Experience hearing through bone conduction

With Baha Start, you can experience what it's like to hear through bone conduction before deciding on surgery.

First, you'll meet with a hearing health professional and do a hearing test. If you're eligible for a bone conduction solution, Baha Start will help you experience the benefits of an implant.

Baha Start consists of one or two sound processors attached to a Baha Softband or SoundArc™.

With Baha Start, you can try hearing with the sound processor before getting an implant, either with your hearing health professional or for a trial period at home.

Secure. Practical.

The Baha Softband and SoundArc are both lightweight and easy to wear with a secure and comfortable fit. They come in different sizes so it'll fit your head and match your style.
