In the latest stride towards audiological excellence, Widex has launched the SmartRIC hearing aid, blending cutting-edge technology with sleek design to redefine the hearing experience. The SmartRIC, characterized by its innovative L-shaped design, aims to enhance natural hearing by optimizing microphone placement for superior speech capture and noise reduction​​​​​​​​.

A Leap in Design and Functionality

The distinctive L-shaped design of SmartRIC isn't merely aesthetic; it serves a critical auditory function. By elevating the microphones and aligning them more horizontally on the ear, SmartRIC vastly improves the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), especially in bustling environments. This strategic placement allows for enhanced directional hearing, focusing on the sounds and conversations that matter most to the wearer​​​​​​.

Unparalleled Sound Quality

Widex's commitment to natural sound is evident in the SmartRIC. Incorporating the company's renowned PureSound™ with ZeroDelay™ technology, the device delivers sound with minimal processing delay, ensuring a more authentic listening experience. This approach not only reduces the artificial sound often associated with digital hearing aids but also strengthens the brain's signal processing, offering a clearer and more natural sound experience​​​​.

Enduring Power and Convenience

The SmartRIC sets a new benchmark for battery life and convenience in the receiver-in-canal (RIC) category. Offering up to 37 hours of use on a single charge, it stands as Widex's longest-lasting rechargeable RIC hearing aid. Additionally, the device comes with a first-of-its-kind portable charging case, providing up to five extra charges, ensuring wearers stay connected without the hassle of frequent recharging​​​​​​.

Designed for Modern Needs

Beyond its technical advancements, SmartRIC is designed with the user's lifestyle in mind. The device's sleek profile and rounded edges, inspired by modern aesthetics, offer a discreet and comfortable wearing experience. Available in a selection of colors, it meets both the auditory and aesthetic needs of today's hearing aid wearers​​.


Widex's SmartRIC represents a significant advancement in hearing aid technology, offering an optimal blend of natural sound quality, innovative design, and user convenience. By rethinking microphone placement and leveraging advanced sound processing technologies, SmartRIC promises a listening experience that's as close to natural hearing as possible. As we move forward, devices like SmartRIC are set to transform the landscape of auditory assistance, making every sound clearer and every moment more engaging.
