Beyond the ordinary
Widex have taken their hearing instruments to beyond the ordinary by providing connectivity to iPhones.
Wearers can now hear phone conversations through their hearing aids, can hear music from their iPhones through the devices and can use their iPhones to control their hearing aids.
The new range of instruments is called the Widex Beyond and the new feature is called Made for iPhone (MFi). Many of the features in the special app can also be used with android phones.
The Widex Beyond personalised app allows wearers to use intuitive commands on their phone’s screen to adjust the volume on each hearing aid individually, choose speech and comfort settings, and set microphone directionality.
Wearers can also use the app for troubleshooting and can even use their iPhone to find their hearing aids if they are lost.
Widex says its Beyond devices also offer better power consumption than other MFi-streaming hearing aids, which is a huge plus because with some MFi-linked devices, batteries may be reduced - depending on use.
The Widex Beyond hearing instruments have an innovative integrated signal processing chip-set design with full independent channel separation, minimal-delay filters, and four A/D converters, meaning clear sound for users.
Other features include
· Wide dynamic range so the wearer to optimise sound based on their environment
· Wind-noise reduction, which gives up to 30% better speech understanding in windy conditions, and
· Allowing firmware updates so the device can be updated via the phone, without needing to visit an audiologist
