Here is the warranty info, found online by googling: http://www.trademarkia.com/rondo-85169910.html

Now, what that means… we’ll have to wait and see!

And, as I showed Elliot, he laughed and said, “the best part would be if they made it waterproof.” I’m thinking it would need some place for a retention clip in order to prevent loss in younger kids… but it’s hard to see in the pic if there is or is not something like that.

Looks to me like it’s just a different version of the middle ear implant processor— how do you know it’s for CI’s?

Maybe it’s a bone conduction aid like cochlears BAHA

Yes, this is new sound processor Med`El Rondo. This photo was shooted in audiology congress in Russia, Souzdal, 2011 yr.

I want to see how you can talk on a cellphone with it.

I just tried this one on my CI and it looks great!!!! it stays put on my head, no matter how much shaking I do. and about cellphone talking, yeah, I guess i will have to position it farther, but with my smartphone (ie iphone in my case, samsung) the distance seems fair normal still. If this was a problem I would suggest medel to create a plastic horn you can clip to the Rondo and direct the hearing to an area closer to the upper side of the ear.
Also, I expect to see a waterproof covering for this one! It´s so beautiful to hear while bathing and in the pool…!

I wanna know please how much is the Rondo? Do we require operation first? please? its for my daughter , shes already 14 yrs old..

Alicia: It’s a single-unit processor for cochlear implants and has nothing to do with BAHA (for bone conductive not sensori-neural loss).

Grace: It attaches to the cochlear implant that has been surgically attached to one’s head.

What makes it different (I don’t have one, I’m studying them for a future implant in the U.S.) is it does not have wires attached to what I call a BTE-like unit.

I don’t know how they are. It will likely end up being my implant of choice in a few months.

Is rondo current being implanted in the USA. Doer rondo have the N24 nuculas upgrade in it?
Thanks so much,
