Question: I have a Baha BP110 Power Demo. Sometimes I get feedback when I touch it, is this how it’s supposed to be? Is it safe to wear in the rain? //Svend

Answer: Hi Svend,

Thank you for your question. If you touch your Baha sound processor, you might experience some whistling. This is perfectly normal, as your finger disrupts the sound around the microphone, thus creating a whistle. If you feel, however, that your sound processor whistles too much, it may be a matter of settings which your hearing care professional can adjust for you.

The BP110 Power has been developed and tested to withstand everyday wear and tear. However, is not completely water resistant so you should use an umbrella in heavy rain and not wear at all when taking a shower or swimming
