1. A Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA), preferably the new BP-100 model from Cochlear / Ponto Pro from Oticon or a Vibrant Soundbridge from Med-El are new options, depending upon your exact audiometric findings.
2. You can take a trial of both these technologies.
3. You will require an electronic stethoscope which is coupled with the above devices via a telecoil or a FM transmitter.
