  1. I have a neck loop for my Rondos. On the plane I will be wearing my sonnets. I don’t use the roger pen as I find it easier to hold phone to microphone on ear piece. Do I need to set the fine tuner on M?
  2. Okay, I admit I am intimidated by my fine tuner. I don’t understand which or what I am suppose to use when. @Jewel said she switches to program she uses the least. How do I know? @Mary Beth said she keeps it on M. Why? I understand it is the microphone. I guess I’m a bit confused. Can anyone enlighten me?
  3. When @Jewel you travel, do you take both types of processors? I have both sonnets and rondos. Is it better to take both?

    @Mary Beth I am sending a email to my audiologist this evening. In the meantime would it help to use my finetuner to decrease the volume?

    I began using my Rondo 2’s about five weeks ago. I really love them. They are my go-to processors for mornings, upon first rising. The first few days and continuing even now I have been experiencing daily headaches. My Rondo 2’s make sounds clearer and louder and better. After 4-6 hours of wearing them, I have to remove them, take ibuprofen and wait for headache to subside. I am wondering if anyone else experienced this.
  6. I have all of my accessories sitting on a shelf of my book case sitting next to my bed. Not the best idea since I have several cats. I wanted to find out what others do. I want to keep everything together; my chargers (total 6), dryer, roger pens, fine tuners, Artone 3 MAX and charger. There must be a better organized and safer way. Thanks for any ideas.
  7. rI called America Airlines to ensure that my seats are all on the aisle. The receptionist transferred me to an operator within “Special Seating “. I explained that I have Cochlear Implants and will need to sit in a aisle seat. I was given upgraded seats to aisle seats and she ensured every seat was away from the engine. They see being deaf as a disability, even though I don’t. But because of this, I was not charged extra for these upgrades. All airlines do this. When you call reservations simply ask to speak to someone in special sitting. Explain you wear Cochlear Implants and cannot sit near window and the engine. @Jewel I hope this helps you and others as you fly.
  8. @Jewel Why don't you like sitting by window since getting CI's?
  9. I’m preparing to travel for the first time since receiving my implants. I will be traveling by plane from Kentucky to North Carolina. I have a few questions that I hope you can help me with. Just so you know I have the Sonnet and Rondo 2. Does it matter which pair I wear on the plane? Any special precautions needed when going through security or TSA? How do I pack my CI’s and all the needed accessories? Thanks for reading. Anything else you think of that could help I would appreciate.
  10. Mary Beth, thanks for your lists. Doesn't seem quite fair that every Rondo 2 user did not get the same boxes. Oh well, not the first time. I don't quite understand how to use phone with Rondo and placing it on MT. Could you explain? I have looked at the Artone 3 MAX BT Neckloop. Is this something that comes with everything included? Thank you
  11. I received my Rondo 2 bilaterally this past Friday. I do find the volume a bit loud otherwise until today I really liked them. Today I wore them out to a doctor appointment. I found myself in a predicament that I urgently needed to use my phone (iPhone) and I could not. What am I supposed to do? If they cannot be an asset in a emergency situation, not good.

    Rehab games

    Thank you for the names of more rehab apps. I found some I did not like and was getting bored using the same one over and over. Sorry I have been away for awhile but the holidays are difficult for me and my spouse as it was only last year in January her father died. But it is good to be back among friends.

    Fine Tuner

    I have synced both sonnets. Found information on YouTube. I still don’t know how to do programs or change settings.

    Fine Tuner

    I received a huge box in the post today. Everything that was on back order arrived on my doorstep. Received my dry box, rechargeable batteries, and my fine tuner. I understand everything about my fine tuner except for the program buttons. I could not locate anything on the net that gave instructions for use. Also, am I suppose to carry my fine tuner with me at all times?
