History of Siemens hearing aids
Siemens hearing technology has been helping the world to hear – for more than 130 years.
We have shown a particularly high level of commitment in the field of audiology. With one major goal: We would like to contribute our solutions to better hearing and increase the quality of life for people with hearing impairments. That was the case back in the times of Werner von Siemens, and it is still the case today.
Telephone receiver with substantially improved transmission quality
People with hearing impairments were able to understand a conversation better over this telephone developed by Werner von Siemens.
Electric hearing testers
Siemens (or rather the predecessing company Reiniger, Gebbert & Schall) makes audiometry electric.
First steps in the development of electrical hearing aids
Louis Weber (Siemens&Halske) starts the development of the first Siemens device for hearing impaired.
First serial production of hearing aids.
First pocket-sized hearing aid.
First behind-the-ear hearing aid.
First in-the-ear hearing aid.
First remote control in the world of hearing technology.
Digital hearing aid featuring two microphones.

German President Joachim Gauck presented the team of researchers from the University of Oldenburg and Siemens the prestigious “Deutscher Zukunftspreis“ (German Future Award) for their development of binaural hearing aid technology.
The new generation of BestSound Technology – clinically proven* to outperform normal hearing in challenging environments.
*Two independent clinical studies have shown that Siemens hearing instruments with binaural processing provide better than normal hearing capabilities in certain demanding listening environments.
Binaural OneMic directionality
A world’s first: The pioneering binaural OneMic directionality enables binaural directionality in custom hearing aids with one microphone such as CICs.
