Cochlear Implants: How well do they work at an older age?

Great that you are going to be evaluated for a CI. I use both a hearing aid and have a CI. My current CI processor is an N6 by Cochlear Corp. They work well together. That is referred to as being 'bimodal' as we are using 2 different technologies to hear. Both the CI processor and the hearing aid can stream to your cell phone, to TV, etc. None of the processors use ear molds like hearing aids do, so dermatitis should not be a problem. The Kanso 2 is an excellent processor, but it lacks a built in telecoil. I use telecoils a lot, so would not be happy with the new Kanso. Do you use the telecoils in your hearing aids?

I don't believe the trial Phonak Paradise Audio has the telecoil and my 5 year old ones couldn't hook up to anything. Not even sure what the telecoils would do for me.
