Music is huge, I can't imagine life without it. I've got it on right now. I would get a CI just for that if I had to.
As a person that can hear, i understand where you are coming from, what you have to realize is that for some reason i have yet to understand, some deaf people feel this incredible zelious towards staying deaf and keeping other deaf people from being able to hear. My views on those people i will keep to myself.
