Creators of the Baha® SoundArc a new, non-surgical bone conduction wearing option for children, describe the modern features and flexibility of the product. The cool, new lightweight SoundArc is used in conjunction with the Baha Sound Processors and is ideal for children who are not yet ready for a bone conduction implant system.
The Cochlear™ Baha® 5 Sound Processors are the first sound processors with direct to device control and accessibility, Apple® and Android™ compatibility. With additional functionality, recipients can stream sound directly from an iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® —without the need for a secondary device or bulky neck-worn hardware. The processors also connect to a range of easy-to-use wireless accessories designed to improve hearing experiences.
The direct-to-device difference
Unlike any other bone conduction systems, Baha 5 Sound Processors stream sound directly from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch without any extra device getting in the way. If your patients use an Android device or any other smartphone, you can stream phone calls, music and more directly to your Baha 5 Sound Processors by using the True Wireless™ Phone Clip.
Baha 5 Sound Processors are the first sound processors with direct to device control making it easy for your patients to connect with the people and devices they love.
Baha 5 Smart App
With the Baha 5 Smart App, your patients can personalize their listening experience directly from their iPhone or Android smartphone. They can quickly and easily: change programs, adjust volume save custom settings for certain locations and get help finding their sound processor if they misplace it and more. Patients who do not have a smartphone can also control the sound processor through a Cochlear Baha Remote Control2 or other wireless accessories.
True Wireless™ freedom
Cochlear True Wireless technology lets patients enjoy high-quality audio streamed through a secure 2.4 GHz connection directly to the sound processor without the need for any extra devices—no cables, cords or necklaces.

The benefits of binaural hearing are well known, and in air conduction hearing amplification patients with bilateral hearing loss have been fitted with bilateral hearing amplification as the standard of care for decades.1 However, the benefits of fitting bilateral conductive or mixed hearing loss with bilateral bone conduction solutions have been debated. The guidance statements and clinical recommendations presented in this paper provide a viewpoint from experts on when bilateral fitting should be performed and considerations for a successful outcome.
For results found during this consensus meeting, please see the entire Clinical guidance on bilateral fitting of bone conduction solutions in children and adults white paper.
