The Latest Mid Range Hearing Aids From Widex

Unique 330

Hearing Aids Dublin, Widex Unique 330The Widex Unique 330 is the upper mid range hearing aid family in the new "Unique" range from Widex. Widex have delivered a very strong range at this price point as they always do, they have retained some of the better features from the more expensive 440.

We tend to provide Widex to many of our customers because they are really fantastic hearing aids and we have been using the Unique since its launch last year. We have found it to be an outstanding hearing aid across all levels of technology. A couple of our customers who were wearing the Widex Dream range decided they wanted to try the Unique. 

Great For The Outdoors

Their feedback is that the Unique is even better than the Dream range,(which really takes some beating), especially in outdoor situations. This is of course because of the new wind reduction feature available in the Unique but only in the 440 unfortunately. So let's take a deeper look at the 330 level, the models, the features and what you can expect. 

Model types

The model types are the same across all of the technology levels, the 330 has the full sized traditional BTE, the Fashion. The middle sized RIC the Fusion and the rather tiny and discreet Passion. In the ear models range from the full sized ITE down to the tiny micro CIC.small and discreet hearing aids

Sound Processing

As is normal with Widex, the Unique 330 is a 10 channel aid utilising Widex's U-platform chip that the whole Unique range are built on. The 330 uses the new Sound Class Technology  feature but the aids are restricted to five possible environmental types, again, the aim is to always maximise speech sounds when they are present and comfort when they are not. In the 330 the feature is inter ear which allows the hearing aids to make decisions as a pair.

InterEar (IE) technology

IE technology allows both hearing aids to act as one system through the instantaneous wireless exchange of information. Widex uses this technology in order that the hearing aids can act as a synchronised pair. The IE technology ensures the synchronization of the noise reduction feature, the sound class technology, the volume adjustments and program changes between the two aids.

Inter ear Speech Enhancer

This feature is always worth mentioning, the speech enhancer is an amazing noise reduction feature from Widex. Most noise reduction features actually just deliver comfort in noise. This one delivers both comfort and clarity, the inter ear feature gives it an even better edge. Both hearing aids communicate and decide as a pair how to apply the feature, this makes it smarter and better. 

Sound Class Technology

The aids can automatically detect and adapt in 5 different listening environments and focus on the most dominant speech signal detected in the environment. The feature is inter ear in the 330.


This feature is actually only available on a stand alone phone program, the signal from the hearing aid you are using close to the phone is streamed to both hearing aids to help you hear better.

Background noise reduction

The noise reduction in the Unique 330 is excellent and is suitable for all but the noisiest environments. However if you are really active with lots of exposure to quite noisy environments then you might want to think about the Unique 440.

Wider dynamic range of hearing

The 330 also has access to that wider dynamic range of hearing, they have also included the soft sound noise reduction so that you won't get annoyed by hearing the fridge buzzing away in the background.

Zen Tinnitus management

As with the previous two ranges of Widex hearing aids, the Zen tinnitus management features are available in the 330.
