Benefits From SoundSense Learn/MySound
HOW DOES SOUNDSENSE LEARN/MySound WORK?
When you use SoundSense Learn/MySound with your Widex MOMENT Sheer or Evoke hearing aids, you first input your environment and hearing intention. Drawing on data from the Widex Cloud, a machine learning algorithm generates two combinations of hearing aid settings that may improve your ability to hear.
You choose the one that sounds better to you and indicate how much you prefer it. The process repeats itself up to 12 times, but you can stop at any point once you’re satisfied with how you’re hearing.
How SoundSense Learn/MySound makes listening easier (so you can forget about your hearing aid)
Today’s hearing aids come with automation to help you forget about the hearing aid and focus on listening. But what if the listening experience doesn’t match how you want to hear?
Your HearSource hearing care professional has done a great job in programming your Widex hearing aids. You’ve got automatic sound environment detection turned on, and you’re all set to go out into the world and listen to your heart’s content, Yet at some point, you may experience a listening situation where the sound is not quite how you would like it.
