The Widex Dream range has now been superseded by the Widex Unique. The information below is for historic reference, we advise you not to buy this aid.
Update - We have had to downgrade its technology rating as it no longer stands up as well as it once did when compared to more modern aids.
The Widex Dream range of hearing aids was launched in February 2013. It is available in four levels of technology, the Dream 440, 330, 220, and 110, with the 220 being the third level of technology. This range contains their new True ISP chip technology which offers even better sound quality and faster signal processing. The Widex Dream 220 offers a choice of six hearing aid styles which are available in a range of colours.
CIC - (Completely In Canal)
ITE - (In The Ear)
RIC - (Receiver In Canal)
RITE - (Receiver In The Ear)
BTE - (Behind The Ear)
Micro BTE - (Behind The Ear)
The Widex Dream 220 also comes with a range of features, including some new ones that are not available in any other Widex hearing aid range.
5 Channels – Sound processing channels allow your hearing aid to be programmed for your hearing loss so the more you have, the more specifically this can be done.
3 Programmes – These allow your hearing aid to be set to manage your hearing loss in different environments or situations.
Personal Acclimatisation – This allows you to control both the level and pace of your hearing aids acclimatisation.
Personal Audibility Extender – This is designed to help with higher frequency sounds.
Feedback Cancelling - Helps to minimise any irritating whistling noises that may sometimes occur
Noise Reduction - Helps to eliminate any unwanted background noise.
The Widex Dream 220 is also compatible with the DEX range of wireless accessories giving you more freedom to enjoy everyday activities.
RC-DEX - Remote Control
TV – DEX – Wireless TV Streamer
Phone – DEX – Landline Accessory
M – DEX - Mobile Phone Accessory
In conclusion, the Dream 220 is the second level of technology in this new range from Widex. It offers wireless compatibility but lacks many of the features available on the more advanced models in this range. It has faster sound processing thanks to the new True ISP technology and offers a choice of styles and colours to suit your individual needs. If you are interested in this type of hearing aid but would like to take full advantage of the new technology available then you may want to try the Widex Dream 440 or the Widex Dream 330 which have more features and more sound processing channels. Or the entry level model which is the Widex Dream 110 Model.
