  1. It’s great that the waterwear covers worked so well in both situations. A very clever alternative use for them.😊
  2. Did you have much wind noise?
  3. A great idea...and great foresight!😊
  4. @Marv I would suggest you check with your CSR about insurance coverage for your batteries sooner rather than later. They need to get pre-approval from your insurance (and Medicare, if you have that) before setting up and starting your quarterly shipments (each which will consist of three boxes) if covered by your insurance. As @Mary Beth said, it was a nice surprise to learn batteries are covered by insurance!
  5. @Mary Beth @Monte yes, I do have a “noise” program that was put on my Fine Tuner by my audiologist. It is extremely helpful in significantly reducing or eliminating background noise, especially in noisy restaurants. I do not know what my audiologist did to “create” the program; however, I do think most of our audiologists know exactly what to do to create such a program.
  6. @Mary Beth Whew...not an easy task in the dark! I had a similar experience in a movie quite a while ago. I’m very diligent about tracking my battery changes now...and I’m sure you will be too!😄

    Loving my Rondo2!!!

    @ept5777 I am on Medicare and also have a Medicare supplement. As @Mary Beth said, I’ll need to wait to see if Medicare approves the upgrade request when it is submitted to them by my CSR. It’s my understanding that they take into consideration the necessity for the upgrade as documented by my audiologist. I am bilateral (first implant February 2014, second September 2014) and both implants were completely covered by Medicare and my supplement (I was 72). I’m waiting until the five-year mark for my second implant before requesting an upgrade so, if approved, both will then be on the same timeline going forward.

    @Mary Beth are the mic covers covered by insurance? I was also glad to know @Jewel and @Mary Featherston haven’t experienced any hair noise issues. I once lost a mic cover on one of my Rondos and the hair noise was very irritating!

    @Jewel thanks for the input. Good to know the Rondo2 doesn’t ever go in the dryer and that you don’t hear your hair rustling. I can’t wait to try them! @Mary Featherston I’m not familiar with the Sonnet covers since I have Rondos and Opus2s, but I appreciate the info about the Rondo2 microphone cover. I’ll be eligible for an upgrade this coming fall and I’m definitely going for Rondo2s rather than Sonnets!

    Loving my Rondo2!!!

    @Mary Beth I’m getting more and more excited about the possibility of getting my Rondo2s later this year! @Jewel @Mary Featherston does the absence of a microphone cover cause you any problem with you hair brushing against the microphone? Also, I’m curious as to whether or not the Rondo2 ever needs to be placed in a dryer. If they are being recharged every night, I just wonder when is there time to do that?
