I’m a BAHA user from Denmark who has been using this device since I was about 14-15 years old. I’m using it because I was born with microtia. Back then, the doctor had asked if I was interested in getting a BAHA on both sides, but I opted to go only for one side cause the surgery was quite painful to me.
However, I would like to hear from any users that have experience wearing a BAHA on both sides. Does it make daily-life communication easier? Do you have a better chance at sensing the direction of the source? Are you able to filter background noise, only focusing on the person you’re talking to? I’m hoping for a yes for the first two questions, while the latter would be a miracle!
I would be grateful if you also posted your age; I personally believe that as time goes, it gets more and more impossible to learn the direction of the source, but I haven’t researched much about it either. I’m 27 myself.
Thanks in advance!
