Just started so I have a ton of questions. Here is one my audiologist pulsing answer. Instead of using an EAS BTE processor, can I use the Rondo 2 for high frequency and a hearing aid for low frequency?

This depends on the amount of residual hearing you have post CI surgery.

 

In theory, yes you can and there was a study by Rene Gifford at Vanderbilt published about exactly that.  I believe she reported that most users chose not to keep using the in the ear HA for low frequency.  (Even though the HA was free in the study and provided acoustic benefit.)

 

In practice, this is complicated.  Many CI audiologists do not adjust HAs even of their bimodal (one HA and one CI) users.  You would need to find an audiologist who is willing to do this.

Here is a link to a more current discussion about EAS and René Gifford mentions the older study I referenced.
