Signia Hearing Aids in Hawaii
Learn More about Restoring Your Hearing from Family Hearing Aid Center
As a part of the Sivantos Group, Signia is one of the most popular brands of hearing aids in Hawaii and beyond. Co-branded with Siemens, Signia strives to create a personalized brand built on quality and innovation. They are driven by their customer-centered approach and high-quality hearing products.
The Signia primax portfolio includes a new rechargeable option, the Cellion primax, and the ready-to-wear Silk primax.
The Primax Platform
After the success of the Siemens’ primax hearing aids, the Primax is the most advanced hearing aid currently on the market, providing a better hearing experience even in tough environments. They are also proven in clinical trials to reduce the effort it takes to listen in your everyday life. In fact, a 2015 study conducted at the University of Northern Colorado showed that Primax wearers had a more natural listening experience and benefitted from a reduction in listening effort. This was attributed to Primax’s EchoShield and SpeechMaster technologies.
EchoShield for Comfort & Clarity
For many people, the experience of amplified sound in challenging acoustic spaces leads to uncomfortable listening. For example, spaces such as hallways, lobbies, theatres, atriums, and places of worship may create conditions – due to their architecture and materials – in which sounds reverberate uncomfortably for hearing aid wearers.
To address this common experience, Signia has equipped Primax hearing aids with EchoShield, a feature designed to protect sounds, eliminate reverberations, and reduce listening efforts in difficult acoustic spaces. In conjunction with SoundSmoothing, balanced and preserved sounds and speech contribute to listening ease for Primax wearers.
SpeechMaster for Improved Speech Recognition
For people who experience hearing loss, speech recognition is one of the greatest challenges, with a common complaint, “I can hear, but I cannot understand.” Speech recognition becomes more difficult in conversations with multiple speakers, or in environments with challenging background noise, such as restaurants or transportation hubs. This is where SpeechMaster steps in.
SpeechMaster is powered by noise reduction, directionality, and steering amplification to focus on the dominant sounds the wearer wants to hear. Wearers are provided a focus on the specific sounds that they want to hear, and background noise is greatly reduced to prevent distraction. The SoundSmoothing features provide an added layer of comfort by reducing sharper, louder sounds. With improved speech recognition, Primax wearers experience effortless speech intelligibility. Conversations are a breeze with SpeechMaster, allowing wearers to focus on the speakers’ voices, without distraction from background noise.
HD Music – High Definition & High-Fidelity Sound
While most traditional hearing aids are designed to focus specifically on speech intelligibility, Primax takes access to sound one step further with HD Music. As most of us know, conversations are not the only sounds we miss when we experience hearing loss. For music lovers, HD provides pristine sound quality when it comes to your favorite albums and live performances.
Primax wearers benefit from three unique settings:
- Live Music for listening to indoor or outdoor concerts
- Recorded Music for home listening experiences
- Musician settings for both professional or amateur performers
Styles & Other Features
Signia Primax is available in multiple models from Siemens/Sivantos. These include:
- Insio, which is in-the-ear
- Motion, worn behind-the-ear
- Pure with the receiver in the ear canal
To address varying levels and stages of hearing loss, Primax is available in 7px, 5px, and 3px performance levels.
Signia Cellion is a rechargeable hearing aid that uses lithium-ion contactless battery technology. Simply drop your hearing aids into their charging station overnight and wake up to fully charged devices that last all day. Signia Silk is a ready-to-wear, invisible-in-canal hearing aid that comes in a number of customizable options. Perfect for first time wearers, they provide instant access to clear, unfettered sound.
With wireless capabilities, Primax hearing aids are easily controlled through a smartphone or tablet with accessories such as the touchControl app or easyTek app, giving wearers a seamless experience. For those suffering from tinnitus, Primax offers tinnitus therapy that includes ocean wave or static noise sounds. For those who experience single-sided hearing loss, Primax is available in CROS and BiCROS models, using ear-to-ear technology in which sounds from the unaided ear are transmitted to the other ear, providing a fuller picture of sound.
Additionally, the TwinPhone feature allows Primax wearers to connect wirelessly to their smartphones through a magnetic connection. TwinPhone reduces listening effort on phone conversations, by eliminating feedback and streaming calls directly to your Primax hearing aids.
