It all goes fine until the person you're sat next to you tries to talk to you. You just can't make out what they are saying as they are not the focus of your hearing aids. You could turn your head and stare directly at them, making them the focus of your hearing aids, however we just don't tend to do that as it would seem a bit odd and might get us dis-invited from future social occasions. I exaggerate of course, but you want to be able to act naturally and enjoy the meal, rather than having to second guess what your hearing aids are doing all of the time.
With the Signia Xperience hearing aid, if you acted naturally and inclined your head slightly toward the person at your side when they spoke to you, the motion sensors in the hearing aids would be tracking this movement and would intuit that your hearing intention was to hear the person in the direction you have inclined your head and it would immediately shift the focus of your hearing towards them to facilitate this.
As always, the efficacy of this system is backed up with data from research done both in the lab and in real world situations. The results were encouraging showing comparisons between how the aids performed with the sensors turned on when compared to having them turned off. In background noise situations where the person wearing the aids is moving, hearing understanding in noise and overall satisfaction were both improved.
However, this only compares their own technology, essentially the Xperience Pure compared to their previous range, the Nx Pure. What is doesn't do is show comparisons to technology by other manufacturers.
Early impressions are that it is going in the right direction. By increasing environmental awareness and avoiding the narrow focusing of hearing in noise is a very similar approach to the OpenSound system used by Oticon, and that is a system that is generally considered about the best in the world for hearing in background noise at present.

Aside from the obvious, COVID 19 causes a lot of problems for hearing aid users. From masks muffling speech and taking away speech cues to hearing aids getting pinged off the back of your ears by your mask straps. Signia have reacted quickly to provide some innovative options to help to alleviate these difficulties. "Mask mode" is a specific program that boosts the frequencies that are muffled by a mask and can be turned on when needed.
The new hearing devices have been built on the Xperience platform – the world’s first hearing technology to provide you with the benefit of acoustic-motion sensors, designed to adapt and suit your personal preferences. Whether you value discretion, style, or modern high-tech - Signia Xperience ‘state-of-the-art’ hearing devices provide the ideal solution!
Your life does not stand still. Whether you are out jogging, chatting with friends on zoom or simply relaxing around the house, approximately 90 percent of your activities involve motion - meaning your surroundings change constantly. And as you move, your acoustic environment changes.
This is why hearing can go from easy to nearly impossible in just a few seconds – for example, as you move from the relatively quiet surroundings of your home or car to a busier, acoustically more challenging place like a car park or ‘traffic filled’ street!
To join all the important conversations in life (cheerful or serious, inspirational or trivial) - we need to understand speech all the time.
The issue with many historic hearing aids is that they either focus on what is directly in front of you or on your general surroundings, often missing important sounds that matter. Signia Xperience is the first hearing aid platform ever that does not make that compromise. It can do both at the same time.
In addition, it is difficult to follow a conversation while walking or running because existing hearing aids assume that the wearer is not in motion. As a world’s first, Signia Xperience takes motion into account so that you can easily follow conversations - even in active or motion influenced situations.
Styletto X delivers the most complete hearing experience by combining award-winning design, portable rechargeability, and Bluetooth connectivity – with all the audiological benefits of the Xperience platform. Beautifully crafted to seamlessly fit your lifestyle, Styletto X combines a sleek form with metallic accents, evocative of familiar high-end Bluetooth devices. In five contemporary colours, you will want to show this device off!
Silk X provides you with ultimate discretion if you’d rather keep your hearing loss hidden. The only ready-to-wear hearing aid on the successful Signia Xperience platform, Silk X delivers clear speech understanding in a nearly invisible form! Proving that good things really can come in tiny packages; Silk X is a nifty little solution – comparable in size to a pistachio nut!
Your very own hearing companion – always on hand, within the Signia app! The Signia Assistant is a highly intelligent system that is inspired by the human brain - solving challenges, learning, and evaluating each interaction completely anonymously. With Artificial Intelligence, the Assistant ensures that you always benefit from the best possible hearing-solution in any situation, tailored to your specific needs and preferences (like having a Hearing Care Assistant in your pocket)!
