Dynamic Soundscape Processing 2.0

●●●●● ●●●●● ●●●●●
Dynamic Soundscape Processing takes sound processing to a more precise level by including motion data for a more realistic sound adapted to everyday life.

Augmented Focus™

checked checked checked
Separates the focus sound (speech) from surroundings, creating a clear contrast between the two, which makes it easier to follow conversations.

Acoustic Sensors

checked checked checked
The redesigned acoustic sensors can detect more variables of sound than ever before, providing more accurate information about the environment.

e2e 4.0

checked checked checked
Control coupling, synchronization, binaural directionality, eWindcreen binaural, Spatial Speech Focus, CROS/ BiCROS.

Motion Sensor

checked checked checked
An integrated motion sensor detects whether the wearer is walking, running or sitting still. This motion data complements the acoustic data to optimize Dynamic Soundscape Processing 2.0.

OVP™ (Own Voice Processing)1

checked checked checked
Own Voice Processing (OVP™) utilizes real-time recognition of the wearer’s voice to deliver a natural own-voice impression. Available for RIC/BTE devices with e2e wireless in binaural fittings.

Sound Clarity

●●●●● ●●●● ●●●
Sound Clarity provides lifelike sound which covers the full spectrum of wearing situations.

Signal processing / Gain & MPO

Dedicated program for reverberant environments.

Speech Quality

●●●●● ●●●● ●●●
Speech Quality delivers improved speech understanding and communication ease in noise.

Binaural Directionality

checked checked checked
Directionality provides scientifically proven enhanced speech understanding in noise. Available for bilateral fittings with directional microphones and e2e wireless link.

Wireless CROS/BiCROS

checked checked checked
Requires CROS transmitters.

Frequency compression

checked checked checked
Improves the detection of speech sounds for wearers with reduced high frequency hearing thresholds. Frequency compression is selectively activated based on audiological criteria.

Spatial SpeechFocus

2)

Depending on the direction of the dominant speech source, Spatial SpeechFocus steers the directional beam to the left, right, or behind the wearer automatically in a car situation, or in a dedicated "Strolling" program.
Available for bilateral fittings with directional microphones and e2e wireless link.

Wearer Interaction

●●●●● ●●●●● ●●●●●
Technically inclined wearers may appreciate having extra control over their hearing aids. Signia Augmented Xperience hearing aids offer these wearers a comprehensive range of adjustment options via the Signia App.

Signia Assistant1

checked checked checked
Signia Assistant offers wearers instant 24/7 support and troubleshooting around the clock. It provides detailed information in Connexx to address each client’s fine-tuning needs more precisely.

Signia app (iOS and Android)

checked checked checked
The new Signia app combines all functionalities of previous apps (touchControl, myControl, myHearing app). The functionality offered in the app is automatically customized depending on the connected hearing aid.

Adaptive Streaming Volume

checked checked checked
Speech intelligibility weighted adaptation of the streaming volume depending on ambient noise.

Spatial Configurator

checked checked
Spatial Configurator is part of the Signia app and allows the wearer to adjust the direction of the microphone beam.

Direct streaming for iOS

checked checked checked
Signia Augmented Xperience hearing aids can be connected directly to Apple devices for phone calls and audio streaming – without additional accessories.

Direct streaming for Android

checked checked checked
Direct audio streaming from ASHA compatible Android devices to Bluetooth enabled Augmented Xperience hearing aids.

StreamLine TV accessory

checked checked checked
Stream high quality stereo sound directly from a TV to Bluetooth equipped Augmented Xperience hearing aids.

StreamLine Mic accessory

checked checked checked
Stream high quality stereo sound directly from any Bluetooth device (Android devices, older Apple devices, other smartphones, PCs, laptops, etc.) to Bluetooth equipped Augmented Xperience hearing aids.

Tinnitus

checked checked checked
A choice of tinnitus treatments based on amplified notch therapy or traditional noise therapy signals. It is even possible to combine the two approaches.

Notched Amplification Therapy

checked checked checked
Innovative tinnitus therapy delivered via everyday amplification.

Smart Optimizer and Data Logging

checked checked checked
Smart Optimizer (found under Data Logging) provides tailored fine-tuning recommendations based on an analysis of the wearer's usage of the hearing aid.

Acclimatization manager

checked checked checked
Allows the wearer to benefit from enhanced audibility in the longer term, while enjoying optimal device acceptance when initially fitted.

InSituGram

checked checked checked
Allows quick and convenient screening audiograms and checking of thresholds while the hearing aids are worn.

AutoFit

checked checked checked
Automatically provides an optimized real-ear insertion gain (REIG) setting without the need to manually match targets. The new IMC2 standard expands the range of REM equipment which supports AutoFit with Connexx and Noah 4.5.1 or higher.

TeleCare
