Share:

Delivering on the WIDEX EVOKE promise for a smarter tomorrow, WIDEX will release its second generation of the real-time machine learning feature, SoundSense Learn. Users will now be able to optimize their personalized sound preferences 25% faster than ever before.

 HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--()-- As promised at the launch of this product, WIDEX EVOKE continues to improve on being “intelligent today, smarter tomorrow”.

Thanks to the extensive amount of user input collected, the 2nd generation of SoundSense Learn can find the user’s optimal setting 25% faster than before. While doing so, it now shows users, in real-time, how quickly they are achieving their best personal sound experience. This new patent-pending interface is also designed to enhance the 2nd Generation SoundSense Learn experience while engaging and encouraging the user.

“Less than a year after launching WIDEX EVOKE, our focus on delivering innovation to WIDEX EVOKE users is showing great results. Today, 94% of users already prefer the WIDEX EVOKE sound in challenging environments – and now we’re making sure SoundSense Learn users can get to their personalized sound experience even faster and more efficiently. And it’s all thanks to the SoundSense Learn users around the world,” says CEO Jørgen Jensen.

WIDEX EVOKE was the first hearing aid to use machine learning to deliver a truly personalized sound, in the moment, by letting users choose their listening intention and create their own personal listening preference via SoundSense Learn. SoundSense Learn takes this anonymized input from every user, collects it in the cloud, and then Widex experts analyze it to create a better experience for all users.

With data being collected from around the world, Widex will continue the quest for a “smarter tomorrow” where the AI-driven SoundSense Learn will help not only users, but also hearing care professionals converge towards personalized perfected hearing.
