- Mask Mode: If you asked me 11 months ago what I considered a favorite hearing aid feature, mask mode wouldn’t have been on my list. But with the recent pandemic, mask-wearing is our norm, and it makes it hard for many of us––especially those with hearing loss––to communicate. People suffering from hearing loss rely on lip-reading and cued speech to understand what people are saying and Signia’s mask mode allows hearing aid wearers to better understand what people are saying while wearing their masks. The mask mode is available in the Signia app underneath the Universal hearing program. When it’s on mask mode, the app captures the sound of speech signals, reducing background noise and allowing for words to sound clearer.
- Rechargeable Batteries: Many Signia hearing aids have long-lasting rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion technology is commonly found in portable electronic devices and right now is considered the best rechargeable battery in the hearing aid industry. Signia hearing aids stay charged for 19 hours with daily use. It takes about four hours to fully charge a Signia hearing aid and lithium-ion batteries typically last for about two to three years or 300 to 500 charge cycles, whichever comes first. This rechargeable technology means you don’t have to constantly pay for replaceable batteries or worry about running out of batteries at the wrong time.
- Own Voice Processing: The last thing someone who needs a hearing aid wants to hear is their own voice distorted. Unfortunately, many hearing aids on the market make the wearer’s voice sound unnatural. Not Signia’s. The company is the first in the world to replicate the natural sound of the wearer’s voice thanks to the company’s voice processing technology. This technology processes the wearer’s voice through a microphone independent from the sounds of nature and other people’s voices so your voice sounds natural and familiar.
- Best for Tinnitus:Tinnitus, the hearing of noise or ringing in the ears, is a common problem that affects about 20 percent of the population. Hearing aids with Tinnitus therapies can help negate the symptoms of this condition. Signia not only offers a setting to allow for background static noise like the ocean, which tends to help with this symptom; they also have a program called Notch Therapy. Notch Therapy is a way of treating Tinnitus, which helps the brain ignore the sounds so it fades into the background, and Signia is the only hearing aid that offers this type of therapy.
