Bone anchored hearing aid. Man wearing a bone anchored hearing aid (BAHA) system. The BAHA system is the only implantable hearing system available where sound is conducted through the bone rather than via the middle ear, a process known as direct bone conduction. It offers a solution to those who cannot benefit from air conduction hearing aids, such as those with deformed or absent ear canals.
