Signia hearing aids: clinically proven high-tech for effortless listening*

Signia hearing aids make speech understanding easy. In certain acoustic situations even better than for people with normal hearing**. Click to find out more about our studies.

With Signia hearing aids, hearing impaired persons can understand easily and listen with less effort*. In certain hearing situations, they can hear even better than those with normal hearing**. This has been proven in clinical tests.

Over the course of a typical day, there are many hearing situations in which it is difficult to understand – even for those with normal hearing. On a loud train platform or on the street. In the office, when everyone is talking, in a busy café or restaurant. When a telephone conversation is almost impossible due to wind, reverb or background noises. For the hearing impaired, this often means: I can’t hear a word, even with hearing aids.

High performance also in complex listening environments

Not so with Signia hearing aids. They were specifically developed to enable clear understanding and facilitate listening in these cases as well. The hearing aids in both ears continually exchange the audio signals that they receive. Is this a voice? Where is it coming from and how far away is it? Is it overpowered by background noise? The hearing aids assess the information and process it together, automatically and unnoticed by the wearer. This way they can focus entirely on the respective conversation partner and clearly emphasize his or her voice. Their performance in very noisy situations stands out from the rest, clinically proven**, thanks to its high-tech inside.

Less listening effort day-to-day

This is a pleasant relief for hearing aid wearers. Previously they often had to concentrate intensely in order to understand everything properly. This caused many hearing impaired persons to be exhausted after a long day. However, Signia hearing aids make listening easier to such an extent that the listening effort is significantly reduced. This has been clinically proven too*.

*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.

**Two independent clinical studies have shown that binax can even exceed normal hearing in certain challenging hearing situations (University of Northern Colorado, 2014; Oldenburg Hearing Center, 2013): Speech Reception Thresholds (SRT) in cocktail-party situations improved up to 2.9 dB for wearers with mild to moderate hearing loss using Carat binax or Pure binax hearing aids with narrow directionality, compared to people with normal hearing.
