Announcing MED-EL’s RONDO Swap Program!

No need to wait for future technology. As of August 1, 2020, patients who choose a MED-EL cochlear implant with a RONDO 2 Audio Processor can exchange the RONDO 2 for the next-generation RONDO once it’s available.


Here’s how RONDO Swap works:

• Choose a MED-EL SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant system with a RONDO 2 Audio Processor. If your Patient Kit includes two processors, keep one RONDO 2 sealed for the swap.

• When you receive your Patient Kit, you will be instructed to complete a simple, online pre-registration for RONDO Swap.

• Once the next-generation RONDO Audio Processor is available (expected later this year), MED-EL will contact you to complete the swap.

Additional Details

RONDO Swap is offered for patients implanted in the U.S. only with a surgery date of August 1, 2020 through product availability.

  • If you receive only one audio processor in your Patient Kit, choose RONDO 2 and use it until the swap.
  • A FineTuner will also be returned to MED-EL as part of the swap. Instructions for the FineTuner return will vary by Patient Kit.
  • The warranty start date for the next-generation RONDO Audio Processor coincides with the start date of the original CI system patient kit.
  • Only one audio processor may be exchanged per ear/CI system.
  • SONNET 2 is not eligible for the RONDO Swap promotion.
