WIDEX MOMENT, the first digital hearing aid to include dual artificial intelligence engines to improve real-time listening, has been named a CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honouree.
The recognition comes in the Health & Wellness and Wearable Technologies categories ahead of the first-ever, all-digital CES Innovation Awards, which are held on 11-14, January 2021.
“Widex engineers have worked tirelessly over five years to create a unique, natural hearing platform like WIDEX MOMENT,” said Søren Hvidberg Nielsen, President of Widex US.
“Hearing aids aren’t only used to amplify speech. For people who benefit from them, they open a far wider aural window onto the lives they want to experience. We are grateful the CES Innovation Awards judges recognised the incredible potential of WIDEX MOMENT as a wearable and wellness device.”
The WIDEX MOMENT utilises artificial intelligence to create a better sound experience that leads to higher user acceptance. The device’s SoundSense Learn technology adjusts hearing aid settings in two ways using artificial intelligence. First, WIDEX MOMENT learns how users prefer to hear their surroundings by analysing settings and guiding them through a series of A-B comparisons. Second, they draw from millions of user settings stored in the cloud to help personalise the listening experience.
WIDEX MOMENT hearing aids also include Widex PureSound™ ZeroDelay™ technology, a groundbreaking parallel processing path that all but eliminates latency, resulting in a more natural sound without the ‘tinny’ distortions associated with other hearing aids. By reducing processing latency to just 0.5 milliseconds, Widex ZeroDelay provides users with a new level of clear, natural sound not possible in older devices.
