Q: I am told by a fellow implantee that he changes the Microphone Protection cover on his Nucleus/Freedom processor every month, is this necessary and why?

A: The first time I realised how important it is to keep the microphone protectors clean, happened when a recipient reported the following observation: "I think I'm going mad! When I walk towards my television the sound becomes softer, and when I walk away the sound becomes louder!". Well, a bit of detective work showed the microphone protector was the culprit.
