- Pair the TV PLAY with the Widex Sheer, Moment, or Evoke hearing aids.
- Place the TV PLAY discreetly in front of or behind the TV.
The TV Play, a TV to Widex hearing aids streamer, utilizes a new method of wireless transmission to provide clear and full, echo-free, stereo sound from an audio source. The direct transmission of the audio signal from the TV-Play to the hearing aid has the potential to eliminate the negative influence of ambient noise in the environment resulting in a better Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) than what may be achieved by an individual without hearing aids or with their hearing aids alone.
The TV Play will improve speech intelligibility in challenging listening situations and most users prefer the sound quality of the audio signals using hearing aids with the TV Play over hearing aids alone or unaided.
Question and Answers about TV PLAY
- Can I control the room noise separately from the TV?

I recently purchased the Widex TV Play Bluetooth Streamer and I’m delighted with how easy it was to install. The sound quality is excellent and I’m now able to stream music from my television directly to my hearing aids.
As a senior citizen, I appreciate the convenience that this product offers. It has allowed me to stay connected and enjoy my favorite shows and music. I highly recommend the Widex TV Play Bluetooth Streamer to anyone looking for an easy and convenient way to enhance their television experience.
Michael J. From Ann Arbor, MI. –
The Widex TV Play streamer is great for connecting your hearing aids to a computer or TV so that you can hear your show or zoom call. The quality of sound is amazing and you can even change the stream of the audio versus the surround sound. Highly recommended!
Gerald F. From Escondido, CA. –
Yeah, finally works with my new Moment hearing aids. Works well.

I wear Widex Evoke 440 hearing aids and they work well. But I had been struggling still to hear my television sell, particularly when there was a lot of background music, etc. on the TV. This TV-Play solved the issues for me. Worth the cost to me.

My wife has been asking me to turn the volume down on the TV for some time now. I’ve needed to have the volume up a bit so that I can hear the dialog then a commercial starts and blasts us out of the house!! I got a pair of hearing aids from HearSource and I saw this unit and thought it was pretty cool so I bought it hoping for the best. The price from this seller is way below others and just about the same if buying from the auction site. So I hooked this thing up to my TV, a no brainer, paired my hearing aids to it, no issues, and tested it on various programs. At first, I could hear the sound echo thru my hearing aids and also picking up the sound directly from the TV speakers. After turning down the volume on the TV, the echo disappeared. I’m making these adjustments using my iPhone. I can hear dialog clearly now and my wife can set the volume of the TV to her liking as the two are independent of each other. I went into the kitchen out of sight of the TV and could still pick up the sound. Well worth the money, highly recommended.
Daniel K. From Norfolk, NY. –
The sound is so much better from the TV to my Widex Evoke hearing aids. I can listen to the TV at whatever volume I desire and the wife can adjust the TV volume to her liking. Makes us both happy. Great product.
Chris. M. From Bethesda, VA. –
An excellent high-quality product. I control the TV sound using my smartphone. The sound is beamed via Bluetooth directly to my Widex hearing aids. My wife and I are able to watch TV together for the first time in a very long time.

Widex TV Play Review. Easy enough to set up and smaller than I had expected.
First impressions, it’s nice to have stereo sound in both my hearing aids again from more than just the phone. The transmitter seems strong enough to cover this old victorian terrace without dropping out. A bit of a hefty price tag at $379, but then again I don’t need to wear anything as I opted for Widex Evoke RIC’s this time around.
It looks like the EQ and balance levels are saved across reboots of phone, transmitter, or aids.
Not entirely sure how long I spent using the TV PLAY streaming today, but easily 8 hours, if not more. We will have to see how the week goes.
I can’t seem to change to listening to TV PLAY without using the app; not a huge problem but a little annoying.
All in all, it does what it is intended to do.

The TV Play connects great to my Widex Evoke hearing aids. After the initial connection, I get a TV program through the Widex Evoke App that lets me select and stream the audio from my television. Through the app, I get to control the volume played through my hearing aids and my wife can control the volume of the TV that’s comfortable for her. Very nice product!
