The new Signia primax hearing aids look very similar to the Siemens binax family of hearing aids, and are relatively similar in terms of technology. Here is a list of notable improvements:
SpeechMaster: More than a single feature or innovation, SpeechMaster is a collection of algorithms that work in concert to require less listening effort. SpeechMaster analyzes the acoustic environment and employs the first technology that is clinically proven to isolate the target speaker from unwanted surrounding noise and other speech. SpeechMaster acts as a conductor orchestrating digital noise reduction, directionality, and amplification to reduce listening effort. This is achieved by reducing noise and highlighting the dominant speaker’s voice in all speech environments throughout the day.
HD Music: Beyond the universal program, which enhances higher frequencies with its 12 kHz extended bandwidth, the wearer can experience richer, fuller sound and outstanding music quality at a concert, listening to music from a sound system, or while performing music through the dedicated HD music program. The perfect program to maximize enjoyment for music lovers and musicians.
EchoShield softens reflected sound for better sound quality and reduced listening effort in places where there is high reverberation – atriums, hallways, lecture halls, and places of worship.
TwinPhone: Sixty percent of mobile phone users hold their phones to their ear, even when there is a hands-free option. TwinPhone is the optimal solution for these wearers. It is automatically activated by a magnetic signal, so the wearer hears the caller in both ears for better understanding.
