Introducing the Primax

Primax is the first hearing aid launched under the Signia/Siemens branding. This premium, digital hearing aid has been proven by independent studies to reduce listening effort throughout the day. At the same time, Primax boasts the same technologies introduced by previous Siemens hearing aids, which outperform normal hearing in challenging noise situations, such as restaurants or parties: a binaural processing platform. The Primax is the most advanced hearing aid platform to date from Sivantos Group.

In 2015, Siemens was transferred under the umbrella of Sivantos Group, a leader in the hearing aid industry. Signia is a new venture that will be co-branded with Siemens on hearing aids going forward. For this dual brand, Sivantos Group says, “With Signia, we want to create a brand that is more human and personal, while building on the Siemens values of technological innovation and quality. For the years to come, this dual branding will allow us to leverage the best of both brands, appealing to a broader demographic, which will be the basis of our future growth.”


SpeechMaster

To improve speech recognition, Primax is equipped with the new SpeechMaster feature, which enhances speech in many different disputations. SpeechMaster is powered by a collection of algorithms which allow Primax to focus on the voices the wearer wants to hear, while eliminating unwanted background noise. SpeechMaster aids the wearer’s listening with digital noise reduction, directionality microphones, and amplification.

EchoShield

Along with SpeechMaster, EchoShield is an innovative feature that eases listening effort for Primax wearers. EchoShield softens sounds to prevent over-amplification, which may cause discomfort for the wearer. It is especially useful in challenging acoustic spaces, such as lecture halls, hallways, places of worship, and atriums. EchoShield balances out loud, reflected sounds and protects softer sounds.

TwinPhone

In this age of smartphones, Primax takes accessibility one step further with the hands-free TwinPhone feature. Using a wireless, magnetic connection to the smartphone, Primax allows wearers to stream conversations directly to their ears, simultaneously reducing listening effort and preventing the unpleasant feedback between a hearing aid and a phone.

HD Music

For music lovers and musicians alike, Primax’s HD Music feature enhances sounds to deliver music fidelity. HD Music offers three modes of listening to maximize the musical experience: recorded music, live music, and performing music.

CROS/ BiCROS

For people who experience single-sided hearing loss, Primax offers a solution with the CROS/BiCROS hearing aids. Using e2e wireless technology, the CROS Pure transmitter wirelessly transfers sounds from the hearing aid side to the unaided ear. This gives wearers a fuller sound picture, with the ability to hear sound from both sides.

Styles and Other Features

Primax is available in receiver-in-canal, behind-the-ear, or in-the-ear styles. They are all discreet and sleek in design, while providing maximum performance. It is also available in different performance levels for varying degrees of hearing loss: 7px, 5px, and 3px.

Primax is available in best-selling hearing aid models from Siemens/Sivantos Group: Ace, Pure (receiver-in-canal), Motion (behind-the-ear), and Insio (in-the-ear).

Wearers of Primax will find ease of operation with the touchControl app and remote control, and connectivity to other devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) through the easyTek app. Primax hearing aids also offer tinnitus therapy (static noise and ocean wave sounds).

Introducing the Primax Star Platform

primax-binaxNew from Signia is the Primax Star platform, the most sophisticated technology to date. Star combines high definition binaural technology and remote hearing fine tuning for effortless hearing. Based on a study from the University of Northern Colorado, primax features such as SpeechMaster and EchoShield were found to significantly reduce listening effort throughout the day.

Binaural hearing occurs when audio data is picked up from both ears and mixed for a natural listening experience. Primax Star is equipped with a number of sophisticated technologies that work simultaneously to ensure a high definition experience, capturing sounds from the breakfast table to the conference room. High Definition binaural with Primax Star wirelessly transmits audio signals between both hearing aids to provide clear and accurate sounds in your environment.

With high-powered microphones and speech recognition features, Primax Star provides wearers with excellent access to conversation – regardless of the environment. Speech features and hearing aid microphones are designed to constantly adjust, while still capturing the other intricate sounds around you. This enables Primax wearers to focus on speakers even against challenging background noise.

Remote fine-tuning is achieved through TeleCare 2.0, which keeps you in touch with us at Greentree Audiology. If there are adjustments to be made, we can fine-tune your listening experience from a remote location. This technology is available with the Silk, Cellion, and Pure 13 BT Primax models.

Signia Cellion Primax

Cellion’s inductive, contactless charging is simple to operate: simply place your Cellion aids into the recharging station and they will automatically begin charging. LED lights will give you the status of your hearing aid’s battery levels. As an added bonus, the Cellion charging station is also a dehumidifier, ensuring that your hearing aids are moisture-free for proper functioning. A micro USB charger is convenient for people who are on the go and may need an extra charge.

As a wireless hearing aid, Cellion’s listening features are easily adjusted with the touchControl App and miniPocket remote control. Audio streaming is also available with the easyTek app. Cellion’s directional microphones improve speech recognition and provide excellent sound performance in multiple power levels. Cellion is a mini receiver-in-canal hearing aid.
