WIDEX CROS helps people with one-sided hearing loss, or single-sided deafness (SSD).
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.
With one-sided hearing loss, 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.
For your better ear, you can choose from a range of models from our popular DREAM family. Your hearing care professional will take the degree of your hearing loss into account and help you find the model that suits you best. The combination of WIDEX CROS and the EVOKE 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.
Due to our advanced battery saving technology, we use three times less power than other wireless CROS solutions.
