Renachelw Posted May 11, 2017 Report Share Posted May 11, 2017 Hi everyone, i'm new to this site. I'm from Singapore. My left ear has bad hearing since young and was discovered when I was 7. When I was 14, the hearing in my right ear suddenly went bad and I started wearing hearing aids. No i'm 21, and the situation has changed. My left ear is now the better ear, and my right ear is profoundly deaf, hearing aids don't help anymore. The doctors have encouraged me to go for CI in my right ear, and I believe that's all I can do now as there are no other options. Hence, I have a few questions and hope that I can find my answers here. I would just like to know if CI will sound very robotic given 2017's technology advancements? I used to have normal hearing and I'm wondering if it will sound very different. Will it eventually sound like normal hearing? Also, I used to play the violin before I got fitted with hearing aids, I was just wondering if it would be possible to play it again? Finally, does anyone use Cochlear's Kanso? Do you get the hair brushing against the mic sound, like hearing aids? Would BTE CI be better? It would be great if you could share your experiences. Thanks everyone Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
