Besides noisy public places, locations with reverberation make it harder to understand speech. Rooms with hard surfaces such as bare walls or marble floors reflect more sound and cause more reverberation than rooms with carpet, drapes or furniture which absorb sound waves. Unpleasant and distracting sound reflections not only occur in places in which you may only spend a short while, such as large foyers or entrance halls, but often in training rooms and classrooms as well. The EchoShield function in Signia hearing aids reduces these negative effects in environments in which you need to pay particular attention to what is being heard. The speech signals are made clear and crisp, reducing listening effort to the wearer.
Adam, our hearing aid model will help you experience our new primax™ feature, EchoShield, in this real-life demonstration video.
Wearing the latest Signia hearing aids, the hard of hearing will exert less effort to listen throughout the day – clinically-proven.*
You have our assurance that the sound of these hearing aids has not been processed in any way, everything you hear has been recorded directly with primax hearing aids.
Listen for yourself.
* Study conducted at the University of Northern Colorado, 2015, examined the effectiveness of the new features of primax by collecting and analyzing ongoing EEG data while subjects performed speech testing. For both primax features SPEECH and EchoShield, the objective brain behavior measures revealed a significant reduction in listening effort when the feature was activated.
