Android and iPhone Streaming
In October 2021, Widex introduced direct streaming of music, calls, and other content directly from Android smartphones for MOMENT and MAGNIFY hearing aids thanks to an upgrade to its Widex MOMENT App.
With the latest Widex MOMENT App and MAGNIFY App, Widex MOMENT and Widex MAGNIFY hearing aids now support Google’s Android Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA) standard, allowing Widex hearing aids to function like traditional Bluetooth headsets and earbuds.
ASHA streaming is handled using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to preserve both smartphone and hearing aid battery power—a critical feature if you rely on their hearing aids throughout the day but still want to be able to stream.
Widex MOMENT and MAGNIFY hearing aids also support the ability to stream from Apple iOS devices through integration of Apple’s wireless MFi technology, and from other hardware devices through available DEX accessories.
Introducing WIDEX MOMENT – a hearing aid that processes sound so quickly, the artificial sound associated with hearing aids is eliminated. Powered by ZeroDelay™ technology, WIDEX MOMENT changes the paradigm of sound in real life, with the breakthrough Widex PureSound.
WIDEX MOMENT addresses one of the great unsolved challenges facing the hearing aid industry: how to overcome the delay-based distortion that leaves many listeners with an artificial, dissatisfying and demotivating hearing experience. It features ZeroDelay™ Technology, an entirely new and revolutionary way to handle sound, which processes the sound signal faster than any other digital hearing aid.
The ZeroDelay™ Pathway is an additional, industry-changing, ultra-fast signal pathway. This technology reduces the processing delay between microphone and receiver to below 0.5 milliseconds – crushing industry standards.
The ZeroDelay™ Engine combines the input from all key components into one pure, seamless sound experience, including the Dual-mic Input Control which ensures the optimal use of the input from the dual microphone array, the ZeroDelay™ Accelerator and Amplifier. This part of the processor ensures a complete, pure and personalized sound, and the most impressive hearing platform in the industry.
The World’s Smallest Lithium-Ion RIC
Available in the world’s smallest lithium-ion RIC device and other RIC and custom hearing aid styles, WIDEX MOMENT needs to be experienced to be believed.
With the WIDEX MOMENT mRIC R D, you can rest easy knowing you’ll always have the power you need in an inconspicuous hearing solution, and you’ll never have to bother with hearing aid batteries again.
Artificial Intelligence App
Widex MOMENT is compatible with the SoundSense Learn smartphone app, which leverages Artificial Intelligence and machine learning to personalise your hearing experience and create hearing programs based on a your typical environments — family meals, an office meeting, your favourite restaurant, etc.
The app gathers a variety of anonymous data and based on these real-world preferences, a complete personalised listening experience is created for you. These adjustments and custom settings can then also be shared directly and securely with HEARING SAVERS, which helps the our Audiologists to better tailor your programming and listening experience.
