Description

Watching television can sometimes be a challenge for hearing aid users. However, the Widex TV-DEX seeks to change that. It allows high-quality audio to be streamed directly to your hearing aid with zero delay.

The TV-Dex is a purpose-built two-element system for streaming TV and HiFi audio in incredibly high quality. These two elements are the TV-Controller II and the TV-Base, which charges the controller. Meanwhile, the TV-Base plugs into the power source and television. The TV-Controller II is easily lifted from the base and can be worn around the neck with the provided lanyard while in use.

How to use:

The TV-Base fully charges in around 4 hours, ideal for powering up overnight. This in turn yields up to 10 hours of uninterrupted stereo streaming. Furthermore, the “EchoFree” technology designed by Widex results in an ultra-low delay in the transmission of sound, giving a clear and undistorted finish.

To begin sound transmission, press the transmission on/off key on the controller once. An acoustic signal will sound in your hearing aids and the LED indicator will turn green. Walk out of operating range and the transmission will stop, but on re-entering the range the connection will re-establish automatically.

Simple, tactile up/down buttons on the controller allow for easy volume adjustments without having to search for the television remote. Have the volume at the level you like without disturbing other members of the household – everyone is happy!

A separate button, “Room Off”, switches the hearing aid microphones off. When enabled, this means that you will not hear annoying and distracting sounds from around the house in the background. Turn this function when you want to hear your partner.

Compatibility:

The Widex TV-Dex is compatible with Widex Evoke*, Beyond/Beyond Z, Unique*, Dream* and Super.

*except for CIC microdevices.

    Well packed and works fine.

    Despite being on ‘back order’ it was delivered within a couple of weeks. Sorting out the wiring to the TV was straightforward but will depend on the features of your set. Getting the hearing aids to pair with the dongle was difficult with no advice provided in the manual. These steps worked:
    Charge dongle overnight,
    Place dongle and hearing aids on table,
    Open and close hearing aid battery compartment,
    Press and hold dongle top button for at least five seconds.
    The range from dongle to TV is fine in open space but down a corridor and into a bedroom causes loss of signal. It reconnects quickly when back in the room. The sound quality is excellent and far exceeds wearing headphones on top of hearing aids. It’s highly recommended but a little expensive.
