The Baha (bone-anchored hearing aid) Softband appears to be an effective mean of hearing rehabilitation for children with a congenital bilateral aural atresia who are too young for the amplification of a Baha on an implant. The aided hearing threshold with a Baha Softband is almost equal to that achieved with a conventional bone conductor. The speech development of the children studied with a Baha Softband is on a par with peers with good hearing.
