Advanced and User-Friendly Technology for Hearing Aid
By Utilities Tech Outlook | Monday, February 04, 2019
Hearing aid technology has evolved substantially in recent years and continually improves. Modern hearing aids have many integrated functionalities. It is difficult for a non-expert person to know what features really do make a difference. There is a lot of marketing that promotes different features and advantages. Typically, more expensive hearing aids have more features.
Widex is one of the world's leading hearing aid manufacturers that allows people to easily connect and communicate by developing the most advanced and user-friendly technology for hearing aids. Widex was founded in 1956 in Denmark as a family-owned company. Widex audio equipment is sold in more than 100 countries and employs more than 4,000 people worldwide. Widex hearing aids are easy to use, integrated into everyday life and allow people to hear naturally.
Launched in June 2018, WIDEX EVOKE is the first hearing aid with advanced machine learning technology to create a truly personalized sound for wearers in real time.
Widex recently received the CES 2019 Best of Innovation Awards for WIDEX EVOKETM featuring WIDEX ENERGY CELL technology in the categories of fitness, sports, and biotech products. This new technology is based on the revolutionary WIDEX EVOKE platform to deliver superior sound quality while liberating users by leveraging the advantages of WIDEX ENERGY CELL. The application control features make it easy to manage the hearing aid in any setting. It will be available to users beginning this summer. This is the smallest commercially available fuel cell in the world that enables users to re-energize their hearing aids from the grid in 20 seconds. WIDEX EVOKE with WIDEX ENERGY CELL technology eliminates the need to replace the battery once a week and costs up to 120 batteries per year for those using traditional batteries.
WIDEX ENERGY CELL is a miniature fuel cell-based technology from Widex. In cooperation with the Danish Technology Institute and with financial support from the Innovation Fund Denmark, Widex has developed the intelligent refill unit. The miniature fuel cells build on the cross-disciplinary engineering and nanotechnology expertise of DTI.
