I am thinking of looking into if my insurance (Medicare and Medicaid) will cover a second CI for me. I want to know what it's like to hear in stereo and have sound localization. I think sound localization will help me a lot. Also, I am drooling over the new Nucleus 5 implant. It comes with a remote control which would rock.

Thoughts?

Don't have CIs, but bilateral will save you a lot of embarassment. Once when one aid was being fixed, I was at the train station, and I thought I could hear the train arrive, so I stood up to look for it. turns out it was a train arriving from the other direction for the other platform :)

I live right next to the train tracks, and a train comes and passes by everyday.
