Hearing Aids: An HR Mid-Year 2021 Review
At Widex we believe in a world where there are no barriers to communication; a world where people interact freely, effortlessly, and confidently. With 60 years’ experience developing state-of-the-art technology, we provide hearing solutions that are easy to use, seamlessly integrated in daily life, and that enable people to hear naturally. As one of the world’s leading hearing aid producers, our products are sold in more than 100 countries, and we employ 4,000 people worldwide.
Widex MOMENT hearing aids address one of the great unsolved challenges in the industry: no matter how good the sound, they still sound like hearing aids. Featuring two ultra-fast signal pathways, Widex eliminates the “out-of-sync” sound for patients, while offering the industry’s fastest processing time. Widex’s sound quality is also tailor-made to the patients individual hearing needs. Powered by artificial intelligence, SoundSense Learn effortlessly guides wearers toward a better, more customized experience, and exactly the sound they want. My Sound combines the capacity of artificial intelligence with the relevance of real-world experience to deliver a new level of automated customization.
Oticon More is the world’s first hearing aid with an on-board deep neural network (DNN) trained on 12 million real‑life sounds to give the brain more of the information it needs to decipher the intricate details of relevant sounds. Oticon More builds on Oticon’s proven BrainHearing approach to deliver a full and precisely balanced sound scene that makes it easier for the brain to perform optimally. The innovative solution represents a fundamentally new approach to signal processing. By expanding the sound scene, the life-changing technology in Oticon More makes it easier for patients to enjoy, follow, and engage in conversations.
Signia Augmented Xperience and Pure Charge&Go AX
With the new Augmented Xperience (AX) platform, Signia transforms the way patients hear.

The net result of this world’s first split-processing technology is a fully immersive and intelligent hearing experience, in which sounds shift into the foreground and background naturally and seamlessly. Signia’s all-new Pure Charge&Go AX hearing aids—the first to feature the AX platform—deliver up to 36 hours of run time per charge and are compatible with Android and iOS devices.
