Hearing. The final frontier. Did you know that Widex invented the digital hearing aid? The technology is fascinating and invisible. Hearing aids restore your (unknown) superpowers, your sense of space, your feeling for the room.
Imagine looking like a viking, carrying around a hearing trumpet, the horn of a goat? Gone are the days. Digital hearing aids are your secret weapon. They make you feel the room and keep you safe from cars (and monsters) coming from behind you. With advances in technology, you feel the surround sound, life in 3D, like you’ve always known it.
Widex Moment™, the wide-wild range
Thanks to the groundbreaking technologies ZeroDelay and PureSound™, Widex employs artificial intelligence to create surround sound.
Digital hearing aids convert sound waves into digital signals to produce an exact duplication of sound. Computer chips in digital hearing aids analyze speech and other environmental sounds. They give context to any situation. They can also be used to take phone calls and listen to books or music.
What does a digital hearing aid really mean?
Unlike analogue (old) hearing aids, which merely make everything louder, digital hearing aids are able to distinguish between speech and background noise. They're smarter.
Are digital hearing aids better?
Digital hearing aids are double agents: they also serve as streaming devices for taking phone calls or listening to music or audio books. Background noise is also filtered out better. In addition, they are less sensitive to “disturbances”—i.e., when someone gives you a bear hug.
How do digital hearing aids work?
They perform at lightning speed and are more sensitive to a change in environment. They can also be programmed according to your specific hearing loss. In a nutshell: 1) A microphone receives sound and converts it into a digital signal. 2) An amplifier increases the strength of the digital signal. 3)The speaker releases the amplified sound into the ear canal.
How long do digital hearing aids last?
A lot of that depends on who you are: a fireman, boxer, arctic explorer or a blogger/sofa-hugger/home office hero. Most modern hearing aids will last on average between three and seven years.
Which is better, analog or digital hearing aids?
Analog hearing aids merely make everything louder, meaning they amplify sound. Digital hearing aids distinguish between background noise and speech. They also double as streaming devices so that you can take phone calls and listen to music or the TV through them too.
Are digital hearing aids expensive?
Digital hearing aids can seem prohibitively expensive, but it’s important to know that you are paying for far more than just the devices themselves. When you acquire hearing aids, the price includes follow-up adjustments, routine cleanings and a warranty that can range from one to three years.
Can I afford digital hearing aids?
There are plenty of options when it comes to purchasing hearing aids. We are here to help you figure out smart financing options and eliminate the guesswork of what your insurance will cover.
What are the best digital hearing aids?
The best digital hearing aids do several things: They distinguish between noise and speech, reduce feedback, automatically adjust the volume to the environment, use directional microphones, and improve the actual quality of sound.
