Hello Lori my name is Dave an I am bilateral my first implant was 2016 and 2018 the second I have Sonnet 1 and I was eligible for for free Rondo2 just one which I wear in place of Sonnet as I was reading your post you have both the Sonnets and Rondo 2 and you prefer the Rondo 2 may I ask why you prefer the Sonnets I like the Rondo2 in some setting but I to lean towards the Sonnets . Thanks so much

  5. I went to the dentist the other day everyone had face shields and mask it was impossible to understand anyone and unfortunately of all of his patients I am the only one with CI so no one really understands it very frustrating. I actually thought I was in a Star Wars Movie or in a Haze Mat environment .

  8. Well I don’t know how it works with your CI center you got the approval or rejection well before surgery also they said if it was rejected would appeal
  9. @Sherriwhat would you like to know I am bilateral I have 2 Sonnets and I was eligible for a free Rondo2 so many times I wear on rondo and one sonnet I really like the Rondo lighter on the head no hanging on the ear and no interference with wearing the Mask😷 one battery charge last the day, recharge in a few hours no bulky recharger if you use rechargeable batteries. I do know a lady who attends our monthly meet up group until the virus hit and she is bilateral and has the the Rondo2 and she absolutely loves them. Good Luck
