Signia recently released Cellion primax, the world's most sophisticated inductive-charging rechargeable hearing aid. Cellion primax is technologically similar to Signia's Pure primax, but with the added benefit of rechargeability. Signia claims the Cellion primax can operate at least 24 hours, with unlimited audio streaming. If true, this places the Cellion primax in the lead (in terms of rechargeable battery longevity) against Phonak's new Audéo B-R rechargeable hearing aid. According to Signia, a 30-minute "powercharge" feature enables for more than seven hours of use. We're not sure if that 7 hours includes any audio streaming at this point.
Note: We've seen conflicting information about the IP rating for the Cellion primax (68 versus 67), so we're being conservative and assigning the lower of the two reported ratings.

Hearing aid reviews are fundamentally different from reviews for most other consumer electronic products. The reason is because individual factors, like degree of hearing loss, have a profound effect one's success and overall satisfaction with the product. When purchasing a hearing aid, you'll need to consider more than just your hearing outcome. Hearing aids are manufactured with varying levels of quality; some hearing aids are extremely durable, while others suffer frequent breakage. Battery life also varies between models, and manufacturer predictions of battery life are often optimistic. By collecting feedback from consumers, we can get a better idea of real world product durability and battery life... Continue reading

For both the new NHS aid and my five year old updated private one I needed subtitles to understand television programs although I have a good quality soundbar fitted. The loudness of the NHS aid won for being able to hear the car trafficators but the old private aid had the quality to better enjoy music - although the dedicated music program seemed to boost volume rather than frequency range. In the motoring world we talk about the differences in price and facilities between a Rolls Royce and a Skoda that both perform the same transport job and (unless you are Royalty) get stuck in the same traffic jams! For me with what I thought was adequate transport the Signia Cellion Primax 7 at nearly £3000 a pair in the UK was the equivalent of investing in a luxury motor vehicle. Specsavers 90 day satisfaction guarantee (previous experience of them honouring this) encourage me to have a test drive. I really had doubts as to whether one wee electronic device should cost so much more and so on the fitting day there was not too much excitement. Mark, the audiologist fitted the new hearing aid and the first thing I noticed was my wife smiling. I must have relaxed immediately because I had not been provided with a loud hearing aid! It seemed comfortable and quiet. Mark then asked if I noticed any difference in my voice and it seemed a little huskier and I was gradually noticing a very slight sibilance. Mark explained why this was a good thing. The Primax 7 is opening up a new social life. I can hear my wife talking to me normally from the side and even behind me or next to me in the car. She had been accustomed only to communicate essentials as without direct face to face contact much conversation was missed. The trafficator of the Freelander was audible as a gentle reminder and not a punishing intrusion as from the NHS aid. Being hearing impaired can be very tiring as to some extent you are translating partly heard sentences to provide an understandable message. At the end of day one I had closed my eyes in front of television not to fall into a tired seep but to have the joy of listening to a program without need of reading subtitles . Special thanks to Specsavers and the Signia production team. PS I purchased a Smartphone hopefully to be able to enjoy direct connection between the mobile phone and my new hearing aid. The bluetooth connection between the smartphone and car telephone system gives excellent results. Unfortunately the downloaded application from Signia seemed to pair with a bleep and then impose a slider that the system was too loud. On adjusting that slider the pairing seemed to be cancelled and could not be restored. Thought I would start again and so uninstalled the application. When I went to download again it would not do so stating incorrectly that the uninstalled system was still installed, Not sure even if this app is installed it will achieve my desired objective of direct sound communication between the mobile phone and the hearing aid. Possibly it only replicates the the main features of the remote?
Overall I am very happy with this hearing aid. I enjoy the convenience of not having to change my batteries, and so far the battery life has been as promised. I only wear my hearing aids around 8-10 hours per day, and use them to stream music and phone calls for a few hours a day, especially while at work. They haven't died on me yet!
