Signia will launch its latest platform; Augmented Xperience (AX), worldwide on 4 May 2021. This launch includes three new hearing aids equipped with various new technological features and capabilities. In this article we will tell you more about the possibilities of this new platform, the hearing aids and the features.
The new technical features are incorporated into the AX chip. With the technology, Signia aims to solve the biggest problem of hearing impaired people; preventing too many sounds from blending together during challenging listening situations. The technology solves this problem using three independent sound processors;
The Soundscape Analysis is one of three independent sound processors used in the hearing aid. The processor provides contrast amplification of speech signals. The Soundscape Analysis in the hearing aid ensures that the sound comes in in two parts, via two 48-channel input amplifiers. The first platform has two independent input amplifiers. These amplifiers increase the contrast of sounds around the wearer, keeping the focus on the conversation and staying there.
The Augmented Focus is the second independent sound processor in the hearing aid. This processor focuses on perception of the environment. It provides support to the wearer in the way the brain works (Augmented Reality). It also reduces listening effort and provides crystal-clear speech. Ambient noise is reduced to the background, making the wearer fully aware of the sounds around them.
The third sound processor in the hearing aid focuses on the separate processing of one's own voice. Together, the three processors ensure that speech and ambient sound are completely separated and later mixed again. This creates a contrast between speech and ambient noise without compromising either.
Signia Pure Charge&Go AX
The Signia Pure Charge&Go AX hearing aids are the first hearing aids to use the Augmented Xperience (AX) platform. The hearing aids are available in three tech-levels: 3, 5 and 7. Tech level 7 is considered the premium model. There is also a variant with loop; Signia Pure Charge&Go T AX. The devices come in a completely new look. The design is 5% slimmer at the top and a total of 4% smaller than its predecessor (Signia Pure Charge&Go X). The device features a renewed feedback suppression, an increased Dynamic Input Range (receiving sounds up to 117dB), TrueEar 360˚ (perception of almost all sounds around the wearer, through Augmented Reality), streaming for both Apple iPhone and Android users and the use of the Signia Assistant.
The rechargeable lithium-ion battery in the Charge&Go AX lasts 24 hours, including 5 hours of streaming. The Charge&Go T AX has a battery capacity of 36 hours, including 5 hours of streaming. The battery is fully charged within 4 hours. A quick 30-minute charge will last 4 hours with streaming and 6 hours without. The Charge&Go AX hearing aids come with their own charger, but can also be expanded with other chargers, such as for travelling or a charger that cleans, dries and charges the hearing aid at the same time (available at the end of May).
The hearing aids are compatible with existing Signia hearing aids such as the StreamLine Mic, StreamLine TV and the MiniPocket.
Signia CROS Pure Charge&Go AX
Signia is also introducing a new CROS hearing aid that operates on the latest AX platform. The CROS hearing aid is compatible with the Charge&Go AX and Charge&Go T AX. The hearing aid has 20% more battery capacity than its predecessor (29 hours). The new AX chip provides improved audio quality, faster performance and 30% less delay.
