Hearing aids made by Widex

​Widex has many models of hearing aids that are available in several different technology levels and styles. Widex has given some of their hearing aid styles branded names. For example, Fusion is their receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) style, Passion is their mini-RITE, Fashion is their behind-the-ear (BTE) style and XP is their in-the-ear (ITE) style hearing aid.

Following this naming convention, Widex hearing aids are identified by the product family name, technology level and the name of the style. For example, you might be fit with a UNIQUE 440 Fusion or a DREAM 220 XP. Widex also has an invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aid called the micro-CIC. The BTE and RITE styles are available in a rainbow of color options.

Differences between Widex’s technology levels

Most of the Widex product families have products in as many as four performance levels. These levels correspond to price point and level of sophistication. The 440 level is perfect for technology savvy wearers who have an active, demanding lifestyle and a wide variety of listening needs ranging from quiet conversation to high-powered business meetings and animated gatherings in noisy venues. The 330 and 220 levels are suited for wearers who may not have the most demanding listening needs or whose typical listening situations are more predictable and less noisy. These levels offer plenty of advanced features for many wearers. The most basic 110 level is adequate for wearers who are less socially active or who spend most of their time enjoying one-on-one or small group conversations in quiet settings and watching television.

Tinnitus management is a key focus

Tinnitus has been a main focus for Widex for several years, and almost all Widex hearing aids include a tinnitus feature called Zen. Zen consists of several types of therapy tones that, when combined with other tinnitus management techniques outlined by your hearing care provider, can help improve your ability to cope with bothersome tinnitus.

Other hearing aids

Widex was an early pioneer in the field of digital hearing aid technology and, in 2001, launched the SENSO Diva, the first fully digital hearing aid on the market. Since then, they have kept pace with the ever-changing world of hearing aid technology. Widex enjoys a loyal following among hearing healthcare professionals who have fit their patients with hearing aids from not only Widex’ current portfolio, but also these product families: SENSO Diva, MIND, CLEAR, and MENU.

Assistive listening devices made by Widex

In addition to an innovative line-up of hearing aids, Widex offers other assistive technology and accessories to improve the wearer's experience. These products include:

  • RC-DEX remote control
  • Com-DEX, Uni-DEX, and Phone-DEX solutions for use with mobile phones allow for discreet, high-quality sound streaming directly to hearing aids
  • Phone-DEX landline phone streams sound to hearing aids and can be used by the whole family
  • TV-DEX for streaming sound from your television to hearing aids
  • T-DEX neck loop made for connecting with hearing aids’ telecoils
