Recommended Posts

I am going to be upgrading to a Rondo3 in the next few months. I also have the option of getting an audio link or artone 3. 
could someone help by telling me the difference between them along with some pros and cons. Thanks

The Artone neckloop requires using the telecoil adapter with Rondo 3 which many say causes a ticking interference sound.  Med-El recommends putting the Rondo 3 into flight mode to avoid that ticking.  I do not know any Rondo 3 users who are choosing to use the telecoil adapter.

This is not an issue with the Artone 3 and Sonnet2.  

Many Rondo 3 users are using the AudioLink.

What’re you planning to use them for?  That’ll help a bit.  Hopefully in the next few months, the AudioStream will be released in the states for the Rondo if all you’re looking to do is stream from phone or tablet.  
 

If you have the actual connector type on your TV and looking to stream from your TV, then you can choose the AudioLink.  

 

Artone uses Telecoil connection which also has a designated TV streamer.  If you’re Bimodal (CI+HA) and looking to stream to both sides, then this would be your main option currently.  
 

But more info would be helpful.

What are the advantages of using audio link over Artone 3?

I’m really not sure what I would use them for because I don’t know what they do. Right now I do not have any “streaming” devices.  I didn’t know if they were just streaming devices or would help my hearing in crowded spaces for example. If they are just streaming then I would say I’d use them for tv and phone.

here is my captioned review of the Artone .   I do not recommend it for Rondo 3 though.  That’s just my personal opinion.

I use it daily with Sonnets.

@Curly and @JohnL

this is the new AudioStream adapter for Rondo 3.  Not yet approved in the US.  It streams all audio from phone and tablet.

I have audio stream for my Sonnet 2. It will not stream bimodal with my hearing aid. I wonder if this will be the same?

bimodal steaming is a feature of dual audio for android phones with specific hearing aid models.  Med-El has a list of compatible phones and hearing aids on their website.  AudioStream works with dual audio.

They need to update their list of compatible phones. My Pixel 7 doesn't have dual audio capability.
