As a nature lover, Ed appreciates how WIDEX EVOKE is both a hearing aid he can easily control himself and a smart device that automatically adjusts as needed – whether he’s off the grid or in town. Hear what he’s got to say:
Apparently not, since I’ve always been careful not to turn up the volume too high, and you wouldn’t catch me dead at a rock concert. Not even when I was younger.
I’ve always been more into nature than technology. So since I have to use a hearing aid, I’m glad this one is intelligent.
EVOKE is pretty damn impressive, as far as I'm concerned. The sound isn’t even tinny, which I’d always associated with hearing aids. It sounds natural.
That’s important to me, since I love spending time outdoors. Whenever I get the chance to get away for a few days, I take off.
And since I’m used to being the one who calls the shots, I expect to be able to control how well I hear, too. It just can’t be too much of a pain to use, which this one isn’t.
I like how it gives me different options when I ask it to, and then I just choose whatever sounds best. And if I don’t feel like messing with it at all, all that built-in stuff means it keeps up with my needs anyway.
