The Danish hearing aid manufacturer, Widex, launched the Dream range of products in February 2013 and is now increasingly commonplace came out with multiple product styles and offered them with four different levels of technology, all based upon the new True ISP chip platform. This strategy of a vast range of products is designed to maximise the return of the research and www.lopment spend by offering a product suitable for the majority of hearing losses, the majority of hearing aid types and the majority of people’s pockets. So shift carefully through the Widex Dreams to find your perfect combination.
The Dream 330 is the second technology tier of the four tier series and is manufactured as both BTE (behind the ear) and ITE (in the ear) product types. The BTEs come in four sizes using both micro-tubing, RIC and RITE methodology to deliver the sound to your ear. This will give you another selection headache but take the time to discuss the options with your hearing aid audiologist. There are advantages and disadvantages to each product, so ensure that your Dream is the best that it can be to suit your loss, your lifestyle and your needs. The ITEs are overtly more discrete but as with all www.ces that are placed in the ear they are likely to be more prone to reliability issues than the more robust BTEs.
While the product style can be a diverting conundrum, the real meat to the Dream 330 is the internal processing. There is no benefit in having a discrete comfortable solution unless the sound processing delivers the amplification and clarity that you require. Within the 330 technology level the True ISP chip is configured as a 10 channel processor and the sound can be delivered in up to four programmes. The programmes can be set up to include a personalisation to suit your degree and pace of acclimatisation.
Widex has an enviable reputation for sound quality and it is often said that once people experience a Widex hearing aid they will stick with the brand considering its sound quality to be superior to alternative manufacturers. The driver behind this sound is the combination of algorithms that operate within the hearing aid, focusing, clarifying and amplifying the required sound while diminishing or removing unwanted noise. The algorithms in isolation mean little and that is also true of the way that they work. They combine to form the Widex sound that you can experience through the Dream 330.
The Dream 330 also has a wireless capability and can link through Bluetooth to the Widex DEX range of accessories. This can stream the sound of a compatible household item, like a mobile phone, directly into the hearing aid, enabling perfect amplification www.id of interference from surrounding sounds. Bluetooth is now the norm and rapidly superseding the telecoil use within hearing aids, so investigate what you use that could be wireless and see if the benefits make sense to your lifestyle needs.
As a second tier of technology the Dream 330 has much of what is best about the entire Dream product yet is positioned at a more affordable point than the premium 440. By all means consider what is on offer at higher or lower specifications but we suggest that the Dream 330 is a very competent hearing system and should deliver the benefit that you need in almost every environment you experience.
