HEAR ALL SOUNDS

Without two working ears, your brain has difficulty working out the precise origin of sounds. This means that it can be difficult to locate sounds. Imagine having to cross a busy street uncertain about which direction traffic is coming from.


Because it picks up sounds on your deaf side, WIDEX CROS helps you hear all the sounds around you. That means that you can hear sounds from your deaf side without turning your head.
