About Widex

Widex was created in 1956 in Lynge, Denmark, with a vision to help anyone who has a hard time hearing stay connected to the world. They are part of WSAudiology, and they have helped improve the lives of millions of people.

According to Widex, one in three hearing aids worn by people worldwide has been manufactured by them; they own retail shops globally. So you can find them anywhere in Europe, North America, and Asia. 

They are pioneers in the industry; over the years they have: 

  • Received the ID PRIZE Design in 1985 after designing the world's first in-the-ear hearing aid with the same quality as a behind-the-ear hearing aid. 
  • Introduced the world's first fully digital in-the-ear hearing aid in 1995.
  • Designed and produced the world's smallest receiver-in-canal hearing in 2008.
  • In 2010, they created a hearing aid specifically for babies. 
  • Recently, Widex applied the first real-time machine-learning AI technology to hearing aids.

They are currently in over 100 countries, offering different designs and styles and constantly working on improving their products.

How Widex Works

1. Take the online hearing test

The Widex online hearing test will help you determine if you need to consult a professional. The test requires you to answer a few general questions and check your ability to hear high and low-frequency sounds in different environments. The whole process is offered for free and takes about five minutes. 

A quick tip: The test requires you to have headphones on to provide you with the best results. 

 2. Find a local Widex professional near you

Widex does not sell its products online; you'll need to physically go to a professional that works with Widex to receive your hearing aid. 

On their website, click on "Store locator," they have stores from five continents across 28 countries. 


When you choose your country, you can type up your current location, and they'll show you the nearest shop. Then, make an appointment at the closest location to your convenience; once you get there, a professional will test the severity of your hearing loss and recommend a device that fits your degree of hearing loss, environment, needs, lifestyle, and budget. 

You can also fill out an online form on the Widex website, and a local Widex professional will reach out to you; then, you will get help with selecting, fitting, and maintaining your device. 

3. Check out your new device

Widex hearing aids are meant to reconnect you to the world; if it is not helping the way you need it to, or you are having issues with your device, the company offers a no-obligation free trial where you can return them during a set timeframe.

Widex Costs

Widex does not advertise the cost of its hearing aids on its website; to get the exact cost, you'll have to visit a local professional that directly sells Widex hearing aids. 

The prices depend on the model, technology level, features, severity of hearing loss, batteries, and whether it is for both ears. In general, the base prices are:

  • UNIQUE: Ranges between $1,200 - $1,500.
  • EVOKE: $1,300 - $1,800.
  • BEYOND $1,400 - $1,800.


If you buy your device from an authorized retailer, you'll get a warranty. However, it is important to note that your warranty is not valid if you buy the hearing aid from an online retailer. 

They offer different timeframes depending on the model you purchase. However, most of their products are covered from two to three years. You can also get an extended warranty for an additional year or two with a fee.

Their warranties cover loss, damage, repairs, batteries, and chargers. Unfortunately, it does not cover accessories and earmold. If you lose the hearing aid, you can pay a small fee, and you'll get a replacement, but you will need to pay for shipping and handling.

When you first get the device, you can talk to the authorized dealer to learn more about their warranties.
