Question

Are CROS/BiCROS options available with the new Signia primax hearing instruments?

Answer

Yes, Signia is now offering CROS/BiCROS solutions for wearers who have an unaidable hearing loss in one ear. This is made possible by the new CROS Pure transmitter, which is worn behind the unaidable ear.  When it detects sound, the transmitter processes and transmits it to the primax hearing aid on the other side, allowing the wearer to hear sounds from both sides.  As you probably know, the CROS solution is for patients who have an unaidable hearing loss in one ear and normal hearing in the other.  On the other hand, the BiCROS solution is for those patients who have an unaidable hearing loss in one ear and a significant, but still aidable hearing loss in the other.

The CROS Pure is compatible with all wireless-enabled primax hearing aids, from RICs to BTEs to even Insio customs. The CROS Pure works via e2e wireless™ 3.0 with its industry benchmark for low battery consumption, so you know our CROS solutions are going to be very energy efficient.
