In the news: Baha 5 helps Joshua hear again

After six years, a Morgan Hill [Palo Alto, California] boy has his hearing back. Thanks to some new technology and an incredible team of doctors at Stanford. Now, he hopes to inspire others who may be going through something similar.

“If you have a hearing aid, don’t think that people will bully you and be mean to you cause really you’re really special and it’s really something that’s good about you,” said Joshua.

In the news: The difference for Addison man is audible

Jon H from the Daily News

A great story from Addison, Wisconsin (USA):

Jon Haldemann’s telephone rang and rang and rang. Frightened and nervous — almost reluctant — he picked it up. It was a struggle for more than 25 years.
“Either when I was talking on the phone, I couldn’t get the phone in the right spot to hear people because the microphone was above the ear I had to have the phone in a weird position,” he said. “I couldn’t just stick it onto my ear. “A lot of times if I got in the right spot, it would cause a squeal. … I absolutely dreaded talking on the phone.”

Innovative technology now has him comfortable on the phone and in life, called the Baha 5 SuperPower Sound Processor. It is the first super-power bone conduction solution with smart, direct-to-device wireless technology for patients.
