Methodology

Soundly is an independently owned hearing health research tool. Our reviews are conducted by hearing aid wearers and audiologists. We physically review the leading hearing aids on the market for sound quality, comfort, durability, and more. Our review process starts with hands-on unboxing and days, weeks, or months of wear. We also record live sound demos using a calibrated binaural microphone (read more here). We experiment with backend fitting software for prescription products and use test box measures to measure prescriptive accuracy and flexibility. Our work is funded through reader support. When you buy through our links, we may earn a commission. Read more about our story here.

PROFESSIONAL FITTING
No items found.

Signia Styletto hearing aids have a sleek appearance that looks more like consumer tech than a medical device.

5X is the second technology level available and comes with most of the core features available. The 5X has 32 channels of customization for your audiologist to work with and loses some ability to process high-frequency sounds. If you spend time in mid-sized groups and at home, this product is an excellent choice.

Pros 👍
  • Sleek product design
  • Bluetooth streaming enabled for iPhone and Android
  • Rechargeable

Cons 👎
  • No onboard pushbuttons (requires app or remote control changes)
  • Signia Styletto is a premium product at a premium price that may be out of budget for some
