Widex Moment Hearing Aids

Reviews, Styles, Features & Benefits

 

Finally, lithium-ion rechargeables! 

March 2020 saw the launch of the Widex Moment hearing aid with the smallest lithium-ion powered rechargeable addition in the industry.  This has been well received as, so far, Widex’s real flaw has been the absence of lithium-ion-powered rechargeables in their model list. 

With today’s digital hearing aid technology, this has been considered Widex’s stumbling block – as consumer demands have changed and are finding this option an attractive concept.

Widex Moment hearing aids can eradicate the artificial

The Widex Moment hearing aid range is designed to change the way in which hearing aids themselves sound.  What has always been a challenge for manufacturers is getting the sound right without the hearing aid sounding like a hearing aid.  The tinny and artificial sound you hear has, until now, been the norm. 

So, why do they not sound like hearing aids? Generally, the sound you hear is out of sync in past hearing aids.  Due to the processed sound reaching the eardrum a split second later than the sound that travels directly through or around the hearing aids ear-tip.  However, in reality, the ‘tinny’ sound Widex is referring to is a generalisation.

In truth, it’s rare that people can detect digital echo in aids and most who have worn Moment aids can’t detect the difference in speed from their past devices. But, they have enjoyed the natural sound quality - so they must be doing something right!  For instance, Widex surveyed and found that around 95% said the sound was ‘natural’ and ‘clear’.

Widex Moment hearing aids offer better personalisation

Widex Moment hearing aids are compatible with the SoundSense Learn smartphone app.  This app supports AI and machine learning to personalise your own unique hearing experience.  Why is this beneficial?  This platform creates hearing programs developed on your typical soundscape.  The typical environment sounds of your commute, office space and favourite restaurant will be enriched automatically - natural sound everyday.

The data used by this app is taken from how often the wearer manipulates the volume and how many bespoke settings they create in their commonplace environments.  Your real-life preferences can then be used to improve your soundscape and the service from your hearing care professional.

Widex Moment Hearing Aids Reviews

What did our audiologists think of the Widex Moment hearing aid range?

 

Widex Moment Review Summary

Are Widex Moment hearing aids any good?  We asked our audiologists for patient feedback and reviews of Widex Moment hearing aids - here is what we received:

  • Great improvement on overall sound in comparison to Evoke - in such a small and light device.
  • Impressive music playback.
  • Great natural sound as well as own-voice improvements.
  • Fantastic spatial awareness.
  • Discreet and comfortable to wear.

 

Widex Moment Review - In-depth

The Sound:  Patients liked the music playback, by this we mean a rich sound experience that's fully immersive - very similar to the earbud industry.  Due to this most people felt like they didn't need to tap into the SoundSense Learn feature to personalise their listening. 

This means we can't review this particular feature at this time.  However, when using Widex's PureSound, patients found a greater scope of natural sound - especially their own voice.

 

Spatial Awareness:  Because the Moment delivers such great natural sound and music playback - the spatial awareness is increased.  Patients were able to keep environmental awareness whilst being active, holding a conversation and listen to music with ease. 

 

Comfort & Fit:  The feedback about the style, comfort and fit of the Widex Moment hearing aids is that they are discreet and comfortable to wear.  To put device size into perspective - the Moment is similar to Livio Edge but much smaller than the Phonak Paradise.

 

Streaming:  We didn't get much feedback in regards to streaming quality, as patients found they needed an extra boost and used the COM-DEX quite a lot - so it wouldn't be a fair judgment.  Our audiologists feel that the Moment app is an integral part of the wearer's hearing experience and essential for remote adjustments, so the streaming might be rather limited without the accessory.

Perhaps, if you are thinking about purchasing the Widex Moment - the COM-DEX accessory is worth considering.  Other reasons to invest in this accessory would be if you have an older iPhone mobile or if you want truly hands-free calls.

Common FAQs about Widex Moment hearing aids

Is this the best model for me?

If you are looking at this page then it is likely that an audiologist has suggested that you purchase this particular hearing aid, so is this the best model for you?

In general, any audiologist will always be recommending to you the model that best suits your needs. Here is a useful check list to make sure that is the case.

  • Audiologist level of knowledge. The audiologist you have seen will hopefully have a wide knowledge of all available hearing aids, however some will only be familiar with a small number of brands and therefore may not really be in a position to know which model is the best for you. It is OK to challenge their recommendation and ask them to justify why this particular brand is the one for you.
  • Do research. Read about the hearing aid that was recommended. Does it seem like it will suit your lifestyle? Does it have more or less features than you need? 
  • Be aware of sales targets. Many high street retailers have specific tie-ins to a particular manufacturer/brand. The hearing aid they have suggested may still be the correct one for you, but do your research so that you know why they might have recommended it.

If in doubt, feel free to give us a call. That's what we're here for.

Do I need one hearing aid or two?

If you have a significant hearing loss in both ears, you should be wearing two hearing aids. Here are the audiological reasons why:

Localisation. The brain decodes information from both ears and compares and contrasts them. By analysing the miniscule time delays as well as the difference in loudness of each sound reaching the ears, the person is able to accurately locate a sound source. Simply put, if you have better hearing on one side than the other, you can't accurately tell what direction sounds are coming from.

Less amplification required. A phenomena known as “binaural summation” means that the hearing aids can be set at a lower and more natural volume setting than than if you wore only one hearing aid.

Head shadow effect. High frequencies, the part of your hearing that gives clarity and meaning to speech sounds, cannot bend around your head. Only low frequencies can. Therefore if someone is talking on your unaided side you are likely to hear that they are speaking, but be unable to tell what they have said.

Noise reduction. The brain has it’s own built in noise reduction which is only really effective when it is receiving information from both ears. If only one ear is aided, even with the best hearing aid in the world, it will be difficult for you to hear in background noise as your brain is trying to retain all of the sounds (including background noise) rather than filtering it out.

Sound quality. We are designed to hear in stereo. Only hearing from one side sounds a lot less natural to us.

What are the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids?

For most people, the main benefit of a rechargeable hearing aid is simple convenience. We are used to plugging in our phones and other devices overnight for them to charge up. 

For anybody with poor dexterity or issues with their fingers, having a rechargeable aid makes a huge difference as normal hearing aid batteries are quite small and some people find them fiddly to change.

One downside is that if you forget to charge your hearing aid, then it is a problem that can't be instantly fixed. For most a 30 minute charge will get you at least two or three hours of hearing, but if you are the type of person who is likely to forget to plug them in regularly then you're probably better off with standard batteries.

Rechargeable aids are also a little bit bigger and are only available in behind the ear models.

Finally, just like with a mobile phone, the amount of charge you get on day one is not going to be the same as you get a few years down the line. Be sure to ask what the policy is with the manufacturer warranty when it comes to replacing the battery.

 

Are behind the ear aids better than in the ear aids?

For most people, the answer is yes. But it's never that simple.

The majority of hearing problems affect the high frequencies a lot more than the low ones. Therefore open fitting hearing aids sound a lot more natural and ones that block your ears up can make your own voice sound like you are talking with your head in a bucket. Therefore in-ear aids tend to be less natural.

However the true answer is we can't tell until we have had a look in your ears to assess the size of your ear canal, and until we have tested your hearing to see which frequencies are being affected.

People with wider ear canals tend to have more flexibility, also there are open fitting modular CIC hearing aids now that do not block your ears.

There is also the age old rule to consider, that a hearing aid will not help you if it's sat in the drawer gathering dust. If the only hearing aid you would be happy wearing is one that people can't see, then that's what you should get.

Most people can adapt to any type of hearing aid, as long as they know what to expect. Have an honest conversation with your audiologist as to what your needs are.

What are channels, and how many do I need?

Generally speaking, six or more. Unless it's none at all.

The number of channels a hearing aid has is often a simplistic way an audiologist will use to explain why one hearing aid is better than another, but channels are complex and it is really not that straightforward.

Hearing aids amplify sounds of different frequencies by different amounts. Most people have lost more high frequencies than low and therefore need more amplification in the high frequencies. The range of sounds you hear are split into frequency bands or channels and the hearing aids are set to provide the right amount of hearing at each frequency level.

Less than six channels and this cannot be done with much accuracy, so six is the magic number. However, a six channel aid is typically very basic with few other features and is suitable only for hearing a single speaker in a quiet room. The number of channels is not what you should be looking at, it's more the rest of the technology that comes with them.

As a final note, different manufacturers have different approaches. One method is not necessarily better than any other. For example some manufacturers have as many as 64 channels in their top aids. Most tend to have between 17 and 20. One manufacturer has no channels at all.
