The first step to better hearing

The Baha Softband and SoundArc are designed to provide children under the age of 5* with the hearing performance and amplification they need to maximize their language development.1

Both solutions are designed to provide the same benefits and hearing performance and will work with one or two Baha 5 Sound Processors. They use the same technology as our implantable solution, attaching easily and simply to the sound processor(s).
