Signia Hearing Aids Review

Signia is a new hearing aid brand introduced by Savantos to replace Siemens hearing aids. Signia offers the latest in hearing technology, including the Styletto and Styletto Connect SLIM RIC devices with attractive, slimline designs. The proprietary OVP technology available in some Signia hearing aids allows the wearer to hear their own voice and the voices of others more clearly. Signia is considered a premium brand in the hearing aid market, and their devices are sold in over 100 countries worldwide.

Pros
  • Own Voice Processing (OVP)
  • myHearing app connects directly to hearing care professionals

  • Many attractive styles

Cons
  • Higher cost

Signia Hearing Aids Technology

Signia’s hearing aids feature top-of-the-line technology, making the devices an excellent choice for people who want to get the most out of their hearing devices.

  • Long-lasting rechargeable lithium-ion technology, so you don’t have to deal with batteries.
  • Bluetooth connectivity, so that you can stream sound from your smart TV, music player, or smartphone directly to your hearing aid.
  • StreamLineTV accessory transmits audio directly from a television to your hearing aids with Dolby Digital quality. StreamLine TV can stream sound to multiple individuals wearing Signia hearing aids, and the myControl app on your smartphone is your remote control.
  • StreamLine Mic works with Signia Nx hearing aids to stream sound from someone speaking up to 65 feet away or connect to Bluetooth devices like smartphones, laptops and tablets to listen to music, audiobooks and more. StreamLine Mic works well with digital assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri.
  • Tinnitus programs that play adjustable white noise or ocean sounds.
  • Signia’s Own Voice Processing (OVP) technology makes your voice sound more natural and pleasant to you compared to other hearing aids, which often distort the wearer’s voice.

Mobile Apps for Signia Hearing Aids

Signia offers mobile apps with industry-leading features to simplify hearing aid adjustments and to extend functions in some device models. Signia’s mobile apps work with iOS or Android smartphones and most contemporary Signia hearing aid models.

Signia’s myControl app is a remote control for your hearing aids. The app relays motion sensor data from your smartphone to make automatic adjustments to hearing aids, so you get the best experience when you are moving around. Features include:

  • Use as a remote control for StreamLineTV and StreamLine Mic devices
  • 360-degree hearing aid mic steering
  • Adjust microphone volume and bass to treble balances
  • Change hearing program, including tinnitus therapy
  • Hearing Aid Airplane Mode lets you use the remote control features in-flight
  • Customizable low battery warning

Signia myHearing mobile app gives you access to help from your doctor from your home or anywhere else with real-time remote services. The myHearing app is a remote control for your hearing aids and provides:

  • TeleCare remote fine-tuning for hearing aids
  • CareChat gives you access to assistance quickly via text, phone or video call
  • Virtual follow-ups make it easier to adjust to new hearing aids without an office appointment
  • Video tutorials

Signia makes two other mobile apps for controlling hearing aids. The easyTek app controls sound and mic directionality and connects to Bluetooth devices. The touchControl app offers similar features but adds the ability to mute your hearing aids. Finally, you can download Signia’s free Hearing Test app, designed to help you know if you might benefit from hearing aids.

Signia Hearing Aids Cost

Signia hearing aids can be expensive, depending on the type you choose. The cheapest option we found is from the Pure Nx line at $1,349 per device, and the most costly option is the Insio 7Nx at $2,299 per aid.

How to Buy Signia Hearing Aids

Check out the company’s website to find a retailer near you. You will need to schedule an appointment to have your hearing evaluated, and your hearing care professional will advise you about which type of Signia hearing aids are best for your degree and type of hearing loss. After the hearing professional takes a mold of your ears to ensure the best fit, it will take a few weeks for the device to come in. Then you return to the office to get fitted with your hearing aids.

Signia Hearing Aids Complaints

Signia hearing aids have mixed reviews. ZipHearing gives the brand 5 out of 5 stars, with positive reviews for technological options, hearing quality and customer service. ConsumerAffairs readers rate the company 2.5 out of 5 stars with mixed reviews, some regarding the old Seimens brand and not Signia. ConsumersAdvocate ranks the brand 3.5 out of 5 stars but notes that it is difficult to provide a full evaluation because the brand is new.

Signia Hearing Aids Q&A

  • What are the advantages of lithium-ion rechargeability in Signia hearing aids?
    Lithium-ion rechargeable cells are used in consumer technology to ensure a quick charging time and more time between needing to charge again. You can use most Signia rechargeable hearing aids for 19 hours without needing to replenish the battery, and the devices reach a full charge in about three hours.

  • Does insurance cover the cost of Signia hearing aids?
    Some insurance plans cover all or part of the cost of Signia hearing aids. Discuss your insurance with your hearing care provider, and they can help you check to see if your coverage includes the device you need. Medicare does not pay for hearing aids, but some Medicare Advantage plans, Veteran’s Affairs benefits or nonprofit organizations can help you afford the cost of hearing aids.

  • Is it easy to recharge Signia hearing aids?
    If your Signia hearing aids are rechargeable, they will come with a charging station and simple instructions. If you still have questions, contact your provider or download the free myHearing app on your smartphone, and a hearing care specialist will help you charge your hearing aids.

  • Are Signia rechargeable hearing aids more expensive to buy?
    At first, the cost of rechargeable hearing aids can be higher compared to devices with replaceable cells. However, if you use your hearing aids for 10 hours a day and stream audio and talk on the phone for three hours each day, you can save around $50 a year by not buying batteries. There’s also a convenience factor to recharging hearing aids, including not dropping tiny, difficult to see batteries.

  • Do Signia hearing aids come with a warranty?
    We searched Signia’s website and two consumer brochures and found no mention of a warranty, but found a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty on other websites with options to extend coverage. Check with your retailer for warranty details for the device you are buying.

Conclusion

Signia hearing aids may be an excellent option for people who want the latest technology in a streamlined, user-friendly device. While this premium brand is new, it replaces a highly-regarded name in hearing aids and is built on some of the same technology. Savantos, the company behind the Signia brand, is a well-established leader in the hearing aid market and is known for innovative developments.

After reading the person's experience w/ this co. which was horrendous and basically told by a hearing aid some place else I will not buy from this co. I was really leaning strongly towards this brand but not now. Whatever happened to good customer service?

The worst. I have a moisture issue and I’m not near any water. For $5000, I shouldn’t have to buy a dryer. Waste money. The place I purchased is giving a hard time and I’m the only person that it happens to which I don’t believe. After I purchased them I referred many people.

Signia is junk pure and simple. Worst quality! Bought Signia Styletto. Left hearing aid had to be sent in for repair twice after only one year of use. Was told Styletto X is new and improved but who cares! I’ll never buy Signia again.

Was told Styletto charger doesn’t last more than two years which leaves $5K pair of hearing aids useless!

This is fraud in my opinion and I hope Signia gets sued and is put out of business. So unethical to charge so much and have hearing aids last short a time. Seniors on fixed income are screwed, as usual.

Aids work well, with disadvantages. 1. Rechargeable battery life much shorter than advertised. 2. There is NO off switch, aids must be placed in charger to turn off and restart if pairing is needed- a real disadvantage that makes carrying case necessary.

I received my Signia Hearing aids in August of 2020.. In November 2020 the Right Ear hearing aid broke. It was sent to the Factory for repair and I was without the aid for over a month.

In February 2021 the Left ear hearing aid was broken and had to be repaired. I was without a hearing aid for another month. On March 16, 2021 the Right ear hearing aid broke for the second time. I am disgusted with the poor quality.

This product was sold by Siemens to an Italian company. They are not Siemens quality. Don't be fooled; these are JUNK. They are nothing but a lot of grief.

Hearing aids would be good if they worked constantly, but the left one keeps cutting out. I’ve read some bad reviews today and fear that Signia customer service is generally poor and that the same problems keep cropping up and aren’t permanently fixed.

Hearing aids quit working many times. Constantly sending them in to get fixed. Would never purchase this brand again. Supposed to be waterproof, then they said water resistant, then I have to buy a dryer to put them in every night.

If there was a zero I would use it! I had the Signia Nx5 pure hearing aids fitted in November 2019- the left ear is ok, the right ear I have endless trouble with, the dome will have to be remade again. As for the remote control, it’s hopeless, I am forever rebooting my iPhone or re-pairing the aids, I have given up using it now. The money we spend on these things, they are not worth it!

I have had my Charge & Go 7nx hearing aid for only two days and they are great. I should have bought them sooner. Thanks for all the support. Keep up the good work. I would recommend Signia hearing aids for all my friends and family.

I was fitted for and purchased a pair of Signia Pure Charge and Go Nx hearing aid devices in June 2019. In less than 6 months I returned to the place where I purchased the pair stating that the left aid would not hold a charge and was no functioning as designed. The office was cordial and after several explanations and demonstrations as to what was wrong they were sent back for analysis. I received the pair approximately 10 days later.

I picked them up at the point of origin and was not able to test them out because they were not charged. I was told that the receivers were bad and both had been replaced. So at home after charging the pair I was able to test them out and link them to my iPhone. Everything seemed to be working as designed until four weeks later. The right aid failed to function properly and was not receiving anything. It would charge fully but would not amplify any sounds. I would think the product would be more reliable than what I have encountered.
