The Siemens Aquaris is a BTE (behind the ear) hearing aid from Siemens and can use a variety of technologies from the 501 through to the latest Micon 7mi. The unique aspect of the Aquaris is that it is waterproof. Siemens do offer a range of other BTE hearing aids in these same technologies such as the Life, Motion and Pure but while these can be nano-coated to provide a high degree of protection from dirt, dust and moisture ingress none are completely waterproof.
The Aquaris marketing literature features a number of photos of people in swimming pools, and if swimming in your hearing aids is what you are after then it would seem that the Siemens Aquaris is right up your street. However, while this niche requirement may be attractive for a water-born few Siemens are at pains to point out that the Aquaris provides protection for the delicate electronics in more typically environments. For example if you are an active gardener, outdoor type or of a sport type you may well raise a sweat from time to time or be caught out in the ever-present British downpour. Moisture from these everyday sources can be enough to damage your hearing aid, so it now seems that the Aquaris is not just for the poolside few but could be the right product for a wide range of people and situations.
The balance is whether the modern day nano-coating will be sufficient for your needs. If it is then there seems to be little point to the Aquaris but if you can envisage yourself up to your ears in moisture (however caused) then this totally waterproof product from Siemens would be a very sensible purchase and potentially save the hassle and cost of hearing aid repair bills.
It is not the sleekest or more discrete design but it is not overly bulky and there had to be some compromise. The performance of the product can be all you need as it is available with top technology from a world leading hearing aid manufacturer. Ask your hearing aid audiologist whether they would see your lifestyle as appropriate for an Aquaris, then choose your technical specification and be able to enjoy your active lifestyle without limits.
