Last week, Widex launched a new product for hearing on a cell phone. It is a small device with a headphone plug that plugs into the headphone jack of a cell phone. Then, the signal from the phone is sent wirelessly to both hearing aids. The sound quality is improved and it eliminates having to keep the phone pushed right up to the ear.
These devices are called Call-Dex and are extremely simple to operate and connect. They will ONLY work with Widex hearing aids.
Phonak has a similar device that called an Easy Call. This device needs to be paired using Bluetooth to the cell phone and sticks onto the back of any hearing aid.
These devices made by Phonak and Widex are available at Broadmead and Oak Bay Hearing Clinic.
