What is Baha?
If you have single-sided deafness, conductive or mixed hearing loss, the Baha® System can help you hear clear, rich and natural sound,1 so you can engage in conversations and enjoy many of the activities that you love.
In the Baha System, an external sound processor captures sound in the air, after which the sound is turned into vibrations and sent to the bone. The vibrations are then carried by the bone to your inner ear.

How BAHA Works
The Baha is comprised of three parts: a titanium implant, an external abutment, and a sound processor. The implant is surgically inserted into the skull bone immediately behind the ear, where it eventually fuses into place (a process known as osseointegration). The external abutment is attached to the implant, and the sound processor is connected to the abutment.
The sound processor converts sound into vibrations, which are transferred to the implant. The implant then uses the skull bones as natural conducting pathways to transfer those vibrations to the inner ear, where they are perceived as sound.
The Benefits of BAHA
The BAHA mimics the natural hearing function of the inner ear. The two components of a cochlear implant, including the external sound processor and the internal implant, work together to bypass the part of the ear that is no longer working, to deliver sound directly to your hearing nerve.
It is available in a range of colors that are meant to match various hair shades, enabling it to blend in unobtrusively. Many people will be completely unaware of the fact that you are wearing an implantable hearing devise.
The Baha isn’t simply cosmetically appealing. The result is clear and crisp sound wherever you are.
