Its ergonomic shape sits snugly and discreetly behind your ear, with a thin silicon-plastic tubing directing the amplified sound into the ear canal. A ‘dome’ is attached to the end of the thin tubing, helping the thin tubing sit comfortably in the ear canal.

The tubes have coloured numbers printed onto them – designating red for the right-sided tubing and ear and blue for left sided tubing.

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 - email@example.com.
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.

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 1X? The following items will need to be replaced:
- Dome:change the dome every month on average (10 domes in a pack)
- Tubing:change the tubing every 3-4 months (single tubings can be purchased, or in a pack of 5)
How do I turn the Signia Styeltto 1X On/off? They switch on and off automatically when taken out and put back in the charging case. Please have a look at this video
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 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. 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.
