I love the small size, I love the natural sound

Review by: Tim from KY
Model: Signia Silk X 5 CIC
Bought: Nov 2021

Hi, my name is Tim B. and I’m from Louisville, KY. I’m approximately 72 years old. About 5 years ago I received in the mail, as perhaps many of you do, a notification about free hearing tests that are available through local audiologists. I took advantage of that, went in and had a test and confirmed that yes my hearing was now at a moderate level, and also I had some concerns because I have tinnitus in my left ear. I tried one of their products, and about the only products they had available at that time were over the ear, which was not of interest to me at that time. And I thought well maybe in years to come the technology will get better. And what I found in September of this year was that it was in fact getting better. Again I received a notice on a card from Miracle Ear, went in and had a discussion with them and talked about their products. However they were very expensive, and I was quite concerned that the people were not able to address some of my questions and provide additional information about some of their products which I found on the internet. I then went to Oticon and although a better experience, the only thing that they could fit me in, or suggest to me, was what is referred to has a half-shell device and I thought well I’m still seeing a lot of information about better technology and smaller devices. Continuing my research I came across ZipHearing and I had a conversation with them and found out that yes in fact one of their key manufacturers, Signia, was known for making small products and putting a lot of technology in a small device. I likened it very much to how Sony used to do that with many of their electrical audio devices and players and so forth that they had through the years, kind of a specialist in miniaturization. I spoke further with the Zip people and found out that they had a couple of products that I was interested in. One was the Insio device, which is again, a half-shell type device that was gonna fit in my ear, but most interested also in a device they called Silk which fits very much inside the ear. After many conversations with them I was hooked up with an audiologist and I was able to actually try both products and I ended up with the Silk product, and let me share with you what that product looks like. You can see that it is very small and it fits inside my ear. One of the reasons I went with the Silk product is because my, the sound of my voice when I speak was much more normal and natural and they actually have a tip, a vented tip on the device that makes that sound of your own voice much easier and not as offensive as something that’s entirely blocking the ear. I love the small size, I love the natural sound and I found that the battery replacement which I do about every 3-4 days is not a real problem versus rechargeable units that were in the half shell. Some of my wishes would be that there was more options on their app to be able to adjust the various programs, perhaps in the future those features will be added, I think also as a customer being able to label those different programs that are set up by the audiologist would be a great help, right now they’re called Universal, Program 2, Program 3, Program 4. Allowing the customer on the app to be able to input the name of those programs for example Outdoors, Restaurant, Sporting Event, those types of things, certainly also I look to the future when perhaps maybe rechargeability, not having to use the batteries, and Bluetooth technology will be compact and be able to be put into the Silk device. I definitely recommend the Silk product, I look forward as a matter of fact to any new technology with the Silk product they make, and I’ve actually offered my name to the Signia people to be able to test any new products that they might come out with, late newer versions of the Silk product, perhaps with new features and functions and technology. There’s not a lot of information available on the internet that I could find when I was doing comparisons. One I did find that you may be interested in also is a site called HearingTracker.com, that was at least able to compare on a very high level, products from different manufacturers, again it’s at a very high level but it was the only independent site I seemed to be able to find. Overall, one other recommendation is certainly to find an audiologist that you’re comfortable with and will answer your questions. I found it interesting in that, the time I spent with the audiologist is probably more time than I spent with my GP in the last few years. Thank you very much.

The quality is very good

This is my second pair from Zip hearing, these were purchased as a back pair but because they are a newer upgraded version I am using these all if the time and keeping my others as a backup. The quality is very good on both versions, these are supposed to be a little better on background noise. I do use these every day and they have become a important part of my life.

Happy with my new hearing aids

The sound quality is great and they are so comfortable I hardly know they are in my ears. I am very pleased with the IITE Signia Silk and would recommend them to anyone who needs hearing aids.

I am extremely pleased

I opted for the Signia Silk X hearing aid after conducting extensive research on the available “CIC” brands and was fortunate enough to find Zip Hearing, who is an authorized distributor for most major brands. I am extremely pleased, not having used any devices prior, and I am now able to hear quite a bit better and picking up the high frequency sounds that I was missing before. These can be programmed to your needs and are extremely comfortable. I decided I had no risk as Zip provides 45 day return policy if you are not satisfied. I would highly recommend Zip as they have ( at least I have found) qualified affiliates throughout, who will provide an audiology test and let you know if you are a candidate for these “Completely In Canal” devices and will continue to service them when needed. The entire experience was excellent. No BS and no high pressure. Reasonably priced for the technology. The best thing is that you do not need a special molded ear piece.

Impressed with the sound quality

I am so impressed with the sound and clarity of my new Signia Silk hearing aids. The aids fit directly in my ear canal, so they are totally invisible to all.
I hear much better in loud environments , such as restaurants or sport events. The staff at Zip hearing certainly helped me find the right solution for me.

Mostly good, some weird sounds

Being a first time user of any hearing device the sound is good with voice, background noise can be loud and sharp noises like running water, paper is very sharp and loud. My voice feels like in a tin can but the hearing specialist said this is normal and I’ll adjust. I can certainly hear better though.

Signa Silk X

The Silk X is an excellent hearing aid with clear sound. It's totally hidden inside my ear, and it doesn't have the occlusion effect. Though Signa has an app on my phone, I've not had to use the app to improve or change the sound, only to check the battery level. So glad to be able to improve my hearing!

Common questions about Signia Silk X hearing aids

Bluetooth / ConnectivityDisposable BatteriesControls/AppsMiscellaneous

Choose questions category:

Is this hearing aid Bluetooth compatible?
No, this hearing aid is simply too small to house the components required for Bluetooth connectivity.
Can I stream audio from the TV?
No, this hearing aid is not compatible with Signia's StreamLine TV accessory.
How will I know when it's time to change the battery?
About 20 minutes to an hour before your battery quits, the hearing aid will play a low battery notification of steady beeps or a melodic tune, letting you know it's time to change the battery. Your hearing provider can demonstrate this sound for you in the fitting software so you know what to expect.
How long do the batteries last?
Battery life will vary from 2-5 days, depending on your hearing loss, and how many hours a day you wear them.
Are the batteries hard to change?
Relative to other hearing aids, yes. This hearing aid uses the smallest battery size available, size 10, and if you have poor dexterity you're going to have a hard time changing these batteries.
How can I control this hearing aid, and which settings can I control?
The Signia app will give you the most flexibility, allowing you to change volume, program, and base and treble. Or, you can use the miniPocket handheld remote which will let you change the volume and program.
How do I turn this hearing aid on and off?
To turn the hearing aid on, simply close the battery door. Opening the battery door will turn the hearing aid off.
Is there any reason not to buy Silk?
Silk is ideal for mild to moderate hearing loss. If your loss is beyond that, Silk is not going to be powerful enough for you, and you shouldn't buy it.
Is this hearing aid CROS compatible?
Yes, Silk X can be used with the CROS Silk X device.
Can I get this hearing aid with a telecoil?
No, it's not an option.

KEY FEATURES

1. Disposable battery

The image of Disposable battery hearing aids feature

This model is powered by a size 10 battery, expected to last between 2-5 days. To prolong your battery life, it’s recommended to open the battery door when not in use. Another benefit of opening the battery door is it allows the moisture accumulated throughout the day to dry out. The size 10 battery is the smallest hearing aid battery size available, and for some people, these can be a challenge to change. Before ordering a Silk hearing aid you may want to request to view a sample or similar device in your hearing care provider’s office to ensure that the parts are going to be easy enough to handle on a routine basis. Your purchase from ZipHearing includes a 1 year supply of batteries.

2. Dome/Sleeve

The image of Dome/Sleeve hearing aids feature

The dome slips over and encloses/protects the receiver/speaker. Domes are made with medical-grade silicone. They come in different shapes and sizes—your hearing care professional will help you pick the right size and style. Signia also has the option of using what they call “Sleeves” instead of domes, which are essentially just a longer, conical shaped dome, do a google search for “Signia sleeves” to see pictures of these. Selecting the appropriate dome or sleeve will change the sound performance of your hearing aids, so if you’re not achieving satisfying results with your hearing aids, your hearing provider will often consider trying a different dome style. In some cases, such as for wearers with severe or profound hearing loss, an earmold will be used instead of a dome.

3. Microphone

The image of Microphone hearing aids feature

The microphone picks up the sound from the environment and sends it into the hearing aid for processing. You’ll mostly want to leave the microphone alone, but periodically check it to ensure it’s not being plugged up by hair care products or oils.

4. Pull string

The image of Pull string hearing aids feature

This handy string makes it easier to insert and remove the hearing aid. Don’t worry- in most cases this string tucks away neatly inside the ear canal, but if it doesn’t talk to your hearing care provider about shortening or removing the pull string.

5. Receiver

The image of Receiver hearing aids feature

The receiver AKA speaker delivers the sound into the ear. Silk hearing aids are what Signia calls “ready to wear,” or in other words “off the shelf,” and this does impose some limitations on the hearing aids, one of which is the receiver gain. All Silk hearing aids come with relatively low power (~40 dB) receivers. As a result, Silk hearing aids are best for wearers with mild hearing loss.

6. Wax filter

The image of Wax filter hearing aids feature

When it comes to maintaining your hearing aids, this is where you’ll spend most of your time. The wax filter (mostly) prevents wax and oils from getting into the receiver/speaker. Your hearing provider may supply you with MiniReceiver 2.0 wax guards enabling you to periodically change these on your own. Some people never have to change these wax filters, others have to change them weekly. Your purchase includes 1 pack of wax filters, and you can purchase additional wax filters directly from your ZipHearing provider, or through a number of sites online such as Amazon.
