Hearing Aids

Signia, formerly known as Siemens, is renowned for advancements in hearing aid technology. Siemens Hearing Instruments was founded in 1874 in Berlin, with the mission to improve the lives of people with hearing loss. In 1959, Siemens introduced the first behind-the-ear hearing aid, and in 1966, they produced the first in-the-ear hearing aid. Siemens broke new ground in 2014 with the Binax, the first hearing aid to outperform normal hearing. Since then, with the release of the Primax and Nx platforms, Signia continues to break new ground by pushing the boundaries of hearing technology and providing wearers with a natural, seamless listening experience.

Signia Primax & Nx


In 2015, the University of Northern Colorado conducted a series of speech tests with participants wearing Primax hearing aids. Results indicated that two main features, SpeechMaster and EchoShield, played an important role in reducing listening effort throughout the day. Signia Primax is available in a number of styles, as well as two models, Cellion and Silk (see below) that make listening even easier for wearers.

The brand-new Nx platform provides wearers with faster own-voice recognition. With new hearing aids, wearers may take 30 to 90 days to adjust to the sound of their own voice. Nx’s fast processing platform cuts this adjustment period down significantly, for a more natural listening experience.

Signia Listening Features


SpeechMaster: People with hearing loss often experience challenges with speech recognition, especially in conversations with multiple speakers or noisy environments such as a restaurant. With SpeechMaster, ultra-fast algorithms process and deliver clear sound to wearers, so that they are able to focus on the voices they want to hear.

SpeechMaster relies on a combination of noise reduction, directionality (microphones), and improved amplification (elevating the target speaker above other environmental sounds) to provide effortless speech recognition. EEG brain activity tests have found that this combination of features reduces listening effort throughout the day – whether you’re at the breakfast table or the office.

EchoShield: For some hearing aid wearers, the experience of being in acoustically challenging spaces (hallways, foyers, auditoriums, etc.) may create harsh, degraded, or muddled sounds. EchoShield addresses these challenges, giving wearers more clarity in these acoustically challenging spaces. EchoShield works to clarify the overamplified, uncomfortable sounds, providing wearers with the clarity, for an effortless listening experience.

TwinPhone: In this age of smartphones, the Signia TwinPhone feature makes conversations so much easier. Signia acknowledges that 60% of people hold their phones to their ears when talking; TwinPhone eliminates this and provides a comfortable and clear listening experience with your phone conversations. Furthermore, TwinPhone activates both hearing aids, which means your conversations are fed to both ears, for a more immersive sound experience.

HD Music: While traditional hearing aids focus on improving speech sounds, Primax takes it a step further with HD Music. HD Music is designed for music lovers, capturing the richness of music that would otherwise be missed with hearing loss. This feature improves recorded and live music, as well as the listening experience of musicians while they perform.

Wireless Connectivity:  Through Bluetooth, easyTek is an app that connects to your Primax hearing aids, turning them into a stereo headset that streams sound directly from your devices to your ears. easyTek also allows wearers to make simple adjustments to their listening experience.

Signia Models & Styles



Cellion Primax: Consumers have asked for a smart rechargeable hearing aid and Signia has answered with the Cellion Primax. Cellion’s lithium-ion battery uses inductive-charging, which means they begin charging as soon as they touch their contacts in the recharging station.

With this brand-new, incredibly fast rechargeable technology, Cellion Primax provides wearers with peace of mind and confidence throughout the day that their devices will not run out of juice. With a six-hour charge, Cellion provides wearers with 24 hours of uninterrupted listening. If you’ve got less time, a 30-minute charge will run for six hours! There’s no need to replace the battery – it lasts the lifetime of the hearing aid, saving your wallet and the environment from replacement batteries.



Silk Primax: With traditional hearing aids, wearers had to go in for a few fittings before their hearing aids were customized to meet their specific fit and hearing needs. Silk Primax changes the game with silicon “Click Sleeves.” Available in various sizes to fit most ear canals, this in-the-canal hearing aid can be worn out of the office, giving you immediate access to the sounds of your life.



Other Signia Models: For people who experience single-sided hearing loss, Primax offers CROS and BiCROS hearing aids options. Requiring low energy, CROS/BiCROS Primax hearing aids improve speech localization, spatial perception, and noise reduction, creating a well-rounded listening experience. Signia’s ear-to-ear (e2e) technology mixes sounds from both hearing aids to provide wearers with the full spectrum of sound in their environment.
