|As promised at the launch of this product, Widex Evoke continues to improve on being “intelligent today, smarter tomorrow,” the hearing aid manufacturer announced.
Thanks to the “extensive” amount of user input collected, the 2nd generation of SoundSense Learn can find a user’s optimal setting 25% faster than before, according to Widex. While doing so, it now shows users, in real-time, how quickly they are achieving their best personal sound experience, says Widex. This new patent-pending interface is also designed to enhance the SoundSense Learn II experience while “engaging and encouraging the user.”
“Less than a year after launching Widex Evoke, our focus on delivering innovation to Widex Evoke users is showing great results,” said CEO Jørgen Jensen. “Today, 94% of users already prefer the Widex Evoke sound in challenging environments—and now we’re making sure SoundSense Learn users can get to their personalized sound experience even faster and more efficiently. And it’s all thanks to the SoundSense Learn users around the world.”
Widex Evoke was reportedly “the first hearing aid to use machine learning to deliver a truly personalized sound,” in the moment, by letting users choose their listening intention and create their own personal listening preference via SoundSense Learn. SoundSense Learn takes this anonymized input from every user, collects it in the cloud, and then Widex experts analyze it to create a better experience for all users.
With data being collected from around the world, Widex will continue the quest for a “smarter tomorrow” where the AI-driven SoundSense Learn will help not only users, but also hearing care professionals converge towards what Widex says is “personalized, perfected hearing.”
In the March issue of Hearing Review, the results of a multinational survey of hearing aid users showed high satisfaction rates for the Evoke, particularly in noisy situations.
