The most exciting advancement in hearing aids has been the rechargeable battery. The following brands all have rechargeability in their products. Rechargeable hearing aids remove the worry of replacing a tiny hearing aid battery once a week. Now, you can simply place your hearing aids into the recharging station over night and wake up to fully charged devices.

Since its inception, Widex has been committed to three core values that continue to inform our decisions and inspire our work:
Widex has never followed the beaten path. We have our own audiological identity, and always aim for the best audiological solutions for people with hearing loss. Our originality also comes to expression through our flat organisational structure, which facilitates interdisciplinary work and the production of innovative solutions.
Through professionalism and broad interdisciplinary expertise, Widex has created a solid foundation for co-operation with teacher training colleges, research institutes and independent experts from all over the world. When we get hold of a good idea, we nurture it and work hard to realise it.
For Widex, reliability means thorough quality control of each individual hearing aid, as well as a good partnership with our world-wide network of subsidiaries and distributors. Reliability also means ensuring that our hearing aid users are provided with comprehensive and reliable information.
Widex USA In the Beginning
After the shocking events of Pearl Harbor, young Harold Spar and Henry Meltsner enlisted to serve their country in World War II. While in the navy, they learned what was, at that time, some top secret technical skills that would serve them well later in life. Upon leaving the Navy, Mr. Spar and Mr. Meltsner took the combined $400 that they received upon completion of their military service and using some of the technical training that they received began a company called Hal-Hen that quickly became and still is the world’s leading supplier of hearing aid accessories. The rapid and worldwide success of Hal-Hen eventually led to Mr. Spar and Mr. Meltsner becoming involved with the Topholm and Westermann families from Denmark in 1956. The result of their collective efforts led to the creation of Widex USA.
At Widex, we combine years of understanding with a natural curiosity in finding solutions to individual hearing loss. Our uncompromising approach to innovation has led to such advances as the world’s first fully digital in-the-ear hearing aid, as well as our own revolutionary wireless technology. But hearing aids are more than the technology inside them. Not only should they help people hear better, they should be comfortable and easy to wear. We concentrate just as much on design of hearing aids as on technology to create a near-natural hearing experience. We also believe in clever solutions and that things can always be done better. Our entirely CO2-neutral headquarters in Denmark is testament to this commitment. We listen to and work closely with professionals and users alike as we build on more than five decades of leading research and development in overcoming hearing loss. In our continuous search for unique and clear solutions to complex problems, we strive to give people with hearing loss the same opportunity to communicate as those with normal hearing.

Oticon is a global company that helped to pioneer the hearing industry more than a hundred years ago. Today Oticon is one of the largest companies in the industry and a consistent leader in the science and technology of hearing.
Compassion guiding innovation. It’s the principle that directs Oticon’s business, and it means that they work hard to put people first in everything we do. When we say “People First” in an ad or on a web page, it is more than a commitment to help you hear better; it’s a promise to keep your needs at the center of their business each and every day. It all began with the founder, Danish businessman and devoted husband Hans Demant. Demant’s wife suffered from serious hearing loss. Out of his love for her and his compassion for her condition came an understanding of the role that hearing plays in living a full life, both for people with hearing loss and for their loved ones. Demant decided to devote his life to finding new technology that would help his wife cope with her loss. In 1904, he founded Oticon based on his commitment to compassionate innovation.
The Foundation at the top
Today, Oticon is still guided by the vision of Hans Demant and his son William through the Oticon Foundation which oversees the growth and direction of Oticon and its partner companies. The Foundation’s charter requires it to manage the business and to direct charitable activities that help people with hearing loss and improve the science of better hearing. Through this unique, corporation-wide commitment to people and hearing, People First has become the principle that guides our industry-leading research in hearing technology, psychoacoustics and human behavior. People First means that our passion is not just to create superior hearing instruments — it also fuels our commitment to empower people to communicate freely, interact naturally and participate actively in life.
Technology that’s second to none
Since the first days of electrical hearing aids, when hearing instruments were unnatural-sounding and hard to use, Oticon has led the effort to make hearing technology a more natural-sounding and transparent part of life. Research and experience have shown us that the more effortless and natural the sound from your hearing instrument, the easier it is for you to participate fully in the world around you. This understanding has led Oticon to develop many industry firsts: the first fully automatic hearing instrument, the first digital hearing instrument, the first hearing instrument with artificial intelligence, one of the first instruments to use wireless binaural technology and the first design-focused hearing instrument. Today, Oticon holds many patents in advanced hearing technology and their products are built with features available nowhere else: Speech Guard, which delivers more natural sounding speech; Spatial Sound, which preserves your ability to know where a sound is coming from; Connectivity, which links you to TV, computers and smartphones; and many other leading-edge capabilities that are exclusive to Oticon.
Your hearing is no place for compromise
Because Oticon has invested so much in studying the role that hearing plays in an engaged, productive life, they design hearing instruments to deliver the most natural sound possible. As a result, Oticon products work smarter, so you don’t have to work harder at hearing. With Oticon products, there are no shortcuts in research, technology or design. They believe, and we think you’ll agree, that your hearing — and your life — are too important to settle for less. For more information about the products available through Oticon, Click Here.
