When I was in high school I had trouble hearing my teachers. As a result, I was seated at the front of the class for every subject. Before I went to school at South Alabama, I got Widex hearing aids. Now I can hear all my teachers perfectly, no matter where I sit. I can even hear perfectly in lecture halls!!
I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina and walk 3-4 miles daily with my Chocolate Lab Sophie. Before Widex Beyond I could not appreciate the many birds on my daily adventures into nature . My life has been enriched by being able to hear and identify all of them.
For years my wife thought I was not paying attention. I admit sometimes I did but most the time I really didn't hear her. Now its a whole new world. Being involved in conversation and not trying to read lips and paying attention to facial expressions is great.
It was exciting to see the learning that had occurred in my patient’s new EVOKE Hearing Instruments via Sound Sense Adapt. After using the Instruments and the preference control for two weeks, the patient came in for their Hearing Instrument check. I was amazed and impressed that, in that short time, the Instrument not only learned but adapted automatically to his behavior in each of the sound classes. It is a particularly valuable feature since this patient, as a new user, will be traveling to Europe and will not be able to return for several weeks for fine tuning.
The confidence in knowing the Instrument will continue to both “learn” and adapt not only addresses audibility in these environments but also comfort. It is an extraordinary feature and represents the wave of the future! Thank you to Widex!
