Why sharing your hearing aid settings will help you get better hearing care

A new approach to hearing care gives you both better support and hearing care that’s tailored to your specific hearing needs. It helps you share the sound improvements you make on your phone directly with your hearing care professional. All you have to do is give your consent once.
This program is called Real-Life Insights. It gives your Hearing Healthcare Professional access to information about how, when, and why you create and use personal programs on your hearing aids. This insight helps your Hearing Healthcare Professional give you the most personalized and effective care.

How does it work?

If you have a hearing aid that lets you personalize your hearing in the moment through an app on your phone, you're in luck. These personal adjustments make all the difference in how well you hear. And they’re available in Widex EVOKE hearing aids with 2.4 GHz compatibility.

With Real-Life Insights and the personalization available in the EVOKE app, you can automatically share information about every sound adjustment you make to improve your hearing with your Hearing Healthcare Professional.

Your Real-Life Insights data is securely shared between the app on your phone and your Hearing Healthcare Professional's fitting software using the Widex Cloud. You can easily give or decline consent to sharing your data, and you’re free to change your mind at any time.

Then, the next time you're in the clinic, they can give you more tailored counselling, and even fine tune your hearing aid settings, based on the changes they can see you've made to your sound in your daily life, because the person you trust the most with your hearing has now learned even more about how you'd like to hear when you're out in the real world. After all, the goal is to improve your hearing in the situations that matter most to you, not in the ideal hearing conditions of an audiology examination room.
