  4. @Mary Featherstonthank you so much,I just happened too receive and email from Jenna advising of the current cancellation policy. I wholeheartedly agree with you and flying, also even the car rental and hotel rooms although I am looking forward to it research study my and my family health is most important .
  5. @Mary Featherston let me know I am going the first week in June and I was wondering the same. I actually was going to send her email in May
  6. congrats 🎊 I am also bilateral I had my first implant in 2016 and the second in 2018 It’s really great to have real hearing and it will only get better for you. What type of processor do you have I have the Sonnets and I received one Rondo 2 free under a promotion I really like the Rondo in certain applications.
  7. @Mary Beth hope you didn’t mind me doing that. Enjoy the spring thaw in the frozen Northeast
  8. I suggest you tag Mary Beth she is a school teacher for hearing impaired children I am sure she can give you some pointers. She is on HP Good Luck.

  11. Thanks for the info I don’t see my audiologists till October for my yearly check I will put this on my ask audiologists note pad
  12. I am bilateral I put my processors on in the mor at 6:30AM and I typically go to bed at 1:00-130 AM which I then take my processors off.i use the disposable batteries 95% of the times and change batteries every morning as I am up say about 15-18 per day. Hi John in regards to your question I prefer Rondo 2 for the following reasons yes I do find it’s more comfortable battery last all dat quick charging easy to pack when travel . The only discomfort I have is using Rondo 2 in noisy environment such as restaurants and I am not giving up I am mind set it mind over matter I don’t use any neckloop I only use Roger Pen with sonnet on occasions

I only use the rechargeable batteries which came with the processors when I am home all day,I find the disposable batteries to be cost effective and there are stores that will take the disposable batteries for recycling .I have the Sonnet and one Rondo 2 I wear Rondo2 about 90% percent of the time I do carry the spare Sonnet with me I if I am going in a noisy environment. I don’t use any neck loop other then my Roger Pen for T.V. and a weekly meeting. I never change my settings and very seldom have my fine tuner with me. I do prefer Rondo over Sonnet .
  14. My wake up call was: I was in sales and had to do a lot of negotiating and contracts dealsI lost a deal that I shouldn’t have I had a very understandings sales Vice President who also wore hearing aids as I did at the time and he suggested to me about seeing a audiologists that specializes in Cochlear Implants and see if I qualify which I did.I qualified. Best decision I’ve ever made next to going bilateral. I
  15. I am going to MEDEL Durham,NC first week in June can’t wait.
