I just made another discovery with the hybrid CI.  Music has an added depth to it that is surprisingly pleasant.  I say “surprisingly” because the new sounds have not all adapted yet and my brain still interprets many of them as very mechanical or harsh – but less so than in the beginning I believe.

However, when I’m listening to music, there’s a pleasant addition of tones, an added layer, that I never heard before.  The music comforting and this experience is so awesome!
