Cochlear announces the release of the Baha® SoundArc

News from Cochlear

The latest non-implantable bone conduction innovation from Cochlear is here! The Baha SoundArc is a new hearing solution for people who live with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss or single-sided sensorineural deafness (SSD). It is the world’s first non-surgical, behind-the-head bone conduction hearing device, specially designed for children who are not ready for a bone conduction implant and adults who want to trial bone conduction in everyday situations.

“All previous non-surgical devices have used the head or ears to aid in retention. With the Baha SoundArc we needed to find a way to deliver excellent sound quality, power performance and fit all different head shapes and sizes – without compromising on comfort”, says Mats Dotevall, Director of Design & Development at Cochlear Bone Anchored Solutions AB (CBAS).

With the introduction of the Baha SoundArc, Cochlear adds another unique device to its broad portfolio of bone conduction hearing options. The aesthetically appealing and easy-to-wear Baha SoundArc works together with all of Cochlear’s Baha 5 sound processors.

The Baha SoundArc is expected to become a popular choice for both adults and children. User satisfaction was tested during a first experience program in a number of selected clinics in the UK from April to June 2017. The reported results were excellent, with an overall satisfaction rating of more than 85% in take-home trials.

“For us it’s not about a one-size fits all approach, it’s about innovating and making sure our customers have options that fit both their lifestyle and their stage in life”, says Rom Mendel, President of Acoustics at CBAS.

The availability of the Baha SoundArc will differ from country to country. Please check the availability in your country with your local Cochlear office.
