Completely-in-canal hearing aids are worn deep inside the ear canal and are an excellent solution for people who want discretion. In the past, being fitted for completely-in-canal hearing aids required a few visits to take a mold of your ear canal, in order to ensure a proper fit. The new Signia Silk primax changes everything, combining two innovative technologies: Click Sleeves and the primax hearing platform. Signia Silk primax is a ready-to-wear, completely-in-canal hearing aid that provides wearers with immediate access to the sounds of their life.
A Ready-to-Wear, Custom Hearing Solution
Signia’s Click Sleeves are crafted from silicone and are available in six flexible options to fit most ear canals. Designed to provide ventilation and comfort, Click Sleeves simply “click” to attach to the electronic component of the Signia primax completely-in-canal hearing aid and are inserted deep in the ear canal where they are virtually invisible.
For first time users of hearing aids, or long-time wearers of hearing aids, for that matter, Signia Silk provides instant access to clear sounds, as well as ease and comfort. The color-coded design (red for the right ear and blue for the left ear) ensures a user-friendly experience. Click Sleeves eliminate the wait time found with traditional in-the-ear hearing aids and provides wearers immediate access to the benefits of hearing technology.
“First-time hearing aid wearers often prefer the near-invisibility that up until now could only be achieved with a custom-made CIC, yet they don’t like the extra wait time needed for the manufacturer to custom build the instruments. Silk solves this problem by combining both the acoustic and cosmetic benefits of an advanced custom CIC with the immediate availability of a receiver-in-canal (RIC). In fact, we think of Silk as a RIC without the wire.” Signia’s CEO, Scott Davis, talking about the design behind Signia Silk
SIGNIA PRIMAX PLATFORM
Signia Silk is built on the primax platform, available as a completely-in-canal model. Signia primax is the company’s most advanced technology to date, built upon the success and innovation of the Siemens binax, the first hearing aid to outperform normal hearing in challenging noise situations. Signia primax provides wearers with better than normal hearing in challenging listening environments as well as clinically-proven reduced listening effort throughout the day.
A 2015 study from University of Northern Colorado performed speech testing with participants wearing primax hearing aids. Results showed that two features, SpeechMaster and EchoShield, revealed a significant reduction in listening effort, providing a natural and easy listening experience for primax wearers.
SpeechMaster provides wearers with the flexibility to focus on the sounds they want to hear, while reducing background noise that would otherwise be distracting. Additionally, it eliminates challenges with speech recognition in the wearer’s listening experience, achieved by balancing three technologies: noise reduction, directionality, and steering amplification to focus on the dominant sounds the wearer wants to hear. Along with the SoundSmoothing feature, sharper, louder sounds are softened.
EchoShield protects sounds, eliminates reverberations, and reduces listening efforts in difficult acoustic spaces, such as atriums, hallways, lecture halls, and places of worship. Signia Silk primax hearing aids are equipped with this feature, to eliminate the annoying mix of degraded sound that wearers may experience in difficult spaces. With improved speech recognition and rich, true-to-life sound, primax wearers experience an effortless hearing experience.
