Widex MOMENT BTE R D – Rechargeable Hearing Aids w/ Mobile Streaming

Hearing loss is a fairly common problem that can be caused by noise, aging, disease, and even heredity. According to the World Health Organization, over 5% of the world’s population (around 430 million people) will require rehabilitation at some point in their life to address their hearing loss. It is also estimated that by 2050 over 700 million people (1 in every 10 people) will suffer from hearing loss. People that suffer from hearing loss might find it hard to have conversations with other family members and friends, or even find it difficult to listen to their favorite tunes, to a TV program, or to the many sounds in a movie. And while  there are many different brands of hearing aids on the market that are designed for hearing loss compensation by featuring different functionalities such as speech intelligibility, noise reduction, and more, it can still be hard for people suffering from hearing loss to choose a hearing aid that’s properly suited for addressing their hearing health. Nevertheless, unlike most standard hearing aids that only make sound audible again, there’s a new innovative model of hearing aids designed to offer you a sound so natural and pristine that you’ll immediately be able to recognize your own voice, all of the sounds around you, and the voices of your loved ones. Those are called the Widex MOMENT BTE R D.

The Widex MOMENT BTE R D are rechargeable behind-the-ear hearing aids that are powered by an innovative Puresound technology for a quicker and better sound processing with zero distortion, all while also featuring up to 37 hours of battery life and direct streaming both for iPhone and Android devices.

Their unique and revolutionary Puresound technology ultimately makes these rechargeable behind-the-ear hearing aids capable of delivering a pure, undistorted and natural sound with absolutely no sound-delay thanks to their ZeroDelay sound processing.

All and all, the Widex MOMENT BTE R D can truly restore your hearing by greatly improving your sound perception, thus ultimately allows you to better connect with your surroundings.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at these earbuds and check out their design, see how they work, and talk a bit about everything that they have to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with their size, the Widex MOMENT BTE R D come at a very compact size. Moreover, these hearing aids are also quite lightweight.

That said, the MOMENT BTE R D are designed to reduce the risk of moisture damage on any of their internal components. It’s also worth noting that these hearing aids do not integrate any battery door, so there are even fewer gaps for moisture to sneak into.

So, no matter a user’s ear-size and/or ear-shape, these are designed to offer you an universal fit, meaning that they can be worn by anyone.

In addition, their sound-receiver – which is composed by a set of ultra-durable microphones – is integrated directly into the hearing aids’ casing, which will be sitting nicely just behind a user’s ear.

What’s really interesting about these hearing aids is that the MOMENT BTE R D also come equipped with a standard Telecoil, as well as with a simple and easy-to-use Rocker Switch / Pushbutton, and also with a new audiologist-programmable LED Indicator.

Note that the hearing aids’ LED Indicator can be programmed to flash different colors and patterns to communicate the device’s current status to the wearer. These status could be just about anything, such as On/Off (ex: Green LED Light), a low battery-level (ex: Red LED Light), or even a successful Bluetooth connection (ex: Blue LED Light) or accessory pairing.

As an end result, both the hearing aid wearer as well as their caregiver (if they have one, which could potentially be the case for seniors) will equally be able to easily understand the status of the MOMENT BTE R D Hearing Aids through their visual LED indicator, which basically eliminates any sort of guesswork.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

We’ll now talk a little bit in detail about how exactly do these behind-the-ear hearing aids work.

First and foremost, it’s important to mention that the Widex MOMENT BTE R D Hearing Aids pack quite a bit of smart engineering on now.

As said before, these rechargeable behind-the-ear hearing aids are powered by an innovative Puresound technology, which basically allows the MOMENT BTE R D to have a quicker and better sound processing with zero sound distortion.

Note that most standard hearing aids typically have their processed sound reaching a user’s eardrum later than sound would normally be heard directly. So, whenever these two “out of sync” signals mix, you get an artificial sound.

However, unlike most standard hearing aids, the Puresound technology used on the MOMENT BTE R D ultimately allows these behind-the-ear hearing aids to process all surrounding noises / sounds with a lightening-fast speed thanks to their ZeroDelay sound processing.

As such, there’s literally none of that delay that’s commonly found on other hearing aids models, which is typically known by hearing aid users to cause that annoying “tinny” artificial sound.

The end result is a truly pure and natural sound that allows users to accurately hear all of the sounds on each and every moment.

WHO ARE THESE HEARING AIDS FOR?

Now, you might be wondering whether or not these behind-the-ear hearing aids are for you.

To put it simply, the Widex MOMENT BTE R D were designed for most people with hearing loss, more specifically, for anyone suffering from minimal / mild hearing loss up to moderately severe hearing loss, and in some situations, also for those that suffer from profound hearing loss.

That said, pretty much anyone that suffers from hearing loss can now benefit from the unique natural sound processing offered by these outstanding hearing aids.

Nonetheless, it’s still important to note that Widex doesn’t sell directly to consumers, nor do they conduct fittings remotely.

So, in order for the average person to get the Widex MOMENT Hearing Aids, you’ll first have to go to a hearing care professional in-person and get an official hearing test so that you can then be qualified as fitted for wearing the device.


( Note that Widex is also focused on helping all of its customers get started with the Widex MOMENT Hearing Aids today, as they have an Online Hearing Test available at their official website that allows you to test your hearing in less than five minutes).
