    @Liz
    It does take testing different things out in different situations to find what works best for each of us.  Good luck

    Yes the AudioLink gives me problems too.
    Tech is funny.  Devices may be advertised to connect with various sound sources but they may connect in ways that are not user friendly or really be designed for use as a remote mic for speech.
    TV options with some pros/cons 
    TVB:  you already have the Artone so you know how things sound.  It is rather inexpensive.  It can connect to other sound sources too (like a laptop that for some strange reason will not connect with the neckloop).  Using MT we get a mix and using T just TV audio. Easy to adjust sound by using the volume on the neckloop.   Depending on your TV, there may be a slight audio delay.  If there is you may be able to adjust the audio of your TV to remove the delay.  If you are watching TV alone, you can actually mute the TV and hear fine with the neckloop.
     
    Roger Select/Pen with Roger 21 Sonnet/Sonnet 2 battery cover receivers:  For me it does great for speech on TV but other sounds are not balanced.  Like it heightens speech a bit.  Hard to explain.  With the Roger 21 receiver there is no way to listen solely to the TV.  It will always be a mix.  No need to use telecoil.  The only volume control we have is through the Sonnet/Sonnet 2.  (Roger with the Roger MyLink neckloop receiver gives more options but we must be on MT/T).  Sonnet 21 receivers are expensive.
    There is no one perfect solution.  It just depends on what is a good match for us personally.

    In the US, Med-El US has not included the Artone neckloop in any kits during the 5+ years I have been implanted.  It seems each country decides what it includes in activation kits and in upgrade kits.  During the 5+ years, there have been numerous changes of items included in kits in the US.  But never an option for the Artone neckloop.  Fortunately compared to other connectivity devices, the Artone is not very expensive.
    I learned about the Artone from Med-El Innsbruck and have been a fan ever since. I have been using it for 4 years now.  It is my most used piece of tech.
    How do you plan on using the TVB?  I have it connected to my TV but hardly use it since I hear the TV quite well with just my processors.
    @Joan Have you been using your TVB lately?

    Liz reacted to Mary Beth in Sony noise cancelling headphones.   
    @Liz
    All noise cancelling headphones are designed to block noise at the ear canal position within the cup (the center). Since our mics are not in the center, we do not get the same level of noise canceling as acoustic listeners.

    @liz unfortunately Medel does not refund once box is opened but I could be wrong.  They will work with you on exchange until you are satisfied.  My second one is so totally different from the first.  Keep me posted.

    @LizMay I I suggest you contact you your Medel rep(different for Canadians).  We do not have a rep.  I am sure they will replace it.  I had to go through my audiologist for my replacement

    My AudioLink has intermittent connectivity and static problems but it has not sent a loud sound.  It has sounded odd when it is reconnecting to one of my Sonnets after dropping the connection but that is the audio syncing up and again it is not loud.
    Sorry this is happening.
