Widex Inc. today announced that it has been recognized by Digital Trends Media Group with a Tech for Change Award at CES 2021 for its WIDEX MOMENT™ hearing aids. Recipients were selected based on innovations intended to make the world a better place, as displayed during CES.

Digital Trends is one of the world’s most well-respected consumer technology publications, and is widely viewed as the authoritative voice promoting the technologies influencing and impacting consumers across the globe.

WIDEX MOMENT was selected for having pioneered the first digital hearing aid to incorporate dual artificial intelligence engines to improve real-time listening. Furthermore, the WIDEX MOMENT leverages ZeroDelay™ technology to reduce the standard sound delay from 7-10 milliseconds seconds to just 0.5 milliseconds to give people with hearing loss the most natural hearing experience available.

“Hearing aids have historically delivered a ‘tinny’, tube-like sound due to the delay in digital sound processing; as the leader in natural sound, Widex could not stand for this,” stated Søren Hvidberg Nielsen, President of Widex US. “Our engineers have worked tirelessly for five years to overcome this technical challenge, and with our breakthrough WIDEX MOMENT hearing aids we’ve now succeeded.”

Continued Nielsen, “These intelligent devices go far beyond simply boosting speech perception, offering wearers a true-to-life sound experience that’s been elusive until now. We are honored that Digital Trends Media Group recognized WIDEX MOMENT as an innovative, class-leading wearable and wellness device designed to make the world a better place through natural sound for all.”

Widex has pioneered the use of artificial intelligence to create a more personalized sound experience, which in turn leads to higher wearer acceptance and usage. WIDEX MOMENT leverages SoundSense Learn, an AI-based technology, to personalize hearing aid settings in two ways.

First, WIDEX MOMENT learns how users prefer to hear their surroundings by analyzing settings and guiding them through a series of A-B comparisons. Second, an advanced AI-algorithm draws from millions of user settings stored in the cloud to help personalize the listening experience.

Furthermore, WIDEX MOMENT also includes the PureSound™ ZeroDelay™ technology, a groundbreaking parallel processing path that all but eliminates latency, resulting in a more natural sound without the “tinny” distortions associated with other hearing aids.

The net result of these two breakthrough technologies is a more perfect, natural sound that’s uniquely and automatically tailored to each wearer’s listening preferences and profile.

Digital Trends Media Group’s Tech for Change Awards are part of the company’s Tech for Change Series that focuses on innovations in technology that directly impact well-being to make the world a better place.
