    Big congrats. Sounds like you are doing wonderfully.  I was at my one week post activation, I too have hearing very very well. It's not perfect but voices are sounding much better. The key thing for me was to be able to have conversations without lip reading 90 percent of the conversation.    Good times ahead...   😋

    Hello there,  It was unreal!!   Everything was like robots and Micky Mouse, but then I could start to understand the audiologist voice and amazingly I could understand what she was saying to me without reading her lips!!  My daughter was with me and we had to pass the Kleenex .   I am finding paper, utensils, doors opening and closing and other sounds really loud.  I assume this will come to be normal. Perhaps each mapping will help this as well. But wow this was an amazing day for me....

    Thank you Mary Beth. Yes I have read many people did not have a great activation. I will be ok as I am doing fine with the hearing aid in my right ear and reading lips. It's a start and so let the games begin..   lol

    I was just implanted at University Hospital London Ont. So far so good. I choose the Sonnet processor also along with the Roger Select. Activation day is July 16th, hoping for good things....

    Hi Everyone, 

    Today we launched our new SONNET 2 audio processor. Designed to help you hear your best, wherever your day takes you. It seamlessly adjusts to your environment and minimizes distracting noise, so you can chat with confidence. And if you want to change settings yourself, you can do it in seconds with the new AudioKey app. 

    With SONNET 2 you can stream music and phone calls directly to your processor using AudioLink, our new universal connectivity device. AudioLink even works a remote microphone, ideal for clear listening in meetings or classrooms. Enjoying sound has never been so simple!
    Rain, sweat, and dust are all taken care of thanks to SONNET 2’s water-resistant design. If you want to go swimming, just pop on WaterWear to make it fully waterproof. And with hundreds of color combinations, flexible battery options, and a modular design, it’s easy to fit SONNET 2 to your everyday life.

    Yes I have read so many replies from lovely people saying to be patient and not have to many expectations when they hook me up.    If I am one the lucky ones great but I doubt it, so I'll be ready for beeps and weird noises 🙂  .

    Interesting to note my team at the University Hospital in London Ontario told me they use med el only. My surgeon explained that he preferred that brand over the others concerning the actual implant not the processor.  However an online friend I meant on one of the FB groups lives in Belleview ON. I believe, her implant was done at Sunnybrook in Toronto and had a choice of several cochlear brand implants.    I was concerned that I did not have any options however having done some research I feel Med el will suit me just fine...

    Hello everyone,  My implant surgery is June 20, 2019 at  University  Hospital in London Ont. I am trying to decide on the Sonnet processor or Rondo 2 that I do hope is available.
    Any advice would be great.  Thank you
