If you are deaf in one ear and have normal hearing in the other, then WIDEX CROS is for you. The solution can also be used if you are deaf in one ear and hearing impaired in the other. This is known as a BiCROS solution.
Superb sound quality, and no echoes or distortion – this makes WIDEX CROS particularly good for hearing speech. By wirelessly transmitting sound from the deaf ear to the better ear, CROS reduces the head shadow effect, thereby diminishing the detrimental effects. And it looks good too.
You wear WIDEX CROS on your deaf ear like an ordinary Behind-the-ear hearing aid. It picks up sound from your surroundings and transmits it over to a hearing aid on your other ear. You can choose from a range of models in the DREAM hearing aid family.
- Hear All Sounds - Without two working ears, your brain has difficulty working out the precise origin of sounds. This means that it can be difficult to locate sounds. Imagine having to cross a busy street uncertain about which direction traffic is coming from. Because it picks up sounds on your deaf side, WIDEX CROS helps you hear all the sounds around you. That means that you can hear sounds from your deaf side without turning your head.
- Improved Listening - Listening to and participating in conversations is also made a lot easier with WIDEX CROS. If you are talking to friends in a restaurant or at a party for instance, you can enjoy, follow and participate in the conversation - regardless of on which side of you the speaker is located.
- Designed to your specific needs - For your better ear, you can choose from a range of models from our popular DREAM family. The combination of WIDEX CROS and the absolute latest in hearing aid technology gives you superb sound quality. And with Widex' wireless technology you will not experience any echoes or distortion when WIDEX CROS is active.
- Outstanding battery life - Due to Widex advanced battery saving technology we use three times less power than other wireless CROS solutions.
