Widex: “The Natural Choice for you”
Widex was founded in Denmark in 1956 by Christian Topholm and Erik Westermann. Widex developed the first digitally programmable hearing aid with a remote control in 1988, and the first fully digital in-the-ear hearing aid in 1995. Widex values finding ‘green’ solutions to hearing loss and is the first CO2 neutral hearing aid manufacturer with their environmentally-friendly headquarters in Denmark, where research, development, and production take place.
What we like about Widex:
Their most recent hearing aid platform, “Moment,” launched in spring 2020, and has four different technology levels. Their new revolutionary technology is equipped with game changing ultra-fast processors to deliver the most pure, natural sound ever. Typically, sound processed in a hearing aid reaches the ear drum later than sound heard directly. And when these two “out of sync” signals mix, you hear an artificial sound. The ultra-fast signal processing removes the delay, delivering sound so pure and natural sounding you’ll forget you’re wearing a hearing aid.
The Moment hearing aid comes in zinc-air (disposable) battery models, and a rechargeable model, and is currently the smallest lithium-ion rechargeable receiver-in-the-canal style hearing aid available on the market.
Widex offers quality sound
Because of their great sound quality, Widex has long been thought to be the choice product for musicians, and we have had a lot of positive feedback around the way these hearing aids process and amplify music. Their premium Moment hearing aid now features two music programs – for classical and contemporary music.
Widex is generally our go-to product for people who have tinnitus. The Widex Zen Therapy option gives many tinnitus masking sounds to choose from, including their patented fractal tones, which we have found to be very effective for tinnitus habituation.
The Moment product line is currently iPhone compatible and will soon be android compatible. We love the Widex Moment app. It allows a lot of flexibility for the user in terms of setting the microphone directionality and the ability to independently change low, mid and high frequency amplification. The Widex Moment app also has a feature called SoundSense Learn, which uses machine learning to allow the hearing aid user to create personal programs in real time. We have a guide for iOS Bluetooth Connectivity for those who have questions about connection with their iPhones.
