Signia Hearing Aids
Siemens hearing aids are world famous, a couple of years ago they were purchased by a large consortium called Sivantos. Since then, Siemens hearing aids have been dual branded with Siemens and Signia. Slowly but surely, the Siemens name is fading and most people now recognise the Signia brand. Sivantos have strongly built on the foundations and legacy of Siemens introducing several new innovations over the last few years. Their latest platform is called the Integrated Xperience (IX) and it is an outstanding offering.
Signia hearing aid technology is generally split into three levels, for instance, the IX platform (chipset) is generally split into three technology levels, the 7 at the top, through 5 and 3 at the bottom. They name their hearing aids types differently though, they use Insio for custom hearing aids, Motion for BTE hearing aids and Pure for different RIC / RITE hearing aid types. As well as having their very popular Styletto range and instant fit Silk.
Signia has also become one of the leaders in Lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aids. So although the new IX platform is only available as their RIC/RITE rechargeable option and their instant fit Silk rechargeable, the rest of the range will surely follow.
Signia Integrated Xperience Hearing Aids - Be Brilliant!
As we said, Signia has launched a brand new platform that they are calling the IX. The platform has several new features which many are excited about already. Let's take a look at both the devices and the features on offer.
Three Levels of Technology
The IX platform is currently available in three levels of technology currently, the 7IX, the 5IX and the 3IX.
Finally, A Hearing Aid Built for Conversation
Real conversations don’t stand still. They’re dynamic, unpredictable, and alive. That’s what makes them important, but also makes them challenging for hearing aids to deal with.
It’s time for a hearing aid designed to keep up.
We created Signia Integrated Xperience with the dynamic nature of conversations in mind. This innovative hearing technology tracks the wearer's head movements and the shifting positions of speakers around them to ensure uninterrupted engagement, a frequent challenge for hearing aid wearers.
First, it analyzes over 192,000 data points every second - identifying each individual speaker and analyzing conversation dynamics to reflect real-life conversations authentically.
Next, it uses this data to augment multiple independent auditory focus streams that lock on and enhance each speaker’s voice. Meanwhile, Augmented Focus split processing technology processes background sound to ensure a comfortable, immersive conversational experience without distractions.
Finally, it adapts to the environment – updating 1000 times a second to fuse multiple focus streams into a live auditory space that smoothly adapts to the conversation as it flows and evolves.

- Optional Bluetooth connectivity via streamer
*firmware upgrade required.
They have expanded their Bluetooth system across this range, offering direct connection with all of the devices. Their original offering, the Pure 13 BT which was released on the Nx platform was very well received, the system was innovative in that it used the sensors on the iPhone to assess the forward movement of a user. This allowed the hearing aids to change how they were processing sound. This system and feature set has now been expanded across the new range of hearing aids.
This is a really interesting development, Signia has made the Telecare service a live service. They were initially the first hearing aid brand to offer Telecare with a limited fine-tuning option. Signia though quickly expanded that fine-tuning option and added video calling to the system. Now they have enabled full live remote tuning with video support which is a pretty huge breakthrough.
The new service means that you can set-up a video call with your hearing professional and explain the issue you are having in the situation you are having it in. While you are connected, your hearing professional can tweak your hearing aid’s settings live and you can quickly assess if they are better. So for the first time ever, it’s possible to have a provider to fine-tune your hearing aids while you are in the listening environments that matter to you.
The NEW Silk IX is the ideal solution for those who value discretion above all. Silk IX's small, subtle design effrortlessly merges into your daily routine, allowing you to hear clearly without drawing attention to your hearing aid.
Silk Charge&Go IX, the world's only CIC with Binaural OneMic Directionality, is now Rechargeable. Unbelievably for a device so small, it can last an entire day on a single charge.
The Silk Charge&Go IX can be charged on the go with a sleek, pocket-sized case with integrated power bank that provides up to four additional charges and can be charged wirelessly (Qi) for added convenience.
The only ready-to-wear CIC available on the successful Signia Xperience platform delivers clear speech understanding in an ultra discreet size. Silk X is fitted with a highly adaptable soft-silicone sleeve that ensures a level of comfort and retention in the ear formerly reserved for custom-built solutions. The Click Sleeves come in 4 different sizes and an open and closed solution, making it a suitable solution for most ear anatomies and audiological needs. Signia's second generation of Binaural OneMic Directionality means even in the smallest of instruments the listener receives crystal clear speech even in the most difficult of listening environments.
