Whether you’re at work or in a noisy restaurant, you won’t have to guess which setting is best; your sound processor will do it for you.

Data Logging

This sound processor is so smart, it can tell your audiologist how to make it work even better.

Child using a Baha 5 Sound Processor

You might not remember every place you go, but your sound processor will. It is constantly creating a comprehensive record of how the processor is being used, so your audiologist can study the sound levels and patterns to make the fine tuning process much more accurate. This process is called data logging.

Data logging is especially important for parents of children using a Baha 5 Sound Processor. You'll get the reassurance that comes from knowing the system is being used correctly. No guessing. No trial and error. Just the wonderful hearing you want for your child. If your child is under the age of 5, learn more about the Baha Softband.
