This is so unlike hearing, yet its hearing, its just so fricking bizarre.
Everything is still kinda tinny. It certainly isn't a replacement ear or anything. And there will certainly be a learning curve.
I've got 3 different "programs" which are particular ways to interpret it. So far I like one the best, (although the 3rd one is just the first one, amplified).
I go back next tuesday for more fine-tuning, and usually a volume increase after your inner ear gets used to the signals.
This is SOOOO funky....
