Signia AX hearing aids represents the latest hearing aid technology from Signia (previously Siemens Hearing Instruments).
AX stands for ‘Augmented Xperience’ and changes the way you hear the world. The new platform uses proprietary Augmented Focus™ technology which enables the system to process speech and background noise (from beside and behind) separately to create a clear contrast.

Signia AX: Key Features
Traditionally, hearing aids have used a single processor to process all sounds, no matter what those sounds were and which direction they were coming from. In doing so, certain computing decisions and compromises were made, resulting in a less than optimum outcome.
With Augmented Xperience, two separate processors can independently process sounds depending on where they are coming from. One processor can focus and optimise sounds which are important ie speech coming from in front of the wearer. While the other processor is free to control and where necessary reduce the background sounds, whilst maintaining a level of awareness of the environment.
Rechargeable Signia AX
With Signia AX you never have to worry about changing batteries again. AX is available as a rechargeable hearing aid. AX only takes 3 hours to achieve full charge which then delivers 24 hours of use (including up to 5 hours of streaming).
There are three (3) choices of chargers available: the Pure Desktop charger which is the supplied charger with any Signia AX hearing aid, the Pure Portable charger, which allows for up to 3 recharges without having to access power, and the Pure Dry&Clean charger which not only charges the hearing aids overnight but will also provide ultra-violet cleaning and dehumidifying to keep your hearing aids in pristine condition.
Signia AX: Own Voice Processing
OVP™ provides the most natural sounding own voice experience. Signia AX hearing aids are able to identify the wearer’s own voice separately to other voices in the environment via its revolutionary dual processing.
This allows the clinician to fine-tune the hearing aids for optimal audibility of the entire acoustic environment without having to compromise the sound quality of the wearer’s own voice.
Signia AX: Increased Dynamic Range
The new Signia AX hearing aids have an improved dynamic range which refers to the level (volume) of sound they can replicate before any distortion of the original sound. Signia AX can handle signals up to 117dB with great sound quality.
This allows for excellent, full sound quality with no distortion in loud environments such as noisy restaurants or at music concerts.
Signia AX: TruEar 360
With the significantly improved processing power in the Signia AX hearing aids, the all new TruEar 360 mic mode accurately reproduces and emphasises the effects of the natural pinna (outer ear) better than ever. TruEar 360 highlights the difference between front and back sources of sound to make localisation of sound sources easier.
Signia AX: Direct streaming for iOS and Android
Signia AX offers direct streaming of audio for both iOS and ASHA-compatible Android smartphones. AX delivers the signal of a streaming input independently from other signals, ensuring that the sound is even clearer and easier to optimise. Your clinician can adjust the sound quality of the streamed audio signal to your individual preferences.
Wirelessly listen to music, podcasts or any videoconference from your Smartphone at the touch of a button.
Signia AX CROS
Signia AX is available in a fully featured, rechargeable CROS system for those with Single-Sided Deafness (SSD).
With some manufacturers of CROS systems we have to compromise on certain features eg rechargeability, adjustable sound balance between the CROS side and hearing side or Bluetooth streaming. However, with Signia AX all features are available in their CROS system which is why it is Focus Hearing’s go-to CROS system.
With the new Signia app, you can make adjustments to your Signia AX hearing aids, and receive direct individual support from your clinician.
The Signia app integrates all the functionalities of the previous apps, including connectivity, remote control, the Signia Assistant and TeleCare into one simple to use app.
A new feature for Signia AX hearing aids is the Signia Assistant which provides supports 24/7 in the form of intuitive text-based dialogue. Easy to learn, it offers tailored sound adjustments when needed and how-to videos to answers handling questions.
Signia AX hearing aid wearers can contact their hearing care professional any time remotely from the comfort of their own home via the Signia app.
With TeleCare you can have any issues solved quickly by making adjustments remotely. TeleCare also allows you to communicate live via voice or video during the remote session
