Siemens Audiology Solutions was purchased by the Sivantos Group in late 2014. Sivantos, who are based in Europe, are now in the process of transitioning out the Siemens brand name for their hearing aids, and have just released a new family of hearing aids under the new brand name Signia.
The new Signia primax hearing aids look very similar to the Siemens binax family of hearing aids, and are relatively similar in terms of technology. Here is a list of notable improvements:
SpeechMaster: More than a single feature or innovation, SpeechMaster is a collection of algorithms that work in concert to require less listening effort. SpeechMaster analyzes the acoustic environment and employs the first technology that is clinically proven to isolate the target speaker from unwanted surrounding noise and other speech. SpeechMaster acts as a conductor orchestrating digital noise reduction, directionality, and amplification to reduce listening effort. This is achieved by reducing noise and highlighting the dominant speaker's voice in all speech environments throughout the day.
HD Music: Beyond the universal program, which enhances higher frequencies with its 12 kHz extended bandwidth, the wearer can experience richer, fuller sound and outstanding music quality at a concert, listening to music from a sound system, or while performing music through the dedicated HD music program. The perfect program to maximize enjoyment for music lovers and musicians.
EchoShield softens reflected sound for better sound quality and reduced listening effort in places where there is high reverberation – atriums, hallways, lecture halls, and places of worship.
TwinPhone: Sixty percent of mobile phone users hold their phones to their ear, even when there is a hands-free option. TwinPhone is the optimal solution for these wearers. It is automatically activated by a magnetic signal, so the wearer hears the caller in both ears for better understanding.

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

I have had the Signia Cellion Primax 7px hearing aids for nearly a year. I have returned for warranty work both units . The left twice and the right 3 times. Everytime they say they replace the module and sometimes the part that goes in the ear. The last time they were returned (they had both malfunctioned) the company evidently had lost the settings. My original supplier is too far away to reprogram them now and I will have to pay $250 to have them reprogrammed. While I have been awaiting my next hearing test to get them reset, the right hearing aid has quit functioning as well. I am getting very perturbed with my $7500/pair hearing aids not working shortly after I have had them reworked under warranty. And I can find no way to contact Signia personally to reach out to them. Because of lack of contact and warranty work being shoddy, I would have to rate them a ZERO.
I have been very happy with my Signia 13 BT hearing aids. Bluetooth has been working great and really enjoy taking phone calls and having it streamed to my aids. Music streaming is also a nice feature and was improved with changing to a closed dome. The open dome didn't handle music well at all for me. Batteries last about 1 week. For everyday hearing, I can really see an improvement with these hearing aids. Conversations are easy to follow and I no longer need to have people repeat themselves. I can hear things now that I was missing and never knew I was missing it. For the most part they are comfortable and I forget I even have them on. One problem I have is when I try to wear sunglasses and keeping the hearing aids in place. I haven't found a solution for that yet. The biggest improvement I have had is in noisy rooms and places where there are several conversations going on. I used to really struggle to hear conversations and would usually just pretend I could hear what was being said. I can now follow and understand what is being said. The Reverberant program has been very good in areas with echo or loud background noise.
Every 3 years or so I get new hearing aids. In each case the new ones outperform the old ones. Sort of Moore's Law. My next pair will probably have Bluetooth and given my high frequency loss of -110db, frequency compression may work better with more powerful processors.
The hearing aids are very comfortable to wear. The speech and noisy environments are improved greatly. The app allows for spatial configuration so you can pick the direction of focused hearing like in a noisy restaurant. If I select the direction across the table, the noise behind me is subdued greatly, which allows for an enjoyable evening to visiting. Music and TV sound good. I'm happy with these hearing aids. Had them for about 2 months.
excellent sound when paired with my iphone 5... occasionally I have to restart the phone (two times a week) when the HAs suddenly lose contact with my iPhone. when i plug in to my Peugeot 308 and the car sees my phone as an ipod it starts playing my playlist automatically but in my ears rather than in the car stereo... I can just stop the itunes on my iphone from playing but if I want the music in the car.... I have to go into options, general, accessibility, hearing aids , audio routing to keep this from happening ("media never on hearing devices")... a little clunky. The telephone works perfectly in the car... it knows to go to the car's sound system and not to my ears automatically. --- generally very satisfied... after using them for 1 month. (pure 700 before that) -------------- looking for solution to used them with my computer... will signia market a small interface that's cheaper than the 200 dollar connection for a tv?
I absolutely love being able to get help from home. I wasted a lot of time traveling back and forth from the city to have my hearing aids tuned up (with my last aids), but now I'm able to deal with most stuff using the app, and get tune ups from my audi when I need extra help.
My hearing aid has been doing very well and I really enjoy it! After a few minutes, I forget it's even there and I can go all day with it on and not worry about it falling out or even being noticed by other people. I enjoy the bluetooth connectivity and the ability to adjust the settings on my phone. So far I have not had any problems with it.
Have only had a week now so still getting used to them. However they are night and day compared to my old ones and they were top of the line from another manufacturer. I did however have to have a cros for my left ear this time. It makes a tremendous difference. I'd highly recommend these aids.
