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 short and long form 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 long and short questionnaire forms. Both forms ask subjects how hearing loss and having a cochlear implant affects their life. Enrolled subjects will complete either the short or long form as well as the current gold standard quality of life measures twice one month apart greater than a year after receiving cochlear implantation.
