No earmolds, that's why. At least I think so. :)

right. no earmolds, no sound squeaking out of the ear. all sounds go directly to the internal implant via the headpiece, not through the ear like a hearing aid.
HOH-ME, your audio gram.. Looks intimidatingly steep!!

It's also why I have such issues getting hearing aids fit. The sound recovery on the Q's is really nice. I've "heard" sounds I haven't heard in years, like the timer going off on my stove, the car beeping when I lock the doors, that kind of thing. Apparently my car beeps when I unlock the doors too---sorry to all the people I disturbed pushing the unlock about 5 times to make sure I got all the doors open :D
