The next step on your hearing journey
The Baha® Softband and SoundArc™ help give children the hearing performance and amplification they need to improve language development.1
We designed both solutions to work with one or two Baha 5 sound processors, which attach easily and simply to the Softband and SoundArc.2
Colour options to match your personal style
The Baha SoundArc and Softband are lightweight and adaptable with different colour options to help you to blend in or stand out. They have a modern look with a secure and comfortable fit.2
Baha Softband: Designed for young children (babies and toddlers)
"We wanted to make sure that when she hit kindergarten, she would be in the same place as her hearing peers."*1
- Mother of Lucy, Cochlear™ Baha® recipient
Designed with babies and toddlers in mind
Your child starts learning to communicate well before they start saying "mama" or "dada." It's important to give your baby access to sound early.3 The Baha Softband helps to do just that.
An adjustable strap helps you get a snug fit on your active baby or toddler, while a safety release opens the Softband if it catches on an object.
Comfortable and soft2
The Softband features Baha SoftWear™ pads, designed to reduce pressure on the skin whilst also allowing sound transmission.4
Baha SoundArc: Lightweight and adaptable
The Baha SoundArc is a lightweight and adaptable hearing device suitable for adults and children.
Designed with a modern look
Like a pair of sunglasses, the SoundArc is easy to put on and take off. It can fit one or two Baha sound processors.
No two children are alike. That’s why SoundArc is designed to be fit heads of different shapes and sizes, comfortably and securely.
Your child can match their hair, style or clothes with coloured tips to stand out and express themselves.
Softband and SoundArc compatibility
The Baha Softband and SoundArc are compatible with all Baha 5 sound processors.
