  1. I don't think this is tinnitus. I have had some tinnitus when I don't have my CI's on for as long as I can remember and like you say, when I have my CI's on I don't generally even notice the tinnitus. When this noise starts up there isn't any ignoring it, it can at times, almost drowned out the voice of anyone talking to me, and every once in a while it will stops for a few minutes and everything seems wonderfully quiet. I'm trying some allergy medicine now. I don't expect it to make a difference but it's worth a try. Thanks for your interest Mary Beth. I appreciate your input.
  2. I've started having a problem and wondering if I'm the only one who has had it. I have bilateral Sonnets (Synchrony implants) and Rondo 2's. Yesterday morning I put the Sonnets on and the left one started buzzing and crackling and popping (static). It would stop then start up again when it amplified a sound. I took the Sonnet right off of my head and the noise kept going off and on. I switched to the Rondos and took the left Rondo off of my head with the same results, crackling and buzzing off and on. During the night I woke up several times to the noise and would be awake from maybe ½ hour before the noise would subside to where I could sleep again. Yesterday I emailed Med-el and my audiologist but haven't hear back from ether one yet. I hope I don't go crazy before the problem get solved.
  3. Mary Beth Thank you for the information. I'm not familiar with GripWear. I will have to check into it. I will be ordering new batteries in a month or two so I will be sure I get the power one type. Thanks again
  4. I've been trying Mary Beth's idea of changing sonnet disposable batteries every other morning. That works good for the first day. Often the batteries will give out at 7-9 the second night. Then sometimes I put the Rondos 2 on for the last hour or two of that day and then wear them again the next day. I don't prefer one over the other much as far as sound goes. My gripe about Rondos 2 is that they fall off so easily. My plus for Rondos 2 is that they are more predictable and I seldom have one go out on me so long as I charge it up each night. My Sonnets stay on better and I tend to prefer them when they are working. The minus for the Sonnets is sometimes first thing in the morning I have to play with them a little to get them going and the disposable batteries aren't as dependable.

    Processor failure?

    Did you try cleaning the contacts with a q-tip and a little bit of alcohol
  7. Mary Beth, thankyou for the refresher on using my fine tuner. I was thinking that I had accidently got the keyboard lock on and was pushing buttons accordingly, (it wasn't locked) and I think the one Sonnet wasn't paired. All is going fine now. I like my Sonnets I just wish the batteries and battery covers would last a little longer. I wear my Rondos 1-2 days a week and I like them to but I don't do as well with them on the telephone and when my hair is short I have a hard time getting the hair clips to fasten good. Thanks again for your help
  8. I have bilaterial sonnets. I like to just use one fine tuner. Can you tell me what the procedure is I would go through to turn the volume up or down on one side or the other. I'm never sure what I'm doing. Maybe that is set up by the audi. For a starter, how would I tell if the keyboard lock is on or not.
  9. I'm sorry for the mess this post is. I realized I know the answer to my own question. Thanks for putting up with me
  10. It's good to know how to connect both rondos to the same fine tuner. Should those same procedures work with the sonnets. I don't change it that often and when I do I'm never quite sure if I'm doing it right. I'm always just experimenting.
  11. Believe it or not, having a superior warranty was one of the reasons some of us picked for going with Med El. Just the other day I read something on this site about Med El having a better warranty, and commented to my wife that that was one reason I picked Med El.
  12. Mary Beth, thankyou for your help. Turns out the battery cover is still under warranty
  13. I wear Sonnets. The battery covers are the same for each sonnet. I get a weak battery beeps about every 20 minutes with the right processor. I switched battery cover sides and that switched the problem to the other side. Therefore, I think I have a bad battery cover. I put a star sticker on the one I think is bad, but maybe I should keep them separate even before one goes bad.
  14. How do you get the serial number. What I see of the serial number is so small I can't read it even with a magnify glass, and how do you keep the common parts separate from each other. For example how do you keep the battery covers separate from each other.
