Sivantos Hearing Aids
The foundational history of Sivantos hearing aids is shared by several hearing aid manufacturers that trace their roots back to Werner von Siemens, a telegraphic instrument manufacturer whose amplified telephone receiver from 1877 is considered the first hearing aid in history.
The first Siemens hearing devices sold as Sivantos hearing aids were the Phonophor, sold before World War II, followed by a behind-the-ear (BTE) device called the Auriculette, made of small, lightweight components that fit together in a single unit. The company’s first in-the-ear (ITE) device was the Siretta 339, released in 1966. These early successes allowed Sivantos to capture the European, North American, and Asian markets prior to the 1970s.
In the 21st century, Sivantos accelerated the development of smart products and applications with practical and convenient benefits for people struggling with hearing challenges, which includes technologies like Binax. The WS Audiology Group, established out of a merger of Sivantos and Widex in 2019, combined the innovative foundations of both companies, making them a premier large-scale, worldwide hearing aid manufacturing partnership.

Processing Technology by Sivantos
In order to mimic binaural hearing, Sivantos uses Binax processing technology, which involves the use of E2e wireless technology and eight microphones (four per hearing aid) to share and balance incoming sound data between the wearer’s two hearing aids.
To solve issues of sound quality and speech clarity, Binax uses Narrow Directionality, Spatial Speech Focus, eWindScreen binaural, and High Definition Sound Resolution to deliver a fuller, more natural sound picture.

Local Hearing Loss Journeys
"The staff were very professional and friendly and put my mind at ease"
"I remember feeling confused at the prospect of having a hearing loss. I had so many preconceived ideas about visiting an audiologist but my experience with West Coast Hearing & Balance Center has been 10 out of 10.
"They were competent and knew what they were doing"
“My hearing loss was getting worse over time and I got to the point where I just wanted to hear better again. My impression of West Coast Hearing & Balance Center was that they were competent
“It’s not your fault if you have a hearing loss, and you deserve to hear without having to ask people to repeat everything to you.”
My family has a history of hearing difficulties, with my grandmother being born deaf and several of my aunts and uncles struggling with hearing as well.
“The results have been much better than I ever could have imagined.”
I was advised to get my hearing checked, but my first experience left me feeling like I was being sold a package of goods. That all changed when I met Dr. Nelson. He is a true professional who explained everything and answered all my concerns, which made me feel confident in his care.
“My worries were quickly alleviated when I visited West Coast Hearing & Balance Center.”
I was very concerned about how I would appear to other people if I were to need a hearing aid. Would they see me as old or disabled? And the thought of being dependent on something to hear was daunting.
