Signia Silk 5X is the Advanced model of leading German manufacturer Signia. It is called an instant fitting hearing aid because there’s no need to take a mould and have it custom made to fit your ear canal shape. Instead a variety of adaptable silicone click sleeves or domes can be used to suit your ear canal size and your levels of hearing across the frequency range.
Being one of the smallest hearing aids on the market and so falls in the category of either Invisible In the Canal (IIC) or Completely in the Canal (CIC). They are even suitable for people with fairly good low to mid frequency hearing sensitivity that mainly needs the amplification in the higher frequency range. This is because the ear can be left relatively open with the use of an open click dome reducing the occlusion effect. (The blocked sensation that traps much of one own voice and vibration in your head). So it is one of the least occluding in the canal style devices.
Being positioned deeper in you ear canal gives numerous advantages above an beyond discretion. They make use of the natural shape of the ear (Pinna/Auricle) to direct sound into the canal and preserve the natural forward emphasise and inter ear timing and intensity speech cues. The microphones are more tucked away from wind turbulence. They are also well position for the taking of phone calls and listening to music.
