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 Motion 13 1NX offers a host of sound processing features including:
- 16 sound processing channels – providing a clear reproduction of incoming sound
- 4 listening programmes – can be configured to your unique listening needs
- Automatic Directionality (using 2 microphones) – helps to reduce background noise behind and beside you giving better to focus on what's in front of you
- Noise reduction – enhancing listening comfort
- Advanced feedback management - helps prevent unwanted whistling
- Direct streaming for iPhone calls (controlled via the Signia App)
If you have sent us your audiogram in advance; the Signia Motion 13 1NX 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 4 listening programs will be set for:
- Universal – general one to one listening or for quieter environments
- Noisy environment
- Phone – acoustic phone
If you wish to have telecoil pick up (a loop setting) – we must be informed prior to or at the time of your order; as the telecoil component will need to be added to your hearing aid/s.
The Signia Motion 13 1NX can be ordered in beige or silver. 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 thin tubing should sit close to the side of the head, and when in place correctly, offers a discreet fitting. The tubings have numbers printed onto them – designating red for the right-sided tubings and ear and blue for left sided tubings.
A multi-function switch on the spine of the Motion can be configured in various ways, but as standard we set it to work as a volume control (short press up & down to increase / decrease the volume) and a longer press up & down to change between listening programmes.
An invisible water-resistant coating has been added to the internal components. This helps to repel moisture, and prolongs its working life. It has an ‘IP68’ protection rating. Devices with this international standard rating are deemed resistant enough to submersion in water up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to 30 minutes.
Dimensions: 30mm x 10mm x 8mm (Height, Depth, Spine width)

How to buy
Not sure about buying a hearing aid online? We keep the process straight-forward, and here's what happens:
Select which ear you wish to wear the hearing aid on (left / right / both); the colour and how to want the aid to be powered - and 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 Motion? The following items will need to be replaced:
- Battery:budget 3.5 batteries per month (6 batteries in a pack)
- 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)
All the assistance you need with your hearing aid is available by videos through this link but here are the most important ones for you:
How do I turn the Signia Motion On/off? There is no on/off switch, just insert battery, close / open battery door.
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.
