Updated: Dec 1, 2023

Rexton was bought by WSA Audiology which owns Widex and Signia hearing aids. The move to acquire Rexton was strategic and commercially driven. WSA Audiology rebrands Signia technology for the mid to low-end of the consumer market. That's why Rexton initially focused on the US low-end market as well as several developing nations such as South Africa, Turkey, South American markets and so on. In a new strategy, WSA is gradually introducing Rexton to the UK and other developed markets as a no-frill solution for budget-sensitive customers.


Rexton hearing aids are available in battery-powered as well as rechargeable versions. They are Bluetooth-enabled, built-in AI Assistant (artificial intelligence) that allows minor adjustments done by the user on the go, and with a portable power pack charger. Rexton Bi-Core series is slick, undoubtedly the smallest rechargeable RIC and besides Signia the only hearing aid that offers tinnitus notch therapy.
