The Cochlear Baha® System

The Baha® System uses the body’s natural ability to deliver sound through bone conduction. It can help you maximize your hearing experience so you can communicate more easily. If you have conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness (SSD), the Baha System may be the right hearing solution for you.

Small has never sounded this powerful

For you to experience clear, rich and natural sound in noisy environments, one thing is very important: a powerful sound processor. When we designed the new Baha® 6 Max Sound Processor, we wanted to ensure that although it is small in size, it is packed with power, providing those with hearing loss up to 55 dB SNHL* a dynamic hearing solution.

How the Cochlear Baha® System works

There are two main components of the Baha System - an external sound processor and an internal implant that work together to bypass the damaged part of the outer or middle ear and send sound directly to the inner ear.
