Siemens Hearing Aids
Founded in Berlin in 1847, Siemens is the world’s oldest hearing aid manufacturer. Their humble beginnings boasted telegraphic instruments, until the invention of the telephone in 1877, which inspired Siemens’ inventors to create a telephone receiver, which improved the listening experience for people who were hard of hearing. With the advent of the electrical age, Siemens began to formulate electrical instruments, with the first production of hearing aids in 1913.
With this substantial history in the production of hearing instruments, it is no surprise that Siemens introduced the first hearing aid to outperform normal hearing. In 2014, the Siemens binax hearing aid was found in two independently-conducted experiments to outperform normal hearing in challenging noise situations. A year later, in 2015, Siemens produced OneMic, a binaural receiving system for hearing aids that have one microphone. Siemens has also received acclaim for the Aquaris hearing aid, which debuted in 2011; it is the world’s first and only completely waterproof and dustproof digital hearing aid.
More About Siemens Hearing Aids
Siemens was the first manufacturer to produce behind-the-ear hearing aids (1959) and in-the-ear hearing aids (1966). Currently, Siemens offers a large number of hearing aids, with many styles and options, with ranges that treat mild to profound degrees of hearing loss. With invisible in-the-ear options and discreet behind-the-ear options, as well as devices worn in the canal, Siemens hearing aids are designed with the latest technological advancements, fast processing systems, and wireless capabilities.
Siemens receiver-in-canal hearing aids come in the following models: Ace, Pure, Carat, and Orion 2. These are comfortable and discreet, are easily adjustable to different levels of amplification, and all offer binaural capabilities. Behind-the-ear hearing aids treat all levels of hearing loss from mild to profound, and provide a high quality of sound with multiple directional microphones. Siemens BTE hearing aids include the Aquaris, Motion, Nitro, Orion 2, Sirion 2, Intuis 2, and Lotus.
Siemens’ in-the-ear hearing aids are customizable, made from a mold of the wearer’s ear. They are available in a variety of sizes, from completely-in-canal to a full-shell hearing aid, which sits at the surface of the wearer’s ear. These ITE hearing aids are available in the following models: Insio, Nitro, Orion 2, Sirion 2, Intuis 2, and Lotus. With Siemens’ innovation, all ITE hearing aid models offer binaural directionality as well as wireless connectivity. As such, they can be controlled the downloadable app touchControl for your smart phone, allowing for an ease of access when adjusting volumes and program features – which is otherwise difficult with the smaller controls found on ITE hearing aids.
Additionally, Siemens hearing aids offer tinnitus treatment options in the form of sound therapy and sound masking, as well as assistive listening devices. The Siemens pocket hearing instrument works in conjunction with your hearing aid, or a neck piece, to amplify sound from personal electronic devices, conversations, and home entertainment systems. The pocket hearing instrument also connects to your smartphone and is controllable with a downloadable app.
Siemens has an impressive and proven track record in consistent innovation, design, and technology advancement. Their powerful hearing devices continue to uphold this long inventive tradition.
