Sivantos Hearing Aids
When Werner von Siemens, a manufacturer of telegraphic instruments, built a telephone with a horseshoe magnet that amplified voice signals to improve the device’s voice clarity, laying the foundation for Sivantos hearing instruments.
Acquired by Sivantos, the first Siemens hearing devices included the Phonophor, sold before World War II, the Auriculette hearing aid in 1959, a behind-the-ear (BTE) device made with small lightweight components in a single unit, and the Siretta 339, the first device worn entirely in-the-ear (ITE), allowing Sivantos to capture European, North American, and Asian markets.
Signia hearing aids using Siemens’ technology, such as Binax, accelerated the development of smart products and applications with practical benefits for people with hearing loss. Sivantos’ merger with Widex in 2019 gave birth to WS Audiology, establishing a large-scale manufacturer of a variety of hearing instruments under various brand names.
Advanced Hearing Solutions from Sivantos
E2e wireless technology is the secret behind the performance quality of Binax, which simulates binaural hearing through the use of an eight microphone network (four per hearing aid), designed to share and balance audio data between instruments. Narrow Directionality, Spatial Speech Focus, eWindScreen binaural, and High Definition Sound Resolution are other features capable of enhancing the clarity of your sound experience.
Various RIC, CIC, and BTE devices operating on the OVP platform with instant fit and custom formed options that include Bluetooth streaming are available in all of the lines of hearing aids produced by Sivantos, including specialized devices for individuals with one-sided hearing loss.
Signia’s TeleCare app, accessed using your Smartphone, makes it possible for you to stay up-to-date with your hearing care provider for ongoing counseling and support without the necessity of an in-office consultation.
