Widex UNIQUE Hearing Aids

UNIQUE hearings aids capture a wide sound picture for wearers – both soft and loud sounds are presented comfortably.

UNIQUE is a favorite for those with active lifestyles, with its wind reduction feature to enhance speech in windy environments. With an automatic detection processing platform, UNIQUE picks up on the intricacies of the listening situation to make sure wearers hear the right sound at the right time. As a wireless hearing aid, UNIQUE connects to smartphones through the COM-DEX app, which allows wearers ease of control of volume and hearing aid features. This connection also allows wearers to stream music, media, and phone calls directly to their hearing aids. UNIQUE hearing aids are available in completely-in-canal (CIC) micro, CIC, in-the-ear (ITE), receiver-in-canal (RIC), and behind-the-ear (BTE).

ZEN Tinnitus Therapy

Tinnitus is commonly known as a “ringing of the ear,” and it appears in approximately 90% of hearing loss cases. Tinnitus is the experience of hearing sounds without an external stimulus, and it can range from temporary to chronic. For many, the sounds of tinnitus are incredibly frustrating and distracting – and may even take a toll on one’s quality of life. Because tinnitus is commonly found with hearing loss, Widex has addressed this condition with their ZEN Tinnitus Therapy program.

ZEN Tinnitus Therapy consists of four main parts to address the different aspects of tinnitus.

1. Counseling

To assist and educate the limbic system to alter its negative interpretation of the tinnitus via cognitive and behavioral intervention

2. Amplification

To stimulate the ears and brain and to prevent overcompensation

3. Fractal tones

Known as ZEN tones – which are synthetic sounds delivered through Widex hearing aids or a standalone device to provide acoustic stimulation.

4. Relaxation

A combination of behavioral exercises and sleep management strategies.

ZEN Tinnitus Therapy is available in select Widex hearing aids, and it is also available in a standalone device, ZEN2GO, for people who do not experience hearing loss and only tinnitus.
