Your magnetic connection to hearing

By using internal and external magnets that attract one another, the Baha Attract System is comfortable, easy to use and requires no daily skin care.

The sound processor simply connects onto a magnet to hold it in place.

"It's just amazing. I can’t believe the difference. You don't realise what you lost until somebody shows you what you got back."

- Jon, Cochlear™ Baha® System recipient, United Kingdom

Hearing matched to your needs and comfort

Baha Attract System magnets are available in different strengths to suit your needs. They allow for different levels of skin and hair thickness, which can affect magnet effectiveness.

Your surgeon or hearing professional will recommend the most appropriate magnet for you.

For added comfort and performance we provide the Baha SoftWear™ pads. These pads adjust to the shape of your head and distribute pressure evenly across the surface.

"The Baha Attract [System] is helping Isabella, especially since she is trying to read. She can hear a lot more, especially when we are reading a story. She can hear me regardless of where I'm at."

- Melissa, mother of Isabella W, Cochlear™ Baha® System recipient, USA

Designed with MRI compatibility in mind*

You can get an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) up to 1.5 Tesla (T) with the Baha Attract System.

If you or your child needs an MRI scan higher than 1.5T, a minor surgical procedure to remove the magnet may be required.
