Hearing Aid Spotlight: Widex Evoke

Combining intelligent automation with the ability to personalize the wearer’s experience, Widex EVOKE delivers unparalleled sound quality and the industry’s best performance in noisy environments.  A 2018 Hearing Tracker survey found that hearing aid patients’ top priority is hearing better in noise—and Widex EVOKE delivers. A study reveals that 94% of wearers prefer Widex EVOKE in noise over their own non-Widex hearing aids.
In a recent study, after seven weeks spent switching four times between WIDEX EVOKE and their own hearing aids, users were more satisfied with WIDEX EVOKE across different real-life situations. Not only are users more satisfied with WIDEX EVOKE overall, and prefer EVOKE in noise, EVOKE is also the preferred choice in quiet.

Users prefer WIDEX EVOKE for soft sounds

Being able to hear soft sounds comes in handy in many situations, like when you’re trying to understand a soft-spoken conversation partner. That’s partly thanks to the Variable Speed Compressor, which maintains audibility for soft sounds following loud sounds. Meanwhile, the Soft Level Noise Reduction system removes constant low-level noises that you don’t want to hear, such as room ventilation and PC fans. These features are likely to contribute to enhanced audibility for soft speech – and overall higher satisfaction with the ability to hear soft sounds.

For noisy situations, users prefer WIDEX EVOKE

Noisy situations are particularly challenging for hearing aid users. And even for those who wear a hearing aid, hearing loss sometimes leads people to avoid everyday noisy situations – which in turn can be both harmful to health and quality of life.

In recent survey data from Hearing Tracker, 72% of respondents rate hearing in noisy settings as being most important and another 16% ranked it as the second most important category. In our study users evaluated six everyday noisy situations, like talking in noise or in large groups. The study showed that 94% were more satisfied with WIDEX EVOKE over non-Widex hearing devices in noise.

Why do users prefer WIDEX EVOKE?

Widex believes it’s thanks to its unique combination of automation and personalization – The EVOKE Advantage. Fluid Sound Technology is the automatic system that identifies every sound situation the listener is in and then adjusts to it using a number of features. EVOKE delivers the Natural Sound Advantage.

The personalization ADVANTAGE

SoundSense Learn is a real-time personalization solution driven by machine learning, allowing wearers to optimize their hearing in the moment. Even the best automatic hearing aid can’t predict what the wearer wants to hear in all situations. It’s in these situations that SoundSense Learn is a convenient and helpful tool – the first of its kind, bringing the hearing aid wearer closer to perfect hearing.  In the Widex survey, 72% of those who had used SoundSense Learn said it had helped them improve a listening situation – and 80% would recommend the feature to others.
