Ratings and Reviews
Good but could be so much better
I’ve been using the Baha for about 6 months. It’s good but could be so much better. For example, the technology (software) exists for blue tooth connection to two devices simultaneously. I have a bone conducting headset that does this. Would love this on the Baha for connecting work and personal mobile phones for instance. Should be a software update easily. Also the MFI connection sure does drain the batteries quickly but the sound quality is that much better. The app is also a bit, well, old fashioned. A more contemporary and intuitive front end would be great to see and should be much in development costs.

Could be so much better!
It’s worrying that there’s been no real additional functionality added since the app was launched years ago. But if it’s worth it, here’s what I’d like to see: Support for multiple devices to be selectable, so I can choose between connecting to my iPad or iPhone (the ability is there with modern Bluetooth devices); the ability to restore app settings (I create my own, turning down Bass/Treble, which allows me to wear a hat over my processor, but the app loses these on occasion); reduce the size of the icons in the settings screen, so I don’t have to scroll to select my TV Streamer; AppleWatch support, App and Complication.
