Signia- Why is it hard to hear in noisy environments?

March 2, 2023

It was such a promising night – old friends in town, and a night of catching up over dinner at your favorite restaurant. Then it happens. Again. You find yourself unable to stay in the conversation, with the sounds of other diners, the rattling of dishware and silver, even the soft music playing in the background all coming together and keeping you from hearing what is being discussed at your table.

If you’ve ever encountered a situation like those above, you’re not alone. From quiet to noisy environments, those with hearing loss can have trouble separating speech from background noise, making it difficult to keep up. If you find yourself having trouble following the conversation due to background noises, that’s a sign that a visit to a hearing care professional and consultation is in order.

Thankfully, there are new technologies available for those having trouble with background noise, including hearing aids with advanced features that can bring you right back into the conversation.

Augmented FocusTM: A revolution in hearing aids.

Talk about a game changer: New Insio Charge&Go AX hearing aids from Signia feature a proprietary technology that can separate speech from background noise!1 Well, in lay terms, it uses two processors – one for the sounds you want to focus on, like conversation, and another to bring in surrounding noise. That’s important because those background noises keep you alert and aware of your surroundings. But with Insio Charge&Go AX, you can stay aware while staying fully involved.

Think of it like a 3D movie, where the key image – what the director needs you to see – appears right in front of you while the background images remain further away.

This is a revolutionary breakthrough, and one that can actually give you better than normal hearing, so you once again understand what’s being said to you without asking people to repeat themselves.2 Insio Charge&Go AX hearing aids sense and adapt to your changing environments, so you can go from a quiet walk in the park to a bustling streetside cafe with no need to make any adjustments.

Life moves pretty fast. Your hearing aid should keep up.

In fact, Signia’s Augmented Xperience platform – the AX in Insio Charge&Go AX – doesn’t merely keep up: It sets the pace. While the chief benefit are dual-processors that can separate speech from background noise so that speech feels closer to you, there are myriad other features and benefits to the Insio Charge&Go AX1:

  • Custom-fit and designed for your ears for easy insertion, removal, and control
  • iPhone and Android streaming compatibility
  • Acoustic Motion Sensors – personalize your hearing experience by adapting to movement to help you maintain awareness of your environment
  • Easy app control with Signia Assistant – it’s a hearing care professional in your pocket to help with your hearing and hearing aid 24/7

Of course, there are more features that make the new Insio Charge&Go AX such a remarkable hearing aid, but the best way to learn about them is to experience them for yourself. Call us today and ask about Signia and the Insio Charge&Go AX hearing aid.
