Previously for people with hearing aids windy days meant not being able to wear them. Thanks to Widex technology, wind doesn’t have to be a issue for hearing aid users. In Florida with the amount of people we have that spend time on or near the water this is great news. It’s all thanks to the Widex Wind Noise Attenuation System and here is what you should know about it and how it works.
Reducing Wind Noise: How They Do It
A survey once listed wind noise as the “second worst listening situation” for hearing aid users. This is because wind noise can create turbulence as it moves past the hearing aid’s microphone, making it more difficult to hear the sound that you want to hear.
To solve this problem, Widex created a weather cover over the microphone of behind-the-ear hearing aids.
With UNIQUE, Widex’ hearing aids, wind protection is taken to the next level. It’s all thanks to the Wind Noise Attenuation System. With this system in place, hearing aids can automatically detect wind noise – and react immediately.
What does this mean for hearing aid users?
The wind reduction system gives hearing aid users:
- Improved speech understanding.
- The ability to keep hearing aids on during a windy day or during windy activities.
- Automatic and quick adaption in all types of weather.
Here’s an example of how it might work for you.
