Siemens Hearing Systems no longer exist as a company and haven't since 2015.
Siemens had been in the hearing industry for many years, but it had never been a major focus for them and they were struggling somewhat to compete with the other manufacturers who didn't have such a wide array of interests.
In 2015 a firm called Sivantos purchased the hearing aid division of Siemens from Siemens group.
Looking to today, Sivantos are no longer allowed to use the Siemens brand and what was formerly known as Siemens has become Signia. The Signia brand is going strong and with the increased investment from Sivantos, Signia hearing aids are frankly better than Siemens ones ever were.
In early 2019 Sivantos completed a merger with the hearing aid manufacturer Widex to for WS Audiology (standing for Widex Sivantos). This again is a positive move as with the joint research and development capabilities I expect great things to come in future years.
To note, this is not unusual and mergers between hearing aid manufacturers have happened before. Oticon and Bernafon are sister companies, as are Phonak and Unitron. Now with WS Audiology that accounts for six hearing aid manufacturers under the control of just three companies.
Do not spend hundreds of pounds without getting a second opinion from us.
When we refer to a product as 'New', we mean that the product is new to the market.
When we refer to a product as 'Superseded', we mean that there is a newer range available which replaces and improves on this product.
When we refer to a product as an 'Older Model', we mean that it is has been superseded by at least two more recent hearing aid ranges.
