Widex Hearing Aids
The combined talents of gifted electronics engineer Christian Tøpholm and successful businessman Erik Westermann were the beginning point for establishing Widex hearing aids in 1956. While employed with Oticon from 1949 to 1955, the two helped the company’s production increase tenfold, while exports increased from 20% to 90%.
On their own, they were able to produce the Widex 561, an elegant pocket model hearing aid released in mid-1956, by applying exacting standards in research, development, and manufacturing; a commitment to delivering innovative technology; the establishment of long-term partnerships with hearing care providers; and a “passion for sound” that allowed them to become leaders in the hearing aid industry.
Widex took a leading role in 21st-century innovation by developing one of the most advanced AI sound engines on the market. Added to AI technology are personalization capabilities and seamless integration with other digital technology.
The company’s merger with Sivantos in 2019 led to the formation of the WS Audiology Group, the third-largest hearing aid manufacturer in the world.

“It’s not your fault if you have a hearing loss, and you deserve to hear without having to ask people to repeat everything to you.”
My family has a history of hearing difficulties, with my grandmother being born deaf and several of my aunts and uncles struggling with hearing as well.
“The results have been much better than I ever could have imagined.”
I was advised to get my hearing checked, but my first experience left me feeling like I was being sold a package of goods. That all changed when I met Dr. Nelson. He is a true professional who explained everything and answered all my concerns, which made me feel confident in his care.
“My worries were quickly alleviated when I visited West Coast Hearing & Balance Center.”
I was very concerned about how I would appear to other people if I were to need a hearing aid. Would they see me as old or disabled? And the thought of being dependent on something to hear was daunting.
