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.
Upgraded Feature: Auto EchoSheild
Auto EchoShield analyses the room acoustics and automatically adjusts signal processing to optimise speech clarity and signal quality in high and low reverberation environments.
Auto EchoSheild is only available at the premium 7AX performance level.
Rechargeable Signia AX
With Signia AX you never have to worry about changing batteries again. Styletto AX is available as a rechargeable hearing aid. Styletto AX only takes 3 hours to achieve full charge which then delivers 17 hours of use (including up to 5 hours of Bluetooth streaming).
The pocket size charging case is enabled with Qi wireless technology enabling you to charge your hearing aids via a charging pad. Wherever you go, the Styletto AX goes with you. Furthermore the charger has an in-built battery allowing 4 days of charging your hearing aids without power.
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 feature was recently further enhanced with OVP 2.0 which harnesses the split processing technology of the AX platform for an even more comfortable own voice experience.
OVP 2.0 is available in all technology levels for the Styletto AX
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: 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.
New Feature: HandsFree for iOS lets wearers enjoy calls hands-free, even in noisy environments while the hearing aid’s microphone lets conversation partners hear the wearer’s voice in high quality.
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
