Hearing can go from easy to challenging in seconds. In noisy environments, it can be especially hard to understand what others are saying. Our latest hearing aids with award-winning Signia Augmented Experience (AX) technology¹ let you enjoy hearing in challenging situations. They give you the peace of mind of a consistently enjoyable hearing experience under the changing demands of everyday life. Thanks to these highly advanced hearing solutions, an overwhelming 95% of wearers are satisfied with Signia AX.²
How does Signia AX achieve this level of satisfaction? Successful hearing relies on the right balance between making speech audible and ensuring that all other sounds are recognizable. Only then can you perform at your best. Many environments and situations come with specific challenges. The type of speech, the type of sound, your movement and each room’s acoustics contribute significantly to your ability to hear and perform throughout the day.
Revolutionary split processing
Signia AX bridges all these variables so that you hear and perform brilliantly in every situation. It is based on our proven AX technology, which splits audio signals into different streams and processes them independently of each other with dedicated processors. This brings speech closer to you with unprecedented clarity while making the background sound as relevant as ever.
A recent study confirms that Signia AX is the popular choice:
- 4 times more people prefer AX hearing aids to their previous hearing aid.
- 3 out of 4 wearers experience less listening effort with AX than with their previous hearing aid.³
Three innovations now further enhance the Augmented Xperience of Signia hearing aids:
HandsFree for iPhone
This exciting new feature uses your hearing aids’ Bluetooth® technology to enable you to use them for hands-free mobile phone calls – even in noisy environments. This gives you more freedom to combine phone calls with other activities or to listen to music or podcasts via your hearing aids.
By using the unique split processing power of Signia AX, background noise is reduced, allowing you to hear clearly what is being said on the phone. And the hearing aids’ built-in microphone lets your conversation partner hear your voice in high quality.
This innovative feature automatically analyzes each room’s acoustics and adapts the signal processing accordingly. If you enter rooms with extreme echo or boominess, Auto EchoShield controls and processes those sounds according to your needs and listening comfort. As a result, you enjoy an excellent listening experience in every environment regardless of the quality of the room acoustics.
The Auto EchoShield solution harnesses the processing power of Signia AX, which separates speech from background noise. Thanks to real-time room analysis, the room acoustics’ contribution to the background noise is assessed and addressed instantly. The result is seamless hearing in all environments. Auto EchoShield is always active, so that all environments sound just as engaging as they should.
Own Voice Processing 2.0
Your own voice can sometimes sound different when amplified by your hearing aids. If you have ever been distracted by the way you yourself sound when wearing hearing aids, our newly developed Own Voice Processing 2.0 makes this sound natural by detecting your voice and giving it specific attention.
The revolutionary processing power of Signia AX has enabled us to re-design our unique audiological technology that automatically optimizes the sound of your own voice independently from all other voices and sounds. As soon as the hearing aids detect your own voice, one processor handles the voice signal. The other processor controls the environment, without having to compromise between the two signals. As a result, your own voice sounds less loud, leading to more enjoyable conversations.
These exciting new features are available with the full range of Signia AX hearing aids.4 From the award-winning design5 for brilliant hearing of Styletto AX to the rechargeable hearing aid customized to fit in your ear canal, Insio Charge&Go AX, to the outstanding speech clarity and versatility of our Pure AX hearing aids – with Signia AX, your ability to perform at your best in all conversations everywhere just became even more brilliant.
