Hearing Aids & Windy Days, No Problem!

Hearing aids and windy daysWear Your Hearing Aids on a Windy Day

It is a complaint that we hear often, people saying that they just can't wear their hearing aids in windy conditions. In the past, a windy day meant a day without hearing aids for many people. However, new Widex technology means that wind doesn’t have to be a big issue for hearing aid users. It’s all thanks to the new Widex Wind Noise Manager feature in the Widex Unique hearing aids. 

Reducing Wind Noise: How Do They do it

According to the Marketrak survey, a massive survey of hearing aid users undertaken in the US, wind noise is listed as the “second worst listening situation” for hearing aid users. Wind noise is in fact the turbulence created by wind moving past the hearing aid’s microphone. It can make it very difficult to hear the sound that you want to hear and it can be downright annoying even if there is no speech. To solve this problem, Widex created a weather cover which sits over the microphones of their behind-the-ear hearing aids which reduced wind noise quite a lot. However, they didn't think it was enough, so with UNIQUE, Widex’ newest hearing aids, wind protection is taken to the next level. 

The Wind Noise Manager

It’s all thanks to the Wind Noise Manager, one of the latest features in the Widex Unique range. With this system in place, the hearing aids can automatically detect wind noise – and react immediately. The new Wind Noise Manager gives hearing aid users:

  • Improved speech understanding
  • The ability to keep hearing aids on when it is windy outside
  • Quick and automatic adaptation in all types of weather


So whether you’re caught out in a storm, playing a round of golf or simply enjoying the ocean’s breeze, the Widex Wind Noise Manager will allow you to keep hearing all the important sounds around you. So if you are interested in Widex hearing aids in Dublin or across Ireland, why don't you give us a call.
