Technologies like PureSound™ and ZeroDelay™ offer low-latency, high-fidelity audio, perfectly suited for studio work. These hearing aids are engineered to handle sound levels up to 113 dB SPL, effectively reducing distortion and delivering a balanced auditory experience that includes both speech clarity and musical richness.

Widex hearing aids can only connect to one Bluetooth device at a time, posing challenges for users with multiple devices.

Room for Improvement

While Widex scores high in innovation and ethics, it's worth noting a couple of areas where it falls short. Their current flagship product, the Widex Moment, is increasingly seen as dated, especially when compared to more recent competitive offerings. A new product launch is eagerly awaited.

Additionally, Bluetooth connectivity could be smoother. While iOS users enjoy a seamless experience, Android users might require an additional accessory called the COM-DEX for full functionality. Widex hearing aids, like many other brands, can only connect to one Bluetooth device at a time, making the process cumbersome for those using multiple devices.

Conclusion

Widex emerges as a top-tier choice for those seeking individualized hearing solutions, excellent sound quality, and a brand committed to sustainable practices. However, prospective users should note the limitations in their current flagship model and Bluetooth functionality before making a final decision.

Widex hearing aid models compared

There are technically 3 different Widex models available on the market, Widex Moment, Widex Evoke, and Widex Unique. However, of the 3, Widex Moment is the only one that harnesses Widex’s latest technology, and we’d recommend avoiding the others, as they are quite outdated at this point.

The biggest thing to consider when selecting the right Widex model, is which style and technology level you prefer. The style of the hearing aid refers to the physical form factor, i.e, what the hearing aid looks like, and how it sits in or on your ear. The Widex Moment family of hearing aids comes in several styles from discreet in-ear models, to sleek receiver-in-canal styles. To learn more about these styles, we’d recommend this video.

Once you’ve decided on the style you prefer, the next thing to consider is which technology level you prefer. Widex hearing aids are available in 4 technology levels, from best to lowest: 440, 330, 220, 110.

What needs improving

Inside the devices are excellent, however the design of the Moment RIC is a bit clunky and not as streamlined in my opinion. If you have hair to cover the devices, it’s a non-issue, but for those of us with limited hair available, it could be. Additionally, while most people tend to want to adjust their hearing aids via the app, there is limited manual control available outside the app.

What needs improving

As advanced as Widex hearing aids are, particularly those rechargeable instruments using Lithium-ion batteries, the device will eventually need to have the battery replaced at the factory and this interruption can be inconvenient to patients using the hearing aids. It is for this reason that we stock loaner hearing aids for patients to use as they will be without their hearing aid while it is being serviced and/or replaced. Also, Widex only offers rechargeable batteries in the Receiver-in-the-Canal style hearing aids. Rechargeable batteries in custom hearing aids, as well as replaceable rechargeable batteries in RIC style hearing aids would be a significant feature to be able to offer our patients.

What needs improving

Although the wired version offers more stability with streaming, we would love to see Widex come out with a wireless option for their remote microphone system. It would also be great if they added a custom rechargeable option to their Moment lineup for those patients who are interested or would benefit from those features.

What needs improving

I’d like to see more styles such as in-the-ear hearing aids available with rechargeable capabilities & direct to Bluetooth options. I would also like to see recharger options such as portable rechargers that can recharge without being plugged in, or rechargers that have Dry Aid kits built in to help those with moisture issues.

What needs improving

The transition to the Moment line of products with Android streaming capabilities has had some issues with bluetooth connectivity, but those issues have been resolved with current firmware and software updates.

Beau Campa, Doctor of Audiology

What needs improving

While the sound quality and overall appearance of Widex hearing aids are major benefits, one limiting factor is lack of direct Bluetooth connectivity and Streaming to Android devices. Although this shouldn’t be deal breaker for patients, the fact of the matter is that people want to stream, and many of them are Android users. Widex does have accessories patients can purchase that will allow them to stream, however it is another thing that someone has to buy and carry around in their pocket, which in my opinion is dated and inconvenient by today’s technology standards.

What needs improving

It is unfortunately only able to connect directly through Bluetooth capability to Apple phone devices at this time. It is not scheduled to be Android compatible until fall of 2021.

Widex hearing aid prices

The pricing of Widex hearing aids varies widely, influenced by several factors. You can purchase them online starting at around $1000 each, or at a local Widex retailer's office for up to $4,000 each. This significant price range is due to various reasons, as outlined in this video. In short, the way you buy Widex hearing aids plays a crucial role in determining the cost. Here's an overview of your options:

Direct-to-consumer (mail order): By emailing a recent hearing test to online Widex retailers, you can have your hearing aids programmed and sent to you. These retailers might also offer remote programming for future adjustments. This option is generally the most cost-effective, though Widex discourages it and warns that warranties may be voided for aids bought this way.

Local Widex provider: Purchasing from a local distributor can be pricier. For instance, HearingTracker.com reports that the national average price for a pair of the latest Widex Moment model is $7546. The advantage of buying locally is the inclusion of several years of follow-up service in the initial cost, eliminating future service fees. This can be advantageous for those expecting to need ongoing support. Widex's website provides a < a href="https://www.widex.com/en-us/shop-finder/" target="_blank">tool to locate local providers for consultations of you wish to purchase this way.

Discount network: Experienced buyers often prefer discount networks, balancing reduced prices with local support. Companies like ZipHearing can refer you to a local Widex affiliate offering discounted rates and services, potentially saving up to 50% off retail prices. For an exact quote, check prices for Widex Moment and then contact the company to be referred to a provider near you. This option combines the benefits of both direct-to-consumer and local provider methods.
