Widex To Offer Rechargeable Beyond Z


On September 14, 2017, Widex announced the launch of BEYOND Z – a rechargeable solution for its highly successful BEYOND range of hearing aids, created in collaboration with ZPower. BEYOND Z lets users stream better and longer – second to none and also includes a retrofit option for existing BEYOND users.

“Since launching BEYOND in November 2016, our global sales have grown very nicely. The combination of superior sound quality and effortless smartphone integration in BEYOND is proving to be a popular solution for hearing-aid users,” said Jørgen Jensen, CEO, Widex.

BEYOND already has the lowest power drain of any streaming hearing aid. With the introduction of the rechargeable BEYOND Z, Widex can provide the longest streaming time of any rechargeable hearing aid in the market – without ever compromising the superior WIDEX sound performance.

Not only that, current BEYOND users will be able to get BEYOND Z by having their current BEYOND hearing aids retrofitted.

Until recently, rechargeable hearing aids were limited to using nickel–metal hydride (NiMH) batteries that frequently deliver less than a full day of power. ZPower has created an innovative silver-zinc rechargeable battery technology that when combined with Widex market leading low power consumption delivers a full day of power on a single charge.

“Right now, the market is also offering rechargeable hearing aids. So, building on the success of BEYOND, the introduction of a rechargeable option was a natural next step,” according to Jørgen Jensen, CEO, Widex.

At Schmidt’s Optical and Hearing™ we carry Widex brand hearing aids, including the made for iPhone hearing aid BEYOND.  Call us today at 772-286-4327 and schedule your FREE comprehensive hearing screening with our Board Certified Hearing Aid and Tinnitus Specialist.
