PROS: The world’s first hearing aid which monitors and provides a clear overview of the wearer’s listening environments using Bluetooth-based data. Equipped with the primax star platform, Signia Pure 13 BT uses the notion of the ‘connected ear’, enabling wearer’s to remain fully connected to their environment, to each other, to their iPhone and to their hearing care professional.
With the use of motion sensor technology and the myControl App, the wearer’s acoustic environment is constantly monitored enabling the hearing aids to react dynamically to changing listening situations. For example, wearers who enjoy walks in noisy environments with their conversation partners can be assured that the hearing aids will focus not only on speech but also on ambient sounds for increased safety of the individual.
Wireless connectivity enables information to be sent from one hearing aid to the other resulting in high definition binaural hearing. Wireless capabilities also allow iPhone users to stream mobile phone calls and their favourite music directly through their hearing aids without the requirement of a relay accessory. TeleCare 2.0 allows audiologists to make simple fine-tuning adjustments to hearing aids for clients who live remotely.
CONS: The Pure 13 BT is only available in the RIC (receiver-in-canal) style and is not an option for individuals who prefer a custom made device.
