Widex announced the new WIDEX CUSTOMTM – a redesigned in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid with a 40% smaller engine compared to previous models.
“Widex CUSTOM delivers a powerful combination of superior sound and perfect fit. Tailored for the individual user, CUSTOM gets its strong performance from the UNIQUE platform—which provides unsurpassed sound performance whether used in a BTE, ITE, or ITC hearing aid,” said Jørgen Jensen, Widex CEO.
CUSTOM is designed to feature all the benefits of the UNIQUE platform such as sound classifier, soft level noise reduction, and reportedly one of the largest sound windows in the market, along with Widex BEYONDTM. It is also designed to provide customizable control via a new program button and volume wheel, according to Widex. Additionally, the battery door has been redesigned for quicker and easier battery changes.
CUSTOM connects to Widex’s range of assistive listening devices. According to Widex, the combination of a 312 battery and low power consumption lets CUSTOM maintain connection for longer without sacrificing sound quality.
“With the launch of Widex CUSTOM, even more people will be able to get a very discreet, custom-fit hearing aid without sacrificing their ability to enjoy the most powerful hearing aid technology available,” said Jensen.
