Would you provide an overview of the Signia primax hearing aid family?
This spring, Signia, the new hearing aid brand from Sivantos, introduced primax™, the company’s most advanced hearing aid platform to date. Signia primax is the world’s first technology clinically proven by independent studies to reduce listening effort throughout the day while providing better than normal hearing in challenging listening environments like busy restaurants and cocktail party settings.* Signia primax builds on the successful binax platform by providing a true binaural experience that redefines ease of listening.
primax is offered in all three performance levels. These include Pure®, Ace™, Motion® and Insio™ custom hearing aids in 7px, 5px, and 3px performance levels.
Pure is our best-selling RIC instruments, and it’s easy to understand why. It is fully-featured with all that the primax platform has to offer, yet it is still very small and discreet. With different receivers, it allows wearers with practically all levels of hearing loss to hear effortlessly. IP67-rated† and rechargeable, it features tinnitus therapy and telecoil, and offers CROS/BiCROS in all performance levels. Its industry- benchmark directional microphone technology delivers outstanding binaural performance, while easyTek™ and the easyTek™ App extend its functionality for greater convenience and connectivity.
Ace is ideal for first-time wearers and those who demand the utmost in discretion. Ace primax is the smallest in the Signia range of RIC hearing instruments. Wearers can adjust Ace conveniently and discreetly from their smartphone with the touchControl™ App, with no intermediary device required.
In terms of BTEs, our Motion primax line is fully-featured and hassle free. Available in a wide variety of fitting ranges, there’s a model to suit up to moderately severe hearing losses. The Motion SX primax model has a rechargeable battery, while the SA model can be equipped with an optional battery compartment for direct audio input via an integrated audio shoe. Both are wireless and offer CROS/BiCROS in all performance levels.
Our Insio custom primax hearing aids are tailor-made for demanding wearers who want the ultimate in discretion and performance. Almost unnoticeable in the ear, the new Insio primax models ensure complete comfort and even the tiniest IICs can be controlled remotely via the touchControl App. Thanks to the binaural OneMic directionality function, we’re the only manufacturer who can offer advanced automatic, adaptive directionality for even CIC wearers. Insio also offers CROS/BiCROS in all performance levels. And, with our iScan II, you can quickly scan ear impressions for ITE instruments and send the 3D scan immediately for accurate and fast turnaround. Thank you for your interest in primax!
