Widex Hearing Aids
Our Manhattan office is proud to offer Widex hearing aids. Founded in 1956, Widex is a Danish manufacturer of hearing aids known for their trademark Widex Sound. The Widex Sound provides people with hearing loss access to a full spectrum of sounds, amplifying the softest sounds and making sure that the loudest ones are comfortable. Widex is committed to advancing hearing aid technology and was the first to develop a digital in-the-ear hearing aid. In 2012, Widex received the European Inventor Award for their research and innovation with hearing devices.
The Beyond hearing aid gives people exceptional direct connectivity and leading-edge sound, and is compatible with both Android and Apple devices. It comes with a customizable app that allows full streaming functionality and control over their listening environment.

Widex Zen Tinnitus Therapy
The Widex Zen Tinnitus Therapy system tackles the linked issues of hearing loss and tinnitus with four steps: 1) counseling – to educate and assist the limbic system to alter its negative interpretation of tinnitus via cognitive and behavioral intervention; 2) amplification – to stimulate the ears and brain and to prevent over compensation; 3) fractal tones – known as Zen tones, designed to relax and provide acoustic stimulation; and 4) relaxation – behavioral exercises and sleep management strategies. The Zen Tinnitus Therapy program is available as a standalone device, Zen2Go, or is incorporated into other Widex hearing aids.

Dex is a family of personal amplifiers that allow wearers to connect their hearing aids to phones and hearing loop systems.
