Hi, thanks for this post and all the feedback!
I went to the Hough Ear Institute last week for a BAHA or aid consultation. Hands down they recommend BAHA for me (SSD). I tried it out and thought it was amazing, but I am concerned about the cost, location of the post and skin irritation, as I have extremely sensitive skin. The Oto Doc recommended placing the post above my hear due to bone conductivity, and not getting it too close to the translab operating area.
I cannot imagine the hearing aid working as well, but would consider it as an option.
The audiologist Dr. did mention to me that Octavio (?) the hearing aid company would be coming out with a device that could rival the BAHA, and they might be a better (less expense/stable company/etc) company as they would change the monopoly on bone anchored hearing devices....
