  1. @Mary Beth What are MCL settings?
  2. I wish that the Sonnet 1 was smaller. If I wear it for 3 days straight the top of my ear hurts and gets bruised.
  3. I put on my processor just before leaving the house. I prefer to wear my Rondo2 most days and wear my Sonnet on days that I know I will have meetings. When I have meetings I use the Roger Pen which is a great help. If I have a webinar to watch on my PC I take out my Artone 3 Max and switch to T. Thankfully it works with both Rondo2 and Sonnet. I stay in the same program all day usually. I don't remember what maps I was given at my last appointment but I find I stay on the third one most of the time. If I wore the Sonnet to work when I get home I put on the Rondo2. If I go to the gym I wear the Sonnet cos Rondo2 keeps falling off if I jump. Thankfully I use a tether so it doesn't fall to the ground. If I'm going to a conference I prefer my Sonnet. I hardly watch TV but if I'm watching my old TV at home I wear my Sonnet and put the Roger Pen before one of the TV speakers. With newer TVs I hear just fine with the processors alone. But my TV at home is over 11 years. So this "hassle" is temporary.
  4. @Mary Beth Forgive my ignorance, when you connect that BT mic other people won't hear what's being said over the speakerphone from both the speakerphone and the BT mic?
  5. Hi @Mary Beth Yes I'm fine. No damage. It was scary. But thankfully the epicenter was far from the island. Thanks for checking.
  6. Hi @EvaD Exciting times ahead! Personally I think it's best to choose the CI that fits your lifestyle best and has the features you value most. It's a very big decision so take your time. Wishing you the very best on your journey. Please keep us posted.
  7. @Mary Beth Have you told Med-El USA that there is still a need for such workshops? I sure would love to attend one. I would like to try out the Roger Table Mic and the Roger Select before buying one.
  8. My employer met with me about my "medical condition." I realised that they would use my deafness to get rid of me. So I went to my audiologist who told me it was time for me to get a CI. I had been putting it off for years. I decided to go to the US and see if all I needed was the most powerful HA on the market or if I really did need a CI. Note they had told me I needed one about 6 years prior. But the meeting with my employer was the wakeup call for me.
  9. @Jdashiell Hi Joe, I tried to send you a private message but it says you cannot receive messages. Please send me a private message so I can reply.
  10. Well I met @Jdashiellon my activation day at the CI center. I just got my HP card but I don't know whether there will be a Meetup when I'm in Miami. I would surely go if there was one.
  11. Hey @Monte! Congratulations! I'm sure you're a pro now that this is your second CI. I hope the activation will be as good as if not better than the first one. Best wishes.
  12. You know this concerns me. There are certain apps that when I try to download them I get a message that the app is not available in my region. I wonder whether when the app is released in the US whether I would benefit from it in Jamaica if I had the AudioLink. It wouldn't be funny if it doesn't.
  13. That's great @Mary Featherston. Sounds like you and Ron have everything planned out! Hope all goes well.
  14. Great update @Mary Featherston. Glad you're enjoying your new job. Sounds like the house project will be completed in 2020. Best to get it done the way you envision it before moving everything in, just as you said. I'm sure being bilateral is a big advantage since you have to be the one dealing with the contractors etc. Do you find you're more independent now post CI?
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. @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. 😊
  18. 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!
  19. @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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Yes I did @Mary Beth. Right now I'm travelling overseas so I will have to complete it next week when I have time.
