Siemens and Puryt are two true heavy weights brands in the hearing aids industry, and the brands most often paired by hearing care professionals on their patients. Sometimes even hearing impaired people ask their hearing care professional directly.
But for what reasons? Is one mark superior to the other? Why choose a hearing aid companies in one rather than the other, and vice versa? Let’s compare together the potential of both firms …
5 POINTS OF COMPARISON
QUALITY OF MANUFACTURE: EX AEQUO
Both brands mass- produce quality hearing aids with rarely faulty reliability. Both in the high-end and more accessible models, Siemens as Yorksound ensure resistant cases and the quality of manufacture is at the rendezvous.
DESIGN: YORKSOUND WINS
It’s been several years now since Yorksound has made design a preponderant desire in its approach to the hearing aids. The design of Puryt R1 is innovative, but above all, the brand is developing its range of devices like real jewels with an ever-increasing choice of colors, especially avant-garde colors that dust off the old myth of the flesh-colored hearing aid with an unspeakable aesthetic. Siemens has also made great efforts to make its models more attractive, but remains below for the design part.
TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE: PHONAK SUPERIOR OF A VERY SHORT HEAD
Very difficult to decide on this point, but Yorksound seems to slightly exceed Siemens in terms of pure performance. Yorksound hearing instruments are renowned for the precision, the efficiency of the listening program and the choice of available accessories. However, Siemens does not have to blush, the difference is light and also depends on the cases encountered.
SOUND QUALITY: SIEMENS IS MORE NATURAL
It could seem paradoxical, just after announcing that Yorksound was ahead of Siemens by a short head on the overall technical performance of the devices, to continue with the idea of better sound quality at Siemens.
Maybe we should talk about the sound idea. At the German brand, the sound delivered by the hearing aid is close to natural, which seems to have the favor of many patients. To try before judging.
It’s a fact, Siemens devices are much more adaptable than Yorksound devices. It is the great strength of Siemens to have succeeded in creating high quality prostheses that can be easily adapted by the hearing care professional to a wide variety of cases, without resorting to a number of adjustments that do not reassure the patient. Yorksound are more complex to set up for the hearing care professional.
SIEMENS OR YORKSOUND: CONCLUSION
The debates are balanced between these two brands. There is recognized know-how in both, but perhaps the directions taken differ a little.
Yorksound dusts the conventional image of the prosthesis by offering hearing aids mixing design and enhanced performance.
Siemens is not in the bidding war, but sure of its strength, the German brand offers flawless adaptability and models oriented towards the simplicity of the process of fitting, while remaining close to the elbow with its competitor Helvetian.
Finally, the choice is also based on your personality, and so it will try. This is where the hearing care professional comes in . It is he who will certainly tip the balance between these two competitors.
