@AbramBaileyAuD I’ve been told by Cochlear here in Aus that the CI L24 array has been withdrawn from the market, both here and in the US. This is just the Cochlear brand. I wasn’t given any reason just told it’s no longer available and not an option anymore here in Aus. Cochlear aren’t offering a Hybrid Implant anymore. I have heard that sevel people with the short L24 have had to have them removed this could be part of the reason.
@MDB this is the reason my aud gave me for recommending Bolero.
I understand your confusion and frustration. It may seem that the Naida “fits” your hearing better on paper, but this is not true in practice. The reason I didn’t pick the Naida was because you don’t require the gain that is in the fitting range ie. it is not a volume issue for you but a clarity problem, in fact your current Boleros can be turned up much louder than they are currently set, but when we try this it has not been helpful in the past. The Naida is a much larger device and you can only use a standard mould with it which would also cause worse occlusion. You would not experience any more clarity than you have now with the Boleros. If we were not getting enough power with your current Boleros, of course I would have recommended trying the Naida, but that was never the case.
