In the first arm of this study (Pro00063109) we developed a list of questions that will be utilized in a new quality of life questionnaire for cochlear implant users. We developed a survey to be used in the clinical setting based on these questions. We would like to gather data from a large number of implant users in order to validate the questionnaire. In the survey subjects are asked how hearing loss and having a cochlear implant affects their life. Enrolled subjects will complete the combined experimental survey paired with the current gold standard quality of life measures at two time points one month apart, greater than a year after receiving cochlear implantation.
