    Valentin got a reaction from Mary Beth in How to secure Roundy 2 processor on head   
    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 🙂

    I wish the fine tuner was actually an app on my phone so I don't have to travel with a fine tuner and a mobile phone! 
    Also the vain part of me would like to see a smaller BTE processor lol!

    I am a huge fan of aural rehab as many of you know.  It helped me take my brain from static/beeps to awesome listening.  We have shared many apps and online sites here in our rehab topic.  It is also important to practice listening with live voices.  Here is a sequence of sheets to use with a family member/friend.  I trained with these sheets too.  Enjoy!

    Here is another one @Mary Beth
    https://blog.medel.com/what-is-an-individualized-cochlear-implant/
    A very cute analogy between cochleas and shoe sizes.
    However, I doubt we wear a size 8.5 on the left foot and a 9 on the right, though. We typically buy one she size or the other.
    With our cochlea's, we depend on the surgeon to measure and determine the proper implant for our left and right cochleas.
    I have a FLEX28 (28mm in the cochlea) in my right ear and a CLASSIC MEDIUM (24mm in the cochlea) in my left ear.

    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 😊

    Valentin got a reaction from Mary Beth in February is a great month to post what we LOVE about our CIs   
    It's no easy to select one sound. Back to sound words is described a very big WOW moment. It's not immediate, but with the time as @Jewel comment, You discover or re discover what you was losing in this world. Perhaps it is stupid but, some sound surprised to me are leaves of trees falling in autumn and roll on the ground. The rain hitting the roof or the ground.

    the age of smartphone is an Important fact to consider. Some apps aren't work with all OS versions of phones, specially the oldest. Operators do not usually limit applications, or increase the invoice for use of data connection.

    @Mary Beth  I'm using  Invisible fishing line and, for security I change it every 6 months. I have a reel of 100 meters probably for a large time  and support 7lbs  of weight (Rondo is more light) 😉 😎

    Valentin got a reaction from Mary Beth in EarGear for Rondo2   
    @Mary Beth you can use the grip directly to the glasses but the grip have no protection inside and the small friction with the pin of the glasses damage it, so I prefered to use the loop.
    For this reason I'm looking the loop. The friction after two years, damage it. It's more cheap to change the loop that the frame or pin.

    I'm using the small clip instead the big. This have good grip and is more discreet. I tried at first time to do as you comment, but it to seem less secure.

    Valentin got a reaction from Mary Beth in Cochlear implants and Airport security (arc, x-ray scanner)   
    My experience after the trip with CI.
    Airports: 6 (three for go / Three for come from). with 0 issues.
    Although I read comments, blog posts and opinion I had some concern, especially at USA airports. I had passed through security arc locally in other times, but for any reason this time when the  staff of  security look to me and I pointed to Rondo directly offer to me avoid the arc. They did a personal check-up, and We continue the trip. At Miami airport, the staff at the security staff, ask to other agent (I suppose someone with more range), and I passed out of the arc with a personal check- up again.
    With this experience I we can check that in more and more airports, have knowledge about the device.  MED EL cochlear implant are compatible with arc, but I know thatother brands could have issues when pass through it.
    At plane, with more than 10 hours of each route, sincerely I urn down the volume.
