Widex is the world’s sixth largest hearing aid manufacturer and is one of the only privately owned manufacturers. The company was founded in 1956 by the Tøpholm and Westermann families, who still own and run the company.
Widex sound has a very unique premise, using very low knee points focusing on bringing up the soft sounds of speech for better clarity in quiet and noise. The Widex sound is one where existing Widex users rarely change brands and usually choose to be fitted with an upgraded latest release Widex aid as time goes on.
Widex technology is fully compatible with wireless streaming including made-for-iPhone devices, a TV streamer and a CROS aid which allows someone to hear from a completely unaidable ear over on the other side! Widex also has a very strong focus on helping with tinnitus relief with a very unique and customisable tinnitus masking system.
The most recent and exciting innovation from Widex is the WIDEX MOMENT. Widex looked at how sound could be processed in a hearing aid and developed a device that gives the user an experience that is as close to natural hearing as you can get. The WIDEX MOMENT has been described as “the first hearing aid that doesn’t sound like a hearing aid”. Widex has changed how their hearing aids produce the pattern of sound with a revolutionary platform. This is what enables their devices to deliver the purest, natural sound ever. Typically, sound processed in a hearing aid hits the eardrum later than direct sound, causing distorting artefacts and a metallic effect. Not with Widex Moment!
Available in the world’s smallest lithium-ion RIC device and other RIC and CUSTOM styles for comfort and ease of use. WIDEX MOMENT™ needs to be experienced to be believed.
Widex have recently built a new headquarters in Allerød Municipality, Denmark, north of Copenhagen which is just incredible to see – it is really a ‘green site’. It uses multiple natural energy sources to reduce environmental impacts. This includes using groundwater for cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. Widex also placed an energy-generating wind turbine next to the building.
Widex have also expanded into having Retail market share buying independent branches and rebranding them to Bloom Hearing Specialists across Australia.
In close collaboration with international audiological researchers and specialists, the company has developed a wide range of digital hearing aids, including the world’s first 100% digital in-the-ear hearing aid in 1995. In 1990, they began using a patented Camisha technology which allows custom made hearing aids and moulds to be done through computer modelling and laser technology.
