I understand, Paul. When I was weighing options, I found several YouTube videos/vlogs that were created by Baha wearers and their insight was incredibly helpful. When my audiologist suggested the Osia, I wasn't able to find any user/wearer perspectives online (I'm assuming it's because the device was still so new). The best info that I found came from a Tiktok contributor who discussed her surgeries (she is a bilateral Osia wearer) and the device itself. Those videos really helped put my mind at ease. Please ask any questions that you may have; I understand how you feel.
The Osia magnet is VERY comfortable. Because the sound processor is not having to send vibrations through the scalp, the magnet doesn't have to be very strong. I've read that some people experience discomfort with the Baha magnets because they're strong magnets; that's definitely not the case with the Osia magnet. I wear mine all day without noticing it's there physically.
