Danish family-owned hearing aid manufacturer Widex is known for its high-end sound quality and patient loyalty. Widex is the home of Sensogram technology, where hearing sensitivity is measured through the hearing aids themselves, as well as Zen, a tinnitus treatment system.
Widex created the world’s first fully digital in-the-ear hearing aid, as well as its own revolutionary wireless technology. In 2010, the company released the world’s first hearing aid designed specifically for babies, followed up by the world’s first receiver-in-the-ear super power hearing aid in 2011 and the ultimate invisible in-canal hearing aid in 2012. In 2014, Widex released UNI-DEX, a neck-worn, hands-free device that streams audio from mobile phones and other audio devices to a user’s hearing aids.
The Widex headquarters in Denmark is an eco-friendly building that combines the use of renewable energy with maximum energy recovery. The structure uses a groundwater heating and cooling system which emits 70 percent less CO2 to the environment than traditional heating systems.
