Tinnitus appears in 80% to 90% of hearing loss cases, which is why it is addressed head-on by Widex with their ZEN Tinnitus Therapy. Tinnitus, “a ringing of the ears,” produces frustrating and distracting sounds which has been found to interfere with concentration, sleep, and memory.
ZEN Tinnitus Therapy is a four-part treatment that consists of counseling, amplification, fractal tones (ZEN Tones), and relaxation. ZEN Tinnitus Therapy provides relaxing and stimulating synthetic sounds to redirect your brain away from the tinnitus sounds. With behavioral exercises and sleep management strategies, ZEN offers a holistic approach to treating this frustrating condition.
ZEN Tinnitus Therapy is available in select Widex hearing aid models, and also as a standalone tinnitus device called ZEN2Go.
Widex offers hearing solutions for people who experience single-sided hearing loss, with the CROS. CROS and BiCROS hearing aids pick up sounds from the non-hearing side and transmit audio signals wirelessly to a device worn in the hearing ear. These sounds are analyzed and balanced, providing wearers with a fuller picture of sound in any environment. CROS hearing aids help people with directionality and speech recognition. Widex CROS aids are worn in the behind-the-ear style.
For those who experience higher degrees of hearing loss (severe to profound), Widex offers the SUPER hearing aid. SUPER provides higher levels of speech recognition, sound amplification, and noise reduction, and performs well in noisy environments that could interfere with speech sounds. SUPER also boasts features to assist with directionality. Equipped with a long battery life and weather-resistant coating, SUPER is a great choice for those with active lifestyles. For all of its power, SUPER is a discreet and small hearing aid, available in the receiver-in-canal style.
