Question

What are the benefits of fitting WIDEX MOMENT™ hearing aids with COMPASS™ GPS?

Answer

With COMPASS™ GPS fitting software and its accompanying TruAcoustics™ feature, it has never been easier to fit WIDEX MOMENT to your patients’ exact needs. We have updated our COMPASS GPS fitting software with more granularity, control and transparency while keeping the experience simple and intuitive.

With a complete redesign of the user interface and a more intuitive workflow, our new three-step navigator and updated visualizations ensure that you always know where you are in the fitting process, and that the effects of your choices and recommendations are clear at every stage. We have also reduced the number of clicks required to produce the most precise fitting possible for your patients.

The TruAcoustics™ feature of the COMPASS™ GPS provides a higher level of customization and fitting accuracy for all your patients with automated in-situ acoustic optimization technology. It helps you to make the right choices for your patients, guaranteeing that they have a precise and fully personalized hearing aid experience, so they can enjoy the best sound possible.

All these updates and improvements were designed to give you a seamless fitting process with WIDEX MOMENT™ hearing aids and to ensure your patients experience the best sound in all environments - which is why we strongly recommend utilizing COMPASS™ GPS with TruAcoustics™.
