Love at First Sound!
The Signia Nx is one of the latest hearing aids from Signia, the company which has taken over Siemens’ well-known range of audiological devices. Available in Behind-the-Ear and Receiver-in-Canal models, the Signia Nx is one of the most advanced hearing aids around. As the manufacturer states, it has been “designed for professionals,” meaning that it packs plenty of high-end features that make life easier for wearers. From settings which make the wearer’s own voice sound more natural and easier on the ear, to soundscape processing which makes it possible to pick out conversations in the noisiest, most complex environments, Signia has added a variety of functions which set this hearing aid apart from its competitors. Let’s look at them in a little more detail, and find out whether the Signia Nx is the hearing aid for you.
The same technology which underlies the Nx’s own voice processing abilities has been harnessed to detecting the voices of others. By using advanced beam detection sensors, the hearing aid can zero in on specific individuals, resulting in an exceptional degree of spatial awareness. So, when you are dining in a loud restaurant, or trying to understand a lively discussion at work, you can easily pick out specific sentences from individuals, instead of their words getting lost in the background. This directional capability is complemented by one of the most powerful signal qualities on the market.
The Signia Nx is able to handle an input of 113dB, making it suited to use even in loud settings, and it also has a broad dynamic range, which enhances its general sound quality. Both the own voice and directional abilities of the hearing aid are based around Signia’s path-breaking technology, which is as close as any hearing aid has yet come to mimicking the way that our ears detect and filter different elements. This precision one of the key reasons these hearing aids are marketed at “professionals.”
A User-Friendly, High Quality Hearing Aid
When all of these features are combined with Signia’s commitment to customer service, the result is a device that offers both advanced tech and ease of use. For instance, Nx users can access the Signia TeleCare service, which allows them to work with audiologists to fine tune their hearing aid and find exactly the correct setting for their personal needs. Instead of booking appointments and wasting time with clinical visits, audiologists can work remotely with patients – a much more efficient way to do things. However, as you might expect, the Signia Nx is not a budget hearing aid, retailing at a substantially higher price than other Signia models like the primax. Then again, for professionals who appreciate its features, the extra cost will be worth it.
