Signia Primax 5px – A Great Hearing Aid for Difficult Listening Situations?
The Signia Primax 5px (aka Siemens Primax 5px) is a great hearing aid for difficult listening situations. It has superseded the Siemens binax 5bx, whose older sibling the Siemens binax 7bx was the first hearing aid that promised better than normal hearing in challenging listening situations. Now the Signia Primax 7px offers clinically proven reduced listening effort throughout the day, meaning that at the end of the day you will feel less tired, more refreshed and able to live life to the full. The Primax 5px offers most of the features of the Primax 7px, albeit at a more affordable price point.
Signia 5px has all the features of the Signia 3px, as well as SpeechFocus, Directional speech enhancement and eWindScreen binaural in a separate program. Compared to Signia Primax 3px, these features can help you hear better in noisy restaurants, group meetings, in a car with passengers and outdoors with strong wind.
Signia 5px has all the features of Signia 7px, except Spatial SpeechFocus, eWindScreen binaural in universal mode, HD Music with 3 settings and Up to 12 kHz bandwidth. Compared to the Signia 5px, these extra features could help you hear better in cocktail parties, high noise environments, in a car with passengers all around, or performing music. If you do not normally find yourself in these situations, or only occasionally find yourself in these situations, then the Signia Primax 5px could be ideal for you.
Signia Primax 5px – Outstanding technology to reduce listening effort.
Imagine trying to hear the public announcement at a busy railway station, trying to listen to a phone call over a poor connection, or trying to talk to your friend in a crowded bar. You can still hear and understand, but you need to concentrate. In these situations, listening requires effort.
Especially in situations where there’s a high level of distracting ambient sound or when the sound quality of speech is bad, holding a conversation requires concentration and effort. Straining to hear voices, even for people with normal hearing, is tiring. For people with hearing difficulties, understanding speech calls for extra concentration and energy which can be exhausting, especially by the end of the day.
Thanks to its advanced SpeechMaster, primax changes that. Singling out the dominant speaker and reducing extraneous background sounds and voices, SpeechMaster highlights the other person’s voice and delivers outstanding sound quality, thus making hearing effortless and redefining the ease of listening in all situations, all day long.
Performance that’s spot on for effortless hearing.
Listening effort is reduced by making speech understanding easier. primax incorporates existing binax and micon technology while capitalizing on further innovations to achieve reduced listening effort for a wide variety of speech environments.
This is achieved by selectively activating and steering three key technologies in parallel: Noise reduction, directionality and now with primax, by steering amplification to target and elevate the dominant speaker over all other sounds in any environment.
We call this SpeechMaster.
SpeechMaster orchestrates all features, including binaural functions, according to environmental changes to highlight the dominant speaker‘s voice and reduce listening effort in every speech situation throughout the day.
Three key technologies for effortless hearing:
- Noise reduction: Reduces background noise
- Directionality: Focuses on the direction of the target speaker
- Amplification: Elevates the target speaker over all other sounds in the environment
Effortless hearing that’s clinically proven.
Previously, hearing effort has been primarily measured using questionnaires, rating scales and individual measurements recorded after the hearing test. Because these methods are subjective, they were often found to be inaccurate. A new method was therefore developed to obtain an objective measurement of listening effort based on measured brain activity.
Mastering every speech situation.
What we learn in the laboratory and clinical situations fuels our quest for continual technological improvement. With primax SpeechMaster, speech is highlighted whenever it occurs. This means that your customers can enjoy easy hearing throughout the day – be it in relatively quiet situations such as at the breakfast table or in very difficult environments such as a railway station.
