Styletto 5AX Rechargeable Digital Hearing Aid
The Styletto rechargeable hearing aids range by Signia is as incredible as it sounds! Designed with an even more discreet fit and a modern design, it delivers an outstanding speech clarity and opens a new era of hearing aids wear to match your lifestyle.
With an award winning design for its amazing speech clarity called the Augmented Experience, the Styletto 5AX really focuses on the voice and the speech to give you the best hearing experience via its 32 sound processing channels. Thanks to its directional microphones and motion sensing, your hearing aid will know that you are moving. It will scan the surroundings to find the voice again and adapt the sound for you to hear it in any backgrounds.
On average, you will get 17 hours of power and 5 hours of streaming. A 30 minutes fast charge will give you an extra 5 and a half hours of power. You can connect the Styletto 5AX to the Signia Streamline Mic if you are listening to a lecture or attending a guided tour for example. You can also connect the Styletto 5AX to the Signia Streamline TV and enjoy watching your favourites programs and podcasts directly through your hearing aids, both thanks to the Bluetooth connectivity.
You may already have a hearing test audiogram, or you may need some support to understand the extent of your hearing loss, or which hearing aid to choose. Whatever your situation, talk to us about how we can help and book a free consultation with one of our audiologists through this link: audiology consultation
This hearing aid comes with access to the free Signia App, meaning the audiologist can make adjustments where needed, all from the comfort of your home. You can also update the aids yourself, using your Smartphone, where you can adjust not only the volume but also the listening programme. The Signia MiniPocket remote control is also available to purchase and use instead of the App to adjust the volume and help you change between programmes.
Available in 4 modern colours, (Cosmic Blue/Rose Gold, Snow White/Silver, Black/Graphite and Black/Silver), including a pocket sized charger that simply sits on a charging pad, the Signia Styletto5AX hearing aid tackles all of the real life acoustic challenges of our modern world.
N.B.: This model requires programming and configuration. Delivery can take between 5 and 7 working days
Best suited for mild to moderate hearing losses – although do feel free to send us a copy of your hearing test results as more moderate-severe losses may be able to be accommodated.
The Signia Styletto 5AX offers a host of sound processing features including:
- 32 sound processing channels – providing a clear reproduction of incoming sound
- 6 listening programmes – can be configured to your unique listening needs
- Auto Ecoshield - offers a real time analysis of the acoustic to cancel any echoes and blurred sounds wherever you are
- Award winning design for a brilliant speech clarity
If you have sent us your audiogram in advance; the Signia Styletto 5AX will be pre-programmed before dispatch with the start-up amplification profile based on your audiogram.
If you do not have an audiogram; our default setting, suitable for a mild to moderate, high-frequency hearing loss is used to create the start-up profile.
Unless otherwise discussed with our audiologists, the listening programs will be set for:
- Noisy environment
- Tinnitus program available on request
The Signia Styletto 5AX can be ordered in 4 modern colours: Cosmic Blue/Rose Gold, Snow White/Silver, Black/Silver and Black/Graphite. Its slim and sleek design fits snugly and discreetly behind your ear, with a thin silicon-plastic tubing directing the amplified sound into the ear canal. A dome, (also called eartip), is attached to the end of the thin tubing, helping the thin tubing sit comfortably in the ear canal. The thin tubing should sit close to the side of the head, and when in place correctly, offers a discreet fitting. The tubes have coloured numbers printed onto them – designating red for the right-sided tubing and ear and blue for left sided tubing.

How to buy
Select which ear you wish to wear the hearing aid on (left / right / both); the colour and then, add to basket. Check-out and purchase with Visa / Mastercard or PayPal (where there is a 'Pay-in-3' option for an interest-free 3 month split payment plan)
Your order will be posted directly to you via Royal Mail for a 30 day home trial. Everything you need to try the aid for this period is included.
Many customers have a copy of their audiogram (hearing test result on a graph) from an NHS appointment or from one of the high street stores and will email us a copy before ordering - firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the hearing aid is appropriate for the hearing loss, we use the audiogram results to program the initial settings of the hearing aid.
Dont worry if an audiogram is not available; you can begin with our standard setting – geared to suit a mild to moderate, mainly high frequency hearing loss. This is the type of hearing loss we commonly see in those with age-related or noise-induced hearing losses.
Another option is to complete the online hearing check, which, if completed as instructed, gives a reasonable estimate of someone’s middle and high frequency hearing: https://www.hearingdirect.com/pages/hearing-test.
If you wish for your online hearing check result to be used with your order you will need to let us know before or just after your order is placed.
Please talk to us if you need anything else regarding the set up further customised. We are real people, and would love to help provide the best possible starting point for you.
Once you've received the hearing aid it's a case of trying out the physical fit and the sound. If you need any adjustments, some can be done remotely if you've downloaded the Signia App – or we can reprogramme in house if the aid is posted back. Email or call us and we will help immediately or set up a time to discuss your requirements in more detail. If you choose to send the hearing aid back to us in the post for reprogramming we will extend your 30 day trial by a week to account for postage times.
If the sound or physical fit of the product is not to your satisfaction, our 30 day money back guarantee is a no quibble policy.
How much will it cost to run the Signia Styletto 5AX? The following items will need to be replaced:
- Signia Sleeves Domes:change the dome every month on average
- Signia MiniReceiver 3.0 Standard Power:change tubing every 3-4 months
- Signia MiniReceiver Wax Guards: change the wax guards as needed
How do I turn the Signia Styletto 5AX On/off? It switches on automatically when taken out of the charging case and switches off automatically when they are placed in the charging case. Have a look at this video to see how this works.
With all rechargeable hearing aids putting the hearing aids in the charger and then removing them will put them in pairing mode (this is the same as opening and closing the battery door in the videos)
How do I work the controls? There is a multi-function button to change between 2 settings. A short press up or down will change volume, a 1-2 second longer press will change programme. The settings can also be changed via the Signia App so you don’t have to touch the hearing aid at all; or you can use the Signia miniPocket remote control if you don’t wish to use a smartphone App.
How do I clean the hearing aid? The most important part of maintenance involves cleaning the tubing and dome. These have a very narrow and small opening where the amplified sound comes out, and it is very easy for this to become blocked with wax, even after first use. The domes and tubings are not included in the hearing aid warranty as they are considered replaceable accessories. Domes can be removed from the tubings (pull off) and cleaned separately – taking extreme care to push back onto the tubing securely, as shown on this video. The cleaning wire is a useful tool to use to thread all the way through the tubing (once removed by twisting it off the top of the hearing aid) to ensure no moisture / wax build up.
Signia has put together lots of videos to help their customers with the after care of their hearing aid. They are all available here should you wish to watch them. You can also watch this video on how to replace the eartip and this video showing how to clean the Styletto AX
