  1. Hi @Rick H Congratulations! Great that you're making rapid progress. I'm curious as to how you and @Tommy Cwill find the Sonnet 2. I prefer the Rondo2 to the Sonnet but I don't know how it stacks up against Sonnet 2. Many more wow moments ahead for you. I never had an echo problem. Hopefully your next mapping isn't far away. Which electrode did you get? I have Flex 28.
  2. Oh yes @Mary Beth. One of the best decisions I've made in my entire life! I have no regrets whatsoever although I am much deafer now since the surgery but once my processor is on I usually forget I'm deaf. In fact I was watching TV one night and all of a sudden I couldn't hear a thing! I checked the remote to see if the TV was on mute. It took me a while to realise that my battery for my processor had died! Lol! I guess I'm so used to tuning out the dead battery beeps.
  3. @Mary Beth I wore the Sonnet. A coworker asked if I needed someone to sit in on the calls and I confidently said I could handle them by myself. 😊
  4. I am so happy I found this forum and found out about the Artone. I use it often at work. In the past week I have held several calls over the computer with people overseas. I make out about 98% of what is said when I use the Artone! I love it!
  5. @SWS0107I'm not bilaterally implanted but my surgeon is the one who decided which ear to do first. Originally he wanted to do the worst ear but at my preop appointment he switched to the better ear.
  6. Sounds like fun @Mary Beth. I should have a mapping appointment that month so I could just leave Miami and head straight to New York. If I come I would definitely want to go over the Canadian border and look at the Falls from that end. Let's see how it goes.
  7. Hey @Valentin. I used my Rondo2 on Saturday starting around 8 am for around 2.5 hours. Then turned it off for about 3 hours. Then wore it for 9 hours. Slept for 5 hours then put it back on from around 6:20 am until it died the next day at around 11:20 am. By my calculations that was battery life of approximately 19 hours on 1 charge! I am very impressed with the Rondo2 battery life thus far.
  8. Yes I did @Mary Beth. Right now I'm travelling overseas so I will have to complete it next week when I have time.
  9. Hi @Mary Beth I usually get the email notifications. Not sure why I don't always get them but I got an email this morning about your tagging me.
  10. @Mary Beth Thanks. I'm actually preparing to come to the US for my mapping appointment next week. I had to push back my August appointment. Yes I'm now at 6 month appointments. By the way I love autoadaptive! I have been using it at my place of worship and it is a fuller sound than adaptive. Re your suggestion... I thought that when you use the Roger Pen there is no adjustment you can make with the fine tuner in terms of choosing which program to use....I am referring to the buttons with the dots. So how would that work with what you suggested?
  11. @Mary Beth It is a small device that uses VOIP, Voice over Internet Protocol. For a relatively small annual fee (USD39.99) you can make unlimited calls to the US and Canada. You can can call other countries too for a small additional charge. I have used it for the Cochlear line and to call Med-El as the regular landline prices here for international calls are expensive. I got mine at Walmart. I think Americans probably use it for free local calls.
  12. @Mary Beth Yes I bought a Magic Jack specifically for accessing that.
  13. @Mary Beth No wonder I have not found any Hands on Hearing workshops. Guess the Med-El Meetups aren't for me then.
  14. @Mary Beth I hardly ever adjust sensitivity settings. I don't notice much difference. I don't have a problem when there is one presenter who stands. My problem is when people are sitting around a large table and getting all that is said. I have a Roger 21 receiver. Would I need a MyLink to connect both the Pen and the Table Mic? It's a pity that I can't try all the available options before purchasing one. So which situations would AudioLink excel in?
  15. My GoTo ALDs were Artone 3 Max for webinars and Skype plus my Roger Pen for meetings at work
  16. Hey @Mary Beth We sometimes have meetings in a conference room which is on the 3rd floor and faces the street. When I'm in that room I can hear the vehicles zipping by. Although I use the Roger Pen in that situation I'm still hearing the vehicles so that doesn't make for a good listening situation. Then I have meetings in another room where people are seated around a huge circular table. I wasn't making out everything in that setting. So I'm wondering which device would be more helpful.... Select or AudioLink? I am interested in how you found both devices overall and which one you consider to be better. I haven't logged on to the webshop. Not sure how much for AudioLink but I believe the Select is for USD950.
  17. @Michael Drury Does Sonnet 2 carry the same mic setting options as Sonnet 1, i.e. Natural, adaptive, auto adaptive and omni? If so which of the above are you using in your Sonnet 2?
  18. That's awesome @Michael Drury! Happy for you! How long were you using the Sonnet 1 for and how many mappings did you have with that one?
  19. Hey @Michael Drury Saw that Med-El put a post of you on Facebook. Nice to put a face with the name 🙂
  20. @Mary Beth So AudioLink provides more flexibility in terms of mixing ratios? I don't intend to buy MyLink so I am comparing Roger 21/Select with Sonnet1/AudioLink.
  21. @Michael Drury What strength magnet do you have on the Rondo2? When was your CI surgery?
  22. @Mary Beth So you adjust the mix ratio of the AudioLink using AudioKey? I am waiting to hear reviews of persons who have Roger Select and AudioLink as I can only afford to buy one. Sonnet2, AudioLink, etc sound exciting!
  23. @Michael Drury That's awesome! How do you block out all the background noise?
