Hi all

It's been awhile still learning the Cochlear Implant I have just completed level one and two and three and now working on the last level four.

Holly Molly!

Can be on the loud side and very much overwhelming.

How do you all do it?

I hear ryhum and the beat but not the words yet still robotic.

I am picking up some single sounds but not at the same time.

Still many trips to Boston Medical Center.

My next question is to purchase some items through Med El like (Round 2 clips short lease does certain insurance except?

I am so new to this.

Help!

Lori

@Lori Martin

Have you tried the reproducible sheets I posted?  They are very helpful at moving us up slowly.

Each audiologist activates us differently.  My audiologist was gentle.  I did not experience overwhelming sound.  
 

Do you have the ability to decrease your volume with the FineTuner?

Hi Mary Beth

My audiologist deleted level one and two off my remote, then will delete the last two levels.

Right now I am just working with level four with a lot of adjustments.

I would have to look back to see what you sent.

@Lori Martin I just tagged you where you can see practice sheets to help you on your way.

You are on program 4.  It takes a bit to get a stable program.  When do you return to your audiologist?

Hi Mary Beth

I have what you sent.

Thank you

Hi @Lori Martin! My Rondo 2 clip broke and my audiologist was able to call MED-EL and have them send me a new one free of charge because it was still under warranty. Ask your audiologist/MED-EL if you have questions about those accessories!

Hi @Marcy

Thank you for the information.

My processor and ear piece is under warranty but unsure about the rest. I will ask.

Thank you

I also am waiting to see if my insurance will cover new rondo 2 leashes.    I found it challenging to attach the new leash to the supplied hair clip.   There has got to be a way to design a better hair clip.

also I saw suggestion that rondo 2 picks up less hair noise if it’s turned upside down .  Trying that also makes using the hair clip challenging

I hadn’t heard about wearing the Rondo 2 upside down.  Interesting.  Let us know how that works for you.

 

I found this to be the easiest way to attach new Rondo 2 leashes.  A dear friend let me experiment with her Rondo 2 and leashes. But I agree.... there needs to be a better securing system for Rondo 2.

 

Cut a piece of thread about six inches long

Fold it in half and pass the looped end (not the open end) through one of the new leash’s circles.  Make sure you don’t pull the thread all the way through.  

Then pass it through your attachment piece.

Hook the looped end around the leash’ second circle and slowly guide it as you slowly pull the thread back out of the first circle.

This is like a needle threader for sewing.  A nylon needle threader would work too.  
 

But since Rondo 2 is promoted as the easiest CI processor to use, there should be an easy, reliable way to secure it in my opinion.

That is awesome, I also had to figure out my own way to put the new leash on and I also used thread with a needle to guide it through the tiny places. Yes I am one of many who wonders why the hair clip and the shirt clip are both awkward and not optimal. I might do the shirt clip more often if it weren’t so doggone uncomfortable in it’s design. 
Thank you very much for your comment

I have read so many comments about the Rondo 2 leash and securing options.  People agree it needs to be better.

I have been thinking about how I will secure the Rondo 2 if I get Rondo 2 when I upgrade soon.

If you find something that works for you, please share it with us.
