  1. @Mary Beth That is true I was going to need to replace the Sonnet anyway. I'll work on that after my next MAP appt. I am working with UCI in CA . Working with the UCI team has been awesome, a great group of people. Sounds like you've had your share having the opportunity to work with various research centers. That is so cool!
  2. @Mary Beth Good to hear your replacement works and you've identified the processor was the problem. I appreciate your input. I'm due to go back for a Mapping session in a little less than 2 weeks. I've been working with a team of researchers to achieve the most optimal Mapping program for me. We are going to check to see if the Fine Tuner feature accidentally got deactivated. If that is not the case, then we will move all of the the MAPs to my back up processor . It's possible the processor may be the problem because the unit underneath the microphone cover ( not the
  3. @Mary Beth Thank you for the additional information. I didn't even think of that, the possibility it could be a processor issue. At my next MAP update visit we are going to check to see if the Fine Tuner has been deactivated for this particular processor. If we are unable to resolve the Fine Tuner issue then we will move the programs over to the back up processor. Either way I'm confident we will figure out the glitch. Thank you a bunch for your help!
  4. @Mary Beth Thank you for getting back to me. I believe the issue is just as you said , the Fine Tuner settings accidentally got deactivated . The Fine tuner works fine when I pair it to my back up processor. The back up processor has MAP different setting and I'm able to adjust the volume and sensitivity levels. I appreciate your feedback!
  5. Hello HearPeers, I’ve been a Synchrony and Sonnet CI recipient for 3 years. I’ve been able to use the remote successfully all this time. But, recently with the new mapping I’m experiencing issues with the remote. The remote is paired to the processor and I’m able to switch from program to program. However, for some reason lately I am not able to adjust the volume or sensitivity level on the main processor. Why is it that? Why is this happening when I know the remote is paired because I can change from program to program via the remote? Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks!!
  6. Hello Mary Beth, Thank you very much for your input! I love my CI and cannot live without it. I've heard of the Vanderbilt studies but, I was not completely clear how they refine the MAPping process until you explained it. I am currently working with the local University of CA and trialing different MAPs. I have various MAPs with various electrodes turned off , the suspected problematic electrodes for me. However, I suspect the bigger issue is my brain. I have to wonder if my brain is not very receptive on receiving certain pitches. I will keep Vande
  7. Through my audiologist I've been turned over to a group of researchers at a local UC university here in southern CA. I've had a life long hearing deficit and my audiologist ( very familiar with Med El because she used to work for Med El)has been challenged finding the most optimal mapping in certain pitches.
  8. Yes, I’ll share a little background about myself. I’ve had lifelong hearing loss - since birth. Both ears qualified for CIs. Implanted the right ear that never really wore a hearing aid. Hearing aid in that ear didn’t help much and was validated in the audiogram. Mostly because I had a reverse slope hearing loss in that ear. I acoustically could hear chirping birds, “S” and “Sh” sounds in speech. In my mind the left ear (the hearing aid ear) is the dominant ear for piecing together conversations even though I have more hearing loss in that ear. Implanted with flex array 24 in the right

  10. Mary Beth, I am a happy Bimodal member. A CI in one ear and a hearing aid in the other ear makes a huge difference in my ability to hear and follow conversations.

  12. Hello KBear, I thought I’d chime in, what your experiencing is the same thing my mother went through with me as a young child. I was born at a time when very little resources were available for the hard of hearing and deaf children. At a time when the medical community didn’t understand the urgency on achieving early diagnosis and intervention. I was not formally diagnosed with my hearing deficit until 2 months before my fifth birthday. I was definitely behind in speech and language. In spite of the delays, with hard work I was mainstreamed and have a wonderful career. Trust your i
