Doesn’t work if other Bluetooth devices are connected

I like the idea of this app but it is almost worthless to me. Whenever I go to use it I’m told that it can’t connect if there is another Bluetooth device connected to my phone. I have a watch which is always connected to my phone via Bluetooth, so this app never works. Alternately I would have to go into settings and disconnect my watch every time I want to use this app to adjust my hearing aids. It is easier to just use the buttons on the aids to change the volume or select a different program, although I can only access programs 1-4 with the buttons - not 5&6.

Could be more intuitive

With no guidance or familiarity with apps in general, it’s challenging to figure out some simple things, like turning your hearing aids on or off with the app. Text should accompany symbols, i.e “Your Aids are On, on standby”, etc. For example, I did not know the sound made when hitting the mid volume mark is the only sound feedback you get. Shouldn’t I hear a sound for each increment that reflects the volume level? It seems like there are many areas that could easily be enhanced in terms of app feedback through the hearing aids. I unndersrand that Seimens makes money on hardware and nothing on software. Better just not to have an app.

For some reason, the app stopped working. The pairing instructions are vague and need more detail. I was able to get connected again by selecting the app and reinstalling it. It feels like beta or even alpha software, but again maybe it is not designed to work with my model.

The app appears unfinished, like development has stopped. Interface on iPhone x looks amateurish. It is hard to tell from the docs whether this app is supposed to work with signia insio 5 px. Maybe it isn’t.

I am a new wearer and have ordered a remote also. I am wondering if Signia would just rather sell an expensive piece of hardware rather than develop software for a smartphone. I would like to have both. There should be a comparison of features available on the remote ad opposed to the app.

Great Product! Good App

The Sigma products I have a great! They changed my life!
Maybe it’s just me, but the app is a little difficult to understand, even after I’ve read the instructions. I don’t change the settings, but when I replace the batteries (about every seven days for ea one, but I wear them 18+ hours a day) the app always reads that the volume levels are too low on the hearing aids. I don’t know why. I replace the batteries, put the hearing aids in both ears and open the app to make sure the master volume is in the center of the control slide. After getting the message that the volume is too low, I again turn up the volume on the aids. I don’t understand how the volume gets too low when I change batteries. Other than that, the App is great! I can discreetly and remotely change programs, etc. Thanks!
