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.

    • Hi Cynthia,

      There are several factors that determine how successful a Baha System will be in restoring directional hearing. These include the severity of your hearing loss, your type of hearing loss (if it comes from your outer, middle or inner ear) and if your hearing loss is asymmetric (more severe in one ears). The best way to find out is to visit your hearing care professional as they can let you test a sound processor on a Baha Softband. Then you’ll be able to evaluate the outcome before getting the actual system.
