The quality of the sound is great, as well as the fit. The experience at the provider's office was wonderful, we couldn't have asked for better service. We also saved a great deal by using ziphearing.
I got my Widex 440 hearing aids on September 6, 2018. I have used them in a variety of environments including a bar with music, crowded restaurant, outdoor music festival, car, home, and others. I am thrilled. They are reasonably comfortable and have improved my ability to understand people talking drastically. I also like the I phone app that allows me to customize although I've found little need.
Although I have only had them for 2 week I can tell you they are a great improvement. From the first day I felt the quality of the sound and comfort. I hardly knew I had them on. My old pair kept me aware the were on and constantly needed adjustments. What a difference it is going out to a noisy restaurant. Not 100% but so much better. I can adjust the sound so I can be a part of the conversation and not have to ask “what” or to have the waiter repete. It still spooks me when me phone rings in my ear or the sound from a video on my iPad come on. What a help when driving using my phone gps and the voice comes through my aids. I love it
The sound seems good, but I have never had a hearing aid before. They are comfortable, but I don't know how durable yet, since I have only had them a few weeks. I like the way they look. No one can tell I have a hearing aid. Overall I am happy with them. The audiologist was very helpful and so was ZipHearing.
They are very comfortable to wear but the sound quality is absolutely terrible not even worth 1 star. Lots of loud background noises and not even 5% of the conversation is understandable. Thus far, all of the adjustments on Apps have proved to be useless. I have an appointment this coming Friday And if this does not workout I will return them. for some thing different.
The sound quality is great improvement. Right hearing aid comes out when chewing. Directional focus Left disappears when program is running. Have to reboot to get Left back. Evoke lets me adjust hearing in public places, which is a great improvement. I have recommended Widex Evoke and my ZipHearing provider to several of my friends that have had bad experiences with other hearing aid devices.
Pleased with the hearing aids and the flexibility that the app offers when connected to my Android phone. Easy to change the hearing aid settings on the phone. While you can change the settings using the buttons on the HAs, in noisy environments, it can be hard to hear the voice in the HAs telling you which setting you have cycled to. On the other hand, when the HA is connected to the app on the phone, you can easily swipe left/right to select the HA setting (examples of settings are: Universal, Noise, TV, Transport, Zen. Battery life has lasted one week for each of the two weeks I've used the device.
Overall comfort has been good. Another plus of the HA connected to the phone (on Android devices, this connection requires the COM-DEX device that hangs on a cord around my neck / under my shirt) is that one can take a phone call by either accepting the call on the phone or pressing the button on the COM-DEX device. This means two things: First, if the phone is in your pocket, you don't have to dig it out; you can accept the call via pressing the COM-DEX. Secondly, the HAs are acting as bluetooth devices connected to the phone...no different than someone wearing an Apple EarPod or any brand of bluetooth device...with the added bonus of the WIDEX (or, really any other brand that features this capability) that the HA's are 1) invisible - so they don't look like those white sticks hanging from your ears like the EarPod and 2) the speaker, of course, is in your ear....making it so much easier to take a call than simply holding the phone to your ear with the volume up (e.g. without HAs). These are my first...so I can't compare to other WIDEX or other brands. I have been happy/pleased with these, though.
I am extremely disappointed in the WIDEX hearing aids I have had for about two months. I regret purchasing them. I have had nothing but problems, and have had to go into the hearing aid clinic several times already. They've replaced the first pair with another pair, same make and type. The right aid dings/beeps/squeals all the time to the point I must take it out and try adjusting it to stop it. So annoying. I've changed the ear tip numerous times to no avail, doesn't help at all. I've tried taking the aid out, turning it off, and putting it back in to see if that would stop the noise. Nothing. It is terrible. I've worn hearing aids since 1991, and I have never had so many problems as I've had with the WIDEX. The way I feel, I would never recommend this hearing aid.
After less than two years each of my Widex Unique 440's have had to be adjusted or sent away to be rebuilt. Even when they function, the sound is less than satisfactory and i have trouble understanding some speech. Forget about crowded noisy areas, I might as well take them out. I have worn hearing aids for almost 30 years and these are the most expensive and least satisfactory pair I have ever had. One star because I can't go any lower.
Aamzing how transformative being able to hear the things you didn't know you were missing. I tried some hearing aids ten years ago and the sound was not natural. The Widex Evoke 440 have excellent sound quality as well as the ability to adjust according to situation using your phone. Love them!
