. I'm not sure there is one answer that would fit everyone to the question which is better. They both are fabulous in their own way. It really is personal choice. Ask yourself which will fit your life style and personality better? Are you on the go or want a processor which will be virtually maintenance free and easy to use? I'd explore Rondo2 further. Are you oftentimes in challenging hearing situations (multi speaker gathering, background noise etc.?) You might want to learn more about the bidirectional mics Sonnet offers. Add more questions from your own life/ journey Perhaps your audiologist can offer insight from booth scores although I'd take that info only as part of the whole picture which is also how people do in their daily lives outside the office. And I hope other users who tried both can give their take on it. As for me, since day one, the rondo design really appealed to me but I went with sonnet due to mic feature and Audi recommendation. I love the way it sounds. Becoming bilaterally implanted during plusRondo2 promotion period, Rondo2 came and again i'm very attracted to the ease of use but Sonnet is still my own personal choice for daily use processor. To me it makes listening easier and it could be just habitual but for right now I choose my sonnets and i'm keeping the Rondo2 for days that i need the convenience of one piece processor. Best of luck to you @Beth!
  6. @Mary Featherston tnx np Aren't you just happy it's simple in rondo2? Loving it
  7. My Audi showed me that on rondo 2 activation yesterday . All is good at rondo 2 department. The question is in Rondo topic. Just the good old rondo. Thanks tho. P.s. feels light today
  8. Lol @Jdashiellhad the right idea! I was thinking I need teeny-tiny hands for the task! Nice to see there's better solution with the rondo 2 where the line sits comfortably under the mic cover. You're right, been looking for the vid but couldn't find. Thanks for the comment and hope @MED-EL Moderatorcan help "fish" it.
  9. Hi everyone, Until today I've only used my rondo with water wear and I had the finishing line attached to the water wear I'm trying to attach the line to the rondo (2 tiny holes on the side of the processor) without success Can't really find a good tool for this task Any suggestions/ resource link would be greatly appreciated! TIA!
  10. Cool @Mary Featherston Sometimes i'll jump into other people conversations just because I can Making up for all the years I kept quiet because of chronic loss of momentum in group talks
  11. I just love listening to wind through trees Different leaves and their different sounds that they make Especially at night😊
  12. Wonderful! Congratulations 🤗 @Mary Featherston
  13. @Mary Featherston can you please clarify? Did you listen to the call with your new ear? Do you use any assistive listening device? Happy for you, it's obviously good news!
