I absolutely love my hearing aids. They are extremely comfortable and I can wear them all day … I hear so much better. I am more confident listening either to one person or in a group. Recently, I was in a restaurant and did not experience any difficulty hearing the people at my table.Read full review
My audiologist had always sold me another high end brand, and this time around suggested Widex Evoke. I am absolutely ecstatic with my new devices. The music is crystal clear and realistic, and a phone app with built in equalizer is really amazing.Read full review
Widex hearing aids
Widex provides both behind-the-ear (BTE) and in-the-ear (ITE) styles; however, these styles have options to make the aid more discrete. To further disguise the devices, the standard ITE aid has the completely-in-canal (CIC) style, and the BTE aid has the receiver-in-ear (RIE) and a receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aid styles.
There are several Widex hearing aid accessories that make Widex a great buy. Widex’s Acclimatization Program helps first-time users slowly adjust to the new sounds they will be hearing. The Widex Zen program, which helps to manage the effects of tinnitus, also gets good reviews. Their Audibility Extender is designed to help wearers hear more high-pitched sounds. Every Widex hearing aid has a 30-day trial period. Hearing tests are available online.
Widex provides three models in both BTE and ITE styles: the UNIQUE, the EVOKE and the BEYOND.
- The UNIQUE model is geared for the more active individual. The unit provides a wider sound range to cover both soft and loud, better wind noise reduction, and sound isolation technology that will focus on pronounced sounds while silencing the softer noises.
- Widex states the EVOKE is the “world's first smart hearing aid.” Widex SoundSense Technology within the unit measures anonymous data gathered from your listening experiences and personalizes your hearing experience. For instance, the EVOKE can recognize if you are indoors or outside.
- The BEYOND model focuses on its integration with the personalized BEYOND app. With this app, you can individually adjust the volume between two hearing aids, control the directionality of the microphone and choose between clarity and comfort, all in the palm of your hand.
Widex hearing aids cost
Widex does not publish their hearing aid prices on their website — this is a fairly common practice in the hearing aid industry, especially for companies that do not sell their hearing aids directly. To learn more about Widex hearing aid prices, it’s best to speak to a Widex representative. We were able to find pricing from Widex dealers and have published them in the chart below.
How to buy Widex hearing aids
Widex doesn’t sell their devices directly to the consumer, but you can still reach out to a Widex representative to learn more about which Widex hearing aid will be the best fit for you. Make sure to have a hearing test with an audiologist or ENT doctor. This will help the Widex representative know which hearing aid is appropriate for your level of hearing loss. From there, they can direct you to a Widex hearing aid dealer who sells the hearing aid you need.

Took a few days to settle in, probably my ears adjusting to the new sonic environment. Took a couple of days to be able to put them on with ease. Very good outdoors in the wind, and indoors as well. The EVOKE handle conferences in large rooms (which had been an issue) with aplomb. Batteries last about a week. The instructions supplied are clear, and the box & kit are well designed. I haven't had to use tech support.
Hi Larry, we're delighted to learn of your great experience so far with the Evoke aids. Please do let us know if we can ever be off assistnace to you and your hearing professional in the future if ever needed. Thank you.
I'm very happy with my new hearing aids. I have been able to understand what people are saying in a crowded room. That was one of my biggest problems. I have one exception, the Bluetooth. I'm not sure if the problem is my Bluetooth, my phone, wifi or what, but the sound will cut in and out. I don't really notice this when I just use the hearing aids for normal hearing. But it's annoying when you listen to music and it cuts in and out. It's mostly in my left hearing aid. This has been a problem since day one. If I could get this resolved, I would be 100% satisfied.

Never had hearing aids before and was very hesitant to get them. They are amazing in the fact that I can actually have a conversation in a crowded loud room. I had an iPhone and the steaming and user friendliness was awesome. I just switched to the Pixel 3xl and cannot figure out for the life of me how to get my Spotify to stream through my hearing aids.
Hi Sam, thank you for sharing your experience and we're glad to hear you are getting much benefit from your new hearing aid technology. As far as connecting your new phone, we have a dedicated support line for assistance. Thank you
I love my new hearing aids, but the only problem I have is not knowing whether to pull them out of my ear by taking off the hearing aid itself, or pulling on the thin tube closest to the ear tip inside my ear, close to the area inside. One of the tubes broke not long after I got them, and because my ear canals are very narrow and it's sometimes difficult to gently push the wire in, I'm worried that this will happen again. One audiologist said to pull off the hearing aid itself first, then gently pull out the tube. Another suggested pulling from the inside of the ear and then taking off the hearing aid. Which is correct?
Hi Ruth, thank you for sharing your experience and we are glad to see that you are getting great benefit from your Widex hearing aids. To your question on how to be remove from your ear, it typically depends on the ear anatomy and style of device. In your case, it seems as it the receiver may be sitting deep in the ear canal so it would probably be best to remove by pulling on the part closer to the ear canal. Though, we suggest asking your hearing specialist for their recommendation at your next appointment. Thank you
I have been wearing hearing aids for twenty years. Seimens, Phonax and now Widex. I purchased the present Widex Evoke 330 aids in December of 2018 for $5,000. I have and nothing but trouble with them. I have rechargeable batteries and they just stop working. I've returned to the audiologist at least ten times. Today, she fixed them by changing the doors on both aids, this has happened before. I have had to send them away and wait for over a week for their return. I live 40 miles away from my audiologist. I cannot hear without the aids. When I sent them away last Fall, the said they completely rebuilt them and gave me an extended warranty. NOT GOOD ENOUGH! At this rate I'll need a lifetime warranty.

This is my second pair of Widex hearing aids. The first pair was purchased in November of 2015. Both broke down continuously. They were polite and told me they needed service. My local hearing aid office was helpful in providing a loaner and sent my broken hearing aid in so many times I lost count. I purchased a new pair in July of 2019. It is now 6 days into Jan of 2020. Currently the right one is just dead. No sound. I’ve done everything I can to clean and replace microphone and battery but to no avail. Once again I must make an appointment and send this 6 month old expensive hearing aid in for repair. My lesson is that this product has a very poor maintenance record and creates frequent interruptions with needing service. Just disappointed with the poor track record of constant need for service yet the sound is so real like. What to do!
Hi Vicki, thank you for reaching out and we're sorry for any inconvenience. Could you please send us a private message with your clinic's name and serial numbers so we can look into this? Thanks.

I purchased top of the line rechargeable hearing aids in August 2019. Soon the left hearing aid and the charger failed. I had to return to the audiologist who sent them back to the company. After doing without for a few weeks, I returned to the audiologist a few days ago. The hearing aid now works but the repaired or replaced charger does not. As a cancer patient I find it very difficult to keep going back to the audiologist and then doing without the complete system. Online customer service was of no help.
Hi Fred, thank you for sharing your experience and sorry for the inconvenience with your charger. If you can send us a private message with your clinic's name we can contact them to see about shipping a new charger at no cost either to their office or directly to your home, if you prefer. Thank you
With the help of the Widex representative and an extension on my warranty we were able to come to a resolution. I also learned the majority of my problem was not with Widex but really with zpower. Since Widex sold me the zpower charging system unfortunately it became their responsibility. I have gained back confidence in the Widex product.
I purchased my Beyond 440 with rechargeable batteries and charger about two years ago. Every few months the batteries die, probably has happened five or six times. First I was told it was the charger, which they reprogrammed, did not help. Then they sent the hearing aid and charger back to Widex and it worked for a month or two. The last time they gave me a custom Widex dryer/ charger box. It worked for about two months and one battery just died. Now they are telling me it’s the humidity in Florida, yet there are millions of people in Florida that have hearing aids without this problem. I also feel the streaming of music is inconsistent. The audiologists, at my doctor’s office who sold me the hearing aid has gone out of her way to try and find a solution. I have one more year on the warranty. I feel that Widex should at least extend the warranty.
Thank you for reaching out and we’re sorry you are experiencing issues. Could you please send a private message with your serial number and clinic name? Thank you.
Bluetooth connection was intermittent to none on the first set. On this second set, the right hearing aid depleted a new battery on a daily basis then quit in entirety. If I'm lucky, on a new battery, I can adjust the sound on the left hearing aid. Absolutely no volume in the right aid. Most frustrating on such an expensive investment!
Thank you for reaching out and we’re sorry for any frustration and inconvenience. Could you please send a private message with your serial number and clinic name so we can investigate? Thank you.
Comdex will not stream music through bluetooth in stereo. It’s like listening to your music through a an AM radio. Called Widex and they said they'd forward my concern to research and development department. I can buy bluetooth speaker at a discount store that stream music in stereo for less than $20. C'mon Widex. This is 80's technology. Get with the program and update your equipment.
Thank you for reaching out. We’re sorry that you are experiencing sound quality issues during streaming with the COM-DEX accessory. Could you please send us a private message with your hearing aid serial number and clinic name? We will use the serial number to evaluate if that is the right accessory for your hearing aid and possibility provide a free accessory upgrade or replacement. Thank you.
Purchased these to help with Hearing. They have not worked right since the day I got them. They have been turned in to Widex And they are audiologist multiple times. The last time I receive them back in the Hearing Aid piece does not even amplify, I can hear better without it then with it on. Widex Has a three-year warranty, but they have yet to do anything. I am told they replaced the entire inside parts of both the Hearing Aid and the receiver and they still don’t work.
Hi Jim, thank you for sharing your experience and we're sorry to hear of the inconvenience. Though we are definitely confident we can rectify your situation to ensure you get the optimal benefit from your Widex hearing aid purchase. Can you please private message us with your serial numbers and clinic name as to work with them on an expedited solution? Thank you
