The buzz about the latest Signia technology offers very functional improvements in voice perception, hearing in noise, tinnitus treatment, connection to phones, TVs, and other electronic devices. The X circuit is available in three levels of technology, and the level is based on your score on a speech in noise test. The higher the level of technology, the better your hearing in noise. So, the audiologist will not recommend a level of technology that is "more than you need." These hearing aids are touted to enable the user to hear in noise as well as an individual with normal hearing. Additional features of the X hearing aid include:
"Made for iPhone®” functionality
Compatibility with Android and Apple products using a streamline mic
Wireless connectivity to a smartphone
Signia continues to offer more options for tinnitus treatment than the other manufacturers, so, if tinnitus is a big part of the communication difficulty, Signia aids are recommended. X hearing aids feature unique, built-in tinnitus therapies.
This the best hearing aid amongst all maufacturers to stream music or TV, to hear in noisy environments, to hear on a cell phone. All Bluetooth cell phones can be paired to this hearing aid, not just Apple products.
This is the best hearing aid I know about for individuals with a severe to profound hearing loss. It is water resistant, available at four levels of technology, and is often covered by state health insurance benefits.
Bluetooth (BT) technology continues to be available from nearly every manufacturer of hearing aids. The reason is clear: BT improves clarity on the telephone, on television, in groups, and at long distances, when it is programmed into the hearing aid. Several manufactures have discontinued the use of streamers. Each manufacturer has a different strategy; most manufacturers enjoy collaborating with Apple to make apps available to add very helpful features to the hearing aid.
