  1. Now Hells Bells sounds much better.
  2. Happened to me. Forgot not to blow my nose during winter. What you just experienced is one of the reasons why it’s one month post surgery for activation. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. I experienced the same worry until I researched online then I stopped worrying. Implant will still work but the first few weeks is a bit nerve wracking sometime. I was worry the implant was sliding out of cochlea or something.
  3. Is there info on AudioLonk? Tried to find but ended here from google.
  4. I did wonder what the 100/0 mix ratio meant. I would really like that option better. Leave the background out while listening. I’m going to look into it.
  5. She will turn on each electrode. First one was loud for me. I didn’t do it right because I didn’t understand what I supposed to do. I was supposed to stop her when it’s loud but comfortable. Beyond that, head bounces. Partly why papers were so loud for me the first week. I was unfamiliar with the last few electrodes which were in high frequency. Second visit, she turned off one electrode but turned back on at 3 months appointment. High frequency was my trouble for a while as I never heard them very well all my life. Im sure you will be more than fine, probably do better than I did, lol.
  6. Is Katherine your audiologist? I think they have more than one, I’m not sure.
  7. It was difficult beginning. 12 steps for electrodes and I chose stopping a bit too late. High frequency was something I haven’t learn all my life. I was born severe to profound and used hearing aid until this January. The 12 steps I did 3 times already, lol, it wasn’t easy for me. Some noises were just very different for me. Heard birds and I love that. I really like hearing birds. Speeches were difficult in beginning as you all know but I never heard consonant until after activation. That is still take some getting used to, so many words that I’m hearing correctly for first time. I have Roger pen that I use for tv and audiobook. The downside of my Roger pen is I can’t use Bluetooth for audiobook, had to be plugged into jack which I’m not understanding. iPhone and iPad has Libby app and can download audiobooks but Bluetooth won’t work with it. I tried other apps such as YouTube, gotta be plugged into jack. Bluetooth works for phone, that’s it. That’s something I don’t get with Roger pen, I must be doing something wrong. Unpaired and repair but it didn’t work. Gonna check out forums about it.
  8. Nice to see someone else in here who was implanted in London as well. I am a Canadian who was implanted January and activated in February and decided on Sonnet over Rondo 2. Directional microphone was the reason.
