The hearing aid industry has long fought against distortion – the clipping sound that can come with high-volume sounds. With True Input Technology, the battle is nearly won.
True Input Technology increases headroom, the amount of volume users can hear through their hearing aids before clipping or distortion occurs. High headroom levels are important, especially when listening to music. If headroom is too low, louder parts of the song can distort and not be “cleaned” by the hearing aid’s processor. Speech in noisy environments can also become distorted.
With older hearing aids, the best way to combat distortion was to turn the volume down and duck under the headroom bridge. This tactic doesn’t give the user the most natural sound, and it limits what they can hear.
No hearing aid can claim a limitless ceiling, but Widex comes pretty close. With Widex True Input Technology, users get the most natural sound at any volume level.
