“The biggest thing for me I’ve noticed is just the social settings. His willingness to engage with other kids and wanting to do that because now he can hear what they are saying and follow the conversation better”

Baha® Start gives Cash his “superpower”

Cash was born with microtia, leaving him with hearing loss that affected his ability to recognize sound. When he received his Baha Softband he was finally able to hear sounds he’s never heard before. 

Little by little he learned how to use the technology andand is now enjoying engaging with his siblings and friends in more conversations. He’s a pro at working the Baha Start and is experiencing life and his hearing to the fullest.
