Your magnetic connection to hearing

By using internal and external magnets that attract one another, the Baha Attract System is comfortable, easy to use and requires no daily skin care.

The sound processor simply snaps onto a magnet to hold it in place.

"It's just amazing. I can’t believe the difference. You don't realise what you lost until somebody shows you what you got back."

- Jon, Cochlear™ Baha® recipient

Hearing matched to your needs and comfort

Baha Attract System magnets are available in different strengths to suit your needs. They allow for different levels of skin and hair thickness, which can affect magnet effectiveness.

Your surgeon will recommend the most appropriate magnet for you.

To keep you hearing all day, the Baha Attract System comes with specially designed Baha SoftWear™ pads. These pads adjust to the shape of your head and distribute pressure evenly, providing more comfort and improving hearing performance.

"The Baha Attract is helping Isabella, especially since she is trying to read. With the [Baha] Attract, she can hear a lot more, especially when we are reading a story. She can hear me regardless of where I'm at."

- Melissa, mother of Isabella W, Cochlear™ Baha® recipient

Designed with MRI compatibility in mind*

You can get an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) up to 1.5 Tesla (T) with the Baha Attract System.

If you or your child needs an MRI scan higher than 1.5T, a surgical procedure to remove the magnet may be required.
