PURESOUND

The essence of the Widex sound philosophy

THE PERFECTION OF NATURAL SOUND
IS WHEN I FEEL CONNECTED TO MY LIFE AGAIN

We know that the first experience of a hearing aid is vital in setting the direction of the journey to better hearing. A negative experience can leave users wondering if they were right to try a hearing aid at all, but a positive one can make them feel more connected to their life than they have been for years.

We believe that it’s possible to give users a sound so natural that they will be simply amazed from the very first moment. How? With Widex PureSound™.

WHY DOES PURESOUND SOUND SO NATURAL?

We hear from users that one of the things that makes PureSound so natural is that the space around them feels right, with a rich and open sound. This experience is reflected in survey data, where 95% of wearers indicate that, with PureSound, they have the impression of sounds being exactly where they would expect them to be.

In a new scientific study, we have demonstrated that this experience can be attributed to the fact that PureSound allows for truer acoustic reflections than standard-delay hearing aids. This contributes to the natural experience of the surroundings and enables listeners to identify listening positions more accurately.

HOW DOES PURESOUND WORK?

Widex Moment Sheer has two sound paths that deliver unprecedented clarity.

PureSound for mild-to-moderate hearing loss …
Overcomes the poor, artificial sound common in open and vented fittings thanks to a second processing pathway: the ZeroDelay™ technology sound engine. ZeroDelay delivers the fastest sound processing available in a digital hearing aid – eliminating delay-based distortion and giving users an incredibly natural sound that we call PureSound.

The PureSound pathway also uses TruAcoustics™ – our upgraded in-situ acoustic assessment algorithm.

The classic Widex sound for all hearing losses …
A universal sound delivered by our latest-generation audiology engine featuring TruAcoustics and market-leading delay.

ZERODELAY - THE POWER BEHIND PURESOUND

Widex PureSound is delivered by the alternate and independent, industry changing, ultra-fast ZeroDelay pathway. This technology reduces the processing delay between microphone and receiver to below 0.5 milliseconds – crushing industry standards – and combines the input from all key components into one pure, seamless sound experience.

Widex Moment – one platform with two distinct integral signal processing paths to deliver a sound like no other.

ILLUMINATING THE “HEARING AID SOUND”

PureSound™ was created to address one of the most common barriers for hearing aid users to adapt to new devices: They sound artificial. That's because, with many hearing aids, when direct sound enters the ear canal through or around an instant ear-tip, it combines with sound from the hearing aid. The timing difference between the direct sound and the hearing aid sound produces a distortion known as the comb-filter effect that wearers describe as “artificial,” “tinny,” or “like a hearing aid.”

Widex PureSound™ processes sound 8-20 times faster than other digital hearing aids, shattering industry standards and eradicating the comb-filter effect. The result is a more natural sound. 

PROVEN TO BE PURE

In a study of sound quality in real-life situations/scenarios, all participants with normal hearing and 85% of those with hearing loss preferred Widex PureSound™ 

  • For each of 20 individual scenarios/situations, the majority of preferences were for PureSound. 
  • For individual situations/scenarios, there were more than three times as many PureSound preferences as standard delay preferences.

PureSound™ means proven sound quality without compromising on speech understanding in noisy conditions. When researchers looked into how the brain perceives PureSound, they saw that it comes incredibly close to the original signal. In other words, a hearing aid with PureSound doesn’t sound like a hearing aid. It sounds like real life. 

A BREAKTHROUGH EVERYONE CAN HEAR

Thanks to the ultrafast ZeroDelay™ pathway on the Widex Moment™ platform, Widex PureSound™ makes a real, audible difference to users. 
Research shows that a large majority of new and experienced users prefer Widex PureSound™ across different sound scenarios.
