Signia has been named a winner of the 2024 BIG Innovation Awards for its Signia Integrated Xperience (IX) hearing aid platform.

Signia’s IX platform is designed to provide unprecedented sound clarity and definition for wearers in noisy group conversations, even when the wearer or speakers are in motion, the company says.

The BIG Innovation Awards recognize organizations and products that deliver premium innovation across verticals, bringing new ideas to life that will improve the lives of users and businesses, according to a news release. The new Signia Integrated Xperience hearing aid platform was recognized in the Healthcare category. Past BIG Innovation Award winners include Citi Ventures, Walgreens Boots Alliance, Velcro, Bloomfire, and Colgate-Palmolive.

“The Signia Integrated Xperience platform is truly revolutionary in its ability to deliver maximum value and unparalleled hearing capabilities to all wearers, and it’s an honor to see that innovation recognized by such a prestigious award program,” says Mike O’Neil, president of Signia U.S. “Developing advanced hearing technology to best support hearing care professionals and their patients is at the core of Signia’s mission, and the Integrated Xperience platform does just that by pushing the boundaries of what hearing technology can do.”

Integrated Xperience features Signia’s RealTime Conversation Enhancement solution that analyzes, augments, and adapts to the dynamic flow of multi-party conversation environments. The technology works in three stages, allowing wearers to engage, interact, and participate in noisy group conversations regardless of location, movement, and noise level.

The Integrated Xperience platform is currently available in Signia’s Pure Charge&Go IX and Silk Charge&Go IX hearing aid models, offering a substantial improvement in conversational ability for patients. 

“The hearing aids built on Signia’s Integrated Xperience platform ultimately allow wearers to enjoy more meaningful lives with richer conversations,” says Nicholas Hort, VP of marketing for Signia U.S. “With Integrated Xperience, we’ve set a new industry standard for hearing aid technology, prioritizing socialization, engagement, and a level of hearing ability that was previously unattainable in noisy, busy scenarios.”
