Introducing Signia Nx – for the most natural own voice and highest acceptance
Hearing care professionals we strive to provide hearing aid users with sound quality that replicates what nature intended. Overall audibility and a natural sounding own voice are essential for first-fit acceptance. Unfortunately, many hearing aid wearers do not like the sound of their own voice.
Every hearing aid wearer experiences a change in the sound of their own voice. First time wearers with a mild or moderate hearing loss especially struggle with this perceived occlusion effect. Any such negative perception heavily affects acceptance and often leads to the rejection of hearing aids.
In an attempt to resolve the own voice issue, hearing care professionals can reduce gain and open the venting, which often decreases audibility and speech understanding in noise. Whatever they do, the result is a compromise between sound quality and overall audibility.
Until now, this widely acknowledged problem has been considered unsolvable.
Signia Nx, the world’s most advanced hearing aid platform, provides the first genuine solution to the own voice issue. It delivers unsurpassed first-fit acceptance by combining uncompromised audibility with a natural sounding own voice.
The world’s first Own Voice Processing (OVPTM) improves spontaneous acceptance of own voice for 75 percent of dissatisfied hearing aid wearers.*
The revolutionary natural-sounding own voice provided by Signia Nx is based on its leading Ultra HD e2e binaural link. Its continuous, full-bandwidth audio exchange enables dynamic scanning and processing of the wearer’s own voice completely independently from all other sounds, including all other voices.
This allows hearing care professionals to fine-tune the hearing aids for optimal audibility of the entire acoustic environment, without having to compromise this audibility to improve the sound quality of the wearer’s own voice.
In this way, Signia Nx with OVP benefits all hearing aid wearers. It replicates the natural hearing experience to deliver the highest sound quality and releases the hearing aid’s full potential for best hearing performance in any situation, even in very noisy environments.
