The role of the Baha implant

Your Baha implant sits in the bone behind your ear. It’s your pathway to sound and it forms the foundation of our Baha System.

"Getting the Baha System was a life-changing experience. Sounds weren't just louder, they were clearer. It was incredible."

John K, Cochlear™ Baha® recipient, USA

Designed to help you hear

The latest Baha implant, the BI300, is made of titanium and features TiOblast surface technology. Unlike conventional titanium, this unique surface promotes stability in the bone by creating a tight integration with the bone.

We designed this implant to promote faster and stronger integration with the bone.

Proven reliability

The BI300 delivers a 99% reliability rate, which means that the implant will remain stable for years to come. 1-4

Together, the design, dimensions and characteristics of the BI300 implant have proven reliability through long-term clinical use.
