  1. I never remove the clip, I retrieve the loop from the pin, It's more easy, I never unclip the alligator from loop. First times I forgot it, but now it is a mechanical movement 🙂
  2. Yes Mary Beth, here a photo. I use an invisible fish line from the aligator to Rondo
  3. If you use glasses all day, you can try the loop.
  4. Support MRI. When I was surgered, the implant support TESLA 1 .5, but now and new syncrony implant they allow up to TESLA 3.0 without remove internal magnet.
  5. I was looking in other post where we commented last week about it, but unfortunately the link on there was broken. However, I share the link of other thread. MED EL hava a blog post where talk about travle with the device https://blog.medel.com/traveling-with-a-cochlear-implant/ In my last trip, the staff at airport avoid pass to me between x-ray detector, and checked me personally. MED EL said our implants and processors are ready for these devices, but probably other brands are no yet.
  6. App for mobile to manage processor options. (finetuner on app mobile) 🙂
  7. @Mary Beth You must add an option ins second question about no use neck loop/ Roger tech. I have no one. 🙂
  8. Trust me, it is. If someone don't know translate correctly or don't to know to express the sense of the original, they must change the person that translate and don''t do in this way. I think that nobody ear the two voice at same time to know if the translation of original voice is correct or not. The track must to be independent to be able to select that you want. The person who does not have hearing problems, are able to interpret well the tracks and the brain is left with which you are interested, but for a person with CI the program that is translated in this way is very difficult to understand or impossible.
  9. I have a similar problem when I se tV programs, documentary or similar. Here in Spain (I don't know if this happen in other countries), the programs that are in other languages (english for example), have two language voices at same time. Here the spanish speakers have more volume that english voice), but really suppose a nightmare, because I lost myself trying to follow the thread of conversation. Unfortunately, as apparently "by law" you can not disable one voice (that you are not interested in), because they are in the same track. As you see, the situation is not the same as mgfiest comment here, but the effect on CI for me is very similar.
  10. I never remove them since the first. I use "DryStar" dryer.. I knew that rechargeable batteries never may put inside, but no comment about disposable batteries.
  11. It is not necessary to hide, I just apart for the line to change batteries and let customers who were in the queue.
  12. We smile. I kept calm, explain the attendant the inconvenient. She put our purchase on hold. When I solved the issue, I came back and finished the purchase. Nothing happened 😊
  13. Yes @Mary Beth, It happened to me yesterday.
