It’s amazing how technology has changed over the years. Rather than a bulky desktop computer, many people today have small, pocket-sized devices that enable them to send emails on the go, watch videos wherever and whenever they want, and stay connected to others like never before. And just like smartphones and tablets, hearing aids have come a long way from their older, clunkier predecessors.
Early hearing aids were much larger and far more complicated that the devices available today. Modern hearing aids sit comfortably behind your patients’ ears and are so small they can be held between two fingers. Styletto from Signia is the next step in this evolution. While its stylish appearance is a game-changer for the industry, its design is just one thing that sets it apart.
Stylish design is just the start
Styletto’s unique form factor accentuates its efficiency. The lithium-ion battery inside is pin-shaped, allowing the hearing aid’s slim, aesthetically pleasing look. Not only does this design make it an attractive accessory, but it’s also an advanced piece of technology that gives people with hearing loss a full, natural sound.
Powered by the technologically advanced Signia Nx platform, Styletto provides Own Voice Processing (OVP™) for the most natural-sounding own voice and the most advanced soundscape processing for superior speech understanding in noise. Our Ultra HD e2e binaural link enables both these processes. It supports beam-forming technology to create a precise scanning beam that identifies the individual sound path of the wearer’s voice as it travels to the hearing aids. In this way, Ultra HD e2e enables instantaneous and continuous dynamic own voice detection and patented dual processing of the own voice and the remaining soundscape.
This proven technology also provides clear speech understanding and a natural hearing experience in all situations, even the loudest. Special algorithms enable the most precise spatial awareness. Styletto wearers get an uncompromised spatially open experience with all the benefits of directionality. And the extended dynamic range with 113dB maximum input delivers excellent signal quality in loud environments.
The whole system is steered by Signia’s unique classifier, which ensures OVP and soundscape processing work in perfect harmony to replicate the experience of natural hearing.
Styletto: Hearing aids for today’s lifestyles
Portable rechargeability is essential for your patients’ fast-paced lives. Not only do the traditional zinc-air batteries mean extra costs for the consumer, but it can be difficult to find hearing aid batteries while traveling. Styletto’s rechargeable lithium-ion batteries deliver a full day’s wearing, giving your patients time to live their life and charge their Styletto hearing aids while they sleep.
However, there’s still the matter of recharging the hearing aids on the move. Styletto’s portable charging case solves the problem of hearing aids running out of power while away from home or getting stuck in a different location with no means of recharging. Styletto’s clever charging case provides an additional three full days of wearing time when fully charged. That means that wherever your patients travel, they’ll have no need to use a wall socket for up to four days!
