Widex hearing aids are top rated for seniors.
Amie Clark

Founded in 1956, Widex is a family-owned company based in Denmark. Using a network of distributors, the company sells its extensive list of hearing devices in more than 100 countries around the world and is one of the most popular audiology companies serving people who are hard of hearing today.

History of the Company

Since its founding more than six decades ago, Widex has established its reputation as a top manufacturer of high-quality hearing devices. The company’s focus on creating new technology has steadily placed it as a frontrunner in the industry since the early 1990s, when it first patented Computer-Aided Manufacturing of Individual Shells for Hearing Aids. CAMISHA was a groundbreaking technology at the time, and Widex hasn’t slowed down since. By the mid-1990s, it had created the first digital in-ear model, and today, its devices use a wide variety of technologies.

The Widex Philosophy

Technology isn’t the only important pillar of the Widex company. The organization’s vision is to provide a means of unlimited access to hearing devices for people around the world. It attempts to meet this vision by focusing on five core values:

Widex is a unique company in that it also provides hearing devices designed specifically for children and teenagers. These hearing aids provide the best fit for small ears and focus on listening situations such as classrooms, playgrounds, or when using electronics. These hearing devices are available in a range of kid-friendly colors, such as red, pink, and green. Widex’s options for children, including for babies, offer Bluetooth connectivity, flexibility, and a range of other features fit for little ears.

The cost of these products varies and depends on thorough evaluation from a professional, licensed audiologist.

The Cost of Listening

Instead of selling directly to the consumer, Widex sells its hearing devices to audiologists and a network of other professionals around the world. For this reason, the price of devices varies not only by the model and features but also by the location at which they’re sold. You can get the best deal by speaking with your audiologist and your insurance provider. In some cases, organizations such as Veterans’ Affairs will also provide assistance.
