In May, Signia announced the launch of the company’s latest hearing aid platform: Augmented Xperience (AX).
According to the company, the new platform uses ‘split-processing technology’ to “intelligently understand which sounds should be pulled to the foreground and prioritized, and which should remain in the background” to create an augmented hearing experience.

While on the surface, the devices don’t look that much different than they did on the previous Xperience platform, there have been several notable changes and upgrades to the Pure Charge&Go hearing aids beyond the improvements in sound quality.
Upon closer inspection, the most obvious change to the hearing aids is the new receiver/dome system, which replaces the company’s popular receiver and click dome system with what it now calls EarWear 3.0.
On our demo devices, the fit of the receivers themselves was found to be surprisingly good, tested on multiple ears. The special bend to the receivers actually allows the device to securely hug much closer to the head compared with a typical RIC-style hearing aid and feel much more secure.
Beyond the new receiver and dome system, the company is also moving away from inductive charging, to a new galvanic (contact) charging system – which is also now finding its way across the company’s other hearing aids as well.
The hearing aids can deliver an impressive 24 hours of use, with 5 hours of streaming. The Pure Charge&Go T AX (which includes a telecoil) delivers up to 31 hours of use on a single charge including 5 hours of streaming.
We had absolutely no problem with battery life, despite extensive audio streaming using an iPhone.
The devices come in a new, portable charger – similar in design to the popular Styletto charging case, along with additional charging options, including the Pure Dry&Clean which charges, dries and sanitizes the hearing aids:
The hearing aids are compatible with the Signia App, offering users the ability to customize the sound quality, change programs, interact with the app’s virtual assistant or connect with your hearing professional for a telehealth session.
The AX platform’s Bluetooth connectivity supports Made-for-iPhone (MFi) and ASHA (Android) direct streaming so wearers can stay connected.
With the new Augmented Xperience platform, the Pure Charge&Go offers notable improvements in sound quality, fit comfort, and battery life. Support for both iPhone and Android direct streaming make the devices especially appealing for those who like to stay connected.
The Signia PureCharge&Go AX, and PureCharge&Go AX T, are currently offered in 3 technology levels: 3AX, 5AX, 7AX.
