- Basic segment
- Widex ISP technology in 3 channels
- Widex Locator
- MiniBTE available
The Real product line was introduced with ISP (Integrated Signal Processing), meaning that the Widex benchmark signal processing was now available across the whole range of Widex hearing aids, from the top to bottom pricing segments. The compression system is the same as that used within the Passion models, (Enhanced Dynamic Range Compression) but in 3 channels only.
In the REAL products with two microphones, the directionality algorithm is controlled by the Widex Locator system. Besides the directional focus that it offers, the Locator can also help deal with wind noise, a known challenge for users of directional microphone systems. The Locator automatically changes to omni directional sensitivity when wind noise is identified and reduces the wind noise level accordingly.
Important for users on strict budgets, the EcoTech II feature optimises battery power usage. It helps to ensure that the processing functions in the hearing aids are only drawing battery power when in active use.
Behind-the-ear options include both a micro and mini BTE. The micro-BTE model (REAL RE-9m) is the smallest option, with a size 10 battery. The mini-BTE (REAL RE-9) is slightly bigger with a bigger 312 battery, and a telecoil. There is also a power BTE to cover more severe losses.
