Let's Talk About The Widex Fashion
The Widex Fashion, a powerful but discreet BTE solution that was introduced a few years ago. Let's take a look a closer look at the Fashion
Introduced by Widex a couple of years ago. The Fashion replaces their 9, 19 and M hearing aid which they have discontinued in their Unique hearing aid range. The Fashion is a traditional BTE aid which covers many losses from mild to severe. It is quite versatile and it can be fitted with either a traditional tube and mold, or a thin tube and instant tip.
As we said, it covers many hearing losses, but, it is still a discreet option. The device is quite thin if a little long in comparison to the old M. However, this slightly bigger size brings big benefits for the user.
It has an easy to use combination program and volume control button which gives you full control as you move around different situations during the day. It also has telecoil receiver which allows you to connect to loop systems. On top of that is a bigger battery which is easier to handle and gives you more time between changes.
Widex have always had a fantastic power management system which meant they could run hearing aids on smaller batteries. They have introduced a new power management system which again extends the power to consumption ratio. It simply means that the aids can do more for longer with the same battery. The Fashion is also wireless enabled and will connect to any of the Widex wireless accessories.
I am not saying that BTE hearing aids don't break down, they just break down the least.
I have fitted quite a few fashions and if possible I always tried to convince Patients that they were right for them because of their inherent reliability. BTEs are the most reliable hearing aids of the hearing aid types. I am not saying they don't break down. They just break down the least. As always, if you have any questions about the Widex Fashion, or any hearing aid, give us a shout.
