Baha user Dennis Klatte 65, lost his hearing at the age of 60 due to an acoustic neuroma. The removal of the tumour left him completely deaf on the right side.
“I rather foolishly asked, ‘Is there a chance that the nerve will grow back?’ and after they were done laughing, they said no,” Dennis recalls with a wry smile. “So the option was the Baha solution. When the ENT doctor put the little Baha sound processor on a headband and held it against my head – it was amazing, I could hear what he was saying even when he had his back to me. My wife just looked at my face and immediately understood that I could hear.”
The new Baha 5 Power Sound Processor is ideal for people like Dennis who need more power, with hearing loss up to 55 dB SNHL. Compared to the previous generation (the Baha BP110 Power), it offers longer battery life, wireless capabilities including Made for iPhone support, and the design is totally new.
When trying it on for the first time, Dennis was favourably impressed; “It looks sleek. It looks nice. I like that the battery door is all self-contained.”
The Baha 5 Power comes in five colours, the same as the Baha 5 Sound Processor, so you can choose a colour to match your hair. Dennis opted for the silver colour to blend in with his hair.
