Soundly is an independently owned hearing health research tool. Our reviews are conducted by hearing aid wearers and audiologists. We physically review the leading hearing aids on the market for sound quality, comfort, durability, and more. Our review process starts with hands-on unboxing and days, weeks, or months of wear. We also record live sound demos using a calibrated binaural microphone (read more here). We experiment with backend fitting software for prescription products and use test box measures to measure prescriptive accuracy and flexibility. Our work is funded through reader support. When you buy through our links, we may earn a commission. Read more about our story here.

PROFESSIONAL FITTING

Signia Pure Charge&Go hearing aids are the smallest behind-the-ear devices on the market and amazingly hold the longest-lasting battery at nearly 40 hours per charge. The AX is most known for limiting background noise by using motion detection to gather information about your surroundings as you move from one space to the next. The hearing aids automatically sense when you start walking or sit down and make intelligent decisions about where to focus.

Signia 5AX is the second technology level available and comes with most of the core features available. The 5AX has 32 channels of customization for your audiologist to work with and loses some ability to process high-frequency sounds. If you spend time in mid-sized groups and at home, this product is an excellent choice.

The breakdown

Signia hearing aids are comparably priced to the other top-of-the-line products like Oticon More and ReSound One. So what makes this hearing aid different?

Signia Pure Charge&Go AX is currently the smallest behind-the-ear hearing aid on the market and offers the longest battery life at 36+ hours per charge. Signia has also set itself apart by doubling down on motion detection to adjust programs based on whether you are stationary or moving. Signia offers CROS functionality for people with single-sided deafness.

The tech inside

Augmented Xperience hearing aids use two processors to better differentiate speech and noise sounds. This extra processing power allows Signia to offer more motion detection to gather information about your surroundings as you move from one space to the next. The hearing aids automatically sense when you start walking or sit down and make intelligent decisions about where to focus. Signia Augmented Experience also gets top marks for the Signia Assistant feature in their app. The Signia assistant asks you simply worded questions about your current environment and preferences and adjusts your program based on your responses.

Getting up close

Signia Pure Charge&Go AX hearing aids sit behind the ear and offer simple-to-use buttons for volume control and mode changes. These are the smallest behind-the-ear hearing aids on the market. 

Signia AX comes in 10 colors, including black, grey, beige and rosegold.
