Throughout its history, the Siemens brand has been renowned for developing high-quality listening technologies. While the first behind-the-ear hearing aid was invented by Siemens in 1959, they are best known for pioneering a digital hearing aid with two directional microphones and a waterproof hearing aid.
Sivantos Group, Signia's parent company, has a legacy dating back to 1878 with the founding of the company Siemens. During that year, Werner von Siemens created an amplified telephone receiver after seeing that it was difficult for those with hearing loss to understand on the phone. Siemens’s legacy of helping others continues in Signia's hearing aid products today.
Sivantos recently acquired Siemens Hearing Devices, who have now begun using the Signia brand for their subsequently launched hearing products. Signia has since released a range of quality hearing aids including the Celion, Primax and Styletto.
What features are Signia known for?
The Xperience platform
Conventional hearing aids presume the wearer is stationary and can select only between hearing what is immediately in front of the wearer or listening to his general surroundings. Signia Xperience is the first network of hearing aids that do not adhere to this convention. The platform provides superior sound processing powered by unique acoustic-motion sensors and groundbreaking YourSound technology. It monitors more sound elements than ever before and, for the first time, detects when the wearer is in motion in any situation to produce the most natural and customized sound.
Own Voice Processing (OVP)
Part of Signia's Nx platform allows the user to effectively recreate their own voice's natural sound when wearing hearing aids. OVP offers the most natural all-round hearing experience for the user by managing speech signals from the user's mouth, fully independent of their acoustic environment.
For rapid and easy customization and operation of your hearing aids, the myControl app serves as a remote control. This is the only hearing aid app out there that provides up to 360-degree microphone steering. Users can customize settings for software and speed, low battery intervals, and toggle a flight mode.
Signia's MyHearing App allows you to communicate directly to your hearing health provider to help you fine-tune settings remotely. This reduces the need to visit the hearing practice, a boon for these current times where we all need to continue to socially distance.
Signia Hearing Aids
As a technology pioneer in the hearing aid industry, Signia was the first in the world to create the slim-RIC form factor in the original Styletto model. This groundbreaking design is now available with the Signia Xperience platform in the Styletto X. It blends award-winning design with the sound and voice comprehension of Signia Xperience, compact rechargeability, and Bluetooth communication.
The hearing aid combines all of the advantages of the previous Signia Nx platform with fast wireless charging. Wearers no longer have to think about replacing disposable batteries. The contactless charging port allows users maximum ease of use, and users are secure in the knowledge that they will wake up to fully charged hearing aids every morning. It also comes complete with Signia's OVP technology, helping users appreciate their voice more naturally during their day.
These behind-the-ear hearing aids are designed to provide greater versatility in fitting and accessibility choices. OVP technology juxtaposes the wearer's voice with background sounds, maximizing noise expression awareness. Bluetooth-based direct TV and mobile streaming provide enhanced connectivity, and the myControl App offers mobile control.
This is one of Signia's most discreet models. It is a completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aid and is 20 percent smaller than the previous model. That makes them practically invisible in the ear. The devices rest securely in the ear canal, without needing a custom earmold. They use the smallest available batteries and come with three levels of technology.
Signia Insio Nx hearing aids are small, discreet, custom-made hearing aids that sit inside the ear canal. They are among the tiniest hearing aids to use the Signia Nx technology. They can be operated remotely and ideal for mild, moderate, or extreme hearing loss.
The fact that the microphones of the Insio Nx pick up sound from the inside of the ear means you can make phone calls and listen to music as you would usually do as if you weren't wearing any hearing aids at all.
