Hi Eve, I am a new Samba user as of last week and saw your post. Did you see your audiologist and was the problem resolved? I experienced some staticy noise when we were activating the device, but with a few adjustments by the audiologist, the problem was resolved. My Bonebridge has been a life-changer just in five short days! I am in medical imaging and have struggled with communicating with my patients since my acoustic neuroma surgery eight years ago. It is so wonderful to not have to constantly ask them to repeat what they said! I do not sleep with my Samba because I use a CPAP device for sleep apnea. It probably wouldn't stay on anyway, as I have short hair. Good luck with your hearing journey!
