    Almosupremecommander got a reaction from Cara Mia in Activation today fantastic   
    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 little tinny and artificial but I can hear it. Kinda like an old radio.
    Unbelievable

    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

    Well the surgery went well and the staff at the hospital were fantastic only in for 1 day . I honestly thought it would hurt but I can hardly feel it .I was thinking of borrowing my mates bucket dog collar to stop me from accidentally scratching it this week .

    Hi Ivana
    I am aware that it won't be a great idea to have any head trauma with an implant . They've told me no parachuting for 3 months which is ok because I really really want a chance at hearing again and after I'm back in the air I will try to be very careful ,but with base jumpers it's kind of like dealing with drug addicts and I'm not your average junkie as I make the equipment for a living I'm more like a dealer. I will be jumping again at some point.
    I'd love to hear what you found out about helmets.
    If you want to see some really useless helmets take a look at the average skydiving helmet .
    I go for paragliding helmets because even the cheapest one is certified for airborne sports and the padding is more like a motorbike helmet . With skydiving helmets the padding is often nonexistent

    Hi I'm being implanted in 2 weeks and I'm getting the rondo . I went for the rondo because it's a one piece with nothing behind the ear.
    I want to ask after the implant is all healed can you feel it ? If you run your fingers over the implant site can you feel it's there or is it buried deep? I'm a base jumper And I'm wondering about crash helmets , anyone else on here wear them , or do dangerous sports . How soon after the operation is it comfortable to put helmet on.
    They've told me not to skydive for 3 months but I do other more sedate stuff like speed flying and paragliding too.
