  1. Mary Beth, can you explain to me the bi-modal options for using Roger at school, since my son would initially have 1 CI and 1 HA. How could he use Roger with Sonnet 2 and his HA, so that they are in sync? I am assuming the Rondo 3 would not be the best school/Roger option? Also, I learned tonight that Med EL is including a option for the Artone 3 Max in the new patient kit.
  2. Mary Beth, this is SO helpful. Thank you. I am going to be bringing this to the next IEP meeting, as well.
  3. Thank you! They use the Inspiro, and we have a Pen. I am going to look into the touchscreen mic.
  4. There is a man on the FB group Cochlear Implant Experiences who has a Cochlear and Med-El. I think his name is Jeff Bricker. You may want to search that forum.
  5. I don't have specific input, but I have noticed that the IP rating for Rondo 3 is the same as the AB Neptune, which is billed as a swimmable processor. To me, this means one could swim with the Rondo 3 without any need for waterproofing. Do you agree, or am I missing something?
  6. Hi everyone, I am the mother of an 11 year old CI candidate. Right now, he uses Roger technology with his hearing aids for school and sports (soccer, golf, basketball), and it is indispensible! I am assuming we will need ALD when he has implants, too I know Sonnet 2 has an integrated Roger battery covers, but does anyone know how Rondo 3 may work with the Roger? Also, if we don't get integrated covers, how does the Audiolink compare as an ALD for school or sports? Can we just use Audiolink (instead of Roger)? Or can we use a universal Roger receiver plugged into Audiolink? One c
  7. Great information, and very helpful. I also read the Audiolink manual. The max range is 9 feet, so it seems the FM would be a better choice for many sports. I guess alsoI did not know the max range was 9 feet. I assume that is why the Audiolink is not suitable for school use. What do you think, Mary Beth?
  8. I am going to ask Ear Gear if they'd make a custom pair for me with a shorter sleeve so the battery vents aren't covered.
  9. He does BUT I don't think that will work; he has some unique anatomy and the Ear Gear is the way we have been able to keep his hearing aids on so well (his pinna are very soft). Do you think the Ear Gear would be a problem since it covers the vents?
  10. I wish this would work, but my son has attached lobes (and a truly unique structure) that makes this kind of retention device impossible. We would need an earmold adaptor with very short tube (since regular hook was long for him) and the Ear Gear or at least something that can cinch in the middle at the back of his head and clip to shirt (imagine a Y shape coming from back of processors).
  11. I agree this is a big design flaw; in school settings the Sonnet 2 won't last the whole school day (not more than 6 hours) while using the Roger FM system. Forget it if a student has after school activities; s/he may need to change batteries 2 or 3x if using rechargeable.
  12. Hello, Does anyone have experience with using Ear Gear (retention device that has sleeves for the processors and a clip for clothing) with Sonnet or Sonnet 2? I read the Sonnet 2 manual, and it mentions "don't block the air vents on the battery covers because it may shorten battery life." I would need the Ear Gear to keep my son's processors secure, but am wondering how much that would shorten his battery life when he uses the Roger.
  13. I am thinking my son may like to plug his videogame in, or his Kindle tablet or stuff when you are on a plane. I asked about the USB because it seems more things are losing the cable jack.
  14. Hi, Can anyone tell me the range of Audiolink, when using as a remote mic? If my son got Sonnet 2s, and used the Audiolink for sports, etc. how close would be have to be to the person wearing the Audiolink to hear? Also, I know the Audiolink has an audioport for cable, but can I also plug in a device that has a USB type thing at the end rather than an old school round "headphone" type thing? I don't know the proper terminology, so don't let me know if you are laughing at me! Melissa
  15. Do you use 2 cable on each side for the Rondo, or do you just stream to one side?
