    I take both Rondo and Sonnets.I am bilateral I have a pair of Sonnets and one Rondo so if I wear Rondo I wear the the other Sonnet.
    I carry both types of processor with me as I’ve found each perform different in different environments. I trave a lot mostly by car and I find Rondo works very well I can hear radio and my wife vey well. Sonnets for the plane for me

    Dave in Pittsburgh got a reaction from Mary Beth in Bilateral CI candidate. First time poster, saying hello   
    You do have a daunting task ahead of you. I am bilateral I had one implant done in 2016 and the other in 2018. The biggest reason I went with MEDEL was at that time their implant was accepted for MRI now I think A.B is also ok with MRI.
    I see in the previous post the warranty and upgrade has bee discussed which is very important.
    MEDEL has an awesome customer service center.They are very helpful and responsive to you.
    I see you have been in touch with a MEDEL REP have you gone to a MEDEL meet up or mingle if not get in touch with the rep and see when one is scheduled very informative and you will meet others there also,you can also find the MEDEL meet up on their Facebook .
    This is a very informative blog so if you have any questions ask we are all in this together

    Thanks for the info,not having Rondo 1 wasn’t aware of what you suggested.They had to send my Roger Pen back to Phonak it went dead on me.Tech is great when it works. Yes it’s under warranty.

    Yes got it up and running.I love it.It works very well for me with the cell phone.When I wear the Rondo2 aways carry with me the other Sonnet just in case if I am somewhere and it very noisy I can switch to Sonnet.

    You have answered all of your own questions,I too. have the same problem,however if you have Roger I’ve found by useing Roger attachment to the cell has help me .If you haven’t, it’s a short cable with head set tape on it.Its blue tooth and stream right to your Sonnet. Another thing you can do is ,it’s a free App it’s InnoCapiton  it’s close caption you can see what is being said,also you can go into their settings and when you make a phone call from your cell it’s your number that shows not a close caption number.
    Hope this helps

    Dave in Pittsburgh got a reaction from Hicksy in OPEN HOUSE   
    Why is it that MED EL open house is only posted on Facebook and not on MED EL website? At least I can’t find it there.I may be looking incorrectly so advise me.Thank goodness the MED EL sends out an general email when one is being held in my area.I am not a big fan of social media unfortunately.

    I see that you are in Australia since you are not on Facebook book as I am not I would call MEDEL or if you know your local MED EL customer engagement Rep and know their email they will send a  notice when one is being held in you area.The MEDEL customer service person at the 800 number may be a starting point.
    If you received a red binder there may be an customer service person at MED EL to email directly .Happy hunting if I can be of any help just let me know.We all are in this together.
    Please let me know your outcome
