Press release
Newly updated smartphone app earns recognition in the Software & Mobile Apps category for offering a complete range of features and functionality that empower Widex wearers to take control of their Widex Moment hearing aids.

LYNGE, DENMARK, November 16, 2022 — Widex today announced that it has been named a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree1 for the WIDEX MOMENT smartphone app (iOS and Android), which is compatible with all WIDEX MOMENT hearing aids. All honorees and award winners were revealed during CES Unveiled New York on November 16th – ahead of CES 2023, taking place Jan. 5-8, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The WIDEX MOMENT app was recognized in the CES 2023 Innovation Awards Software & Mobile Apps category for giving wearers control over a wide range of features and functionality on their WIDEX MOMENT hearing aids. The newly updated app now provides access to the powerful, intuitive sound personalization system in MySound 2.0; relaxing fractal tones from Widex SoundRelax; tips and advice about using WIDEX MOMENT hearing aids with My Guide; and much more.

At Widex, delivering on the perfection of natural sound means putting wearers in control of their hearing experience,” said Claudia Schiffhauer, VP Global Head of Widex Brand.

With the updated WIDEX MOMENT smartphone app, it’s never been easier for wearers to get exactly the sound they prefer in the moments most important to them. Whether looking to adjust the volume, bass, middle, treble or compression of their hearing aids, personalize their listening intent, or unwind with relaxing tones — the WIDEX MOMENT app does it all through a sleek, simple-to-use interface. We are grateful to be recognized amongst an elite group of apps that make life easier for their users.

The new WIDEX MOMENT app delivers an enhanced version of the company’s hearing aid customization tool, MySound, which combines the power of artificial intelligence with wearer intent so wearers can hear what they want in various environments.
Widex updated MySound’s AI engine to include a new parameter — compression. With research showing significant variation in wearer preference across different compression settings, Widex identified it as an essential parameter to personalize. A more compressed sound can make it easier to hear sounds coming from a distance, while more expansion emphasizes nearer sounds and reduces sounds that are farther away.
The app also includes Widex SoundRelax, a new library of fractal sounds, which help wearers relax and concentrate, while alleviating tinnitus. Widex SoundRelax leverages fractal mathematics to generate constantly changing, soothing tones and chimes that never repeat. The experience is fully customizable, and there is a wide variety of selectable soundscapes.

Designed to maximize the comfort, performance and utility of WIDEX MOMENT hearing aids, Widex My Guide features comprehensive videos and articles on device storage, comfort, charging, care and maintenance, troubleshooting advice, as well as a reminder function to encourage daily hearing aid use. Furthermore, the WIDEX MOMENT app supports direct streaming of calls, music, podcasts and more from iOS and Android devices.

The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges reviewed submissions based on innovation, design and engineering excellence.

The WIDEX MOMENT app’s recognition as a CES Innovation Awards honoree is the latest in a string of wins for the company’s hardware and software technologies. The WIDEX MOMENT app is compatible with WIDEX MOMENT Sheer, the company’s latest hearing aid solution and winner of a 2022 GOOD DESIGN AWARD. Past program winners include Sony’s PlayStation 5, Lenovo’s ThinkPad, Toyota’s Harrier SUV, and Zoom’s video conferencing platform.

Furthermore, the app’s My Sound functionality was also just selected as a winner in the 2022 Hearing Technology Innovator awards, which honor technological innovation and achievement in the hearing industry.
