About Widex UNIQUE

You might recognize the new Widex UNIQUE 440. On the outside it looks very similar to the Widex Dream 440, and Widex Passion 440, but on the inside it sports a few significant changes. The new UNIQUE platform introduces "Sound Class Technology", which provides "automated classification of sound environments and optimal sound processing determined by the sound classes," four wide-input analog-to-digital converters and a new "Wind Noise Attenuation" that Widex claims provides dramatically reduced wind noise.

Widex UNIQUE Reviews

Hearing aid reviews are fundamentally different from reviews for most other consumer electronic products. The reason is because individual factors, like degree of hearing loss, have a profound effect one's success and overall satisfaction with the product. When purchasing a hearing aid, you'll need to consider more than just your hearing outcome. Hearing aids are manufactured with varying levels of quality; some hearing aids are extremely durable, while others suffer frequent breakage. Battery life also varies between models, and manufacturer predictions of battery life are often optimistic. By collecting feedback from consumers, we can get a better idea of real world product durability and battery life... Continue reading

This is the third set of aids I've owned. The last was Oticon Nera Pro which I liked. These are better in terms of performance and the passion size is great in terms of visibility/style.

Member 15 August 2018

Recently upgraded to these hearing aids and am still evaluating their performance.

William N. 14 August 2018

My biggest problem with my hearing aids is probably the same as everyone else who wears hearing aids. When I am in a complex scenario such as a crowded restaurant or busy lobby, my comprehension of the spoken word is less than 50%. Wish that for the type of money spent it was better than that.

capelyddol 14 August 2018

I've only been wearing them for a month and they're still under test. I've had three appointments with my audi during this time and their performance has improved after tweaking. I expect they will continue to do so and my star rating may well increase over time. I will almost certainly be keeping them. I've not tested any others but I feel I'll eventually be happy with the Widex Unique 440s.

Sebrena A. 14 August 2018

I'm getting an ear mold to help with the feedback but otherwise the Widex hearing aids work great. The sound is clear and they are comfortable to wear.

Member 20 December 2016

I have moderate to severe tinnitus which will not go away. However, the hearing aids do help me function and do help to relieve the worst effects of the disease.

Beth P. 11 August 2016

Excellent hearing aids! the Unique 440's were the 3rd set I tried,- no other sets sounded "natural" but when I came to Sound Advice, Kathleen took the time to address problems I had with other aids & found the right fit for me! I Highly recommend these aids & Sound Advice.

Currently trialing a pair of Widex Unique 440's to replace my 6 year old Passion Mind 440's. The difference is several orders of magnitude better. I remember in the audiologists office, putting on the Uniques and thinking something was not quite right. I just wasn't hearing what I usually heard with my old aids. It wasn't until I left the office and a couple of hours later that I figured out what the problem was: I WASN'T hearing all that background noise that the old aids were picking up. The Uniques sounded far more natural. Traffic sounds no longer drove me crazy, the incredible noise in my car was no longer bothersome. At home I was no longer hearing the loud sounds of AC units and refrigerators - BUT I was hearing the things I wanted to hear. In crowded restaurants where I had previously always switched to a muted "comfort" program, I was actually able to enjoy the meal despite being seated near the bar area where loud music was playing. I actually could forget I was wearing the aids, they were that comfortable (from a sound perspective). Stores, crying babies, so far everything seems to be better. No problem with voice/tv, etc. Even phone usage is easier and better. Granted I have only had them a few days, but so far, I am very impressed. Not having to change programs (the aids do it automatically for you) is a real blessing, as I no longer have to carry a remote. These are definitely worth your attention if you are thinking of buying or upgrading hearing aids.

Charles M. 18 July 2016

I have only been evaluating these for about a month, its a very natural sounding hearing aid and the switching between "soundclasses" is pretty seamless. I wish it had the ability to turn off the back microphones like Phonak, which makes this less effective in noisy situations. The streamer that plugs into the phone and worn around the neck is terrific for phone or computer use. Only for speech though, music sounds pretty awful. In general, music is not great with these. Do not use the standalone music program, it sounds quite unnatural. Best is to have the audiologist add a 2nd Universal program and "freeze" that one for music use I have not decided to keep these yet, still evaluating.

Maurice M. 04 April 2016

I am 75 years old and have had these hearing aids for a few weeks and found them to be extremely easy to fit after an initial problem with domes which were both uncomfortable and gave the impression that they were blocking out normal hearing and that my ear canal was closed. Eventually requested my Audiologist to give me a selection of various types and sizes of domes and decided on the small tulip type and bingo sounds were improved to 'normal' once again. These were my first hearing aids and to say I was surprised to hear sounds I had forgotten about years ago would be a serious understatement. Can now hear birds singing in the trees and bushes, traffic sounds are now clear making driving and walking so much safer as I am aware of road users. Purchased the remote control and had it programmed for volume, music and comfort. One problem that bugs me is the sound of the wind whistling past my ears so I am hoping Widex will be able to resolve that and if so my review to be 5 stars in all respects bar the cost which I think is rather high.

The new Widex aids are wonderful and I am amazed at how easy they are to use.

Melyik laborban voltál? Ilyenen gondolkozom én is. Akkor nem ajánlod? Köszönöm
Member 19 February 2018
I've got the 440s and my audiologist installed a Widex program called "Transport". Although it was originally intended to lower road noise, it's phenomenal for reducing ambient noise in crowded surroundings. Absolutely amazing! Hope this helps someone.

perdi un audifono del par Fusion 440, como puedo reemplazarlo. Gracias
Member 23 April 2018
I have had my Widex UNIQUE Passion 440 hearing aids for over a year and am generally quite pleased with them. I am troubled by a cracking noise often caused by running water, paper bags, flushing toilets, etc. Has anyone else experienced this and how can it be handled?
