Young British actor Billy Coughlin who we wrote about in April, is featured in an article in Dailymail about his experience with the Baha Attract System:

A revolutionary magnetic implant has restored the hearing of a young actor who went deaf in one ear at the age of 17 – and gives new hope to the thousands of Britons who cannot benefit from traditional hearing aids.

Billy Coughlin, 22, from Birmingham, underwent the groundbreaking procedure in March and says:
