Overview

Product Overview by Joan McKechnie (Audiologist)

Over the last 10 years, Hearing Direct has been selling hearing aids directly to customers and I’m excited to now be working in partnership with Signia Hearing, one of the world’s largest Hearing Aid manufacturers to bring their Signia Silk 1NX direct to you.

This in-the-ear product delivers a natural hearing experience with its discreet size, instant fit and good sound quality.  In most ears, it is difficult to see whilst still being very easy to use.  (The gallery of images has a shot of the Silk 1NX in my own ear, and have a look at the video on the right to see how easy it is to insert)

Before introducing the Silk 1NX to our website, a number of new and existing Hearing Direct customers took part in our own internal trials and based on their experiences I’m confident to now include this in our hearing aid portfolio.

One of the biggest advantages of this new device is that it can be controlled through an App on a smartphone (Apple and Android).  The App provides volume, tone and listening programme controls and a battery level check.  If you don’t have a smartphone, don’t worry, a pocket remote control can be purchased alongside the Silk 1NX.  

I love working with customers to make sure they choose the right hearing aid so please get in touch if you would like to discuss this product or indeed any aspect of your hearing care needs.

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 Silk 1NX offers a host of sound processing features including:  

  • 16 sound processing channels
  • 4 listening programmes
  • Noise reduction
  • Advanced feedback management

Initial sound set up

If you have sent us your audiogram in advance; the Silk 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 6 listening programs will be set for: 

  1. Universal – general listening 
  2. Noisy environment 
  3. Music 
  4. Phone


Overall volume levels and listening programmes are changed via the free to download Signia App. Changes to treble and bass boosting can also be done through the App. The optional MiniPocket remote control can adjust overall volume and change between listening programmes.

As one of the world’s smallest hearing aids, you can be confident that no one will notice you’re wearing them. The Signia Silk 1Nx is ready to wear on the spot thanks to its super-soft silicone sleeves that allow it to hide comfortably in your ear. 

The colour-coding of red for right and blue for left helps you to put the hearing aids in the correct ear easily; and there is a choice between a black or mocha coloured front. We find the black colour blends in well with the shadow of the ear canal.

A short pull-cord attached to the outer side of the hearing aid makes removing the Silk 1NX a simple task. 

Length: 15mm

Width: 4mm

Height (at battery end): 10mm

FAQs

Here's answers to the frequently asked questions about the Signia Silk 1Nx Digital Hearing Aid
How do I know if it will fit my ear?

The Signia Silk 1Nx is one of the world’s smallest instant fit hearing aids, and Signia report an extremely high rate of physical fitting success. But, if you’re not happy with the result in your own ear, our 30 day return period allows for a no-quibble full product refund. 

What if it doesn’t work for me?

If anything about the physical fitting or sound is not to your liking, you can return the Silk 1NX for a full refund within the first 30 days of receipt. Please do however feel free to contact us to see if the problem can be resolved with a remote fine tuning session arranged direct to your hearing aids via your Smartphone!

Should I get one or two?

If an evaluation by a hearing professional indicates that you have hearing loss in both ears, and especially where the degree of loss is similar, two hearing aids are usually recommended.  While it may be tempting to try to limit the cost by going with a single hearing aid, wearing just one hearing aid may not give you maximum benefit in some difficult listening situations.

How much are the running costs of the Silk?

The following items will need to be replaced on the Silk: 
Battery: budget 6-7 batteries per month (6 batteries in a pack).
Click Sleeve dome:  replace the dome every 8 weeks on average (6 domes in a pack).
Wax guard: change the wax guard every 8 weeks on average (8 in a pack).

How do I control the Silk?

There are no user controls on the Silk; but the free Signia App will allow access to change between the 4 listening settings; overall volume within those settings if need be, as well as make a change in the bass/treble balance. 

I don’t have a smartphone to download the App?

There is a small pocket remote control available instead of the App which will allow volume and programme changes. The remote control will need to be purchased separately. If ordered at the same time as the Silk, we can pair the remote control for you, but it is a straight-forward procedure to do this at home. You can have both the App and remote control on the same aids. 

How do I arrange a remote fine tuning session?

Email or call our audiologists (audiology@hearingdirect.com) and they will arrange this directly with you. A unique code is supplied to allow changes to be loaded into your hearing aids via your smartphone.  

How do I download the app?

Apple devices: The Signia app is compatible with all Apple devices with the iOS version 9.3 and higher and can be found on the app store.

Android devices: The Signia app is compatible with most of the Android (Android 5.0 and higher) devices and can be found on the app store.

The Signia App is required in order to switch between the 6 listening programmes and to change volume or adjust the bass/treble balance. If you do not wish to use the App, these changes can be made via a physical remote control – the ‘MiniPocket’ remote. Please note the Minipocket device will need to be purchased separately. 

How do I control the Silk?

If you do not wish to use an App, the Signia MiniPocket remote control is available as an optional accessory. Click here to buy.
