Siemens Binax Hearing Aids

Binax – Technology that outperforms normal hearing.*

In order to emulate natural binaural hearing Siemens latest Binax technology links the two hearing aids, just like the brain uses input from both ears. Using e2e (ear to ear) technology to exchange audio signals between two hearing aids in a bilateral fitting.

As a result, each hearing aid not only uses the information picked up by itself, but also the acoustic signals received by the contralateral hearing aid. In two-microphone instruments such as Carat binax™, Pure binax™ or Motion binax™, this means each instrument works with input from four microphones. Together in a bilateral fitting, they create a virtual eight-microphone network.

Similarly, e2e wireless allows single microphone instruments, such as the tiny Insio binax CICs, to exchange audio signals between each other. In bilateral fittings, they create a virtual four-microphone network.

e2e wireless creates a virtual microphone network.

  1. For hearing aids with two microphones such as Pure binax, Carat binax, Motion binax, and two-microphone Insio binax models, e2e wireless creates a virtual eight-microphone network.

2. For hearing aids with one microphone such as single-microphone Insio binax models, e2e wireless creates a virtual four-microphone network.

Binax: Outperforming normal hearing – with minimum power consumption.

 

These virtual microphone networks provide a heightened sensitivity of the acoustic environment: Siemens call this “High Definition Sound Resolution” or HDSR.

HDSR is the basis for the binax features that offer an exceptional binaural listening experience. In fact, HDSR is so powerful that certain binax hearing aids have been clinically proven to allow wearers to hear in cocktail-party like situations even better than their normal hearing counterparts.*

What’s more, this outstanding hearing technology is incredibly energy efficient. While providing outstanding HDSR, the revolutionary e2e wireless technology is, by far, the industry’s most energy-efficient binaural audio transmission technology.

As a result, all binax features – binaxFocus, binaxSound, and binaxGuide – can be engaged automatically and as often as necessary to offer the best binaural listening experience ever, without compromising battery life.

Spatial SpeechFocus™ automatically focuses on the main speech source – be it from the front, back or even sides – while at the same time attenuating noise from other directions. It is automatically activated as soon as a car situation is detected.

Binax Focus

Binax Focus’ narrow directionality automatically focuses on the speaker immediately in front of the wearer. It is able to narrow the beam of the directional microphone and to help wearers understand speech in noise. In fact, clinical studies have shown that narrow directionality is so effective that it allows users to understand speech better than those with normal hearing in situations like cocktail parties.*

Binax Sound

Being outdoors on a windy day often means annoying wind noise for wearers of traditional hearing instruments. Thanks to binaxSound’s eWindScreen binaural, wearers will always maintain natural spatial awareness and optimum listening comfort – no matter how windy the environment.

binaxSound continually monitors both hearing instruments and strategically uses eWindScreen™ binaural when wind is detected to transmit audio signals from the side with the better sound quality to the other ear. Thanks to HDSR, unmatched spatial awareness is maintained. Additionally, binaxSound’s eWindScreen binaural preserves a high level of sound comfort – even in the most difficult windy situations.

Intelligent audio data exchange for the best possible sound: binaxSound replaces the inferior audio signal with the better audio signal.

Binax Guide

Even the smartest hearing instruments won‘t be able to know how the wearer wants to hear all the time. binaxGuide’s spatial Configurator enables wearers to temporarily override their automatic hearing instrument settings in unique listening situations. So they can decide how they want to hear. This offers wearers the most individual binaural hearing experience available.

As an addition to automatic functions that adapt to changing acoustic environments, spatial Configurator empowers wearers to take control of how and what they want to hear. They can individually adjust the span of their directional microphone focus beams, and decide how much of their environment they want to hear.

Spatial Configurator also gives wearers the ability to indicate the direction of where their microphones should be focused – the front, the back or even the sides.

Insio binax – (ITE) In The Ear Hearing Aids

Minimized design, maximised performance.Signia Insio

Until today, wearers of traditional custom hearing aids always had to decide between technology and size: Tiny, discreet hearing instruments could not be equipped with many technological features, while high-tech custom instruments used to sit visibly in the ear. Now with Insio binax custom hearing aids, we managed to narrow this gap. In order to limit the instruments’ critical length, we rotated the receiver. This gained us space and allowed us to optimally position the components. Now, an improved wireless coil could be moved closer to the receiver. An electromagnetic shield protects the components against interference. As a result, the hearing aids can be built smaller and more compact than ever before and even provide enhanced functionality.
