    $10k total but again no returns, exchange or refund even portion of it. I did talk to one maxum patient in TX, this person is very happy with it and he had tried all kinds of HAs.
    Thanks.

    The Maxum is approximately $10,000 per ear, including surgery. I believe I was quoted $12,000.

    The procedure is pretty simple. They go in through the ear canal and attach a small magnet to the ossicular chain. Takes about a half an hour.

    The problem is that only a few hundred people have received the Maxum, so there is very little documentation or clinical results on the device. Also, there is no guarantee that Ototronix will continue to develop new receivers / processors if they aren't making money on the technology.

    Cyborg, you say you have one Nucleus 5 implanted. How do you feel about it regarding perception of speech and your ability to understand on the telephone with it. I have just undergone an implant in my left ear and will not have it programmed for probably another 3 weeks or so. Just curious about your experiences.

    Hey Cyborg, I now have an implant in my left ear, activated March 14th. It's been good and getting close to being great. I now hear one on one conversations great and with a Clearsound CLA7v2 Adapter to my phone I hear conversations better than I have in 15 years or more. Good Luck on yours.

    Not sure if the right place to post.. I have profound high frequency loss, with my drop beginning at about 1k. Going for evaluation on Friday for clinical trials for med el EAS hybrid, and hoping to find others that have looked into CI hybrids. My residual hearing may make me not a candidate (72% on a suspect testing methodology).

    anyone else researching hybrids?

    Cramer, I'm interested in how your evaluation came out. I may be getting the Cochlear America hybrid as soon as this fall in my other ear. I'm not familiar with the Mde El's though.

    Maybe this person has moderate hearing loss and not profound loss like yours.
