About the Signia Cellion primax

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.

Signia Cellion primax Reviews

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!

Greetings from the UK - thought you might be interested to read about my experiences with NHS prescribed hearing aids and the Signia Cellion Primax 7 - both provided through difference Specsavers Audiologists.......... Having had outstanding service from their Brighton branch it was sad to accept that the parking restrictions and the way they were being enforced in Brighton meant a move to Worthing branch was best to avoid stress. I had a five year old Advance 813 RIC that was a Siemans product with Specsavers labelling. About a year ago I Specsavers NHS services replaced my old NHS hearing aid with a Siemans Impact Pro M NWL. Although voices were much louder I don't think there was for me much additional clarity but at least I could hear the trafficators on my Freelander! Specsavers keep their private and NHS services completely separate and so I had to see a different audiologist who did some final adjustments to keep the private hearing aid in service. For both the new NHS aid and the 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!

I am not happy with this system, they are not worth the price I paid! Seimens no longer services the Aquarius so I have not choice but to buy new hearing aids. These were recommended by Hearusa as being my best option and comparable to the Aquarius.Compared to my old Siemens Aquarius these are a step backwards, I've made a big mistake. My old Mini-Tek Bluetooth is not compatible with the Cellion. The Mini-Tek transmitter is compatible with the Easy-Tek Bluetooth but has a long lag time when connecting and poor sound quality. The Easy-Tek Bluetooth Is terrible, it will not reconnect to my phone automatically like the Mini-Tek, it must be manually reconnected each time you step out of range and back into range or after the phone connects to a car Bluetooth and the disconnects, it makes answering my phone using the Easy-Tek Bluetooth impossible unless you remember to reconnect. The Easy-Tek does not notify you when you are moving our of range of the phone like the Mini-Tek did. The IPhone APP Bass adjustment does not work. The Easy-Tek is advertised as being compatible with a computer audio output, it is NOT. I am getting random beeps from the hearing aids, first 2 in the right ear followed by 2 in the left ear as if a signal is being sent from the Bluetooth, this is very annoying: NO I am not touching the Bluetooth or my phone. I have a 60 day money back trial period. I'm not getting the support I expected and am considering returning them.

These were recommended by Hearusa as being my best option and comparable to the Aquarius. They do have rechargeable batteries but they only last about 14 hours so if I have a fmily emergency and need to stay somewhere out of town I will be without hearing aids unless I take the charger with me every time I leave my house.

How does the Phonak Bolero B 90 compare with the Signia Pure Primax 7?
