Signia is one of the largest hearing aid brands in the world. Signia hearing aids are manufactured by WS Audiology, the same parent company that manufactures Widex and Miracle Ear hearing aids. Prior to being purchased by Sivantos in 2015, and merged into WS Audiology in 2019, Signia hearing aids were manufactured under the Siemens brand name.

Siemens technology legacy

Siemens (now Signia) was an early developer of analog hearing aids and was among the first to ship digital hearing aids. It was a pioneer in miniaturization, developing the first hearing aids with directional microphones. And in 2004, it was first to develop wireless ear-to-ear connectivity to coordinate and balance sound inputs between two hearing aids.

An evolving brand

Signia's most recent hearing aid models build on Siemens’ technology legacy with advances in sound processing, connectivity, and rechargeable technologies. They utilize the Signia Nx sound processing platform, which integrates a number of sophisticated technologies that help to improve the hearing aid experience:

  • Ultra HD e2e binaural link enables continuous, full-bandwidth audio exchange between both hearing aids, with patented dual processing of the wearer’s own voice and the remaining soundscape.
  • Binaural beam-forming technology provides clear speech understanding and a more natural listening experience.
  • Own Voice Processing (OVP™) scans and processes the wearer’s own voice completely independently from all other sounds, which helps improve comprehension of other people’s speech.
  • Extended dynamic range delivers 113 dB maximum input, improving signal quality in loud environments.
  • HD spatial algorithms help localize sound.
  • A “Laser-Edge” antenna combines high-quality Bluetooth streaming with Signia’s own 2.4 GHz audio streaming solutions for smartphones and TV.
  • Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries last a full day on an overnight charge.
  • TeleCare 3.0 enables your hearing-health provider to remotely monitor your usage and provide remote online tuning of the hearing aids—a “virtual house call” lets you provide real-time feedback and interact with the provider until the adjustments are just right.

Made-for-iPhone and Bluetooth connectivity

Signia's Made-for-iPhone hearing aids enable wireless audio streaming from iPhones. And Signia provides accessory streamers for connectivity with Android phones, other Bluetooth devices and TVs.

Rechargeable hearing aids

Signia also offers a broad range of rechargeable hearing aids utilizing lithium-ion batteries. Charge&Go Nx models provide overnight recharging, and Styletto Connect hearing aids come with a portable charger for use when traveling. The portable charger gives three full charges to a pair of hearing aids, meaning wearers get four full days of hearing aid use without having to plug in.

Signia hearing aid models

Signia makes premium hearing instruments, programmed by an audiologist or other hearing health professional based on the results of a hearing test. Its broad range of models are for all levels of hearing loss, ranging from first-time users with mild hearing loss to experienced buyers with severe-to-profound hearing loss who have purchased multiple sets of hearing aids. Hearing aid styles include near-invisible in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids as well as receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) and behind-the-ear hearing aids (BTE).

Xperience

With integrated acoustic motion sensors, Signia Xperience hearing aids respond to changes in your listening environment. The motion sensors let the hearing aids know when you are on the move. Then, the Dynamic Soundscape Processing feature responds to the environment and adjusts your hearing aid settings to deliver optimal sound.

Current Xperience hearing aid models — the Pure 312X and Pure Charge&GO X — are improved versions of Signia Pure receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) hearing aids. One is powered by size-312 disposable batteries and the other by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

The Xperience hearing aids are based on Signia’s YourSound technology platform, its next-generation upgrade from the previous Nx platform. They feature Signia’s popular Own Voice Processing (OVP) technology, which makes your own voice sound more natural by processing it separately from other sounds.

Signia says the Xperience chip that powers the YourSound system includes 80% more transistors and seven times the memory of the previous Signia Nx chip, while being 60% smaller. As a result, the Xperience hearing aids are smaller yet more powerful than their predecessors.

Styletto Connect

Styletto Connect hearing aids are known for sleek design, high performance and natural sound quality. Their lithium-ion rechargeable batteries are molded into a slim, curved form factor that sits flat against the side of the head, and they are available in a variety of color options.

Pure Nx

Signia Pure Nx hearing aids are small, discrete, receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) hearing aids suitable for a wide range of hearing loss, from mild to severe. The smallest model utilizes a small number 10 disposable hearing aid battery and sits nearly invisibly behind the ear. Based on the Signia Nx platform, it provides advanced sound processing, Made-for-iPhone capability, and optional Bluetooth streaming accessories.

The Signia Pure Charge&Go Nx model comes with rechargeable batteries that provide all-day use from a single overnight charge. Signia Pure primax hearing aids integrate and update Siemens' legacy "binax" sound processing technology. Among other things, primax technology features advanced sound processing for better understanding of speech in noise, wireless ear-to-ear coordination of sound levels, and the ability to stream audio from a single phone call into both ears.

Motion Nx

Signia’s Motion 13 Nx behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are designed to provide maximum flexibility in fitting and connectivity options. The Signia Nx Own Voice Processing (OVP) technology harmonizes the wearer’s voice with surrounding sounds, enhancing speech understanding in noise. Bluetooth-based direct streaming from the TV and smartphone provides enhanced connectivity and the myControl App offers smartphone control. And the Signia Motion Charge&Go Nx model comes with Signia's rechargeable battery system that provide all-day use from a single overnight charge.

Silk Nx

Signia says its Silk Nx hearing aids offer "the ultimate in discretion." The completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids are 20 percent smaller than their predecessors, making them nearly invisible in the ear. A flexible silicone "click sleeve" slips over the hearing aids and sits securely in the ear canal ear without requiring a custom earmold. They utilize small number 10 disposable hearing aid batteries and come in three technology/performance levels.

Insio Nx

Signia Insio Nx hearing aids are very small, discreet custom-fitted hearing aids that sit within the ear canal. They are the smallest hearing aids to utilize the Signia Nx sound platform and come in a range of sizes. And the Insio Nx ITC/ITE models connect with Bluetooth-enabled TV's and smartphones through a streaming accessory.

CROS Nx

Signia also offers CROS solutions for people with single-sided deafness. The Signia CROS Silk Nx and Signia CROS Pure 312 Nx utilize disposable hearing aid batteries, and Signia CROS Pure Charge&Go is a rechargeable model. CROS solutions are for hearing-aid wearers who have unaidable hearing loss in one ear. Worn behind the ear that has profound hearing loss, they transmit sound from that side of the head to the hearing aid providing amplification for the other ear. CROS solutions have been shown to dramatically increase understanding of speech in noise by people with single-sided deafness.

Other Signia hearing aid models

Signia continues to support multiple older models of its hearing aids. Its Cellion primax hearing aid is technologically similar to Signia's Pure primax, but with the added benefit of rechargeability. Signia claims the Cellion primax can operate for two days on a single charge, or for at least 24 hours with unlimited audio streaming. Signia also says its 30-minute "powercharge" feature enables more than seven hours of use. Other older Signia hearing aids include the Ace, Carat and Intuis3 model lines.

Signia tinnitus solutions

Most Signia hearing aids come with a tinnitus therapy feature. By emitting a customized therapy signal—such as a soothing sound like waves rolling into a beach—it distracts you from focusing on the ringing in your ears. The hearing aids are equipped with different therapy signal types, including four nature-inspired ocean wave signals and five pre-programmed static, white-noise sounds. And Signia’s innovative Tinnitus Notch Therapy treatment is the first to identify the unique tone of the tinnitus and relegate it into the background so the brain learns to ignore it over time.
