    Dave in Pittsburgh got a reaction from Mary Beth in Calling all Rondo 2 users   
    @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

    Dave in Pittsburgh got a reaction from Mary Beth in A week in your life as a CI user   
    I am bilateral I put my processors on in the morning 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.
    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 .
