    Hello Flor1,

    I'm a little confused by your question. Do you know if your audiologist/ENT recommended you get a Cochlear Implant or a Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA)?

    The Oticon Ponto is a BAHA. Otticon has a competitor named Cochlear that also makes a BAHA.

    Here is an Oticon Ponto: http://www.conduction-osseuse.info/img/ponto_pro.png
    - Notice how it is just a processor that is attached behind the ear.

    Here is a Cochlear Implant: https://oticonmedical.files.wordpres...ant-image.jpeg
    - Notice how there is also a piece that goes around the ear, the part attached behind the ear and a wire connecting the two.

    ----------------------------------

    I have two Oticon Ponto Plus BAHAs. I'll be honest, I don't know a whole lot about Cochlear Implants as that technology is different than BAHA technology. If you are looking into getting BAHAs, I'm happy to share any information I can. The good and the bad.

    Thank you!
