Question: I had the BP100 and after two years it stopped working. I wasn’t that happy with it because I thought I would be able to hear better. What has the feedback been on the new Baha 5 Sound Processor? I am trying to justify the cost. Also does the magnet work good as I also have a lot of irritation around my abutment. Thank you. // Kristi
Answer: Dear Kristi,
Sorry to hear that the BP100 Sound Processor has not lived up to your expectations.
Since the launch, the Baha 5 Sound Processor has proven very successful indeed. The small size, sound quality and wireless audio streaming directly to and from a range of accessories and from your iPhone, have all been very appreciated by people upgrading from the BP100. There are numerous testimonials available from patients, such as this one, on the benefits they have perceived with this new sound processor, and we would absolutely recommend that you evaluate how it works for you.
Regarding the Baha Attract System, results have been good and patients that use it are very satisfied, especially with the skin cosmetics outcomes, however, you will need to let your hearing care professional evaluate if your hearing loss is suitable for this system.
