Widex MOMENT Sheer Hearing Aid Solution Wins 2022 GOOD DESIGN AWARD
7 Oct 2022
LYNGE, DENMARK, October 7th, 2022 – Widex has been named a 2022 GOOD DESIGN AWARD winner for the new Widex MOMENT Sheer hearing aid solution, including its charger and jewel case, redesigned TV PLAY, and their presentation boxes, based on its use of design to enrich people’s lives.
Widex MOMENT Sheer was selected for “A design that is not ‘typical’ of conventional hearing aids, in the best sense of the word. The concept of ‘expressing the pleasure of using hearing aids’ is successfully achieved through the design. The well-planned industrial design in every detail and the TV viewing device with regenerative fabric may encourage even ‘non-users’ to try the hearing aid. The software developed alongside the attractive hardware is based on unique sound quality technology that enables even first-time users to ‘hear naturally and without discomfort’. The device is a perfect combination of a light, unworn feel, beautiful design down to the smallest detail, and ease of use.”
“With Widex MOMENT Sheer, we’ve combined excellence in natural sound processing, engineering, and product design to establish a new standard in hearing technology,” said Claudia Schiffhauer, VP Widex Brand. “Moving us one step closer to hearing perfection, Sheer enables wearers to feel more connected to the world around them – and we’re honored to receive this esteemed recognition from the judges at GOOD DESIGN AWARDS.”
The Widex MOMENT Sheer hearing aid solution features an enhanced version of MySound, which was the first hearing aid application on the market where AI operates in real-time on the user’s preferences to create personalized listening experiences.
The new solution also debuts Widex SoundRelaxTM, an expanded library of fractal sounds, which bring the calming effect of soft tones and modulated nature sounds to wearers with and without tinnitus. To achieve most Natural Sound, Widex PureSound with ZeroDelay delivers the fastest sound processing available, eliminating artificial sound while making it easier for wearers to discern speech and place sounds around them.
Widex MOMENT Sheer hearing aids boast a sleek, refined design and new microphone covers with a raised step running around the edge. Its charger is more stable and redesigned for better ease of use – with charging slots rotated 180 degrees compared to the previous model for more intuitive hearing aid insertion and a greater degree of color contrast between the slots and the case’s background. The included jewel case is secure and easy to use, with a latch to keep the hearing aids safe when stored.
