With an intuitive swipe-function app, personalized sound programs, and multiple ways of connecting, the just-unveiled Widex BEYOND made-for-iPhone hearing aid is designed to deliver a high level of connectivity and sound.
According to Widex, BEYOND provides exceptional 2.4 GHz direct connectivity, while advanced TRI-LINK™ technology lets wearers instantly connect to iPhones, T-coils and a full range of DEX communication solutions. An integrated signal processing chip-set design, with 100% independent channel separation, minimal delay filters and 4 A/D converters, means BEYOND offers the cleanest sound of any hearing aid in the industry–even while streaming, reports Widex.
The company says that what makes Widex BEYOND special is its easy-to-use and customisable made-for-iPhone app. It allows full streaming functionality and control over the listening environment so hearing aid wearers are seamlessly connected anywhere and anytime – and provides unparalleled connectivity between their hearing aids. The app interface can be personalised by wearers, and also utilizes the familiar swipe functionality for easy navigation – so users can quickly and easily navigate through various intuitive commands and screens.
Other BEYOND highlights include:
- A clean sound hearing aid rated by wearers as significantly better than others. Brilliant sound – even when streaming.
- Up to 30% better speech understanding in wind with the SMARTWIND MANAGER™ that significantly reduces wind noise annoyance
- Better power consumption than many made-for-iPhone streaming hearing aids; with PowerSaver Plus™ technology, designed specifically for the demands of connectivity
- Soft Level Noise Reduction that allows soft speech sounds to be heard, while reducing bothersome soft noises
- WidexLink™ – the supreme InterEar communication technology
According to Widex USA President Jeffrey Geigel, Widex BEYOND is ahead of the game when it comes to made-for-iPhone hearing technology. “Widex is already known for leading technology and sound, but now we allow the end-users to control that sound from their pockets via their iPhone.”
