    Who already has Rondo 2 or is waiting to receive Rondo 2?

    Mine didn't. My audiologist changed the strength of my magnet a couple of times but it wasn't in my boxes. I imagine that most often people use a magnet that works for most; it's a lot more economical to provide replacement magnets to the clinics than to ship them to a bunch of people who will likely not use them.

    I emailed my audiologist and she confirmed that she has mine, so I'll receive them next Wednesday!

    Quick intros

    Hello @Kylie! Welcome! I hope you can resume your singing too. What a cute Lego village you have there!

    @Jewel is it possible they have it and just didn't say anything, knowing you're due to come in? Last time I spoke to my audiologist we agreed that she would email if they arrived early enough to make a separate appointment worthwhile and otherwise we'd take care of it next week. (I hope, I hope)

    Not saying WOW on this.

    Usually. But I dislike being dependent like that. I started traveling by myself when I was twenty. And it's not that I was really worried, just that the dream left me feeling weird and unsettled. Just a bit of Tuesday weirdness, I'm over it. 🙂

    Not saying WOW on this.

    Last night I had a really odd dream. I was in Montreal (where I've never been) in the airport and had missed my plane. Somehow I got a ride to a (kind of icky) hotel, but I was worried because I'm not yet good with the phone, and how was I going to get another ticket? It was really unsettling, I woke up feeling isolated and odd. I'm pretty sure I know where the idea entered my head - an acquaintance actually did have a similar experience this week. She was in Spain, missed her plane back to Australia, and was unable to get a hotel room and spent the night in the terminal. Then her cell phone died and she couldn't make calls to buy another ticket. So I blame my dream on Jennifer. 😄 But I really didn't like the feeling the dream left me with. And I don't think I'd react that way anyway - I'm not at all nervous about traveling. It was just weird.

    I hope so! I was really hoping to get them next week. Thanks, @Dave in Pittsburgh and @Mary Beth

    @Mary Beth to the clinic. It's still possible they'll be there by next Wednesday, but I'm actually less confident now that I've received the card.

    Today I received a card in the mail from Med-El saying they would be shipping my Rondo2s "soon". I really hope they mean the soon part. I have an audiology appointment a week from tomorrow.

    Comfortable listening on LONG flights

    I would have thought that Chrome and Firefox would work. Do you use Edge much? I'm not wild about it.
  11. I never really did think of myself as disabled. I had some high-level coping skills and just somehow managed for a long time. It wasn't till I embarked on my CI journey that I actually came to realize that this isn't just a minor thing, it's a serious disability. I guess I was good at kidding myself! I actually blogged about this back in March: https://hearinglisten.blogspot.com/2018/03/then-this-occurred-to-me.html
  12. I could, @Mary Beth, but I don't know if I'd be able to tell at this stage of rehab with the new one. I can give it a whirl if you'd like.
  13. My audiologist started me on it and I never moved to Natural. I haven't seen any benefit of Natural - I like pulling sound from all around.
  14. Same here, I'm in Omni almost all the time. I use Adaptive in the plant, where the automated machines make a lot of background noise, or in restaurants. But mostly it's Omni.

    That would surprise me. Did you try with Firefox? Maybe your problem was Chrome.
