Made for iPhone technology

Enjoy your favourite movies, TV shows, apps, music, GPS directions — even a FaceTime call — with audio streamed to your sound processor. 

"The Made for iPhone technology makes life so much easier. I don't have to hold the phone up to my ear — it streams sound directly into my processor so I hear it loud and clear, right into my ear."

- Debra, Baha System recipient

Streaming to an Android™ device

The Baha 6 Max is the first bone conduction sound processor where you can stream directly to your sound processor from your compatible compatible Android™ device.

If you have a Baha 5 sound processor you can use one of our wireless devices to stream phone calls, music and more to your sound processor from a compatible Android™ device.
