  1. I was activated on 14th June and I have been enjoying music from day one but it would seem I am exceptionally lucky . At first I could hear all the instruments fine but it sounded like a duck singing. Now it's much better. At the 1 month speech tests I scored 90% without lip reading and 99% with. I scored 0% without lip reading before implant.
  2. I also chose medel mainly because of the rondo also because I think they have the best implant array I've only been activated 12 days and I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs it Listening to music again is Fantastic
  3. I got the same thing real bad like I burnt the tip of my tongue. operation was 6 weeks ago not much has changed
  4. I got the same problem , the clips that came with it no good for short hair . There's another clip in the kit for the collar . But I haven't tried it Piercing your ear the only answer
  5. I'll bet those clever people at med el who came up with the sonnet rechargeable are working on a rondo rechargeable right now.
  6. I was thinking of just using the little clip on the tether to clip it on an ear ring , if it gets pulled to hard it will come off .... I hope .
  7. Thanks Donna im so worried about it hitting the floor or loosing it, I just called my mate the tattooist and tomorrow he's going pierce my ear put in something I can clamp the tether too, A little extreme yes but those who know me won't be surprised I'm sure. In the past with hearing aids I've always hated the sound of a radio on in the room as it just sounded like tearing paper off in the distance. Very annoying. Been listening to music all morning. Tried listening to some sex pistols but my implant wasn't having any of that .sounded terrible . Lol. Audi said try simple music to star
  8. It is nice not having it behind the ear . Much simpler . When I chose which device and company it was the rondo that really stood out by far as my first choice. But.. Now I've got it all the advantages seem against it too . It fell off and I caught it as I was leaving the ci centre , with the 4 magnet as well. Went to bed late last night , I was just going around the house making noises like moving stuff around, listening to my own voice even . There's noises I haven't really heard in 21 years . Flushing toilet , kettle boiling even my feet on carpet.
  9. I'm with the university of Southampton audiological implant services U.K. They've been very good all along.
  10. Well the sound is everything I was warned it could be at first , for a few minutes just sensations and beeps really ,then the audiologist kept talking for 1 1/2 hours and by the end he just sounded like he was breathing helium and kinda artificial . Then I had another hour with another Audi for communication support and I could understand nearly every word she said !! I got 4 maps on my rondo each slightly louder than the last, right now 5 hours after activation I'm on map 4 listening to some dire straights and led Zeppelin but it's not really loud enough . Beat that. The music sounds a
  11. Now the rechargeable batteries are available for the sonnet are there any plans to do this for the rondo?
  12. What hair clip do you use sandy . I got 2 with the rondo kit but neither of them do hair
  13. Thanks Mary Beth a quick search and I found hearclips and not only do they have lots of cheap ones they got some serious bling 14 carat diamond and gold. All for the rondo. I think I'll go around my mate the tattooist and see what he's got that's cheap but I can see from the pics on hearclips where to best put it
