On March 1, Signia announced the launch of its latest hearing aids, the Pure Charge&Go Nx.
The new products from Signia use a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a proprietary feature called Own Voice Processing (OVP), designed to help new hearing aid users better adapt to the sound of their own voice. A common complaint among many hearing aid users that sometimes leads to non-use. According to one clinical study, conducted at the University of Northern Colorado, use of the OVP feature significantly improved the acceptance of the hearing aid user’s own voice.

In addition to the OPV feature and rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the Pure Charge&Go uses something Signia calls enhanced Bluetooth connectivity.
According to a Signia press release, enhanced Bluetooth connectivity enables wearers to enjoy high-quality, long-lasting stereo streaming of TV audio, music, and phone calls directly to both hearing aids. Wearers can stream up to five hours per day and benefit from 17 hours of battery cell run time before needing to recharge, or 19 hours of run time without streaming.
The new Signia Pure Charge&Go hearing aids include other features, such access to Signia’s myControl App, which enables them to change settings and personalize their hearing aids directly from their smartphones, and the myHearing™ App, which provides the support, exercises, and user guides to get the most out of their hearing aids.
The new product line also utilizes TeleCare 3.0, which enables the hearing aid user to schedule remote consultations with their hearing care professional, who can adjust their settings remotely for greater convenience.
