Music with CIs

Recommended Posts

I have been intrigued by posts about music and cochlear implants recently.  People talk about enjoying music in spite of the limitations of listening with their CIs.  
 

My experience with listening to music with my CIs is so different.  I enjoy music because of the listening my CIs have returned to me.  Music sounds awesome and I listen to music every day.  All kinds of music.  In all different settings.

 

What is your experience with listening to music with your CI?  Are you enjoying music in spite of your CI or are you enjoying music because of your CI?  Which processor are you using?

Great topic!

I enjoy music in the real world very well, but this is with 1 CI and 1 'normal' ear.

However when I am listening plugged in to my CI it is still musical but strange sounding and I can't always pick the instruments or exact melody, though this is definitely improving. I have an impression of what I'm hearing but not all the details. I am now 9 months in.

I am currently focusing on the music sections of the angel sounds training as I am keen to improve this area.

@Kylie

Tge app Auralia Pitch Comparison helped me progress with music.  I think it costs 2 or 3 US dollars.  Well worth it.

Enjoy your music journey.  I am happy things are progressing so well for you.

I am curious whether you still prefer people to speak on your acoustic side or if sides no longer matter to you for speech?

@Mary Beth

Thanks for the recommendation.

For speech it doesn't really matter, even in crowds I can usually hear all around me pretty well. It's so good!!!
