  1. @Mary Beth Love my Rondo2s!๐Ÿ˜Š
  2. @Mary Beth I recently switched from my Rondo2s to my Opus2s for a week. When I was ready to switch back to the Rondo2s, I put them on the air chargers the night before to recharge them. However, neither displayed the red charging light so I set them aside, assuming a malfunction that I would deal with in the morning. The next morning, without thinking about it, I put both Rondo2s on. Imagine my surprise when both were working just fine...this after having been stored away for an entire week and not having been recharged! I then wore them for 16 hours before removing them for the night and both were still active when removed. Amazing battery retention!
  3. @Mary Beth Your reviews are spot-on! My Artone neckloops (yes, I have more than one too!) are, by far, the most comfortable, easy-to-use of any neckloop I have ever used. I love them! The size (small!), quality, ease of use and low cost of all three of these Artone devices is truly incredible.
  4. @Mary Beth Great job...and yes, I love mine too!!๐Ÿ˜Š
  5. @Mary Beth Great video! Very informative and great job with the captions!๐Ÿ˜Š
  6. @Dave in Pittsburgh Love that optimism! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Žโ˜ƒ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘
  7. @Dave in Pittsburgh Good luck! Just wish you didnโ€™t have to wait til October!
  8. @Mary Beth It worked well!๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. @Dave in Pittsburgh @Mary Beth While I donโ€™t know anything about the actual program my audiologist set up, what I have (as an additional program, used only when necessary) is a program that retains my levels of โ€œeverydayโ€ hearing in terms of voices, etc that I want to focus on but, at the same time, significantly reduces the extraneous, distracting background noises (such as in a restaurant or even in some stores). To achieve that, while she was doing the MAPping, my audiologist had me listen to a YouTube video (on her cellphone) designed to emulate a noisy bar/cocktail lounge. That allowed me to tell her what I was hearing, what was too distracting, etc and she was able to make the necessary adjustments in my program until we finally got it right. Iโ€™ve had several noise reduction programs over the years but I found listening to an actual noisy situation significantly helped her make more precise adjustments than previously.
  10. @Mary Beth The link in the post above still comes up unavailable. Do you have a newer link?
  11. @Mary Beth I have LiveTranscribe on my Android phone. Iโ€™ve used it without any connection to another device, just activated it on my phone, and have been surprised at how well it works. At a meeting with a speaker (who was using a microphone) it picked up everything he said.
  12. And as much as I do too! @Mary Beth @Stuman51
  13. @Mary Beth The Artone 3 MAX BT is an incredible neckloop! These devices definitely ARE very fun and cool!
  14. @Mary Beth Isnโ€™t it great that it works all over the house? Although my neckloop does not connect automatically, using the TVB is such fun!๐Ÿ˜Š
