Widex was founded in Denmark in 1956 and is now the sixth largest hearing aid manufacturer in the world. Widex is committed to developing digital technology which has led to advances such as the world’s first digital in-the-ear hearing aid and revolutionary wireless technology. Now with distributors in over 100 countries, Widex continues their commitment to high quality, innovative sound. All of Widex’s hearing solutions feature the Widex Sound, their trademark. The Widex Sound provides people with hearing loss access to a full spectrum of sound, enhancing soft sounds and making sure louder sounds are comfortable. The Widex Sound is also customizable to meet personal hearing needs, providing wearers with sound that is the most natural to them.
EVOKE wearers have two streaming options: Bluetooth or using DEX, Widex’s wireless accessories. With connection to your iPhone, EVOKE allows you to stream phone calls, music, and other media directly to your ears. Through the Widex app, wearers have control over their listening experience, making adjustments simply to program features, balance, and volume.
Widex EVOKE Z
EVOKE is now available as a rechargeable hearing aid, using ZPower technology. ZPower uses silver-zine batteries, the world’s highest energy rechargeable Microbattery, holding more power than any other battery of its size. For people on the move, ZPower is an excellent option, taking only 3-4 hours to fully charge. If you should run out of juice with your ZPower batteries, you can swap out the rechargeable battery for a normal zinc-air battery while you wait.
Widex BEYOND: Made for iPhone Hearing Aids
As Widex’s first Made for iPhone specific hearing aid, BEYOND combines personalized sound programs, advanced connectivity, and high-quality sound in one user-friendly device.
BEYOND allows wearers to stream music, media, and phone calls from their iPhones (and Androids) directly to their hearing aids with a convenient and streamlined app. Through the BEYOND App, wearers experience a high level of personalization to ensure the best sound to meet their specific needs. With the option to choose from a catalog of listening preferences, wearers may adjust sound settings and program templates that combine the elements that assist their hearing in a variety of different environments. Wearers may adjust the v0lume on each hearing aid individually, customize clarity of speech and comfort, equalize high, mid, and low frequency bands, mix sounds from both hearing aids, and select directionality of microphones. Also, with connection to the BEYOND App, your hearing aids will always be up to date with the latest updates from Widex. The BEYOND App checks regularly for new software and wirelessly updates hearing aid software in a matter of minutes to provide the most sophisticated listening experience available.
As with Widex’s other advanced hearing aids, BEYOND provides wearers with incredible features to ensure ease of listening in any environment. Features such as SMARTWIND Manager use a series of algorithms to analyze and balance noise annoyance that may interfere with speech understanding or the sounds you prefer to hear. At the same time, Soft Level Noise Reduction is a feature that enhances soft speech sounds to help wearers as they focus on the voices they wish to hear. And, what’s a Widex hearing aid without the trademark “Widex Sound”? BEYOND wearers will experience clear, crisp sound, even while streaming from the phone to the hearing aid.
With all of these exciting features, BEYOND still manages to provide wearers with excellent battery life with PowerSaver Plus – allowing wearers to hear and stream for longer without the need to recharge or change batteries. Overall, BEYOND provides wearers with a familiar interface for easy navigation and functionality, and ensures connectivity with confidence.
BEYOND is a behind-the-ear hearing aid that comes in a number of power levels to accommodate various degrees of hearing loss.

Widex Styles and Features
Widex also offers a collection of assistive listening devices called DEX and SCOLA, as well as tinnitus therapy and the CROS hearing aid for single-sided deafness.
DEX devices include personal amplifiers, connection with phones, and telecoils to deliver sound via electromagnetic waves through hearing loop systems. Similarly, the SCOLA FM system delivers amplified sound via FM radio waves and is designed for academic settings.
Zen Therapy, the tinnitus relief system, plays soothing harmonic tones to counteract the ringing of the ears and amplifies sound to stimulate the ears and brain to prevent overcompensation. The CROS single-sided deafness hearing aid is worn in the behind-the-ear style and picks up sounds from the wearer’s surroundings to transmit between to the hearing ear, improving spatial awareness and speech recognition. For hearing aid maintenance, Widex offers an electronic drying system that uses UV to sanitize and dry hearing aids in 3 hours.
