Control in the palm of your hand

Controlling your Cochlear™ Baha® 5 Sound Processor has never been easier. Do you know all the things you can do with the Baha 5 Smart App?

As a CochlearTM Baha® 5 Sound Processor recipient you probably already enjoy the benefits of direct streaming from your compatible smartphone*. But did you know how much more your phone could do for you? If you find it awkward to control your device on your sound processor, you’ll love the control you get with the Baha 5 Smart App**.

Change programmes and settings

Quickly switch programmes with a tap on your phone screen. Using Program+, you can even set your own preferences for different locations, such as work or outdoors. If you are an iPhone user, the iOS ‘add location’ capability means you can link your Program+ to a specific location. The Smart App can then alert you with the option to change to your preferred setting when you arrive.

Adjust volume, treble and bass

Everyone likes to have things their own way. With the Smart App, you have control over how you listen. If you wear two Baha 5 Sound Processors, you can adjust the volume of each one separately to listen comfortably, just the way you prefer.

Stay in control of your hearing

Heading out for the day? Check your Smart App to be sure you have enough battery so your Baha 5 will last as long as you do.

Want to check your hearing time in speech or noise? Check out the ‘My Sound Processor’ section for personal hearing information, including programme usage and personalised settings. Handy for everyone, and especially useful for parents.

Stay together

If you and your Baha 5 get separated, the Smart App’s ‘Locate sound processor’ feature can help to reunite you.


If you are having difficulties with your device, reach for your phone. The Smart App’s troubleshooting section has tips to get you back on air quickly if you encounter a common problem.
