Audiology technology company Signia announced its latest innovation, the new Silk Nx hearing aids. Re-engineered to be 20% smaller than its predecessor, these ready-to-wear, completely-in-canal (CIC) devices now include key features of Signia’s Nx hearing aid technology that are designed to deliver the most natural hearing experience.
With the new Silk Nx solutions, hearing aid wearers do not have to sacrifice size for performance in their hearing aids. Despite having designed the already small Silk hearing aids to be even tinier with this new release, they are also more powerful than ever. The result is what Signia calls a “discreet, instant-fit hearing solution with the highest level of sound quality.”
A practically invisible solution
Many hearing aid wearers, and especially those being fit for the first time, are insecure about others seeing their hearing aids. The Silk Nx were redesigned to be 20% smaller than previous models, according to Signia. As a result, they are designed for an improved fit rate and wearing comfort. They also feature darker faceplate colors that are designed to better blend into the ear canal and further decrease visibility.
Improved sound quality
Built upon Signia’s Nx technology platform, the new Silk is designed to provides wearers with the “most natural” hearing experience, according to the company. And Signia’s binaural beamforming technology is designed to allow clear speech understanding, even in noisy situations. Silk Nx hearing aids are also said to enable natural directionality and wireless streaming between both ears to make sure wearers hear what’s most important.
Silk hearing aids come ready-to-wear, with a secure fit for almost every ear. This is due to their super-soft and flexible silicone Click Sleeves, which are designed for a higher fit rate and are more durable than previous solutions.
More innovative features
The latest release also includes new features like TwinPhone, enabling wearers to put a phone up to one ear and hear the call through both hearing aids. They also represent what is said to be the “world’s first CIC solution” for single-sided deafness. With contralateral routing of signal (CROS) technology, Silk Nx hearing aids include wireless transmitters that transfer sound from the unaidable ear to the better ear, enabling the wearer to hear from both sides. Wearers also benefit from Signia’s apps, including the touchControl™ App and TeleCare™ 3.0, to provide greater control and convenience.
Are the rechargeable batteries able to be changed out. Or do you have to buy new hearing aides? How long do the rechargeable batteries last?
I have a non-rechargeable set, not easy to change batteries.
We struggle to push/click new sleeve on. Is there a special movement to make, instead of holding hearing aid wit one hand and slipping
on sleeve gently with other hand?
Does silk-nx have a CROS??
Is silk nx rechargeable or do you have to install batteries
They are not rechargeable.
How do I receive more information pertaining to these hearing aides. Is there a place in Memphis TN where these hearing aides are sold. What is the price range? Thanks, EMB
Question Wearers of Silk NX
Do they come with a Volume Remote Control?
Please tell me the cost and return policy.
I have just Purchased your Signia Silk Nx7 Hearing Aids & am thrilled by the sound & clarity, & the fact that they are so small & “invisible”. Yes, I am that vain & did not want them to show. I previously wore your “over the ear” Aids & they are not good for people like me who wear eye-glasses …they kept falling off my ears. I lost one, so this is why I purchased the CIC Silk Nx & am now a “happy camper”. Thanks so much Signia, keep up the good work & maybe in the future even more new ideas will again give us hard of hearing people more hope for something else newer again to help us hear as near to the real thing as possible.
I only have one good ear, my left and without my aid, a Siemens Pure, which is again in for a ‘service’, I am a mute. Will I be able to use my easyTek with a Silk Signia Nx if I was to purchase one?
Cannot locate the user’s manual. Where is the pdf? Also, the other comment is not answered about cost.
I bought my hearing aids (signia) 14 months ago. Not bad but far from perfect in my view.
How much will this new almost invisible aids for both ears cost me?
