Signia Launches Augmented Xperience Hearing Aid Platform

PISCATAWAY, NEW JERSEY – Hearing aid innovator Signia today announced the launch of its Augmented Xperience (AX) hearing aid platform that is said to “intelligently and automatically processes sound to better ensure that patients hear more clearly – regardless of the listening environment”.

According to the company, “rather than simply amplifying all sounds, like most of today’s hearing aids, Augmented Xperience intelligently understands which sounds should be pulled to the foreground and prioritized, and which should remain in the background”. 

Using what is said to be a world first split-processing technology, the hearing aids offer a “fully-immersive and intelligent hearing experience. Sounds shift into the foreground and background naturally and seamlessly depending on the environment, creating an augmented hearing experience that’s better than normal hearing in certain situations”.

“Hearing isn’t always easy. A group of people talking simultaneously, softly-spoken talkers in a bustling room, too much background noise – these are challenging environments regardless of a patient’s hearing ability. Augmented Xperience changes the game by understanding which sounds should be brought into focus and which remain in the background – creating an almost superhuman level of hearing that optimizes a patient’s performance through enhanced hearing in any situation.”

Dr. Leanne Powers, Director of Professional Education at Signia

Signia’s all-new Pure Charge&Go AX hearing aids, the first to feature the AX platform, deliver up to 36 hours of run-time per charge and are directly compatible with Android and iOS devices – delivering HCPs a solution that appeals to all patients regardless of their device preference.

 

Augmented Xperience Platform

 

The Augmented Xperience platform is rooted in a world’s first Augmented Focus™ technology that processes speech and background noise separately to “create a clear contrast between the two”. It then recombines them to in order to deliver improved clarity in challenging listening environments.

Augmented Focus leverages two independent processors – the first of which addresses ‘focus’ sounds like the speech of a conversation partner, while the second addresses ‘surrounding’ sounds like background music or ambient laughter, which create situational awareness and excitement. The two processors capture focus and surrounding sounds independently to create a greater contrast between the two – pulling focus sounds closer and placing surrounding sounds further away.  

In addition to Augmented Focus, the AX platform features multiple other technology world firsts, including:

  • Acoustic-Motion Sensors: Recognize one’s movements and adjust sounds accordingly to ensure hearing in any situation is as precise and personalized as possible.
  • Own Voice Processing (OVP™): Processes the wearer’s voice separately from other sounds, leading to higher user satisfaction with the sound of their own voice.
  • Signia Face Mask Mode: Delivers better speech understanding through masks.
  • The Signia app: Provides access to hearing aid controls, streaming capabilities, tinnitus therapy, the Signia Assistant for 24/7 digital support, Signia Telecare for remote care support, and much more.

“Signia has invested heavily in developing worlds-first technologies across motion sensing, voice processing, speech intelligibility, and now augmented hearing. With the AX platform, and its Augmented Focus technology, Signia is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to our HCPs and their patients by providing them with solutions that level-up their human performance through optimized hearing throughout one’s day.”
