How does PureSound work?
The PureSound experience is enabled by Widex ZeroDelay™ Technology. This includes the ZeroDelay Pathway, which is an alternative to the Widex Classic signal pathway that powers the Universal and specialized programs.
The Classic pathway contains all the digital signal processing features you would expect from Widex, while the ZeroDelay Pathway uses adapted versions to deliver sound with next-to-no comb-filter effect.
Because the PureSound program still includes most of the features that you would expect from digital hearing aids, it’s very suitable as an everyday program for users with mild-to-moderate hearing losses. Hearing aids that benefit all users
The comb-filter effect problem is mainly an issue for completely open ear tips, but since instant ear tips are rarely entirely closed
, it poses a potential problem for all instant ear tips.
Instant ear tips account for around 82% of hearing aid sales in the US. This means that the comb-filter effect is potentially an issue for many hearing aid users. Especially for those with mild-to-moderate hearing loss, who are more likely to have the open and vented fittings where the problem is most widespread.
For users with more severe hearing loss, the WIDEX MOMENT™ Universal program is still characterized by the Widex focus on great sound quality.
Thanks to the possibility of both processing options, the WIDEX MOMENT™ hearing aids provide an optimal solution for all, including users who are new to hearing aids and will no longer have to struggle with getting used to the sound of delay.What do users think about PureSound™? Read the research
