Lisa Y Posted April 21 Report Share Posted April 21 I am a professional flutist who experienced SSD when I was 30 years old. I used one ear exclusively for 17 years as there was nothing medically available to help me. 8 years ago I obtained a bone anchored hearing aid. Perceiving the sound occurring on my bad side enabled me to once again play in orchestras. Due to ongoing skin problems around my metal abutment site, I am strongly considering switching to a CI. I am interested in hearing from others with SSD and a CI. In particular, I would like to know if you experienced hearing different musical pitches in each ear long term, or if that issue ultimately normalized. Do you perceive hearing music in stereo sound? Are you able to once again locate where sounds are coming from? Also, is Med-El the manufacturer of your CI or do you have an CI made by another company? I so appreciate any feedback you are able to offer. Lisa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
