Hello all!

Recommended Posts

I'm a VSB user. I was implanted unilaterally on my left ear in June 2010 and activated in August 2010. I absolutely love my implant and feel that it is so much better than hearing aids. I would recommend this implant to anybody who is dissatisfied with their hearing aids. I was looking to find another VSB user to share experiences with and tricks or tips that they use with their VSB. Unlike the cochlear, the VSB doesn't have the iPod plug in capability and since the microphone is on the VSB itself, I find it hard to use headphones to listen to music. Have any of you found any tricks to use headphones?

Hello Hetty Avivi,

I am not a Soundbridge, but a Bonebridge user... But have some experience by being a while here - what exactly interest you?

What kind of hearing loss do you have? Sensorineural, conductive ....?

Please, put here as much questions as you are interested in? We'll try to give you an appropriate answer.

;)

Will this dissapear in the future?can they fix it?

Hello Hetty,

well - yes: Samba is better from the acoustically point of view. Much better.

The secret is that you have to work with your audiometrist or who tune your Amade. If you can not get satisfactory hearing (without echos), try to contact your local Med-El representative. They help a lot with tuning because it's all they do. My audiometrist, at one point, couldn't make a significant progress (the processor started to howl) - then an engineer by Med-El resolved it in a minute.

Regarding your hearing loss - I am still not certain that I have understood you well: forgive me, I am not a native English speaker.

You have a mixed hearing loss on both ears?

what do you mean when you say that you have a complete loss at one side - you're deaf completly?

@hetty avivi @jahanna @kellylee @Jon Hi everyone! We've had a lady called Jude looking for advice about the VIBRANT SOUNDBRIDGE from others who have been on the journey. Jude posted yesterday on HearPeers looking for support (see below). I have offered to put Jude in contact with a medical specialist, however I'm sure Jude would really appreciate to hear about the experiences of others like yourselves! If you click through on the link below, you can leave a comment for Jude there.

Kind regards, 

Leigh
