Widex is a Danish hearing aid manufacturer that was founded in 1956 by Erik Westermann and Christian Tøpholm. The company's name is derived from the words "Widow" (symbolizing a focus on sound) and "Excellence" (reflecting their commitment to high-quality products). Widex initially started as a small workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Widex is the 6th largest hearing aid manufacturer with distribution in over 100 countries.
Throughout its history, Widex has been a pioneer in hearing aid technology and innovation. One of their notable achievements was the introduction of the first digital in-the-ear hearing aid in 1995, which marked a significant advancement in hearing aid technology. This innovation allowed for more precise and customizable sound processing to meet individual hearing needs.
Widex has also been known for its research and development efforts, focusing on creating hearing aids that provide clear and natural sound quality for individuals with hearing loss. The company has continued to develop and refine its hearing aid technology, including advancements in noise reduction, speech enhancement, and connectivity features.
In recent years, Widex has been involved in mergers and acquisitions. In 2018, Widex announced a merger with Sivantos, another major hearing aid manufacturer, to create a new entity called WS Audiology. This merger combined the strengths of both companies to further drive innovation in the hearing aid industry.
Widex Moment Hearing Aids
Widex Moment hearing aids were designed to address a common issue in hearing aid wearers—sound distortion caused by the occlusion effect, which is the sensation of the sound of your own voice being unnatural or boomy when wearing hearing aids. Widex Moment aimed to eliminate this issue by introducing a new technology called "ZeroDelay," which significantly reduced or eliminated this distortion. This technology was achieved through the use of a faster and more advanced sound processing platform.
Widex Moment Sheer Hearing Aids
Expanding on the success of the Moment Hearing Aids, Widex developed their technology further to create Widex PureSound™ to further make your a wearers voice sound even more natural. With Widex Moment Sheer, the company added more parameters to a new AI powered Widex MySound™ technology to give more control over how the hearing aid wearer to adapt to different hearing environments.
