Disappointment with results

Doug Brainard

Recommended Posts

Like the previous note from the SSD patient I’ve had disappointing results with my Bonebridge implant. I am an SSD patient and  I have received no perceivable benefit from my implant after 6 months.  Restaurants and other social settings are still huge challenges with little satisfaction from the device.  I’m not sure of why and don’t receive real explanations or support from Med Al.  I’d be wary of this as a potential new patient  sitting with my wife in the car as a driver I hear no better than without the device.

What kind of hearing loss do you have? Sensorineural or conductive?

Not gonna lie, I have had the opposite experience in basically every regard. I have conductive hearing loss on one side and I am very satisfied with the Samba 2, especially in noisy environments. The Samba 1 was OK in places like restaurants but the 2 is very good at picking out whoever you're looking at and talking to even in a big crowd.

Same with driving. With the Samba 1, I couldn't turn my radio up too loud cuz the road noise would go up as well, but the Samba 2 filters out road noise effectively even with music.
