How do you connect your Widex hearing aid to your smartphone?
Connectivity is a priority
Hearing aid technology has come a long way in the past few years. We now have special telephones for hearing impaired people which can connect directly to your hearing aids. Cell phones for hearing impaired have also become smarter, with new technology allowing you to listen to music or talk on the phone without even taking it out of your pocket.

At Widex, we believe that your hearing aids should work with all the technology you need in life. That’s why connectivity is a top priority for us. We are always working hard to design new hearing aids and assistive listening devices that will meet the demands of tomorrow’s technology.

Here are the answers to a few questions you may have about compatibility and your Widex hearing aids.
Are Widex hearing aids compatible with mobile devices like phones and tablets?
Yes. Widex hearing aids are able to connect with most phones, tablets, and mobile devices via assistive listening devices. Assistive listening devices allow your hearing aids to communicate with other electronic devices like your cell phone, TV, landline phone, or radio.

Are Widex hearing aids compatible with most mobile phones?
Yes. Current models of Widex hearing aids connect with most mobile phones via UNI-DEX, a neck-worn assistive listening device. UNI-DEX’ built-in microphone allows you to talk hands-free and listen to your music on your phone or tablet. UNI-DEX works with almost all phones.

Are Widex hearing aids compatible with iPhones?
Yes. Widex hearing aids can connect with your iPhone via a UNI-DEX, or the very descreet CALL-DEX which connects to almost any mobile phone through the mini-jack plug. The UNI-DEX allows you to talk and listen to music hands-free on your iPhone and most other mobile phones. Widex hearing aids are not, however, made for iPhone hearing aids.

Are there Widex hearing aids with Bluetooth?
Many companies offer Bluetooth for hearing aids. We offer something better. Widex hearing aids use Widexlink, a wireless technology that streams better than Bluetooth. Unlike Bluetooth, the most common form of wireless technology, WidexLink is designed specifically for the demands of hearing aids. It uses less power, is extremely fast and ensures there are no delays or drop-out of sound.
