My New Baha – Bone Anchored Hearing Aid
I am nearly deaf in my right ear, and since my ear canal is clogged, a traditional hearing aid won’t help. If it wasn’t for my clogged hearing canal, I would have nearly normal hearing in my right ear. In 2017, I had surgery to drill in a metal abutment into my skull near my right ear. Three months after my surgery, I received a Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (Baha) that snaps into the abutment.With the device, I am now able to hear normally through my skull. The hearing aid comes with accessories that work over Bluetooth. They enable me to use my hearing aid with a mobile phone, hear streaming audio over Bluetooth, and hear sounds via a remote microphone. See my YouTube video describing my experience.
