The Signia Styletto AX is the latest and greatest technology Signia has to offer. The New Styletto AX line is the smallest rechargeable slim RIC hearing aid that is full of features. The Augmented or AX platform includes two independent processors. Traditional hearing aids have processed all sounds through one processor. The issue with this, is that all the signals through the one processor are competing against each other. The Augmented Xperience platform has two dedicated processors. Each processor can optimize on different parts of sound and speech without compromising the other. One processor is for Focus Sounds, which includes relevant parts of speech in a conversation. The second processor is Surroundings to help with awareness.
Signia now offers a hearing aid that offers direct streaming with Apple IOS and ASHA-Compatible Android Phones
A Contralateral Routing Of Signals (CROS) hearing aid is a solution for treating single sided deafness. A Cros is worn on the ear that is unaidable or not able to be helped by hearing aids and transmits the sounds over to the hearing aid worn on the normal ear. Cros devices typically look just like a hearing aid, but it has no speaker. This system allows you to hear sounds from both sides of your head through the hearing aid on your normal ear.
A BiCros is very similar to a Cros system. Expect on this system the hearing aid is treating the hearing loss on one ear and mixing the signals from the Cros. Most manufactures have the BiCros and Cros as the same device and it is just programmed to the best type for your hearing loss.
