Signia Silk Nx Invisible Hearing Aid Review | Best Invisible Hearing Aids? Dr. Cliff Olson, Audiologist and founder of Applied Hearing Solutions in Anthem AZ reviews the Signia Silk Nx hearing aid.

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC) hearing aids are by far the most popular style of hearing aids on the market. However, recent consumer demand has forced hearing aid manufacturers to make their devices smaller and better performing than ever before.

Signia, formerly known as Siemens, recently introduced their Silk Nx line of Invisible Completely-In-Canal (CIC) hearing aids. I find these hearing aids impressive for 3 main reasons.

1. They are ready to wear – They do not require a custom ear mold impression. You instead use different size click sleeves to match your ear canal size. They are comfortable and make the devices nearly undetectable.

2. Wireless connectivity – These devices have the capability to connect wirelessly with many devices including phones, TVs, FM systems, computers, etc. All you need to use is the EasyTEK neckloop. They even have the ability to connect to the Silk CROS making them the smallest CROS option for individuals with single sided deafness (SSD).

3. Full-Featured Hearing Aids – These are not your cheap sound amplifiers that you find advertised on Facebook and Ebay. They are fully-customizable devices that have all the features of hearing aids significantly larger. They have Ear-to-Ear (e2e) capabilities allowing the devices to communicate with each other, helping you hear better in background noise.

As great as these devices appear to be, there are two things that might be an issue.

1. They aren’t custom – custom devices can fit all different sizes and shapes of ear canals. If you have odd shaped or extra large ear canals, these devices may not work for you.

2. They don’t have custom venting – The click sleeves don’ allow the capability to to control vent size which is critical to the performance of hearing aids with certain types of hearing loss. They only come in open or closed venting options.

Cons aside, these hearing aids are impressive. However, even the best hearing aids on the planet don’t matter unless you’ve had Real Ear Measurement performed on them. Don’t know what REMs are? Watch this video: https://youtu.be/cHR0Oa6I-wY

Fantastic review! I’ve been stuck on choosing between the Signia Silk Nx or the Signia Insio Nx in CIC. I’m 27 years old and I was born with mild hearing loss in both ears. I currently wear a 7 year old pair of Costco Resounds CICs that aren’t the greatest and I am in desperate need of a new pair hearing aids (avoiding anything bigger than a CIC). Which one would you suggest between the two? I’ve tried the Phonak Virto-B Titanium, but it was just too tinny/flat/distorted for me even after all the adjustments. I think the Insio Nx offers more for your hearing since it has additional features including Binaural OneMic directionality and windscreen. But would those additional features make a big difference? You should do a review of the Insio Nx!

Just tried the virto b90 itc, simply amazing. A shame the streaming box doesn’t look half as good as the signia neck streamer, which looks more like a sports tracker

Great review. I had CIC devices before – this looks like a great option. I think the click sleeves would work well for me.
