Widex Announces New Unique Hearing Aids
Today at the annual EUHA in Germany, Widex announced the release of a new family of hearing aids- Widex Unique. It’s been over 2 years since Widex had a major release, so the anticipation for this release was great, thanks in part to a sharp marketing campaign and lots of industry insiders abuzz with excitement for this release. With the new Unique family, Widex has gotten better at what they were already good at by helping users capture a wider range of sound than any other hearing aid, they’ve improved their wind noise reduction system and are making the bold claim of having “the best wind noise reduction in the industry”, they’ve introduced a completely new sound processing system which automatically adapts to the environment so users aren’t manually changing programs, and finally, they’ve introduced a new streaming accessory, COM-DEX.
For more information on the Widex Unique, I have recently written a lengthy review of the Widex Unique 440. You can also check out the videos below produced by Widex. Since our readers are typically a bit more technically-inclined, I’m going to provide the videos that Widex has released for their hearing providers, as these videos are more insightful than some of the more consumer-oriented videos.
Hear a wider range of sounds
Hear better in wind
Hear better everywhere, automatically
New COM-DEX accessory
Widex already has a solid line of accessories, but they’ve just gotten more comprehensive. With the new COM-DEX device, and apps for iPhone and Android devices, users will now be able to control their hearing aids from their smartphones.
With the COM-DEX app you can:
- Stream high quality sound to the hearing aids
- Adjust volume settings, change programs or alter sound levels of Widex hearing aids directly
- Choose the direction of the sound with FreeFocus
- See COM-DEX battery status
- See COM-DEX explained with the Connection Guide
- Learn how to adjust sound, programs and sound direction with Usage Guide.
- Learn basic hearing aid maintenance with instructional videos
- Locate nearest hearing care professional with the handy shop finder
- Use the mirror to help placement of hearing aids
These hearing aids are brand new, so we don’t yet have any experience with them and have not heard any reviews from providers who are fitting them, or users who have worn them. Keep this post bookmarked, they will soon start trickling in!
