Siemens is a very well-known German brand who have a reputation for quality in all electronic devices, ranging from devices such as washing machines and hi fi systems. They have more recently changed their name to Signia hearing solutions.
The founder of Siemens, Werner Von Siemens was focused on improving communication with the hearing impaired as early as 1878. He invented a telephone in the same year that would help the hearing impaired hear better. The company began to work specifically on developing hearing aids in 1911.
We were in fact, one of the few clinics in Australia asked to participate in evaluating one of Siemen’s original premium hearing aid called Binax, as we are very independent and not aligned to a single manufacturer. We are also very honest and take the time to evaluate hearing aid trials very thoroughly, allowing our patients to truly test them out in the real world. We gave feedback directly to the manufacturer about fitting the product and our patient’s opinions.
Since then Signia products have developed strength to strength.
The Signia NX is the latest product and gives the first genuine solution to people hearing their own voice through a hearing aid using Own Voice Processing technology. This improves the sound of your voice so it is clear and natural.
To do this, it uses something called a binaural link. This lets the hearing aid scan and then process the wearers’ voice completely separate to all other sounds, even those of other people. This means a more natural hearing experience even in incredibly noisy places.
For crystal clear sound, they have an extended dynamic range of hearing algorithms built into the microchip. This new technology allows better localisation of sound and knowing where it is coming from, no annoying whistling sounds, and super clear sound especially for music.
Another very exciting development from our view is Telecare 3.0. This means you, the patient can contact us through an app and we can fine tune and adjust your hearing aids to help you hear better without even needing to come into the clinic.
Signia has a few apps which can work with device as well as a Made for iPhone hearing aid. The apps include The myHearing, Easytek, Touchcontrol, Signia Easytek and myControl. The apps provides volume control adjustment, program changes and information about battery life. You can also link in with the TV.
Signia also offer a rechargeable option. The Cellion Primax aid uses the latest in Lithium Ion technology allowing you to simply take your hearing aids off your ear, place them in the charging unit and in the morning put them straight in. No need to change batteries or even turn them on and off. A 3 hour charge provides 24 hours of wear so is a fantastic solution for those with dexterity problems or the environmentally conscious client.
Signia hearing aids are very reliable and we often fit their products.
Signia are also one of the only hearing aid manufacturers who have not purchased or own retail clinics in Australia. They mainly supply independent clinics like ours, and Australian Hearing.

I am writing to say how pleased I have been with the service you have provided. I had worn hearing aids for more than a decade and the pair that I was wearing had reached their limit of usefulness. So in May this year, I decided to consult with Hearing Sense.
Three things were a standout with Hearing Sense. First was the pleasant and professional way I was treated by the staff. I was never kept waiting for a consultation and I have always been helped on subsequent visits either to you or reception.
Your use of animated videos at the time of testing was really educational and explained how we hear and how hearing aids work. The educational program and advice you gave has made a big difference to the way I use them and their effectiveness.
Finally, the Signia hearing aids themselves are most successful. You were able to recommend just the right pair for my needs and my budget. You have chosen settings and adjustments that seem to work well in all situations and I know that if my hearing requirements changed you would respond with further changes. I now wear my hearing aids all day and am very happy with them.
I will undoubtable continue to use your services and will have no hesitation in recommending you and Hearing Sense to my friends.”
