  1. I should be able to make it. It may be my last coffee chat until next year when daylight savings time starts again. Come November, I will be in the same time zone as @Mary Bethand I have another meeting at 10 a.m.so I would not be able to join for 9:30 a.m. coffee chat.
  2. @Tracey_66 You sounded normal to me. @Mary Beth It looks like the new receiver is the size of the Roger 21 battery cover. I wouldn't want that as it is larger than the regular battery cover and it is too big for my ear. Invariably it will fall off and so I have to use wigtape with the Roger 21 battery cover. If only it was the size of the regular battery cover then I would be interested.
  3. This is great! Is it a mic cover? @Mary Beth
  4. @Valentin I would love to see a demonstration during the coffee chat on Sunday. I'm only able to stay for the first hour or so, so I hope we can see that while I'm on.
  5. @tmscarlett10 I had surgery at a two processor center, meaning I could opt for two processors in my kit. I chose two Sonnets. Then, before my surgery, Med-El USA ran a PLUSRONDO promotion and so when the Rondo2 was released, I got a free Rondo2! So I have three processors for one ear 😊
  6. Hi @tmscarlett10 Welcome to HearPeers. I have sensorineural hearing loss in both ears. Both ears need a CI but I'm only implanted in one ear. I have Sonnet and Rondo2. I wear them interchangeably. I personally prefer Rondo2 especially now with COVID-19 where I have to wear a mask on my ears. I hear much better with Rondo2 but I find that Sonnet is better in noisy environments. However, this should not be an issue with Rondo3. If I was going to have surgery now I would probably go with Rondo 3. I see that Mary Beth has posted about the swap promotion. All the best with you
  7. @pdk @Brownielove20 I tried the troubleshooting tips on the Med-El website. Idk why my speech processor blinks even when I am not talking! Anyway, I decided to change the mic cover although I had changed it a few weeks ago. My voice doesn't sound as bad as it did before. It sounds more natural. I also switched between programs and my voice sounds pretty much the same on all 4 programs. I should have checked this before doing the mic cover change. Anyway I am good to go tomorrow!
  8. @Mary Featherston I will know when my hair fits that description and I will have to paint my hairclip accordingly 😜
  9. @Diane Yes there is a marked difference for me. I prefer Rondo2 and when I was tested with both, I scored higher with Rondo2. However, in very noisy environments I prefer Sonnet. The sound settings possible with Sonnet are different from Rondo2. Rondo2 only offers omnidirectional mic settings whereas Sonnet offers more mic options. However since Rondo3 has two mics and Rondo2 has two I'm expecting the sound from Rondo3 to be different from Rondo2. I also prefer Rondo2 now that we have to wear masks.
  10. Thanks @Mary Beth I've never seen this before. I will check when I get home. Since my October appointment all my programs except one sound awful so I stick to one program. Will still check when I get home as I don't have the fine tuner on me.
  11. @Mary Beth Actually I'm having this problem with the Rondo2. I don't know how to troubleshoot that. But when I get home I will check how my voice sounds with my Sonnets. Thanks.
  12. @Mary Beth I bought cheap, black, regular nail polish. I didn't apply a base coat. I just applied the polish to the top of the clip, that is, the side that is visible when I'm wearing the clip.
  13. @Diane I have Synchrony Pin Flex 28 and use Sonnet and Rondo2 on the same ear.
  14. This week I have noticed that my voice sounds robotic but all external sounds aren't. They sound the way they normally do, like how it was when I had normal hearing. I changed my mic cover and although there was a slight improvement, my voice still sounds robotic. Anyone else has experienced this? I can't figure out what else I should do in order to resolve the problem.
