Your direct connection to hearing

The Baha Connect System is easy to use and requires little daily care; you simply connect the Baha 5 Sound Processor onto a small abutment behind the ear.

Because the sound processor connects directly to the abutment, you can enjoy the best hearing performance from the Baha system.

"Getting the Baha System has changed my life. It has given me back my family and friends—the ability to go out and socialise."

- Shelly S, Cochlear™ Baha® recipient, USA

The latest technology gives you the best results

The Baha Connect System's abutment features unique DermaLock™ surface technology.

This technology integrates with your body to stabilise the area around the abutment. This is designed for reduced surgery and healing times and for better cosmetic outcomes.1,2

Compatible with MRI

You can get an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) with the Baha Connect System.

Approved for a high level of MRI compatibility — up to 3.0 Tesla — all you need to do is remove the Baha 5 Sound Processor prior to your MRI. The abutment and implant can remain in place.
