Can the Baha 5 Sound Processor stream directly to Android phones?

Question: Do you know when or if the Baha 5 Sound Processor will be able to stream directly to Android phones like it does for the iPhone? I have the phone clip which streams to my Samsung Galaxy S5, but I would like the Baha 5 Sound Processor to stream directly to my Android phone, so I do not have the hassle of remembering to possess and turn on the phone clip.

Thank you. // James

Answer: Dear James, thank you for your question.

Currently, only Apple offers the technology to stream audio directly to a Baha sound processor. To stream sound and take phone calls from an Android phone you need the Cochlear Wireless Phone Clip.

The Baha 5 Sound Processor can also be controlled from an Android phone using the Cochlear Baha Control App. If you don’t already have the app installed, download it here:

  1. you should change the images and the description of the app on google play.

    Both the images and the description seems that streaming can also be used with smartphone Android. I tried with a samsung S7 and I confirm that it can’t use streaming mode.

      As you point out, it is not possible to stream from your Android phone directly to your sound processor.
      The Baha 5 Smart App does allow you to activate streaming from Cochlear™ Wireless Accessories.
      We have updated our Google Play store description to better communicate this.

      Thank you for your input.
