Rexton Hearing Aids – Completely Generic Yet Extraordinary Merit

Rexton hearing aids

What are Rexton Hearing Aids?

There are many different types and brands of hearing aids available. Like Signia Hearing Aids, they are hearing aids with the leading innovating technology. Also similar to Signia Hearing Aids, they are produced by the same company – Sivantos.

Rexton hearing aids are the generic brand of Signia. Generic brands sometimes give us this feeling that it doesn’t work quite as well as name brands, but that is far from reality. Rexton hearing aids have the same hardworking engineers producing them as Signia does.

The biggest difference between generic (Rexton) versus name brand (Signia) is the capabilities that are available – not how well they function. Here is a list of what to expect from this article:

  • Information about Rexton Hearing Aids and comparing them to Signia Hearing Aids
  • Why generic is sometimes a better option for you
  • New news regarding Sivantos

Why go Generic? Are you Unsure if You Should Choose Generic or a Name-Brand?

I recently read an article by Jill Nystul called “Generic vs. Name Brand: Which Should You Buy?” In Jill’s article, she is referring to medications, foods, and cleaning products; Nonetheless, the facts provided follow the same basis in regards to hearing aids.

Pricing

In most cases, generic brands are cheaper than their name-brand counterpart. For example, the Rexton Stellar 40 is $203 cheaper than the Signia Charge & Go 3X. Sometimes price is different based on ingredients, parts used, or difference in capabilities. We can see that in the pricing difference with Signia and Rexton hearing aids.

Money alone can be reason enough for people to go with generic brands. I know even saving a dollar, I feel like that is a win. I also know you may have the same thought process as my husband, who says, “if you pay for something, might as well get the best.” It depends on what your lifestyle is like when making this choice.

Features

As you saw above in each table, the only difference between Signia and Rexton Hearing Aids was the ‘audiologist app adjustments.’ This means that any adjustments your audiologists need to make can be made over an app, so no office visit is required.

With Rexton hearing aids, this option is not available, so any adjustments would require an in-person visit to their office. Whereas Signia hearing aids, you can stay home or at work having those adjustments made for you.

Likewise, making this choice will depend on your lifestyle. Do you have the time to make office visits when necessary? This ties in with the pricing – convenience. It is the same way with buying food that is precut for you.

Quality

As I said before, the quality of both hearing aid brands is exceptional. They do Rexton Stellar 40 is a step down in technology from the Rexton 80 & 60. Similarily, Signia Charge & Go 3X is a step down from Signia 5X & 7X; here is where you can find a chart showing Signia comparisons.

To assist with your choice here is a simple list of 3 various lifestyles and what hearing aids are recommended for them.

Less active lifestyles who are sometimes in noisy environments.
