Piscataway, NJ, March 2, 2018 – Audiology technology leader Signia today announced the launch of its latest innovative hearing aids, Pure Charge&Go Nx. Combining wireless rechargeability through lithium-ion batteries and the most natural sound quality due to unique dual processing of the soundscape and wearer’s own voice—new Pure Charge&Go hearing aids provide exceptional convenience and a high level of new patient acceptance.
Today’s hearing aid wearers want it all—convenience, discretion, and crystal-clear sound. The new Signia hearing aid Pure Charge&Go delivers on each of these consumer demands as it is the first-ever Bluetooth®* enabled, rechargeable hearing aid that provides a natural sounding own voice.
Pure® Charge&Go hearing aids feature Signia’s unique Own Voice Processing (OVP™), for a natural-sounding own voice
Inductive rechargeability removes the need to purchase and handle disposable batteries, creating a high level of convenience
Bluetooth® connectivity enables audio streaming directly into hearing aids for an extended period with low energy drain supported by a high-capacity lithium-ion power cell
Leverage the world’s first Own Voice Processing
Pure Charge&Go hearing aids are built upon Signia’s proprietary Own Voice Processing (OVP), released in 2017 as part of its groundbreaking Signia Nx technology platform. OVP solves the challenge facing many new hearing aid wearers: their own voice can sound unnatural, which often leads to abandonment of hearing devices. Signia’s leading Ultra HD e2e™ binaural link identifies the wearer’s voice and processes it separately from other sounds and voices. Meanwhile, binaural beamforming technology enables clear speech understanding even in noisy situations. The result is a natural-sounding own voice for wearers and an 80 percent spontaneous acceptance rate**.
Recharging made easy
In addition to solving the own voice issue, Pure Charge&Go provides a solution to another common challenge for hearing aid wearers—changing batteries. With a lithium-ion power cell and an inductive charger, patients avoid the hassle of having to change batteries and purchase new ones typically for the life of the devices.
Instead, wearers simply place their hearing aids in the charger at night, and through integrated wireless charging, their hearing aids will charge correctly every time and remain charged all day. The advanced lithium-ion cell technology used in Pure Charge&Go lasts significantly longer than traditional zinc-based rechargeable batteries, even after multiple years of use. Moreover, as there is no need to change batteries, there are fewer moving parts and openings, thereby minimizing the chance of breakage.
Along with a natural own voice and easy recharging, Pure Charge&Go’s high-capacity power cell allows for enhanced Bluetooth connectivity. This enables wearers to enjoy high-quality, long-lasting stereo streaming of TV audio, music, and phone calls directly to both hearing aids. Wearers can even stream up to five hours per day and still benefit from 17 hours of battery cell run time before needing to recharge, or 19 hours of run time without streaming.
Signia Pure Charge&Go hearing aids include many additional features to enhance the wearer’s listening experience. These include access to Signia’s myControl™ App, which enables them to change settings and personalize their hearing aids directly from their smartphones, and the myHearing™ App, providing the support, exercises, and user guides to get the most out of their hearing aids. Wearers also benefit from TeleCare™, which enables them to schedule remote consultations with their hearing care professional, who can adjust their settings remotely for greater convenience.
