monikka Posted January 27, 2014 Report Share Posted January 27, 2014 Hello, I am a musician considering getting a unilateral CI but concerned about how it might affect my hearing and playing music. Are there any musicians out there who have a unilateral implant? It is important for me to understand how this surgery could affect this very important part of my life! For years after a car accident my hearing on the left has steadily declined. In the last years I've become completely deaf on that side. My other ear hears perfectly. If you are a musician with a unilateral implant or share a similar experience could you tell me about your experience? The model I'm considering getting is the Rondo. Does music sound different? Does the functional ear become dominant? Does music sound tinny? And does musical appreciation go back to normal one-sided if you remove the device? And does it affect pitch-recognition in any way? Thanks in advance for your input! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
