Widex MOMENT Hearing Aids
Newly released in mid-2020, the Widex MOMENT is the latest hearing aid platform from the World class Danish Company. The Widex MOMENT delivers the most pure and natural sound ever by using ultrafast ZeroDelay™ and PureSound™ technologies. Widex has also introduced the smallest rechargeable lithium-ion receiver-in-canal hearing aid on the market with the MOMENT mRIC.
The Widex Moment addresses one of the greatest challenges that has faced the hearing aid industry since it’s inception: a delay in processing. This effect makes hearing aids generally sound artificial and is one factor in hearing aids being rejected by new users.
PureSound™ with ZeroDelay™
Widex has introduced the most natural, least distorted sound experience ever using the new ZeroDelay™ and PureSound™ technologies. ZeroDelay™ delivers sound to the eardrum faster than ever before, reducing the chance for frequency interference in the ear canal (when sound passing through the open ear mixes with amplified sound from the hearing aid). Widex calls the sound delivered via ZeroDelay™ it’s PureSound™ experience.
All of this is achieved by greatly improved processor speed advancements when compared to previous generations of receiver-in-the-ear products, and Widex claims 85% of listeners prefer the new PureSound™ when compared to the sound offered by previous models or manufacturers. Notably, Widex continues to offer its signature True-Input Technology, which reduces peak-clipping, further reducing distortion at the analog-to-digital converter.
Widex claims the MOMENT mRIC is the smallest rechargeable lithium-ion receiver-in-canal aid on the market. The mRIC represents Widex’s first foray into lithium-ion technology. Previously Widex worked with partner ZPower to supply retrofit silver-zinc rechargeable battery solutions, but with lithium-ion becoming the de facto rechargeable solution, all the main hearing aid manufacturers are now developing lithium-ion devices.
Besides reducing the hearing aid size, the lithium-ion solution also helps to provide improved moisture protection. Previously, the silver-zinc batteries were interchangeable with disposable batteries, but lithium-ion batteries require sealed battery doors, and this means less vulnerability to moisture/liquid for internal components.
Widex pioneered SoundSense Learn machine learning technology in hearing aids with their previous EVOKE platform, and the technology forms the foundation for the personalized sound enhancement used in the Widex MOMENT App. Research from Widex indicates that SoundSense Learn usage leads to greater listening comfort and subjective sound quality,
With the Widex Remote Care App and Widex Remote Link neck worn accessory, you can have a live video call with your audiologist or dispenser and receive real-time hearing aid adjustments. While the Remote Link accessory can be a little inconvenient, Widex currently offers the most comprehensive remote care available on the market, allowing your audiologist to make all of the same adjustments to your hearing aids that are typically made in clinic. This includes feedback and hearing checks using Widex’ own in-situ audiometry, Sensogram. This feature tests your hearing loss via the hearing aid itself.
TV and Android and CROS Streaming Coming Soon
There will shortly be the ability to stream directly to Android phones and a new CROS system for single sided hearing loss. This will complete the portfolio of Widex MOMENT hearing aids making them some of the most advanced and versatile products on the market today.
