  1. I had sudden onset of single sided deafness three and a half years ago in my left ear. It was diagnosed as sensorineuro hearing loss. My right ear has normal hearing but has had one recent surgery to remove inflammatory tissue from my middle ear. Since the onset of hearing loss, I have had great difficulty localizing sound and also hearing in noisy environments. I am hoping that the cochlear implant will help me with these. Localizing sound is a safety issue for me as I do a lot of walking and bicycling in the community. I would love to hear from others with single sided deafness with nor
  2. I have purchased the Artone 3 Max & TVB combo. I am able to get the processors to work with the Artone max 3. I don't understand the instructions for the TVB. I have searched the web for any instructional videos but came up empty. Can anyone out there help?

    My First Concert

    Hi everyone. I attended my first concert since getting my CI last year. It was a couple of local musicians as well as Air Supply. I decided to wear my Sonnet to this outdoor event. There were over 1500 people in attendance. Some of the performers I was hearing for the first time ever, so I wasn't acquainted with their music. The first one I could hardly make out the actual lyrics but I was able to make out the music. Maybe I couldn't make out the lyrics cos the performer had the mic so close to her mouth. Things got better with the male performers, and I recognised some tunes
  4. Hello! I'm a social activist mixed media artist and I have a campaign going on right now where I'm looking for pictures of people who wear cochlear implants with musical instruments to inspire my paintings in honor of International Cochlear Implant Awareness Day (February 25th) - see image here for an example. To send me a picture, please go to: https://myluckyears.com/valentines/ To see my art related to hearing loss, visit: https://myluckyears.com Images can be submitted until the 25th. Don't worry about the picture being perfect. I will be adapting and using my creativit

    Pandora Music

    Maybe I’m late to the Pandora Party, but now a good amount of songs have lyrics included! I found it today when I was shuffling through my Maroon 5 & Flo Rida stations ? I know we have some newly activated/switched on people (and soon to be activated) and thought it might help! Tag anyone I missed!!! @Mary Featherston @Kara of Canada @stranger @Dave in Pittsburgh
  6. Marjorie Monroe-Fischer

    Greetings! Any former musicians?

    Hello! I am Marjorie Monroe-Fischer, and a complete newbie! I was implanted 11 days ago, and get ‘turned on’ next Tuesday. I am anxious about how quickly I will be able to understand speech, and how well I will be able to hear music. I have been a professional musician my whole life until losing my hearing 4 years ago. I have a doctorate in conducting - my hearing was exceptional. Were any of you musicians before hearing loss? I would love to chat with you!! Actually, I would love to chat with anyone who has gone through this recently enough to remember their beginning with a CI. Th

    Hello From Arkansas

    Hello all. i am currently looking into getting a Cochlear Implant. I am 35 years old. I began losing my hearing when I was 9 years old. I have nerve deafness, and I am told that I am down to 24% in the area of speech recognition. I should also mention that I was born totally blind. What I am seeing so far from researching the pros and cons, is that speech perception with the implants is usually pretty awesome. Music on the other hand, is very poor. I have been told that my music appreciation will drop to zero. I am wondering if any of you play music. If so, do you play solo, in a band, or both

    Musical Ear Syndrome

    If you follow the link below, you will find an amusing cartoon about the ghost music some of us are hearing. I'm currently listening to the same repeated passage from "America the Beautiful" with a backdrop sound of a crying baby. Not great for relaxation. http://www.gocomics.com/pickles/2016/11/27

    I am hearing again!

    Hello Hearpeers I am overwhelmed with happiness to be hearing again ... But I will go to the beginning of my story... I had NEVER had any issues with ears or hearing at all until this past January (2016) when I went to my doctor with pressure in one ear and was told it was a viral ear infection. This virus proceeded to knock out ALL hearing in BOTH EARS within 3 weeks. By February 14, I was completely deaf in both ears. Profoundly. Also my balance was affected and I am still quite dizzy. Tinnitus was enough to cause me much grief ...It continues but when the CI is on it is not too notice
