The Silk X is the latest instant-fit completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aid from Signia. Unlike other CIC hearing aids, the Silk X does not need to be custom-fitted to your ear using a traditional earmold or ear scan procedure. Instead, the hearing aid is compatible with a variety of "click sleeves" which enable a robust fit with most ear canals. This means the hearing aids can typically be fit in a single office visit, as there is no wait for 3D-print manufacturing, which is typical for most custom products in 2020.
The Silk X has Binaural OneMic Directionality 2.0 with Ultra HD e2e technology and runs on the new Xperience platform from Signia. Binaural OneMic enables microphones from each hearing aid to work together to create a directional listening pattern for amplifying speech in front of you preferentially. Directionality is typically used to help improve hearing when in a crowded environment.
Remote control of the Silk X is possible via the miniPocket™ and Signia App. While remote fitting support (TeleCare) is available for the Silk X, wireless streaming via Bluetooth is only available in other Signia Xperience products, like the Styletto X and Pure X. There are also a number of other Xperience software features that are unavailable on the Silk, such as Signia's signature Own Voice Processing (OVP) technology. Read more about the Xperience platform.
