Hearing aid technology leader Sivantos unveiled its latest innovation: Styletto Connect from the brand Signia. Built upon Signia’s revolutionary SLIM-RIC form factor and Signia Nx technology platform, Styletto Connect combines exceptional design with high-quality connectivity to the wearer’s smartphone for streaming calls, music and TV via Bluetooth. It also offers fully portable rechargeability.
Styletto Connect comes with a pocket-sized portable charging case that powers a full day’s worth of wearing with five hours of streaming on a single charge. A 30-minute fast charge adds five hours of use, or three hours of streaming, for complete flexibility on the move. Fully loaded, the charging case delivers four days of user autonomy, free from plugs or cables. Three times smaller and half the weight of other chargers with a built-in power cell, it is easily pocketable.
At a time when more people develop hearing loss, but many remain reluctant to wear hearing aids, Styletto Connect was developed to offer a viable solution. It is a sleek, elegant device people can be proud to wear, while providing the latest audiological technology for better hearing and speech understanding in any situation.
Styletto Connect is available in the performance levels 7, 5, and 3 and includes remote-control options via the Signia myControl app. The new hearing aid is IP 68 rated and available in three attractive colour combinations: Black / Silver, Cosmic Blue / Rose Gold, and Snow White / Rose Gold.
Signia’s latest premium hearing aid forms part of the world’s largest Li-ion hearing aid portfolio, covering SLIM-RIC, RIC, BTE, and CROS devices as well as all performance levels. This means that hearing care professionals (HCPs) can meet the needs of experienced hearing aid users as well as younger and first-time wearers looking for stylish all-around hearwear.
Maarten Barmentlo, Chief Marketing Officer WS Audiology, said “Signia aims to create hearing solutions that don’t just help people hear better, but also help them live their life to the fullest. Our Styletto Connect delivers on this promise by offering the most advanced high-end hearing aids combined with an award-winning design, direct streaming and on-the-go charging. To support hearing care professionals in growing their business, the Signia brand offers them the greatest choice of Li-ion rechargeable hearing aids in the industry so they can offer their patients the latest hearing care technology combined with the convenience of rechargeability in several form-factors and in a wide range of price points.”
The entire Signia Li-ion portfolio is built on the acclaimed Signia Nx platform, which includes Ultra HD e2e with Narrow Directionality for superior speech understanding in noise. It also has the world’s first Own Voice Processing (OVP) feature for a more natural sounding own voice and higher user acceptance.
All hearing aids offer Signia TeleCare, the remote support and fine-tuning software that keeps HCPs connected to their clients. It enables them to offer advice and remote tuning via the wearer’s myHearing™ smartphone app in between appointments to help ensure a smooth and successful trial period and continued customer loyalty.
