Wishing you the best!

Are you in the US?  If yes, is your CI center a one processor or two processor center?  Two processor centers let us choose 2 processors with each surgery so we have a back up.  Many choose one Sonnet 2 and one Rondo 3 so they can experience both types of processors.

Terrific!  Sonnet2 EAS is an electric acoustic processor (hybrid).

In the US there are 4 FDA approved CI brands for adults.  It is a great idea to get information from all the CI brands that your CI team list as choices for you.  This forum is hosted by Med-El . Almost everyone here uses Med-El implants.  The internal implant is called Synchrony 2 and there are many Med-El electrode arrays.  The processor from Med-El that uses combined acoustic and electric hearing is called Sonnet2 EAS.

Here is a link to why I chose Med-El.  I am so very thankful for this gift of hearing.  Everything sounds wonderful.  Speech and music.  

 If you follow this link and select your state you can sign up for a free one on one captioned zoom meeting with a Med-El rep for your area.  The reps are great at providing information and answering questions.

Oh thanks so much, i did follow the link and kinda got stuck in a loop. The dates provided were for past date 8/20 so i did select 8/ 26 ( iowa) but i have a day of appointments on that day with probably including the selection process, maybe i am jumping the gun, i am trying to get more info prior to 8/26 because my implant surg is 8/27. I was shown a few pieces of equipment last visit, and a med el book. So i guess its the sonnet2 eas. Im just anxious and wantvto be sure i get everything. In summary, i may be selecting processor on 8/26 and implanted 8/27! This group is great, i have been reading

Are you in Iowa?

Look at the top menu for the envelope icon.  I sent you a HearPeers mail message.
