Anecdotally, wearers of Widex ZeroDelay technology report that sounds are perceived as “more three-dimensional,” “having more layers,” and “spacious.” This article explores the effects of reverberation on hearing aid listening and offers an explanation about why wearers may have made such observations.

Although vent diameter decreases the directivity index of a directional hearing aid, a significant directional and noise reduction benefit is still available even with an open fitting. This study suggests that open fittings appear to be most beneficial (or least compromising) for people with milder hearing losses, or precipitous loss with normal low-frequency hearing where SNR loss may be milder.Read More
Current thinking on managing a low frequency hearing loss supports the use of broadband, multichannel WDRC hearing aids. In this way, both the low frequency and mid-to-high frequency cochlear fibers can be stimulated. This article examines the issues and decisions involved when fitting reverse-slope losses.Read More
