  1. I did! It was so much fun and very informative! The catering was top shelf and the dance was terrific! The Med-El staff were very patient, encouraging, knowledgeable, and helpful. I would not hesitate to attend another if needed. I highly recommend going. And Mary Beth, I got to try the Bose QC 35 headphones... AMAZING!! My daughter surprised me with them for Christmas. I cannot believe how clear and "normal" everything sounds through them. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with them ? I have my 1 year since activation appointment with my audiologist this week. I can't believe it has been a year! Amazing journey so far. I was truly scared about everything before making the decision to go forward with the CI. You were also very helpful and encouraging when I was down. Thank you for helping to ease my fear and supporting me through the doubt and worry! Hope you are well ?
  2. Yes @MaryBeth, a Sonnet EAS and a Naida. Unfortunately, I did not get a Roger Pen or receiver with my EAS kit. Those started being included about 3 months or so after I got my kit. I have the Quattro but I never use it. It has been out of the box 2, maybe 3 times. I just don't like it. I will check out the Artone 3 MAX. I am looking into the Bose QC35 headphones. My daughter works at Best Buy and can help me out with that. I am definitely going to look for the what to bring article. The event sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun also as they are having the workshop, a cocktail party, and a dance! You can even wear costumes if you would like to. My husband and I are both going and I am excited about it. Hopefully I can learn much more about the Bluetooth options there. Both of my Audi's are communicating with each other about it, as well as the Pediatric CI Audi in the practice to help me determine what will work and what kind of cost will be associated. Wish I would have received the Roger instead of the Quattro. I will let you know how everything turns out. Thanks so much for your help!!
  3. Hi, my name is Janea. I was implanted on January 9th, 2017 and activated February 3rd. I am a unilateral EAS user. I joined Hear Peers a few months ago but am just now learning about what a valuable resource it is. I am looking forward to reading through everything. I am also very happy to see @marybeth active here. Smile You were a tremendous help to me when I was starting this journey and throughout it. I just got a Phonak Naida hearing aid last week. I am adjusting to it. It is certainly different from the CI but similar in how things sounded initially with the CI. My HA Audi said that was normal and just like the CI cognitive connection, the HA has to wake up the other side of my brain. I am attending a Hands on Hearing event at the end of this month that will focus on streaming devices and options. I am looking forward to it as that is where my biggest questions are. With one side EAS CI and one side HA, I am not sure what I need to get that will work best with both. I would appreciate any suggestions, information or experiences anyone could share on this subject. Thanks!!
