About the Widex Unique 220 Fusion Hearing Aid

The Unique 220 Fusion is Widex's mid-range technology, which is just a step above the most basic Unique 110 Fusion. The Unique 220 Fusion sits discreetly behind the ear, is comfortable, and sounds remarkably natural. This hearing aid automatically adapts to your environment in 3 different listening situations. This means that as you go about your day, the hearing aid will automatically adjust itself depending on your sound environment to give you the best hearing possible. The 220 model ensures comfort and natural sound in both quiet and noisy situations.

This is a 6 channel hearing aid with up to 3 customizable listening programs. This hearing aid is ideal for users with mild to profound hearing loss, as it can be fit with a standard, moderate, power, or high power receiver. Although this hearing aid is incredibly discreet, if you're looking for a slightly smaller more streamlined design, you may be interested in the Unique 220 Passion model. The Passion and Fusion models share the same technology and functionality, except for a few small differences. First, the Fusion model has an on-board push-button for adjusting the program and volume, and accessing the telecoil. Second, the Fusion model operates off of size 312 batteries which should last approximately 8-12 days, as opposed to the Passion's size 10 battery which gets only 3-7 days. Finally, the Fusion model is more powerful and thus, a better long term solution if your hearing loss is in the moderate to severe range.

Aside from those differences, the 220 Fusion and 220 Passion models share all the same technology and features. Both are compatible with Widex's entire line of DEX accessories and feature mid-range Widex technology at an affordable price. If you want a discreet, comfortable hearing aid for a calm lifestyle, at a competitive price, the Unique 220 Fusion is for you.

I was fitted with these two days ago so I am still getting used to them. I will tell you that I have lived with a moderate to profound loss of hearing all my life. These are the first hearing aids I have worn. I will tell you my impressions thus far.

The good.
1. They really are quite discreet. Something I truly appreciate
2. In the house, I am able to lower the volume on the TV substantially and still hear it clearly.
3. They have multiple settings. Mine has a universal setting, telecoil, and transposition mode. I am still deciding which I prefer between the universal and the transposition. The telecoil would be used if on a standard phone or with a loop system in public places.


The bad.

1. Background noise is unbearable and hard to separate from desired sound in noisy setting such as a restaurant.
2. In noisy environments, it sounds like you're in a tunnel

I am told that this is partly a matter of relearning to distinguish the sounds I wasn't hearing before. I don't quite believe this. The sound of water running in a sink, for example, sounds hissy and overpowering. This being said I am sure that there IS a learning factor to the hearing aids. Overall I am still on the fence as to whether this is a good fit for me but as I said, I have lived without hearing aids for all my life up until now (54 years) so it IS a big adjustment for me. For those who have worn hearing aids in the past, I would guess that these would do you very well indeed!

VERIFIED BUYER | Chandler, AZ ?

I'm a first time hearing aid buyer, asian, male, ~30 years old. My hearing loss is about half mild and half moderate in both ears. I can hear fairly well, but have been noticing in recent years that I've begun missing more words, or would have to ask people to repeat themselves more often. Also have tinnitus, but that's been getting worse/ more noticable in the past few years as well. Went to get my ears checked, and they recommended hearing aids as a way to maintain speech recognition, with a possibility of helping the tinnitus.

Being a first time buyer, I'm looking for the cheapest and most cost-effective option. The hearing center I originally went to recommended the basic Phonak hearing aids (I was told the medium step wouldn't have as much impact based on my needs, and I'm not ready to commit to the deluxe model). It did help to amplify the noise, but I felt everything might've been a bit too noisy. Was around $1100 per. Was told my hearing loss was nerve damage related (my ma does have some hearing loss, so some of it could be hereditary?) Went to a different location, tried Widex Unique 220 hearing aids, and did a slight upgrade up to get more channels (which should mean that it can adjust more frequency ranges, so it can be a better adjusted for your hearing if your level of hearing varies more per the different frequency ranges), and it improved the warranty on the hearing aids a bit, for about $1300 a piece. Both were I believe the BTE (behind the ear) model, where the receiver rests on top of the ear and the speaker has the wire/tube that goes into the ear. They fit pretty well and stay in position better than expected, though I have medium long hair which helps also keep it in place (and I imagine it'd shift pretty easily if I were to be active or try running around with them on).

So far, I'm been pretty happy with these, the incoming sound does appear to be more balanced, and I am able to hear and catch what people say more often. I realize some of this might be due to the more expensive model, or perhaps the hearing aid itself happened to be better adjusted for my ears per the various hearing ranges. For both models, the tinnitus hasn't really gone down (unfortunately), but it seems I've been able to better ignore/block it out during the day. I primarily wear the hearing aids in short spurts, during work meetings, or if I know I'm going to be talking to someone who is more soft spoken. I sometimes listen to music at work with head phones, so I usually take out the hearing aids then, and some unintended negatives is my co-worker has allergies and can sniffle a lot, which I now hear and am distracted by more when the hearing aids are in. In this sense, it is also a bit unfortunate that hearing aids can't remotely be turned off (at least, not with my model, as the standard seems to be you have to open the battery cover to turn it off, and hence it can't be in your ear at the same time), so that I can just keep the hearing aid in the ear and use it 'on demand' or when someone comes to speak with me, but, maybe that will change in the future. Hearing aids are a pricey venture in general, but it works well and as intended so far, so from my limited experience, I'd say it's 4.5 - 5 stars so far. Have tried them for about a couple months now. Batteries seem to last 5-7 days. The low battery warning seems to come up early on mine, but they actually seem to last an hour or so beyond that message.
