I’ve had a BAHA since 2014. However, I just upgraded to the new “6” and it is SO much better!! The sound is definitely clearer. Not as much static as my previous 5 Power unit which I had been using for the last 5 years.
I go tomorrow to my audiologist for fitting and adjustments. Not sure if I will get more than one program on it or not.
I agree that sometimes I close off my good ear to just listen through the BAHA!
. I never used to do that. But at times it helps to hear exactly what you are wanting to listen to without surrounding noise Interference ,, if that makes sense.
My TV streamer was my free gift from Cochlear! And I too LOVE IT!! Yesterday I muted the tv and used my streamer to watch tv without disturbing my husband who was at the table doing computer work!!
I already have the remote control unit. I use it to control the tv streamer. I’ve had it awhile but never used it previously. i also have the mini mic and phone clip,,,, ( don’t need the phone clip anymore). I have the app for Cochlear on my phone but will have audiologist help me program it tomorrow.
Overall,, I’m much happier with the BAHA since I’ve received this upgrade. Definitely worth pursuing if anyone has an older unit!
I hope you enjoy yours as well.
It’s definitely a big help if you are SSD. Still doesn’t help with locating direction that the sound is coming from,, but nothing can help with that,,,
Good luck with adjusting to it. Just wear it all the time,, and your brain will adjust,,
