BabyWear for adult use

I am finding that my Sonnet 2s with the AudioStream covers fall off my ears when I am doing floor exercises or bending over doing house work or yard work. Activity hooks don't help because the AudioStream covers are a little longer than the standard battery covers.   I have a BTE headband which works great to hold the Sonnets but it makes my shorter hair look goofy.   Has anyone tried the BabyWear with a 28cm cable?  That is the solution that I am considering as an off the head alternative to the BTE headband.  I have considered the ActiveWear but think that won't really solve the problem of keeping the processors on my ears during activity.

It is interesting how the length, design and weight of the processors interact with our ears.  I had thought the AudioStream may feel too long on my ears so I was pleasantly surprised that I actually prefer the weight distribution and length better with AudioStream on.  I use disposable batteries.  
 

I have read reports of adults using baby wear but those reports were not in reference to using AudioStream.

Any chance you can meet up with a Med-El rep or your audiologist and test it out before ordering?

Have you considered an open fit/large vent earmold?

I had not considered an ear mold. Would that keep the processor on the ear?  Like a hearing aid?  I would not really want to go that route- it was so wonderful not having to deal with something inside my ears after getting implants.  Of course,  it would be less like a hearing aid mold if it is open fit/large vent. 
Thanks for the suggestion and that adults have used BabyWear.  I would have to get the longer 28cm cable.

Quite a few adults choose to wear a large vented  earmold to secure their BTE CI processor.

It may be much less expensive than purchasing 28 cm cables and 2 sets of baby wear.

And it keeps the Sonnet2 mics in the location you are used to.

Thank you.  I had not considered that and will think about it.
