HearPeers Heroes Mary Beth Posted October 6, 2020 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted October 6, 2020 EDITED on 11/18/2020 after learning that Rondo 3 battery life is now being stated as “over 18 hours” instead of “up to 24 hours”. This was disappointing. We also heard that a lot of streaming can reduce Rondo 3 battery life by 20%. I have spent a lot of time lately pondering which processor to choose as my next processor. I have decided on Rondo 3. Thank you to all of the happy Rondo 2 users for your posts. It really made me consider choosing the Rondo family. Many people who are fortunate to have both Sonnet 1 or 2 and Rondo 2 processors have commented about choosing to use Rondo 2 except in noise where the dual mics of Sonnets are helpful. So many people have chosen this same thing. Now that Rondo 3 has dual mics and uses the same adaptive intelligence as Sonnet 2 (ASM3), it should perform just as well in noise as Sonnet 2. There will be no need to switch. At first the lack of an internal telecoil in Rondo 3 gave me pause. But then I saw a picture of the telecoil adapter and learned that our audiologists can set up a telecoil only program. This relieved my concerns about being able to use my beloved Artone neckloop on 100/0 mix ratio. I look forward to trying the AudioLink with Rondo 3 and hope it works well. I am thankful for the increased battery life of Rondo 3 (up to 24 hours). (See EDIT at top) And the ability to charge it while wearing it if needed. And very happy that an indicator light will let me know remaining battery life. I like the new secure attachment brackets. Still not a fan of a small alligator clip for hair attachments but think I can swap that out with a clip. I love the look of Rondo 3. Smile I am thankful that Rondo 3 can use an app as a remote. That’s convenient. I still wish for direct streaming of all phone audio to Rondo 3 and hope that something similar to the Sonnet 1 & 2 AudioStream cover is in the plans for Rondo 3. It could plug into the port just like the telecoil adapter. Thank you Med-El @MED-EL Moderator for all of the cool features of Rondo 3. As soon as ASM 3 is FDA approved, I can not wait to upgrade to Rondo 3 and experience adaptive intelligence. It is really exciting to have all these new tech features available. It makes my CI journey so exciting! Megan L., Valentin, MED-EL Moderator and 4 others 6 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
