The Signia Silk Nx hearing aid is a unique completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aid where it is ready-to-wear and practically one-size-fits-all. As a CIC hearing aid, it is nearly invisible to the people around you, which is a major “plus” for most patients!
With microphones inside the ear canal, sound flows naturally to the microphones, rather than pick up sound on top of your ear. This creates a very natural sound quality, and is incredibly convenient when listening on the phone! The fit of these hearing aids is very comfortable to patients, as there is a silicone “sleeve” at the end of the device, to cushion it against your er canal! As a bonus, it could even connect to a smartphone app, which would allow you more control over the volume and sound quality!
Now, there are limitations to a ready-to-wear hearing aid. For one, it is not custom-made for your ear. The hearing aids are a standard shape and size – like a behind-the-ear hearing aid is. The silicone “sleeves” at the end of the hearing aids are available in several sizes, which is how they are able to fit comfortably for most patients. However, a poorly fitting hearing aid is one of the main causes of feedback, or whistling from the hearing aid.
