Hearing Aid Description & Features
Unlike the generic instant-fit amplifiers you have probably seen in TV ads, Silk 5 X are the real deal - advanced hearing aids with high-end features, engineered by one of the world's leading hearing technology companies.
Released by Signia on July 13, 2020, the Signia Silk 5 X falls under Signia`s advanced technology level within the Silk family.
As advanced technology, this hearing aid is the second best technology that Signia has to offer, making it a great choice for individuals with casual lifestyles, who need hearing aids that can deliver great sound quality in almost all environments. For individuals who spend a significant amount of time in noisy environments, a higher technology level should be considered for better perfomance in noise.
The Signia Silk 5 hearing aid has 32 channels and 6 customizable programs, and that gives it the flexibility to digitally process sound in a way that sounds natural, and can also be adapted to the particular listening environment of the wearer.
The Silk 5 is powered by a size 10 battery which will need to be changed every 3-5 days. With a maximum potential gain of 65 SPL, the Silk 5 is suitable for individuals with mild to severe hearing loss.
With its discreet style, the Silk 5 sits hidden in the ear canal for a nearly invisible (and sometimes completely invisible) fit. This hearing aid is available in 2 color choices as shown below.

I purchased the Signia Silk 5nx hearing aids. I chose them as they sit completely and comfortable in the ear canal. And with the black face plate, it is almost impossible for people to see them in the ear - even those that know I am wearing them. I needed hearing aids to enhance the higher frequencies that I had lost over the years. They provide for crisp speech and have really helped with that. Because these hearing aids are not form-fitted from an ear impression, there is not a complete seal in the ear canal, which results in no occlusion effect. I also use the 8 mm open-style click sleeves which further allows the natural lower and mid frequencies to enter my ear, along with what comes through the hearing aids. So far, I am very happy with these hearing aids!
Generally like the Silk 5Nx hearing aids. Sound much better than my old behind the ear pair, although my own voice doesn't sound the same. Same with outside sounds if they are turned low/off. Old pair had large openings for natural sound.My wife asks me to raise the TV volume now. (Especially in TV mode)Getting used to adjusting volume and programs using the app is easy although I liked the old way better with just the physical buttons. Can't tell I have them in. Good for younger people like me. (47, wearing hearing aids since 42-43 years old)
The following were the issues I had with the signia silk 5NX hearing aids:1) Exaggerates the sound of everything: paper, water, walking, breathing, etc2) Still had to work hard to hear in some settings and voices, especially noisy environments3) Seems to amplify everything, not just the high frequencies4) I golf a lot and when I hit the ball I heard no sound at all - In golf you need feedback5) I talk louder without knowing it6) Amplifies TV but still at times have to work to understand what is being said.
I have had 2 previous hearing aids and have been using Silk Nx-5's for 15 days. To date the sound quality is very good, both are comfortable and trouble free. Pros: More comfortable then my previous hearing aids. Much less tendency to get clogged with ear wax. No annoying feedback at any time. "Tuning" by my Hearing Specialist has already made my Nx-5's far superior to my previous units. Ability to adjust by I phone is very useful. Zip representative very helpful. Cons: Zinc air batteries only last 3 days and are a pain, rechargeables are easier to live with, but Zip provides a years worth which helps. Still need closed caps. for most TV programs, maybe more "tuning" will help.And my wife seems to be "mumbling" less!
Sound quality is good. Very comfortable for being non molded to your own ear. Too much background noise that is not filtered. Price is normal. Love the completely in canal, but still comfortable. 7 day battery is a little annoying but okay. Just needs better filtering. i would recommend but not highly recommend. I can hear the tv much better(good), I hear my wife much better(bad)
I received my sign is silk nx hearing aids one week ago. The hearing quality at this point is good, but , it’s still early in getting accustomed to hearing things I hadn’ t been hearing for several years! Also, with further scheduled adjustment I am expecting further improvement. The product itself is comfortable, but as I said an adjustment needed to be made by myself in my hearing, it will also take an adjustment in having something in my ears that wasn’t there before! Overall, to this point, I’m happy with the improvement they have made.
