The first step to better hearing

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.

The Baha SoundArc and Softband are lightweight and easy to wear. They have a modern look that kids love, with a secure and comfortable fit.
