Widex is one of the world's leading companies within digital hearing aid technology. Today, our hearing aids are sold in more than 90 markets around the world, with 97% of our output exported from Denmark. With a world market share of approximately 10%, we are the world's sixth largest manufacturer of hearing aids.
Focusing on the individual
Our hearing aids help people with hearing loss to communicate better - something which is of immense importance to their quality of life. We also place great emphasis on the area of children and young people with hearing loss, as early intervention is important for their language development.
Innovation is our driving force
Widex is based on know-how, as represented by our innovative staff and five decades of intensive technological research and development. We develop digital technology at a level of quality that few can match, and which has made us one of the most innovative manufacturers in the industry.
In 1995 Widex became world-famous when it introduced the world's first digital in-the-ear hearing aid, and the pace of progress has been swift since then. With our latest products, Widex is setting entirely new standards and charting new possibilities within hearing aid technology - all with the aim of improving the quality of life of people with hearing loss.
Background Widex was founded in 1956 by the Topholm and Westermann families, who still own and run the company. Widex now employs around 2,400 staff around the world, of whom 900 work in Denmark. Our head office is located in Værlose, Denmark, which is where our research, development and administration is based, as well as most of our production. Widex also has large assembly departments in Helsinge in North Sealand and in Verviers, Belgium.
Widex have always been at the forefront of development of hearing aid technology. They were the first company to deliver a fully digital in the ear aid to the market in 1995. They also won the European Inventor award in 2012 for their CAMISHA technology (Computer Aided Manufacturing of Individual Shells for Hearing Aids) which is now used by every hearing aid manufacturer. This involves using 3D laser modeling to create an accurate model of a person’s ear to ensure a perfect fitting. While they are by no means the biggest hearing aid manufacturer, they are among the very best. Widex very much follow their own path, they are not necessarily swayed by what other manufacturers do. For instance, they are focused right now on introducing a completely new way to power hearing aids using fuel cell technology. If Widex can introduce this type of technology it will change hearing aids forever, no more batteries full stop. Simply fill up your hearing aids with a squirt of fluid for a couple of seconds and then use them for days.
