Baha® 5 Sound Processor

The new Cochlear™ Baha® 5 Sound Processor is not only incredibly small, it’s also unbelievably smart.

The smallest sound processor

The award-winning Baha 5 Sound Processor is the smallest sound processor in the industry, and people really love it. In user testing, 9 out of 10 users preferred the design and discreetness of the Baha 5 Sound Processor when choosing between three comparable devices.1

Although it’s 20% smaller than comparable sound processors2, the Baha 5 Sound Processor is packed full of advanced hearing technologies. Good things really do come in small packages.



The smart sound processor

With new Bluetooth® technology designed by Apple, the Baha 5 Sound Processor connects you to the people and devices you love. Unlike any other bone conduction system, Baha sound processors are Made for iPhone Hearing Devices that let you stream sound directly from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Made for iPhone Hearing Devices are designed to provide outstanding sound quality, so you can enjoy clearer phone conversations, watch your favourite movies, listen to music on the go… or have a FaceTime call with family on the other side of the world. Every sound, every song, every word – streamed directly to you without any extra device getting in the way.





Baha 5 Smart App

The Baha 5 Smart App lets you personalise your hearing experience. You can quickly and easily change program, start streaming or adjust the volume, treble and bass on your sound processor. Link custom settings to your favourite locations with a touch of a button and even get help finding your sound processor if you misplace it!

Effortlessly adapting to your world

The Baha 5 Sound Processor is designed to let you enjoy your listening experience and help you hear better, even in noisy environments. An all-new smart chip drives our latest, most advanced automatic technologies that constantly monitor your surroundings. The sound processor makes seamless adjustments to enhance and focus on the important things you need to hear.

In the office, it will focus on speech and help you hear what’s being said. Then, when you go to lunch at a busy restaurant, it will tune down the background noise so you’ll be able to easily join the conversation.
