    Question; I believe you said that you have a Resound HA.
    Do you use the phone clip for cell phones.
    Does the sound stream equally to the HA & CI?
    Is streaming better than holding the phone to the CI?

    With HA's I HAVE to "stream", cannot really understand with only cell phone to HA.
    Thanks

    Although one shouldn't be discouraged from having a CI out of concern for this dilemma. IMHO.

    P.S. Made a "coffee" that Cochlear put on at a local coffee shop the other day.
    Met the local rep. and got to hold the Nucleus 6 and Kanso. She told me the "kits" came with 2 processors, so I could get one of each.
    She also brought a "volunteer" and he was a bi-lateral CI wearer.
    Was really impressed with their genuine desire to help.

    Actually I have an Oticon. Although I do know of some CI users that have the Resound HA in the other ear. There might be some right here in the forum. Good luck!

    I've been advised that my profound hearing loss is beyond what a hearing aid can serve, and that I'd be an excellent candidate for CI. My left ear is still within range of a hearing aid. I have a question: (1) when a CI processor is removed for the night, is that ear totally deaf or is there some residual hearing left.

    Many CI users had very little residual hearing in the implanted hearing to begin with. To the point that they pretty much only heard sounds when it was amplified with an hearing aid. I think more focus should be on what you can gain with the CI than losing what little residual hearing you may have. I don't even know if I still have any residual hearing left in my implanted ear. I just know that I surely hear better with the CI in that ear than I ever did with the HA. There's the CI hybrid that I think is supposed to preserve the residual hearing. But I do not know if it's for those within your hearing loss range? Besides I think generally speaking, they do a better job preserving the residual hearing in cochlear implantations these days? Check with your doctor.
