Signia calls Pure Nx hearing aids the "smallest solution for a natural sounding own voice and direct streaming". This refers to the version with size-312 batteries. The hearing aids are also available with size-13 batteries for the longest streaming time in class. These fully-featured RIC-style hearing aids feature a raft of sophisticated sound processing technologies, including Signia's unique OVP (Own Voice Processing). If you have worn hearing aids before and had to compromise between setting the volume loud enough to hear other people's voices yet soft enough to keep your own voice sounding natural, you will probably appreciate OVP. It uses real-time recognition of your voice to process it separate from other sounds and voices. In other words, the hearing aids treat your own voice in a distinctly different way, as if you had two separate hearing aids - one for your own voice, and one for other voices. No compromises needed!
Pure Nx hearing aids are made for iPhone, meaning they can stream music and calls directly from Apple devices without the use of additional accessories. For streaming from Android devices, you will need the StreamLine Mic (which is also compatible with Apple devices). It’s small, easy-to-use, and is useful with or without a smartphone, because it functions as a remote microphone for meetings or lectures where you need to hear from across the room. Of course, there is nothing wrong with using your phone the old-fashioned way – by holding it up to your ear. If that is your style, Pure Nx is still a great choice, because the full-bandwidth link between the two hearing aids transmits the phone signal wirelessly from one hearing aid to the other.
Signia’s myControl app lets you discreetly and conveniently control your hearing aids from the palm of your hand with compatible Apple or Android devices. You can use it to control more than just the basics, such as left and right hearing aid volume. For example, the app lets you adjust the hearing aids' sophisticated directional microphones for improved hearing in background noise. Hearing aids with directional microphones usually focus in front of the listener to reduce interference from background noise coming from other directions. This is fine most of the time, because people tend to look at each other when they talk - but not always. What if the sound you want to hear is not right in front of you? Some advanced digital hearing aids, including Pure Nx, automatically shift the direction of focus to follow voices as the people around you move. But Signia has taken things a step further by letting you manually "steer" the microphone response in any direction, including behind you. If you're wondering how this could be useful, just think about having a conversation while driving your car. You can tell these hearing aids to “look” toward the passenger side or rear of the vehicle while you keep your eyes on the road.
We mentioned earlier that Signia has introduced a new emphasis on personalized care. One example that shows in Pure Nx is how your hearing care provider can adjust them remotely, saving you the inconvenience of returning to the office for fine tuning. You can send feedback to the provider, ask for assistance by video chat, and even request minor adjustments remotely - all from the myHearing app.
- You want to experience superb sound quality, industry-leading noise reduction, made-for-iPhone Bluetooth connectivity, and fully automatic hearing that adjusts based on where you go as well as the sounds around you.
- Other hearing aids make your own voice too loud – and it drives you crazy.
- You would rather have your hearing aids adjusted where you actually wear them than only in your hearing care provider’s office.
