Tip of the Week: How to wear your Baha sound processor

Every Wednesday, Mark Flynn, PhD, Cochlear’s Audiologist and Director of Research and Applications, gives his best Baha tips!

How to wear your Baha sound processor correctly

The microphones of the Baha sound processor are specially calibrated to focus on capturing speech from the front and reducing noise from behind. Therefore, you should always endeavour to have the sound processor worn the correct way up and not at an angle. So if you turn the sound processor upside down, for example, it will focus on what comes from behind you.

If you for some reason really feel you want to wear your sound processor upside down, the hearing care professional can do a quick fix by switching around the microphones in the computer software. It is not the way that we recommend, but following discussion with the professional and taking into account other aspects such as how it will be positioned on the head, is something that could be considered on a case by case basis.
