In the Ear

Signia Silk breaks this mold by using what they call Click Sleeves to match the size of your ear canal and make their hearing aids ready to wear.

The majority of audiologist-prescribed invisible hearing aids require a custom ear imprint. Ultimately this cuts down on waiting time and costs.

Signia Silk is a tiny, fully customizable hearing aid with a robust set of technologies, including wireless controls via the Signia App, remote programming after your first office visit, and intelligent sound algorithms that sort out background noise.  

Signia Silk 5 is the second technology level available and comes with most of the core features available. Silk 5 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

The Signia Silk X is the smallest professionally programmed hearing aid on the market that doesn't require a custom mold. The ready-to-wear design cuts down the cost of the devices (compared to other traditional options) and allows you to get your devices more quickly. There are a lot of cheap Signia Silk lookalikes advertised online, but this product offers the full range of programming capabilities and modern tech you would expect for the price.

The tech inside

Signia Silk hearing aids offer professional-grade programming capabilities in a nearly invisible package. They do not stream music or phone calls but allow volume and programming changes through the Signia app. Signia Silk hearing aids also offer CROS, telecoil, and remote programming.

Getting up close

Signia Silk hearing aids sit entirely in the ear canal, making them nearly invisible. They do not have external buttons, but volume can be controlled using the Signia app or remote control. 

You can choose between black or tan faceplates for your hearing aids. Signia Silk hearing aids use a size 10 battery that will need to be replaced every 5-7 days.

Overall notes:

Signia technology is well regarded by audiologists and hearing aid wearers. Silk isn't the most feature-rich option on the market, but it offers real customization, quality sound, and connection to smartphone volume and program adjustments. Importantly, it is nearly invisible but doesn't require a custom mold.
