Signia Extends Performance Levels and Features in Augmented Xperience (AX) Hearing Aid Portfolio
Signia has expanded its Augmented Xperience (AX) family of products with new extended hearing aid performance levels, an upgraded eWindScreen feature, improved AX Soundscape Processing functionality, and a new Multi Charger charging solution. Newly based in Metro Park, NJ (starting in March), Signia is one of the world’s leading hearing aid brands and is part of the WS Audiology (WSA) group which includes the Widex and Rexton brands.
The Signia Augmented Experience (AX) product line.
The new enhancements are designed to assist hearing care professionals (HCPs) in achieving the best fit for their patients with a complete portfolio that optimizes listening experiences.
“Signia is committed to developing the world’s first technologies that enhance hearing in even the most immersive environments, equipping our HCP partners with the solutions they need to deliver a brilliant fit for their patients,” said Signia VP of Marketing Jennifer Wright, AuD, in a press statement. “With our Augmented Xperience platform, we’ve changed the way patients hear the world; now, beginning today, HCPs can offer more patients than ever before the opportunity to hear brilliantly, regardless of their hearing loss level and budget.”
New AX Options and Features
All hearing aids on the Augmented Xperience platform—including Signia Styletto AX, Signia Pure Charge&Go AX, Signia Insio Charge&Go AX and Signia Pure 312 AX—are now available in performance levels 1AX and 2AX, in addition to premium performance levels 3AX-7AX.
According to Signia, every patient fit with hearing aids on the AX platform will benefit from Signia’s world's first Augmented Focus™ technology that processes speech and background noise separately to create a clear contrast between the two. It then recombines them to deliver outstanding speech clarity even in a fully immersive soundscape.
Improved eWindScreen and Soundscape Processing
Beginning March 1, 2023, an upgraded eWindScreen feature and improved AX Soundscape Processing functionality will be available through Connexx 9.9 or later.
Available in performance levels 2AX-7AX, the AX upgraded eWindScreen is designed to reduce wind sounds, helping wearers engage better in outdoor communication and activities. eWindScreen builds on Signia’s existing Wind Noise Canceller to collectively identify wind and react smarter and faster to fluctuating wind noise.
Available in performance levels 3AX-7AX, and when Signia’s Own Voice Processing (OVP) 2.0 is activated, improved AX Soundscape Processing leverages OVP 2.0 to provide better processing of not only the wearer’s own voice but of the entire sound environment, including the voices on which the wearer wants to focus.
New Multi Charger
Available in Summer 2023, Signia's new Multi Charger offers flexibility for use in an HCP’s office and on-the-go for Signia patients. The Multi Charger will be compatible with Signia Motion Charge&Go P X, Signia Motion Charge&Go SP X, Signia Active Pro, Signia Active, Signia Pure Charge&Go AX, and Signia Pure Charge&Go T AX.

Operational enhancements and additional staff at new Metro Park, NJ office
In addition to product updates, Signia is committed to delivering more reliable and timely service to help HCPs’ businesses run even better throughout the year. In addition to training new staff and enhancing system functionality, in March 2023, Signia will open its new office in Metro Park, NJ, to better serve HCPs.
“At Signia, we understand that developing the world’s first technologies and iconic innovations is just part of our commitment to our HCP partners.” said Signia U.S. President Mike O'Neil. “An equally important component is delivering reliable service excellence that they can count on each day. We’re confident that our 2023 operational enhancements will help us better deliver the exceptional support that our HCPs require to thrive in today’s dynamic business environment, and we look forward to providing a brilliant fit for HCPs and their patients through our dedicated support, service, and new solutions designed to help them succeed.”
