I have a cochlear Baha 5 SuperPower implant on my left side and wear a ReSound hearing aid on right side. Would there be a noticeable improvement by having a second Baha installed on the right side?

It would depend on the hearing loss in your right ear. That is something that you should discuss with your provider.

I agree 100% with Lynn. It's going to depend. Feel free to share more about your hearing in the right ear.

Depends if you are a candidate for BAHA in the other ear. Which will be determined by your ear health professional. I get the feeling you are not doing too well with your GN Resound hearing aid. Please consider getting your hearing aid re evaluated if that is the case... May be your ear with hearing aid has deteriorated or the aid is not performing adequately . A remote Mic or FM is also something to look into.
