One of the great things about a direct-to-device connection between your Baha 5 Sound Processor and iPhone is that you can discreetly control it, without anyone noticing. You’ll just blend in with everyone else who use their iPhones, in the grocery store, waiting for the bus, waiting for someone in a restaurant…

The app will allow you to:

  • Program in locations where your sound processor will automatically change to a set program
  • Find your missing sound processor
  • Change your programs
  • Adjust your volume
  • Fiddle with your bass/treble ratio
  • Get troubleshooting help

If you do have a Baha 5 Sound Processor, then you need to pair your iPhone to your sound processor:

  • Ensure your Baha 5 Sound Processor is turned OFF by opening the battery door
  • On your iPhone, turn on Bluetooth under Devices
  • Go to Settings > General > Accessibility >Hearing Aids
  • Turn ON your Baha 5 Sound Processor by closing the battery door. It’s now discoverable for 120 seconds.
  • Tap the name of your sound processor, once it appears
  • Accept pairing request

If your Baha 5 Sound Processor is paired, has a live battery, and is turned on, it will automatically connect once you start the Baha 5 Smart App. When the app is connected for the first time, it may need additional time to read required data from your sound processor.

All done? Great!

You can now change volume, programs and check your battery status – all discreetly done via your iPhone!
