How changing the clocks affects our body’s natural rhythm
With the clocks going forward at the weekend, we look at what this hour shift means for our bodies. While it may not seem like it would have much impact, it can still take some time to readjust your sleeping (and even eating), habits.
Signia hearing aids deliver the sound that nature intended
The latest generation of Signia hearing aids with direct audio streaming from iPhone and TV improve your hearing experience to a remarkable new level and preserve the familiar sound of your own voice – thanks to the world's first Own Voice Processing (OVP).
Going out, playing sports, listening to music – if we can no longer hear well, we usually stop enjoying recreational activities. Many of us then withdraw more and more from social life when they cannot hear well. The new Signia hearing aids ensure that people who are hard of hearing can regain the ability to effortlessly understand their conversation partners and enjoy music.
Following our previous blogpost about how hearing aids help you tackle challenging listening environments with ease, we cover more high tech features that address specific situations like gusts of wind and echoes.
The Signia myHearing App is now even more powerful in providing you with all the support tools you and your hearing care professional need to guide you through a successful period of getting used to new hearing aids.
The Noise Spectrum: Sounds You Didn’t Know Damage Your Hearing
Hearing is an important part of everyday life, yet most people don’t realize when they are damaging their ears. Causes of hearing loss include infections, aging, and brain injury, but one of the most common is noise exposure. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) can develop after one occurrence of extreme noise exposure or after listening to very loud sounds over time.

Different groups of hair cells interpret different sound frequencies. Over time, if enough of these hair cells are damaged or broken, hearing loss results.
