By way of appears to be like, the Widex Evoke has the identical kind issue that Widex has had for some time. This evaluate is of the Widex Evoke Fusion 2 which is the Bluetooth model of the Evoke. They match like a normal receiver-in-canal listening to support, very slim behind the ear, and really snug. The evoke additionally comes within the smaller Ardour mannequin, the Fusion with out bluetooth, the Fusion 2 which additionally features a rechargeable mannequin, a Trend Mini BTE, Trend conventional BTE, and a Energy Model of the Evoke.

The Evoke is finest recognized for being the primary listening to support to make the most of Machine Studying Know-how. Nonetheless, lets check out another options that I like concerning the Evoke.

1. Telecoil – Widex did not sacrifice the telecoil to make use of Bluetooth. A telecoil can faucet into an induction loop in a public venue like a theater, convention middle, or a church. I also can stream audio immediately from a telecoil enabled phone.

2. The 113 dB SPL Linear Enter Vary – Having a excessive enter vary is vital for listening to effectively in a loud surroundings and for higher music appreciation. The upper the enter vary, the higher. It prevents the incoming sign from needing to be compressed. Mix the excessive enter vary with 4 Analog to Digital converters and you’ve got a listening to support that may higher protect the integrity of sound, permitting for a cleaner listening surroundings in almost each scenario.

3. The Sound Classifier – I really like when a listening to support can routinely decide which program settings are finest. Because of this the listening to aids are consistently surveying the surroundings to find out which settings are finest so you do not have to. The Premium 440 stage Evoke has 11 sound classifiers which helps to make sure you are at all times within the precise proper settings for the surroundings.

4. The Zen Tinnitus Program – Widex is the one firm who makes use of Fractal tones to masks tinnitus and scale back your annoyance stage. The most well-liked Zen tone is “Aqua”. You should use these Zen packages by themselves or together with one other program.

5. Machine Studying – The Widex Evoke listening to aids have the flexibility to make the most of Machine studying to assist the listening to aids perceive how you want to listen to sound. Through the use of SoundSense Study and SoundSense Adapt, you train the app which settings you favor in every surroundings. You do that by selecting between an A & B possibility whereas listening to your present surroundings. You do that till you get the settings precisely proper. The changes that you just make enable the Evoke to be taught your preferences, and permit for higher updates sooner or later.

These listening to aids are actually revolutionary, however there are some issues concerning the EVOKE that I’m not an enormous fan of.

1. Rechargeability – The Evoke listening to aids use ZPower Silver-Zinc rechargeable know-how. I presently desire lithium batteries for his or her reliability.

2. Solely 15 adjustment handles – When programming listening to aids, the extra adjustment handles the higher. This permits me to program the listening to aids extra exactly to a prescription. In a premium stage system, I desire to see 20 adjustment handles.

3. Connectivity – Whereas the connectivity is nice with an Apple system, you’ll be able to’t stream immediately from an Android system. You should use the App and its options with Android, however if you wish to stream audio, you’ll need a streaming system.

Contemplating what these listening to aids are able to, the potential negatives appear comparatively minor. Nonetheless, as with every listening to support, you’ll solely expertise the total capabilities of the Evoke listening to aids if in case you have been match and programmed accurately. This consists of Actual Ear Measurement. If you do not know what Actual Ear Measurement is, I extremely suggest you watch my video: https://youtu.be/cHR0Oa6I-wY

The Widex Evoke Listening to support is actually a formidable system that’s considered one of a form. So, in case you are on the lookout for a listening to support that permits you to make particular customizations on the fly, with the flexibility to turn out to be smarter over time, chances are you’ll need to think about the Evoke on your subsequent set of gadgets.

  1. Здравствуйте, я из России у меня evoke 110, вопрос можно ли использовать через андроид как гарнитуру, отвечать на звонки, слушать музуку. И в программе у вас 3 иконки символа снизу, у меня 2. Музыкальной нет. Есть универсальная, ту что настроил доктор. И четырёх направленная чтоб прибавлять и убавлять. Можно ссылки о возможностях в плане it технологий данного аппарата программные обеспечения. Спасибо, заранее

  2. As a hearing aid wearer for over 25 years diagnosed with Meniere's Disease, I would be particularly interested in hearing what Dr. Cliff has to say about the peculiar challenges Meniere's presents for hearing aid development and use. These include the almost day-to-day variability of hearing loss coupled with Tinnitus and speech discrimination. Widex has been the only company that I have been able to locate that actually did research into this using their applications. I wonder if their latest products reflect that research (I currently use Starky Livio products (my third set / brand of hearing aids) which could steer me towards them as my next set of hearing aids.

  3. Saludos desde México sería tan amable en decirme cual es el modelo exacto de aparato auditivo más potente actualmente para perdida profunda ya que padezco perdida profunda de ambos oidos y ya busque en varias marcas y ninguno da cobertura a mi perdida ya que solo oigo más fuerte pero no entiendo las palabras . Quiero saber cual es lo mejor de ustedes a ver si con ese si logro escuchar bien y entender mi pérdida va así : del lado izquierdo en la audiometría que dice db empieza en el 20 y luego hacia la derecha va bajando hasta llegar el número 120 creo dice Htz

  4. I have these aids and I have so many issues!!! I only hear the Bluetooth on my left ear, the sound never goes to my right. I hear feedback whenever I put my hand through hair. Also they disappear from the accessible portion of my iPhone.

  5. Dr. Olson-
    Albeit auto environment classification is certainly an expression of an artificial intelligence function, I have to digress that this is the first hearing aid to present such functions. Starkey's Livio AI was released before the Evoke and has this and other AI applications. Isn't that right?
    Huge fan here. Merry xmas!

  6. Hello, I am currently translating this text. Sorry for the translation, first of all, I have a Widex Mind 440 of the year 2010 in which it includes Zen. The telecoil is not a novelty since my headphones have it. I have a loss of 135 dB and I must change the truth that I have already asked for it. The exact model is Widex Evoke BTE 13 D with mobile connection. The audiologist has told me that it allows me to talk and listen to streaming only with iPhones. With Android it is not compatible, have you tried using that system with an iPhone? If so, how is it going? I look forward to next week.

  7. Would be good if you did a video on CIC's v RICS. I am too vain to wear the RICS but I know they are better for maintenance and sound. I have a pair of Widex Evoke to trial and have an android phone and find they do pair ok but sometimes do not connect so well. THey have a lot of wind noise too. The learning app does not work very well either and is more of a gadget.

  8. Hello Dr. Cliff, I'm in 5 day free trial of the Evoke 440 and I can't get good quality sound, it sounds like robotic voices. Do you think that might change over time? (I had SSHL on my right ear and that left me with audio distortion as well, besides tinnitus). Also, I can't find all the 11 programs that are mentiones in this video, do I have to do something? thank you for your help.

  9. Hello Dr Cliff: Thank you for your response to my questions on your other videos. I've been exploring getting an Evoke Hearing Aid. But I just found out that if you need a Widex BICROS for one ear (left ear in my case) then you can only use their ONE program (which they call the Universal Program) because turning on the BICROS immediately reverts the program back to Universal. So, all the technological advances (including machine learning) with Widex are unavailable to me if I use a BICROS. So, I was pondering another alternative and I would very much appreciate your opinion. What if I only bought ONE of the latest advanced version of Widex Evoke Fusion2 for my right ear (in which I do have some hearing loss)? And, instead of placing a BICROS in my left (bad) ear, I place nothing, and instead get a Widex microphone that connects wirelessly to my Evoke hearing aid. Then, I presumably get all the machine learning capability AND be able to adjust the program to each situation AND be able to hear people on my left (through the microphone). I realize that this would be a little bit inconvenient because I have to carry around a microphone. But I'm willing to do that. What do you think of such a setup?

  10. You mention that you can either make adjustments yourself through the app or it will make them for you via the machine learning capability. I have yet to notice it making adjustments itself, so am I doing something wrong?

  11. I'm trialing this hearing aid. I find it will communicate directly with my Nokia Android phone without a linking device (such as Com-Dex or a Phonak MyLink) and I can make the adjustments you are talking about. My major concern about it at the moment is that it doesn't have volume controls – you have to change the volume with the phone app, meaning you need to have your phone handy.

  12. Hi! what do you think/what did you experience about sound quality comparing the Widex Evoke Fusion 2 and the Phonak Marvel? I'll try to get both for a trial period but I'd be eager to hear your opinion, (or maybe a comparison video 😉 ) because the android compatibility and some other features and reviews make me go with Phonak, but on the other hand some reviewers say that the sound quality of the Evoke is better in many situations, mainly in big background noise. I've mild hearing loss, I'm listening to music a lot during work, so the streaming audio quality of music and the general quality when speaking with others in less noisy environment is the most important for me. Thanks in advance for your help!
