This model is their least expensive model, but it’s sufficient.
Hello my name is Jay, I’m a retired disability specialist, I live in Ocean City, Maryland, and I’m here to to talk about my choice of hearing aids, which in this instance is Widex Moment 110 model. My hearing loss history is basically a gradual degradation, and moderate degradation of hearing that I became aware of when I had difficulty listening to my wife speak to me, in a relatively normal tone of voice, and I would kind of like catch it mid way, missing like the subject of the sentence and I would had to ask her about that, and then she would kinda raise her voice to make it more clear for me to understand and sometimes I would get that adrenaline rush in the back of my neck, and not very pleasant, so I agreed to get my hearing tested and you know, if it ended up that I really could use some help in this area that I would have no problem getting a hearing aid system. And that’s what happened you know I got tested and I found out that I had a moderate degree of degradation especially in my left ear, especially regarding the treble or high end range of the sonic spectrum. So, I had seen a promotional video by the guitarist from the band Toto and he was raving about these Widex hearing aids. I’m a guitarist and I still play and I love listening to music, and you know he was speaking to me, I kinda understand what he was saying, especially when he was talking about dynamic range and things like that. So you know after I found out that because of my age and because I’m a Medicare recipient that you know, most of this would be paid for, this is a pretty expensive system, you know I decided to go right off the bat with this system that the guy from Toto recommended. This is what they look like, they’re, you know you can’t see them when they’re in. This is the charger, this is the right hearing aid, this is kind of a charger you can take with you, this is like the travel case in case you don’t want to wear them, instruction manuals, cleaning system, this is the guide to the Widex Moment application which is really neat because you have some set patterns for different hearing situations like for music or for speaking some one you know vis-a-vis, face to face, and a third selection if you’re in a noisy room with like boomy acoustics or something like that, it kinda like mutes the background noise, and then you have customizable settings that you can make up your own setting, and you can adjust the treble, you can adjust the mid range, you can adjust the base, it’s very nice, it’s very cool, you just download the app, it’s free, get it, hook it up, Bluetooth, Bluetooth is included, so it’s a very modern system. What I like about it the most is you know I can hear when I put this in, so it does what they advertise it to. What I don’t like about it is that it’s expensive, there’s occasional feedback, but you are able to adjust the frequencies and the volume to taste, so that’s just something the more I live with them the better I get at it. So would I recommend this hearing aid to a friend? Yes especially if you’re over age 65 and have Medicare, but I have to give you the caveat that I have no experience with any other brand so this is just me telling you about my experience with the Widex system. And this model is their least prohibitively expensive model, but it’s sufficient to the requirements of the moderate loss of hearing that I experience. The one piece of advice I would give to someone that’s considering purchasing hearing aids is that you gotta be certain you’re not better off not hearing what’s going on the world, I mean there’s a lot of noise and you know, I’m hearing it everyday and you get to hear it really really crystal clear. Of course you can always remove them from your ears, and that’s an option. I had an uncle that never wore his hearing aids because he said there’s nothing worth hearing, except that when I went to talk to him, he put them in! Alright so that’s my little, you know, testimonial about the Widex hearing aid system, happy hearing, have a great life, take care.
