    @Mary Beth Thanks, I appreciate the comment. Since I use a 1 on my Rondo1s, I’ll definitely choose the same for my Rondo2s...can’t get one any weaker!

    It’s great that the waterwear covers worked so well in both situations. A very clever alternative use for them.😊

    @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!

    @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.

    @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!😄

    Joan got a reaction from Mary Beth in 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 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?

    @Jdashiell I ditto @Mary Beth...enjoy your Rondo2 and your freed up ear “real estate” (one of my favorite things about my Rondos!)!  And please do keep us posted on the battery. Hoping for Rondo2s of my own within a year.😊

    Thanks for the link @Mary Beth
    @Vera thank you so much for this incredible series! You and Nigel have such a wonderful way of putting into words, both the positives and the negatives, what you and so many of us have experienced on our hearing journey. My experiences, both in the years leading up to and after being implanted, have paralleled yours in nearly every way...right down to your reticence to use a telephone again. That was my last “hurdle” too. All the best to you...as you continue to turn the tables on Nigel’s hearing!😊
