Baha hearing system. Man wearing a bone anchored hearing system (Baha). The Baha system is an implantable, bone anchored hearing system. It offers a solution to those who cannot benefit from air conduction hearing aids. It works by amplifying sound vibrations and transmitting them to a small titanium implant. The vibrating implant sets up vibrations within the skull and inner ear that finally stimulate the nerve fibres of the inner ear, allowing hearing. The system allows sound to be conducted through the bone rather than via the middle ear, a process known as direct bone conduction.
