I haven't used my roger pen yet as it's only new iv just been getting use to the Audiokey.

Once I get use to it I will let you guys know how it goes.

So far with the sonnet 2 I find it more clearer then the sonnet. The rondo 2 is pretty much in the same way as the sonnet 2 just with nothing behind my ear.

So I'm very happy with sonnet 2 also driving my car (my older classic car) which is very loud to drive due to the motor work I have had done I have got my audiologist to have a settings to switch to to shut the all background noise while driving and it works fantastic.

How do you like being bilateral?

 

Is this what you placed on the table in the loud pub with your friends?

At the start it was very hard and frustrating cause before the accident I was involved in my hearing was perfect then when i came to it from the coma I had nothing at all.....

Then 3 weeks after I had a little hearing on my right side which was only about 15%.

Then it only lasted about a week tyen woke up and gone.

But since havin both sides done it's great cause sometimes you just want to hear nothing and some days I run with nothing it's great lol.

And yes that's the remote I have and it was what I used at the table and worked absolutely awesome..

You sure have had a difficult time.  So sorry to hear of your accident.

Bilateral CI hearing amazes me too.

I am glad the AudioLink worked so well in a noisy pub for you.  Have you used it anywhere else yet?

Thank you........

Yea iv used it to watch TV whuch works well. Iv only used it a hand full if time with my phone to answer calls. I still like the artone the one you put around your neck the sounds quality with calls is really well. Iv got another hearing appointment next week for them to show me how to use the roger pen as well. So I'm looking forward to see how that works?

How do you go with phone calls??

sounds like we are similar in testing out tech and figuring out what works best for us in different situations.

I love the Artone also. Small, easy to use, streams all audio from my phone via BT.

At first I practiced the phone by switching to MT.  Then I started reading people’s posts about just holding the phone over the processor mic and staying on M. So I set that as a goal and practiced that.

Typically I just hold the phone over my processor mics.  Sometimes I use the Artone to be hands free.  Once while traveling I used my BOSE QC35 around the ear noise cancelling headphones for a call in a very noisy airport.

If I am holding the phone over my processor mic and there is noise, I pop off the coil on the other side.  That helps a lot!

The Jangus Music Wi AudioLink can be used as an IEM transmitter/receiver or a wireless instrument transmitter/receiver. It costs < $200 and includes the transmitter and receiver plus a bunch of cables. First off, I'm jumping the gun on this post because my initial reaction to this thing is great.

+ Great sound as an IEM system. It's not the same as wired but it's the closest I've ever had. The key to this is the 16bit 48Khz transmission.
+ Dropouts didn't kill my ears.
+ Great sound as a guitar system. I tried it with an AxeFX Ultra (front input). Again, this is not the same as wired but it comes close. I compared it to the Line 6 XD70 (same as G50/90) and it has slightly less presence while retaining the high end. I improved this by changing the gain but still felt the Line 6 was better.
+ Nice carrying case. I love this trend of shipping IEMs and other wireless gear with dedicated cases. This one isn't a Pelican but it has separate compartments for everything and provides quite a bit of protection.
+ Relatively low price. At $200, you can could get at least 2 for the price of 1 low end non-digital system.
+ Charging can be done via USB and the cable splits to two units. A power adapter is also supplied.
+ These have to be the smallest units out there. They look like first gen USB sticks.
+ Plenty of output for 16 ohm and 54 ohm headphones. I was worried about this b/c the Emu was lacking in this respect.
+ didn't interfere with my bluetooth (the emu did for whatever reason)
+ optional AA battery pack. I don't have this but would consider it for critical use. It's supposed to get 13 hours with the pack, 6 on the built in rechargeables.

- Plastic. I'd pay more for a metal enclosure. These things are relatively small so I'd live with the extra weight. I wouldn't step on these or let them swing and hit the ground attached to my guitar strap (something that happens quite a bit with my metal transmitters... I'm on the lookout for the perfect metal box to put this in... maybe one of those fancy gum containers.
- Non-locking Mini jack in/out. It has a solid fit and right angle cord but make sure the cable is secured link. The manual shows it under the belt loop.
- Buttons are not recessed so they could be pressed by accident in a pocket or by pressing against something - another reason to find that fancy gum container...
- Some signal degradation from wired. The units are so small and light that I believe they have compromised on the converters.
- No noise suppression. This can be done on the receiver side in an instrument setup so it's not a big deal but you can enable this on the Line 6's
- No removable battery. Either you wait to charge it or you use your backup that you purchased with the money saved :0)
- Latency may be pushing it as an IEM but not as an instrument system.
I have not tested for interference, distance (claimed 100 feet), or battery life (claimed 6 hours). I will be using it as an IEM system.

We may be discussing different AudioLinks. We are talking about the propriety intermediary streaming device for Med-El cochlear implants.  It is from Med-El and is the only option for streaming to our built in Sonnet/Sonnet 2 receivers.

Hi @Peppe89, It seems that this is indeed a different kind of AudioLink. You can read more about MED-EL's AudioLink here: https://www.medel.com/hearing-solutions/accessories/connectivity/audiolink. Kind regards, Mary
