Different ways of connecting to your hearing

There are two connection options for the Baha System: Baha® Connect and Baha® Attract.

The Baha Connect System is an easy-to-use and effective1,2 hearing solution designed to improve your hearing.

It uses a small abutment behind the ear that connects the sound processor directly to the implant to maximise the sound that gets through to your inner ear. You simply snap your sound processor onto the abutment and can get on with doing the activities you enjoy.

The Baha Attract System is a comfortable and easy-to-use3 hearing solution that uses magnets to hold the sound processor over the implant. The sound processor then sends sound through to your inner ear.

You simply place your sound processor (with sound processor magnet) over the implant and then you can get on with your day while experiencing the sound around you.

Talk to your hearing health professional about the best solution for you.

The Baha BI300 implant

The Baha BI300 implant sits in the bone behind the ear. It's the pathway to sound and it forms the foundation of the Baha System. It's designed to promote a faster and stronger integration with the bone for a strong and reliable hearing platform.4-7
