  • 3. Personalise your listening experience

    With the Baha 5 Smart App, you can take control of your hearing and customise your programs depending on listening situations.

    The Baha 5 Smart App lets you:

    • Quickly and easily change programs
    • Manage streaming
    • Monitor battery status
    • Adjust the volume, treble and bass to customise your sound processor settings and link them to your favourite locations
    • Create custom programs with a touch of a button
    • Find your sound processor if you misplace it

  • 4. Enjoy seamless adjustment and advanced feedback management

    • Seamless adjustment: Our SmartSound® iQ technology constantly monitors the sounds that surround you and makes seamless adjustments that help you focus in on the important things you need to hear. In the office it may enhance speech to help you hear what's being said. Then when you go to lunch at a busy restaurant, it may reduce the background noise so you can confidently join the conversation.
    • Advanced feedback management: The engine of all bone conduction sound processors is its transducer (the part that turns sounds into vibrations). The revolutionary new BCDrive™ transducer produces 30% less distortion1 than the traditional design; and less distortion equals a crisper signal. Coupled with advanced feedback management, you can experience clearer sound with less risk for annoying squeaks and squeals.

  • 5. Stream audio, phone calls, music directly to your processor

    With Bluetooth® technology designed by Apple, Baha 5 sound processors connect you to the people and devices you love. Baha 5 sound processors are Made for iPhone hearing devices that let you stream sound directly from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This means that you can:

    • Enjoy clearer phone conversations
    • Watch your favourite movies
    • Listen to music on the go
    • Use your device as a remote mic
    • Talk with friends and family via FaceTime

    Every sound, every song, every word - streamed directly to you without the constraints of anything around your neck or additional wires.
