Every move makes a difference
Most of our daily activities involve motion and we carry conversations with us as we go.
For any hearing aid, adapting to dramatic shifts in location poses a tough challenge. The number of sound sources and the signal-to-noise ratio alter entirely and suddenly. Hearing can go from easy to nearly impossible in a matter of seconds as we move from relatively quiet places into a busy street or conference hall, for example.
The reason is that conventional hearing aids can only listen and make educated guesses as to the type of situation the wearer is in. All existing hearing aids choose between hearing what is directly in front of the wearer or hearing their general surroundings. Signia Xperience is the first hearing aid platform ever that doesn’t make that compromise. It can do both at the same time.
This allows the wearer to understand speech from any direction and in any situation – even when they are moving.
Giving hearing aids a new sense
Signia Xperience empowers hearing aid wearers to experience the same excellent level of hearing wherever they go. So they can hear what matters to be fully involved in life.
With its revolutionary YourSound technology, Signia Xperience delivers superior sound processing driven by our unique acoustic-motion sensors. It measures more aspects of sound than ever before – and, for the first time, how the wearer’s movement affects his or her hearing in every situation.
The world’s first acoustic-motion sensors
In a world’s first, a motion sensor is built into the hearing aids to provide crucial information about the wearer’s movement through his or her acoustic surroundings. Based on this data, the sound processing can be optimized to deliver sound as nature intended, whether running in the park or sitting in a meeting.
The next generation acoustic sensors deliver sound localization, own voice detection, signal-to-noise ratio, and much more. By collecting more information and characteristics about the hearing aid wearer’s acoustic environment, the soundscape comes to life far more precisely and in much greater detail.
This unique combination of advanced sound processing with an accurate image of how the wearer is moving through his or her acoustic environment ensures that the hearing aids know what is important at every moment so that wearers always hear what matters to them.
More than 90 percent of Xperience wearers report a natural sound experience while moving Signia Xperience wearers show statistically significant improvements in both speech understanding ability and listening effort with speech coming from the side while in motion and stationary, compared to current, premium technology.
Satisfaction with Xperience hearing aids in background noise exceeds 90%, which is substantially higher than corresponding values in recent MarkeTrak/EuroTrak surveys.
As a result, wearers are more likely to recommend Xperience hearing aids to a friend than comparable devices.
