The Rondo 2 is soooo light.  I tried on a demo and couldn’t believe how light it feels.  A big advancement over my beloved Rondo 1.

Cooking has so many cool sounds! Enjoy!

Hello there,  It was unreal!!   Everything was like robots and Micky Mouse, but then I could start to understand the audiologist voice and amazingly I could understand what she was saying to me without reading her lips!!  My daughter was with me and we had to pass the Kleenex .   I am finding paper, utensils, doors opening and closing and other sounds really loud.  I assume this will come to be normal. Perhaps each mapping will help this as well. But wow this was an amazing day for me....

@Mary Beth  I choose the Sonnet , I will be getting the Roger's select on my week follow up visit. I was considering purchasing the Rondo 2 for a second processor, I have 3 months from activation to buy it for half price.  Not sure I need it but had a hard time decided which processor to choose . I am happy with the Sonnet I'll have to think about the Rondo 2...

@Sandy123

I didn’t realize Canada had a promo like that which lets people buy a second processor at half price.  That is terrific!

It has been helpful to have a backup processor and I absolutely love the one piece Rondo designs for waterwear.

I am so happy your journey is starting off so well!

Thank you Mary Beth, I really appreciate this forum and all the advice. The receptionist asked me yesterday if I was excited I said no  lol Oh she said, I explained I didn't expect much for this visit and frankly I had my doubts it would work   lol.  But work it did,   super pleased..
