Siemens Smart Hearing Aid Featured on NewsWatch Television

“Siemens binax hearing aids” were featured on the January 30th episode of NewsWatch as part of its monthly Tech Report, which takes a look at the latest and coolest technology products and services available to consumers. Scott Steinberg, a special reporter for NewsWatch and a technology expert, conducted the review of the hearing aid and accompanying app, and shared with viewers how they built a smart hearing aid.
According to the Center for Hearing and Communication, out of 360 million people in the United States, 12 percent have significant hearing loss. That statistic means there are approximately 38 million people in need of a modern hearing aid. Siemens Hearing Instruments, which is headquartered in Erlangen, Germany, recognized this need and built a smart hearing aid called binax.
binax hearing aids are small, discreet, and contain the world’s first binaural technology. This technology helps people hear and process sounds with both ears—the same way natural hearing works. It also assesses the wearer’s acoustic situation, suppresses noise going on around them that they don’t want to hear, and focuses in on speech or other sounds that they do. So this technology not only helps people hear well, it helps them hear really well, especially in challenging environments like crowded restaurants and cocktail parties.
There’s an app that works in conjunction with binax that allows the wearer to adjust the volume of their hearing aid and select what kind of environment they’re in, from noisy to universal. Even better, the app is free for iOS and Android users to download.
