"..I have been delighted"

I would thoroughly recommend the team at Clarity Hearing Solutions. Having resisted wearing a hearing aid I have been delighted with the device fitted by Simon Cowell and wear it constantly. His initial expertise and advice has been supplemented by friendly and efficient follow up, which is always easily accessible.

The Latest Signia / Siemens Hearing Aids

Signia, is the new brand name for Siemens hearing aids. Siemens were an exceptionally well known German company and their hearing aid division was one of the largest manufacturers of hearing aids worldwide. The hearing aid division was purchased a couple of years ago by a private consortium named Sivantos. Sivantos have not rested on their laurels, they quickly introduced the Binax and then Primax powered range of hearing aids which have amazed the hearing aid profession. Sivantos have now changed their hearing aid brand to Signia but they are still dual branded Siemens, but this is something that will slowly change over the next couple of years.

Siemens / Sivantos offer their hearing aids in a similar way to Phonak, they name their hearing aid types differently and use a numeral to signify the technology level. For instance, the Primax platform (chipset) is split into three technology levels, the 7 at the top, through 5 to 3 at the bottom. The hearing aids types are called Insio for custom hearing aids, Motion for BTE hearing aids and they have four different RIC / RITE hearing aid types called Pure, Carat, Cellion and Ace.

Amazing Innovation, Fine Tuning of Hearing Aids Remotely

Sivantos have proved themselves to be as innovative as any other manufacturer, they have recently introduced two major new innovations. Their rechargeable hearing aids will now use Lithium-ion technology which will give professionals the confidence to recommend them. Secondly, they have introduced an app that will allow deeper collaboration between users and professionals. One of the biggest new things in the app is remote fine tuning of hearing aids or tele-health. This is real innovation and we believe that all of the manufacturers can be expected to follow. It will mean that users will no longer have to physically attend the office for changes to their hearing instruments, something that many will be thankful for. Let's take a look at their stuff. 

Signia Pure BT 13

Imagine trying to talk to a friend in a crowded bar or at a busy railway station. You can still hear and understand, but you need to concentrate. In these situations, listening requires a lot of effort because the background noise is as loud as, or louder than what we are trying to listen to. In a crowded place, we talk very closely to our conversation partner and we raise our voice to be heard. Signia’s primax platform supports such challenging listening situations by deploying its unparalleled narrow directionality. primax wearers are clinically proven to hear even better in very noisy situations than people with normal hearing.*

* 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 SpeechMaster and EchoShield, the objective brain behavior measures revealed a significant reduction in listening effort when the feature was activated.

Sometimes it’s good to hear what’s important more clearly than all the background noise.

While the device is labelled a CIC, for some lucky people it is actually an invisible hearing aid.
