    karenRS got a reaction from Mary Beth in Audio link   
    Thanks for that battery suggestion. It worked! I've been using the Power One implant batteries because I find it too annoying to change batteries in the middle of the day. I was just about to chuck the audiolink in a drawer much like I did with the Roger link and pen but I used the rechargeable batteries with the cable and audiolink and it solved the problem. Haven't tried the Artone neckloop but it can hook up to an iPad or phone or BT directly without having to use a microphone like the roger pen?

    Thanks for the information. I'm going to get a Synchrony 2. The first one (Synchrony) has been amazing. I was a bit reluctant to get it done as it will probably mean losing all my natural hearing and then having to adapt my house. Then I realized I don't hear things anyway (apart from my dog barking ). Only realized today I won't be able to hear the fire alarm if it went off at night

    That's a difficult one. I had my left ear implanted. Speech recognition was only 12%. With the implant, it's 93%.  My right ear which has the hearing aid is only 32% That test was over a year ago and I feel it is worse than that now. So I have really nothing to lose by getting the right ear done. It sounds like you have fairly good speech recognition with your hearing aid.

    I'm in exactly the same situation. Get some benefit from a hearing aid in my unimplanted ear but not much benefit and can only hear traffic noise and my dogs barking a hearing aid. Am  seeing the doc next month about getting this ear done. What decided me was the thought that if anything happened to my implanted ear, I would be unable to function. I can't hear with just my hearing aid in and no implant. I can't compare audiometry though, just practicalities. And surely hearing will be balanced with two implants.

    Thank you. The ThinkLabs One looks to be quite good.
