My name is Taryn. I have a congenital bilateral ski slope loss but my mid range has been decreasing. I recently learned I should be eligible for at least one cochlear implant (maybe two, depending on insurance and speech rec scores). I am currently researching different brands and experiences to be better armed when I find out if this is a decision I get to make.

Welcome to HearPeers!

 

Have you seen this about EAS?  It combines acoustic amplification for low frequencies and CI stimulation for mid and high frequencies.

Mary Beth - I am not a candidate. I initially looked into it, but it is not recommended for those who have had the "hearing loss" for over 30 years. I am 35. It makes sense; I think I would be massively overwhelmed if I had to try to make sense of two different kinds of input.
