WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR
When it’s noisy, you need your hearing aid to filter out anything that can distract from hearing speech. But in quiet situations, you want to hear all the subtle details.
EVOKE has a built-in Fluid Sound Controller that sets the optimal sound for different sound environments. Now hearing aid adjustment is easy, and EVOKE quickly adapts to the changes in your life.
In the world of audiology, every sound has its own “recipe.” And the more lifelike the sound, the easier it is to hear. That’s why we’ve given EVOKE the most natural sound you can get from a hearing aid.
You might want to hear metal at a rock concert – but not metallic sound in your hearing aid. Experience the difference in quality for yourself.
Receiver in Canal (RIC)
Receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids are similar to BTE’s in shape and style, but are smaller because the receiver (or the loudspeaker) is placed in the ear-tip instead of the housing. These hearing aids are most suitable if you have mild to severe hearing loss.
With RIC hearing aids, sound is sent directly from the housing behind your ear through a thin wire to the receiver which is in your ear canal. Not only do they provide outstanding sound, they are discreet and are fully automatic.
For users with more severe hearing losses or smaller ear canals, Behind-the-ear hearing aids (BTE) - are a great solution.
All the electronic parts in the hearing aids are in the housing that sits behind your ear. A customised earmould and a tube direct sound into your ear. You can easily control volume and select programmes on most BTE's.
ITE hearing aids are suitable for most types of hearing losses. They are usually small like an eartip and sit in the outer portion of the ear canal. Depending on the size of the ear canal an in the ear hearing aid may be relatively discreet.
When you are fitted for an ITE, the shell of the hearing aid is custom-made to fit the shape of your ear. This shell contains all vital electronics and is great for people on-the-go who need their hearing aids to stay in place. The batteries are inserted via a battery door located directly on the hearing aid. They can be easily removed with a small magnetic wand.
Completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids are a great option for those with mild to moderate-severe hearing loss who are looking for a discreet hearing aid solution.
Depending on the size and shape of your ear, a CIC hearing aid can fit deep inside the ear canal, making it almost invisible. All Widex CIC hearing solutions are fully automatic - so you can hear clear and natural sounds with minimal or no intervention. CIC hearing aids can be removed via a small extension cord.
