- Unique feature ‘add-on’ facility
- Budget segment
- Mini-BTE style available
- Widex ‘Flex’ processing platform
The Widex Menu can be referred to as the Menu3, the Menu5 or Menu10 product lines. This is because the flexible fitting platform (known as Flex) allows the hearing aid fitter to customise the basic compression as well as other sound processing features. The compression for example can be 3, 5 or 10 channel. Widex Menu wearers can choose from a large range of add-on features.
Some of these include: being able to extend the number of programmes available or choosing to add the ‘Audibility Extender’ feature – particularly useful if the wearer has a very steeply sloping high frequency hearing loss, or has hearing loss in the severe-profound category. Widex Zen is also something which can be added to the Menu devices.
The range of product styles available is similar to that of the Widex Real, but the Menu now offers the option of the Widex IIC – or invisible-in-canal style. Widex market this as an even better cosmetic option than the industry standard ‘completely-in-canal’ or CIC style. The IIC is designed to sit deeper in the ear canal, with physical shell modifications to ensure reliable long-term operation.
