Signia By Yes By Yes Hearing Aid Models
One of the world’s most-respected brands of hearing aids, Signia By Yes provides a wide range of hearing aids to improve your hearing and restore your ability to live an active, productive life. Signia By Yes devices all use their own software to separate speech from background noise, so that you can focus on what matters most, and never miss a word.
Signia By Yes devices are expensive compared to some other brands, but they provide reliable devices that produce outstanding sound clarity in a wide range of soundscapes. Technical innovations in Signia By Yes’s AX and X models analyze and process each sound environment to reduce ambient noise and enhance speech clarity.
Signia By Yes’s Own Voice Processing also overcomes a common complaint of hearing aid users, which is that their own speech sounds unnatural to them. It achieves this by acoustically scanning the wearer’s head as the device is fitted, learning to recognize their speech, and applying a dedicated setting for when the wearer is speaking. When they are not speaking, sounds are amplified normally.
Signia By Yes devices even come with tinnitus-relieving tools. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to easily control volume and other features of your hearing aids using your phone or a small remote control, and also allows them to be used to stream speech and music from TVs, computers, and other devices.
Note: Prices in the reviews of each model below are presented as a range, rather than a fixed price, for two important reasons. First, the devices are available in up to five performance levels (1, 2, 3, 5, 7), which indicate the level of technical complexity, and thus the price. Second, the devices are not sold directly by Signia By Yes, but by a number of resellers and hearing care providers, who may offer reduced pricing on many models.
One of Signia By Yes’s most recent models, the Styletto AX rechargeable hearing aid provides many state-of-the-art features. Its award-winning RIC (receiver-in-canal) design is smaller and more discreet than its predecessor and boasts even more features. It’s the world’s first hearing aid with acoustic-motion sensors. This, combined with Signia By Yes’s Augmented Xperience audiology platform, gives you the outstanding speech clarity you need with the advanced hearing aid features you want.
These advanced features include the ability to control Styletto AX hearing aids via the Signia By Yes app or a small and easy-to-use remote control, and the wireless charging case which provides up to three days of power without a recharge. In addition, full Bluetooth connectivity allows you to stream audio from your TV, computer, or other devices. At $2,600 to $6,000 per pair, these hearing aids aren’t cheap, but they’re an excellent choice for people with mild to severe hearing loss who seek quality and are comfortable with smartphones.

But you will notice the benefits—clearer sound, reduced background noise, and the ability to call and stream.

How do I Purchase Signia By Yes devices?
You can initiate the purchase of Signia By Yes hearing aids either by visiting the company’s website or the website/offices of one of the hearing care professionals listed in their store finder. After that, buying is a two-stage process:
Before you actually purchase any Signia By Yes device, you need to have your hearing tested. On its website, Signia By Yes offers an online hearing test that you can take at home in less than five minutes to determine how impaired your hearing is and whether you really need a hearing aid. However, this is not an official diagnosis, so to select a device that is appropriate for your particular hearing problems, you’ll have to visit an audiologist or one of Signia By Yes’s hearing care provider partners.
After your hearing is properly assessed by an audiologist or by one of Signia By Yes’s hearing care providers, you can work together to select the Signia By Yes model that is best for you. When you have made your selection, Signia By Yes’s store finder can help you locate a store near you where you can purchase the hearing aids and have them fitted and configured.
Signia By Yes Payment Options
Signia By Yes hearing aid prices can vary, depending on the model you select, its features and performance level, and your provider. Some hearing care providers offer pricing bundles that include hearing tests, examinations, and follow-up care. Because hearing aids can be a major investment, most of these providers also offer comfortable payment plans, with lower payments spread out over longer periods, to fit your financial needs.
Signia By Yes Features and Tools
Features that differentiate Signia By Yes hearing aids from other brands include:
Augmented Xperience: Signia By Yes’s award-winning Augmented Focus™ technology (including Auto EchoShield, Own Voice Processing 2.0, and HandsFree features) processes speech and background noise separately and creates a clear contrast between them, in any environment.

Own Voice Processing: Signia By Yes’s algorithms allow you to “train” your hearing aids to recognize your own voice, to more easily distinguish it from other voices in conversations.
Tinnitus Notch Therapy: All Signia By Yes hearing aids contain this feature, which offers you the possibility of a permanent reduction of tinnitus symptoms.
Rechargeable Batteries: Many Signia By Yes models allow easy recharging to eliminate the need to replace batteries. Some models provide this in a portable recharging pack, for easier travel.
Bluetooth connectivity allows control of all hearing aid functions from the Signia By Yes smartphone app, and provides wireless connection to your TV, computer, tablet, or smartphone. This allows speech and music streaming, including access in compatible movie theaters and live performance venues.
My WellBeing app allows you to set goals and track your overall health.
