Newsletter


 

Widex Factory Field TripWidex, Inc., one of the world’s largest manufacturers of hearing aids, hosted Long Island Doctor of Audiology Consortium second year students at their U.S. headquarters in Hauppauge, New York. Our students took a tour of the facility and got a first-hand look at how repairs and new orders are processed.

The detail-oriented setup stressed the importance of organization and a speedy process. Two lecturers gave information about the company. One described what set Widex apart from the other “big six” hearing companies, and explained new technological features of their products. The other described the future of the industry, focusing on how the “Over the Counter” law is not the end of the road for audiologists, rather just another change in practice we must adjust to. The Widex mission is to provide the absolute best hearing aids and customer services. “Helping people hear is our business.”
