Sivantos announced its latest innovation: Styletto Connect from Signia. Built upon Signia’s SLIM-RIC form factor and Signia Nx technology platform, Styletto Connect is said to combine “exceptional design with high-quality connectivity to the wearer’s smartphone” to be able to stream calls, music, and TV via Bluetooth, plus portable rechargeability.
Styletto Connect comes with a pocket-sized portable charging case that powers a full day’s worth of wearing1 with five hours of streaming on a single charge. A 30-minute fast charge adds five hours of use, or three hours of streaming, for flexibility on the move. Fully loaded, the charging case is said to deliver four days of user autonomy, free from plugs or cables. Reportedly three times smaller and half the weight of other chargers with a built-in power cell, it is easy to fit in the wearer’s pocket and carry with them.
Styletto Connect is available in the performance levels 7, 5, and 3 and includes remote-control options via the Signia myControl app. The new hearing aid is IP 68 rated and available in three color combinations: Black / Silver, Cosmic Blue / Rose Gold, and Snow White / Rose Gold.
Leading the way in rechargeability
Signia’s latest premium hearing aid forms part of the Li-ion hearing aid portfolio, covering SLIM-RIC, RIC, BTE, and CROS devices2 as well as all performance levels. This means that hearing care professionals (HCPs) can help meet the needs of experienced hearing aid users as well as younger and first-time wearers looking for stylish all-around hearwear.
Eric Timm, CEO of Sivantos, said: “Sivantos aims to create hearing solutions that don’t just help people hear better, but also help them live life to the fullest. Our Styletto Connect delivers on this goal by offering high-tech hearing aids that combine cutting-edge style and direct streaming with on-the-go charging. The Signia brand offers hearing care professionals the greatest choice of Li-ion rechargeable hearing aids so their patients can benefit from market-leading sound performance, stylish design, and the utmost convenience.”
The entire Signia Li-ion portfolio is built on the Signia Nx platform, which includes Ultra HD e2e with Narrow Directionality for speech understanding in noise. It also has the “world’s first Own Voice Processing (OVP™)” feature for a more natural sounding own voice and higher user acceptance. All hearing aids offer Signia TeleCare™, the remote support and fine-tuning software that keeps HCPs connected to their clients. It enables them to offer advice and remote tuning via the wearer’s myHearing™ smartphone app in between appointments to help ensure a smooth and successful trial period and continued customer loyalty.
