Widex Digital Hearing Aids

Evoke Beyond Super models

Widex are recognised globally as a premium hearing device manufacturer. They are famous for delivering high-quality hearing aids with outstanding sound. The Widex sound is famous across the hearing aid profession and it is said that an experienced Widex hearing aid user will never be happy with any other hearing aid.

Widex are one of the very few privately-held hearing aid companies, and the business is still owned by the two families of the founders. Widex merged with Sivantos the owners of the Signia brand in 2018 and they formed the new brand WS Audiology. They are committed to continuing both the Widex brand and the Signia brand moving forward. Based in Denmark they are ranked in the top 6 of the world’s hearing device manufacturers. 

Widex Hearing Aid Prices

Widex hearing aid prices range between £1100 to £2150 depending on technology level. Our outstanding care and service package remains the same no matter what technology is purchased. We also offer Real Ear Measurements with every hearing aid we fit, no matter the technology level. You can see our hearing aid package prices here.

Real Ear Measurements

Real Ear Measurements are the only way that hearing aid function can be verified in the ear. It allows us to clearly see what the hearing aid is doing, and to make changes if needed. It is the best practice process to ensure your hearing aid is delivering exactly what it should be.

Widex have always been at the forefront of the development of hearing aid technology. They were the first company to deliver a fully digital in the ear aid to the market in 1995. They also won the European Inventor award in 2012 for their CAMISHA technology (Computer-Aided Manufacturing of Individual Shells for Hearing Aids) which is now used by every hearing aid manufacturer. This involves using 3D laser modelling to create an accurate model of a person’s ear to ensure a perfect fitting. They are also the first brand to introduce cloud-based machine learning features in their hearing aids. 

They are also well known for the quality and reliability of their hearing aids, their hearing devices are famously built to last. Widex hearing aid platforms usually come with four levels of technology. They tend to identify their hearing device platforms with a name and a number, the number designates the technology level of the hearing aids. In that context, the 440 is the flagship hearing aid range and the 110 is the basic hearing aid range. Let's take an overview look at their latest technology.

Widex Evoke Hearing Aids

Evoke Hearing Aids

The Evoke is the latest top of the range hearing aids from Widex. The Evoke platform or E-Platform is the first-ever range of hearing aids with machine learning capabilities. Although, the machine learning feature is only available on The Evoke Fusion 2 which is a direct connection or Made For iPhone hearing aid. In essence, it is one of the latest Bluetooth enabled hearing aids just like the Widex Beyond before it. Widex says that the Evoke begins the era of intelligent hearing, where the quality of your listening experience will evolve in real-time and real life. With machine learning enabled, the Evoke range will continue to learn from you (and millions of others) as you use them so that you will hear sound perfectly.

The Evoke hearing aids evolve in real life to keep getting smarter.

Widex new SoundSense Technology means that every time you use EVOKE hearing aids, they evolve in their function. That's why they call them the world's first smart hearing aid. That’s because when you (and others across the world) personalise your listening experience, EVOKE learns from different situations and your inputs. Widex uses anonymous data from your changes to create a better listening experience for everyone. That means that the hearing aids you buy will be better tomorrow than they were today. 

Widex Evoke Machine Learning

 

Machine Learning Hearing Aids

The Evoke range is the very first range of hearing aids to take advantage of machine learning. As more and more people use the system, powerful machine learning systems will crunch the data to understand what changes are best for differing sound situations. As the system works, the findings will be used for new settings on the Evoke range that are automatically pushed out as new firmware updates. In this way, your input with the Evoke app will mean that your hearing aids will perform better as time goes on. 

Two New Sound Classes and Two New Programmes

Widex introduced sound classes with the Unique hearing aid platform, with the Evoke they have added new Social and Music sound classes in response to what they have learned about the changing needs of hearing aid users. The new Social sound class bridges the gap between their Party and Quiet classes. It is designed to give the best sound in smaller social gatherings.

They have been very clever with the new music sound class, it changes to accommodate different styles of music: Contemporary and Classical. The Evoke also includes two new programs, an Impact program for listening in challenging situations, and they have re-introduced their dedicated Comfort program which they removed on the Unique.

Evoke Hearing Aid Types & Sizes

Widex Evoke hearing aidsThere are several sizes of behind the ear model and three in the ear models available. The Passion is the slim, attractive behind the ear receiver-in-canal model and is suitable for most hearing losses. It has no manual controls so can only be adjusted by remote control or app.

The Fusion is the larger, more powerful behind the ear model which also features a push-button for program changing. The Fusion 2 is the Made For iPhone hearing aid model which will give you access to the machine learning feature. The Fashion comes in three types, the Fashion mini which is a discrete mini-BTE, the Fashion, which covers hearing loss down to severe and the Fashion Power which covers hearing losses down to severe to profound.

Of the three in the ear models, one is the standard sized in-the-ear, one is the CIC or completely-in-the-canal. The smallest is the CIC-M which is Widex's equivalent of an IIC or invisible-in-the-canal. Being so small, some features had to be cut from this model, mainly anything requiring wireless communication which this aid cannot fit in.

Beyond Hearing Aids

Widex Beyond Hearing Aid

The Beyond was their first-ever Made For iPhone hearing aid. It is a slightly altered Fusion device based on the Unique technology, and it has three different radios onboard, the one for Widex Link, a telecoil and the new radio for direct iPhone connection making it possible to stream music and conduct phone calls directly to the hearing aid without any intermediary device. Widex Products are famous for their sound quality, now it appears that sound quality extends to the best sound Made for iPhone. The device is slightly longer than the original Fusion but it is thinner, it also has a new button. 

Beyond Hearing Aid Technology Levels

The Beyond at present appears to be only a Fusion type hearing aid and it has been introduced as part of the Widex Unique family, however, it will be interesting to see how and if Widex expands the range beyond just the initial offering. The Beyond is available in a 440, 330, 220 and 110 version in line with their usual technology level offers.

The Beyond App

User Fine Tuning?

Widex have also introduced a smartphone app with the Beyond which is available on ios and will soon be available on Android. The Beyond app seems to have the usual features that are available with Made For iPhone devices generally, you can set geo locations for different sound programmes and make changes to how the hearing aids are working on the go. However, there also seems to be an element of self fine-tuning on the app, whereby users can actually change the frequency response of the hearing aids. They are calling this feature the Preference Control and it seems to break down frequencies into three bands, Bass, Middle and Treble. It is interesting to see manufacturers begin to hand over this type of control to users. It means that you can have some control over how the hearing aid actually works as you change the sound settings.  

Beyond App personalisation

While Widex has now introduced a 2.4ghz Bluetooth radio to the Beyond for the connection to the smartphone, it has retained both the WidexLink and a telecoil on the hearing devices. 

Beyond from Widex

Widex Link

Retaining the Widex Link makes sense for several reasons. The first being, that it is still, without doubt, the single best system available for streaming high-quality audio. The second is that it will mean that any Widex users who upgrade their devices to the Beyond will still be able to use their Dex accessories. Retaining a T-Coil also makes some sense, the T-Coil system is making a huge resurgence in the United States and many in the UK and Ireland are used to using the T-Coil in public places. 

As we discovered retaining the WidexLink radio also ensured that all the inter ear features that Widex has become famous for also continue to work even if you are streaming audio to the hearing aids. The inter ear features, in particular, the inter ear compression ensure that Widex hearing aids work as well as they do and sound so natural.
