  1. uhuh...with Artone included...!!! 👏👏
  2. @Tracey_66 depending the processor you have the options of disposable/rechargeable batteries change, and depending if the surgery is covered by Social Security or is done by a private company. Rondo 2 have a rechargeable battery system similar to iPhone, by wireless. It charge by night placing it in it it "bed". The battery has a performance of 16 hours. Other processors as mine (Rondo), or Sonet , uses rechargeable (not wireless) or disposable batteries. Rondo 2 is a one-piece device, while others are devices that go behind ear with a coil connected. Depend of your preferences, and your activity, you must to select one or other. In the forum you can find experiences of other users as Mary Beth comment, that have had different processors and gadgets. Altough each one live his own voyage, could you give an idea of them. I only had have Rondo, I'm happy with it, and probably my next one will be one piece processor again. Concerning the center, someone give you the possibility of select the external unit, and other give you one with no questions. The cochlear implant center in Spain are diverse, some are managed by insurance or private companies, other are managed by Social Security, the options they offer to will be different, in implant selection, processors, accessories and maintenance as I commented above.
  3. @Tracey_66 don't worry about questions. I understand your because all of us here pass through them. The only gadget I have is Cozyphones, I didn't decide by other yet, but sincerely I watch TV, ear the phone... directly with processor. It is something difficult mainly at the beginning, and in my case it is not perfect yet, but I don't use additional devices. Depend of processor you select or center give you come with all necessary accessories to operate it, don't worry about it. Additional gadgets could be buy by you later, but don't hurry the first months. This is a voyage, and you must to have patient. I don't know where you are implanted, all center has different policies about maintenance. The more expensive cost I have at this moment are batteries (around 150€). I ad bought some loops for secure Rondo to glasses, and no more cost, but as I said, depend of your center. MED EL headquarter really are in Madrid, but them don't do map to you. This is done by your implant center. I live in Canary Island,, the center that implanted me me are here, and They do the map to my processor. I've never to go to Madrid for this process. If you have more questions, go ahead!! 🙂
  4. Hi @Mary Beth, it is not for me. Someone in a facebook group comment about it, and I have curiosity. This user have doubts about to buy Rogerpen or Audiolink. I think my next processor will be a one piece unit again 🙂
  5. Wich is more convenient? Someone that have both system and could share difference between both devices?
  6. Why not. If any day someone reach a solution for reduce or eliminate it with no colateral issues. I think it wold be genius
  7. Best wishes for all, Great Christmas and better new year...
  8. Mary Beth, is a lucky woman. My tinnitus began after to be implanted. I think that we all are differents.
  9. Concerto support 1,5 MRI scan, with special protocol. You must ask your audi. https://www.medel.com/hearing-solutions/cochlear-implants/concerto
  10. (english version below) @EVA MARIA CANTERO MATEOS, si usas gafas, tienes la opción del clip y el loop que viene Con Ronco. Creo que en Rondo 2 tiene alguna variación. También tienes otra opción que algunos usuarios del foro han comprado.. Te dejo el enlace. Y aquí otro hilo donde hablamos del tema: ----- If you war glasses, you can use the loop and clip. In Rondo 2 is something different (I think). Other forum members are using a "gadget" for Rondo. You can see the link Here, other link where we are talking about:
  11. (English version below) @EVA MARIA CANTERO MATEOS No te limita, te da muchas ventajas respecto a no oír nada, pero si has de ser consciente que llevas el implante y que para ciertas actividades, has de tomar alguna precaución adicional. Rondo tiene el inconveniente de que se puede caer con facilidad ya que no tiene ningún otro punto de apoyo como los procesadores retroauriculares. ------------- It doesn't limit you, it gives you many advantages over not hearing anything, but if you have to be aware that you are wearing the implant and that for certain activities, you have to take some additional precaution. Rondo has the downside that it can fall off easily as it has no other support point like the rear-ear processors.
  12. (english version below).. Hola @EVA MARIA CANTERO MATEOS Soy usuario de Rondo (el procesador anterior a Rondo 2) y he llevado gorro sin inconveniente. Lo que evito es ponerme o quitarme un sueter por ejemplo que es cuando se genera una electricidad estática mayor. Si haces la prueba, cuando te quitas una de esas prendas en la oscuridad, se observa un destello que no es otra cosa sino la electricidad estática que se genera. Esta podría dañar el procesador. Un gorro de lana no genera tanta "energía", pero al usar Rondo has de tener cuidado tanto al ponerlo como al quitarlo, porque si no se hace con cuidado, este saldrá despedido. Si se golpea con el suelo por ejemplo, se podría romper. La electricidad estática es un problema para los dispositivos eléctricos, pero no creo que un gorro dañe a Rondo. Por favor si estoy equivocado, que @MED-EL Moderator me corrija -------------- Hi Eva María I am a user of Rondo (previous version of Rondo 2) and I have worn a hat without inconvenience. What I avoid is putting on or taking off a sweater for example, which is when higher static electricity is generated. If you do the test, when you take off one of those garments in the dark, you see a flash (the static electricity that is generated). This may damage the processor. A wool cap does not generate as much "energy", but when using the processor you have to be careful both when putting it and removing it, because if it is not done carefully, it will be fired. If you hit the ground for example, it could break. Static electricity is a problem for electrical devices, but I don't think a cap will harm Rondo. Please, If it is wrong, @MED-EL Moderator, correct me.
  13. Really great guys, thank's for sharing it.
  14. Hi @Megan L., happy to read you... After 3 years..mmmm, _sincerely, it is not perfect, but never I want to go back 🙂. This is not an easy trip, looking forward without giving up...
