    Bluetooth issues with iphone (can't pair both devices at same time)

    I wear both a cochlear implant on the Left and and a Resound HA on the Right. I woke this morning to find that my Resound hearing aid was no longer connecting to my iphone. I was previously using BT connectivity to both my cochlear on the Left and Resound HA on the right without any issues. I...

    Interesting study in case you are prelingually deaf looking for a CI and you don't know if you would be a suitable candidate

    It is known that the CI gives the best results in those postlingually deafened adults and the prelingually infants (at 1 year old). But usually gives bad results on prelingually deaf adults, the reason behind it is that the auditory cortex has been never stimulated, hence even if you try to...

    I am going tomorrow for an evaluation for a CI. I am profoundly deaf. One side is completely deaf. And that is the side they will do the CI. On the side where I have a little hearing, I have vertigo. I overcome it with exercise (I exercise every day to control it). My fear is with the CI, and...

    Gentamicin ototoxicity and ci's

    I apologize if this is a repeat question. I was told my hearing loss was caused by gentamicin ototoxicity as an infant. When I was about 6 or 7, my parents were told I wasn't a candidate for a CI and we never looked into it again. Now that I'm older, I'm starting the process to get formally...

    Cochlear implant debate

    Hey so I myself aren’t deaf or hard of hearing but I’m taking an ASL class and my teacher (who is hard of hearing) told us that cochlear implants are a controversial issue in the deaf community. This kind of confused me and I was hoping I could understand the debate better. Do some people think...

    Whether to consider hearing aids/cochlear

    My five year-old daughter has no hearing in one ear and less than 10% in the other. She was born hearing, but exposure to the CMV virus in utero has resulted in her gradually losing her hearing. She will be starting at a school for the deaf and heard of hearing next week. My ex-wife is refusing...

    What type of hearing device do you use?

    I have noticed a lot of threads in this forum about cochlear implants, and I was wondering how many people in this group actually use hearing aids vs cochlear implants vs bone anchored hearing aids, etc. Thanks for sharing your response!

    Esprit 3g Coil Cable Needed

    This is my first time on alldeaf.com. I'm not even sure if I'm allowed to do this, but earlier today the coil cable on cochlear implant went out. It was my only one. Cochlear won't send me another one due to it bein discontinued. I have had this hearing ever since I had my surgery in 2004. I...
