Founded in 1847 in Berlin, Siemens is one of the world’s oldest manufacturers of hearing aids. Siemens was the first to introduce the behind-the-ear hearing aid in 1959 and the in-the-ear hearing aid in 1966. Siemens was awarded the Gold Edison Award in 2015, for the binax hearing aid – the first hearing aid to outperform normal hearing in challenging noise situations.
Siemens is now a part of the Sivantos Group, a leader in the hearing aid industry. In 2016, Sivantos Group paired up Siemens with a new brand, Signia.
