The Widex Moment hearing aids are quite possibly one of the most exciting things in the world of hearing aids at this time. Saying something is exciting about hearing aids is not always an easy thing. What makes this hearing aid system exciting is that we are getting as close to the purest digital sound processing in a hearing aid that we have ever gotten before. That being said, the Widex Moment hearing aids are not without fault, but they are definitely a step in the right direction. We will discuss the pros and cons here.
Widex hearing aids have always had a certain type of sound. Those who have worn Widex hearing aids tend to prefer Widex hearing aids over any other hearing aids. I would liken the Widex hearing aid sound to what people experience with listening to a Bose™ sound system. There is something magical about that experience that you can’t quite explain, but you are loving every part of it.
The Widex Moment brings their ZeroDelay Puresound processing which is rather complicated to explain but to simplify when amplified sound from a hearing aid doesn’t meet the direct sound at the same time in the eardrum, it creates an artificial sound experience. But new revolutionary ZeroDelay Technology overcomes this to give you pure and natural sound – the PureSound experience. See the video here.
The Widex Moment hearing aids come in custom In-The-Ear (CIC, ITC, ITE) models and three Receiver In Canal (RIC) models including their new, first-ever Lithium-Ion rechargeable model.
The limitations of the Widex Moment at this time are that their ITE and RIC models are not all created the same with the expected features that Widex suggests they have. It seems as though the ZeroDelay processing and their PureSound processing program are only available in their RIC hearing aids with either an S or M receiver (power levels for their speakers). ITE models in all form factors, as well as any hearing aid with a P or HP receivers, will not have access to this specialized program. Widex suggests that either later versions with updated firmware or even a new model series will have these features available in the future. This is somewhat disappointing, but don’t let it deter you from auditioning these hearing aids. They do sound quite good.
All in all, the Widex Moment is a solid hearing aid with excellent sound quality, built-in durability, and available in all form factors and they are compatible with all DEX accessories.
