    Cochlear and bimodal hearing aid

    Do you use the t-mic? It looks like it would bounce around. I'm really torn between AB and Cochlear, I like Kanso and AB doesn't have an offering yet that is similar. I also don't like the compilot, I had one for my Phonaks. I'd prefer a direct wireless connection. I'm really drawn to the...

    Cochlear and bimodal hearing aid

    I check out the Cochlear forums it doesn't seem like there is much there. I also signed the AB forum (hearing journey) but I can't figure out how to navigate it! It seems like a mess, I don't see any sub-forums just a bunch of posts with no reply's. How do you post on that forum? edit...

    Do you know how the hearing aid and cochlear "interact"? I sent cochlear an email but have not heard back yet. Here is what AB said how the AB/Phonak CI/HA work together: The Naida Link hearing aid is made to work with the Naida cochlear implant and is the only hearing aid that can do this...

    Cochlear and resound wireless accessories interchangeable

    I believe Chochlear Americas partnered with Resound like AB did with Phonak. I'm in the process of choosing a manufacturer right now and my audiologist mentioned this, however the info Cochlear sent me doesn't mentioned it. I sent them back a message requesting more information. I would like...

    Insurance And Hearing Aids

    For those of you wondering about insurance that covers HAs, I worked at an employer that had both Kaiser and United Health plans and both covered HAs. From what I remember they each offered about $3,500 every 3 yrs, this was about 3 yrs ago. Basically it all depends on what plan they select...

    Interesting, I've never listed my hearing loss as a disability. I would think that is only necessary if you need special accommodations?

    The Cochlear Implant Isn't Always What You Think It Is

    Really, why is it so hard for people to share information that would be beneficial to others. I'm not asking for names of individuals holding the jobs? Don't need to mention the company either. It would be nice to know where others have found success in employment with deafness? I also...
