Made for iPhone technology

Enjoy your favorite movies, TV shows, apps, music, GPS directions — even a FaceTime® call — with audio streamed to your sound processor.*

With Made for iPhone technology, you can check battery life, change volume and programs and start streaming simply by using the accessibility menu on your iPhone. This technology can be very convenient, especially if you have a loved one who doesn't manage their own device, such as a child.

"The Made for iPhone technology makes life so much easier. I don't have to hold the phone up to my ear — it streams sound directly into my processor so I hear it loud and clear, right into my ear."

- Debra, Baha System recipient

Streaming to an Android™ device

The Baha® 6 Max is the first bone conduction sound processor where you can stream directly to your sound processor from your compatible Android™ device.*

If your smartphone is not compatible for direct streaming, you can use one of our wireless devices to stream phone calls, music and more to your sound processor.

Manage and control your hearing using the Baha Smart App

The Baha Smart App provides you with a convenient and easy way to manage and personalize your hearing experience.

From your compatible Apple or Android device, you can:

  • Change program
  • Stream to your Cochlear™ True Wireless™ devices
  • Adjust the volume and your sound settings
  • Save custom settings for your favorite locations with Apple devices
  • Locate a misplaced sound processor

To experience all the features of the Baha Smart App, download for free via Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
