Not really even sure what this is supposed to do? Maybe it’s me, I play piano and listen to music constantly, when I went bilateral with CIs it was really hard at first but over time, it did get better. I’m pretty content with how I hear music now except for when trying to learn a new song on piano, picking the music out is much more difficult now....I don’t read sheet music. I really miss bass in music which I could hear when I had bilateral HAs. As I got older the HAs couldn’t keep up with my natural hearing decline. The app works fine on my phone, I just don’t understand how to use it after I press the play button....then what?

Hi Grant,

It looks like you have encounter a new, intermittent bug related to streaming. We are working on a fix and hoping to update the app in the next week or two. We're really sorry about the disruption!

More of a question, my 8 year old cochlear implant kid has no problem getting it connected by Bluetooth. He seems to be really enjoying it so there’s that! I just can’t figure out how I with normal hearing can hear it. I’ve changed all the settings on my phone, turned off the Bluetooth but still no sound comes out that I can hear. Am I doing something wrong or is it the App?
