We are proud to announce the commercial availability of the Cochlear™ Baha® 5 Power and Baha 5 SuperPower Sound Processors in the United States. This now completes the Baha 5 Sound Processor portfolio, the industry’s widest and most powerful portfolio of bone conduction solutions.1
The Baha 5 Power and Baha 5 SuperPower Sound Processors are now available for your patients with greater levels of mixed hearing loss, up to 55 dB SNHL for Power and 65 dB SNHL for SuperPower.
With the addition of the Power and SuperPower, the Baha 5 System provides the widest range of sound processors, including the industry’s smallest, smartest and most powerful head-worn bone conduction solutions for those who are deaf in one ear, or have conductive or mixed hearing loss. The entire Baha 5 System provides patients with the ability to hear better across noisy environments and connect wirelessly to a variety of electronic devices.
The newest sound processor, the Baha 5 Power, is designed for your patients who need more power, longer battery life and on-device control. The Baha 5 Power Sound Processor provides patients more control over their hearing by featuring a volume rocker for easy volume control and an LED indicator light on the device to indicate if the device is working properly. In addition, the device has a long battery life, providing up to 160 hours depending on streaming and daily usage.
All sound processors in the Baha 5 portfolio share the same unique technology building blocks to deliver a smart and seamless hearing experience to all patients. Each device in the portfolio also provides the patient a choice between two sound processor connection options: an abutment system (Baha Connect System) and a magnetic system (Baha Attract System).
The Baha 5 portfolio provides the industry’s only smart processors with direct-to-device wireless streaming and control with the Made for iPhone® technology, Bluetooth® Smart technology, the Smart App, and access to Cochlear™ True Wireless™ technology. The Baha 5 portfolio of sound processors are the industry’s only Made for iPhone hearing devices.
The Baha 5 Smart App is the first Smart App for bone conduction devices. The Smart App allows for advanced control of all Baha 5 sound processors and wireless accessories, further personalization and support directly from an iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch. Through the Smart App, a user can quickly and easily change programs, adjust volume, modify treble and bass, save custom settings for favorite locations, and receive help finding a sound processor if misplaced.
All Baha 5 sound processors are designed to help patients experience clearer, crisper sound, and hear what people are saying even in noisy environments. The key to the sound experience is the revolutionary SmartSound® iQ technology, which automatically selects the appropriate program based on where one is located and optimizes the sound to enhance hearing in that listening environment. Whether at work or in a noisy restaurant, a patient won’t have to guess which setting is best; the sound processor will decide.
The Baha 5 Power and Baha 5 SuperPower Sound Processors are now available commercially for patients in the U.S. The Baha 5 has been commercially available in the U.S. since April 2015.
