To some hearing aid wearers, their devices can sound tinny and artificial, which can make it difficult for many to adapt to their new hearing aids. This artificial sound experience happens when sound processed in the hearing aid reach the eardrum a split second later than the natural sound waves that travel directly through or around the hearing aid tip. According to Widex, the Moment platform achieves this with two distinct signal pathways, both built on the natural sound of Widex signal processing, but significantly different in processing speed and sound design. This new "ZeroDelay" experience dramatically improves the sound quality for Moment hearing aid wearers.
Oticon More, with Oticon's new BrainHearing technology, takes hearing aid sound quality to a new level with its inclusion of a Deep Neural Network embedded on the chip.
