No issues, they are fine, we put them through what they are designed to withstand. No ocean waves
Yes, she uses her N5s all day, everyday -- she's had CIs since 2007 and 2008, upgraded processors to N5s for the past 2 years (although we still keep her Freedoms as back-ups, just in case). When she had just one, she often tired of it by afternoon and took it off around 4, since she's had two, we have to pry them away from her in bed, or after she falls asleep. At school (she's at a school for the deaf where ASL is the primary language), they used to remove them from the kids to help enforce the voices-off periods and always when on field trips to avoid losing something, but we typically wind them pretty securely on her ponytails, so they rarely do that anymore.
