Piscataway, NJ, July 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Introducing Styletto X hearing aids from Signia: Delivering great speech understanding and instant 24/7 support in a consumer-preferred design

  • Signia’s iconic, award-winning1 Styletto hearwear™ now available to address a wider range of hearing loss
  • Features Qi wireless rechargeable technology for easy charging and streaming on-the-go
  • With a new “Mask” setting and more remote service options, Styletto X addresses hearing and health concerns raised by Covid-19

Combining sleek design, powerful functionality and comprehensive remote support options, hearing aid innovation leader Signia today launched Styletto X.

Styletto X transforms hearing aids into highly sophisticated hearwear™. This one-of-a-kind, consumer preferred design is built on the Signia Xperience platform for better than normal hearing and optimized listening in any situation – even when moving. Along with portable rechargeability, Bluetooth® connectivity and self-service support via Signia Assistant, Styletto X is the ideal choice to hear what matters most.

Styletto X – Form and function in perfect sync

“With its slim, rounded form and striking color combinations, Styletto X was developed to attract individuals who wouldn’t otherwise consider wearing hearing aids, while providing new options to existing wearers looking to upgrade to a sleek and modern device,” said Dr. Tish Ramirez, Au.D., Signia’s Vice President, Clinical Education & Professional Relations.

As evidence of its appeal, a study found the eye-catching Styletto form factor to be preferred by 8 out of 10 hearing aid consumers. 2

Signia is the first hearing aid brand to incorporate Qi wireless charging technology, enabling wearers to simply place the Styletto X pocket-sized charging case on a charging pad, versus having to plug it into the charging port. Styletto X can be fully charged in only four hours to provide a full day’s wearing, including five hours of streaming.3

Technology for the hear and now

With Styletto X, Signia introduces two game-changing technologies that address the complex hearing and health-related challenges posed by the global COVID-19 crisis – making it the right device at the right time. These include:

“Mask” setting: Widespread use of facemasks makes communication more difficult for those with hearing loss by muffling a speaker’s voice. This new hearing aid setting improves audibility for those communicating with someone wearing a face covering.

Remote Care by Signia: This breakthrough remote hearing care program enables hearing care professionals to recommend, fit and fine-tune hearing aids remotely. Remote Care combines Signia TeleCare – the first full, live remote fine-tuning solution in the industry – and the revolutionary new Signia Assistant, an AI-based virtual assistant, for complete, 24/7 remote service and support.

Styletto X is available now in the contemporary color combinations Snow White/Rose Gold, Black/Silver and Cosmic Blue/Rose Gold and in elegant new White or Black.
