Widex Hearing AidsBy Frankie Goodman 27th July 2020 Always Hear
Widex hearing aids are renowned to be stylish and discreet hearing aids. In order to meet its customers’ needs, Widex is constantly breaking new ground and making advances in the field of hearing aid technology.
Widex is one of the world’s most popular hearing aid brands. Known for its advanced hearing aid technology, Widex was founded more than 60 years ago in Denmark by the Tøpholm and Westermann families. In March 2019, relatives of the company’s original founders merged Widex with Sivantos, another Big Six hearing aid manufacturer. The new combined company is called WS Audiology and is now the third-largest hearing aid company in the world. Widex brand hearing aids specialise in innovative ways to deliver the best possible sound quality and performance in real-life situations, like noise.
MOMENT is the latest hearing aid family from Widex. Released in March 2020, MOMENT features “ultrafast” ZeroDelay™ and PureSound™ technologies to deliver “the most pure, natural sound ever.”
Select styles offer Made-for-iPhone connectivity, with Android ASHA connectivity on the way. MOMENT uses machine learning to allow the wearer to personalize and optimize their sound settings in any listening environment, to increase listening comfort and sound quality. This proprietary Widex feature is called SoundSense Learn.
Found in the MOMENT smartphone app, SoundSense Learn lets the wearer select their environment and listening goals, then listen and compare two sound profiles, and choose one they like best. Based on the wearer’s choices, the hearing aid learns what settings they like and improves their hearing experience in real time. This Widex-exclusive feature allows the wearer more control even in the most difficult listening environments and offers the hearing care professional insights into their patients’ sound preferences to further enhance treatment. The Widex MOMENT smartphone app offers a variety of control options in addition to SoundSense learn, including advanced control for streaming, volume and programs, directional focus, and more.
Hearing aids can last anywhere from three years to seven — for some people, even longer. Variables affecting this lifespan include how well the instrument is built, how well it’s maintained, and how much wear and tear it experiences being worn in your ear for many hours a day.
