Widex USA has announced Widex My Sound, a portfolio of AI features including a new solution that instantly enables intelligent customisation of the company’s MOMENT hearing aids according to users’ activity and listening intent.

This third generation of Widex AI tech means the app-launched MySound can draw from cloud-based data from Widex users worldwide to provide the user with two recommendations, which can both be listened to before selecting the settings that sound best. A fallback option if these sounds don't satisfy is provided by launching SoundSense Learn from the same screen to further personalise the user's hearing experience through an A/B testing process.

The Widex MOMENT app, including My Sound with SoundSense Learn, is available for Apple and Android devices and is designed to work with Widex MOMENT Bluetooth hearing aids.

“Widex is leading the industry by combining artificial intelligence and human intelligence to create natural sound experiences and foster social participation through better hearing,” said Jodi Sasaki-Miraglia, Widex’s Director of Professional Training and Education. “Once Widex Moment is fit properly by a local licensed hearing care professional, the user can, if necessary, customize their hearing aids with ease, choosing from multiple AI features. Plus, our latest generation delivers results in just seconds, putting control and intelligent personalization into the hands of every user.”

“Instead of having to program the hearing aid in a way that covers all situations the user might encounter, the hearing care professional ensures the best possible starting point for the user and My Sound then allows users to personalize their experience in real life, easily and instantly. In this way, the hearing solution adapts to the user’s preferences and becomes even more personal,” continued Sasaki-Miraglia.
