Widex Compass GPS
Widex Compass GPS is a Windows program for hearing aid programming. It guides you through the fitting process, allowing for precise control over all audio parameters. Please note that Widex Compass GPS is distributed on a commercial basis. However, you can request a demo version on the official website.
After connecting the device to the computer users are able to manually tune the output volume and select the correct profile. The next step is to customize individual frequencies, tailoring the amplification to personal patient characteristics.
Like in ReSound Smart Fit, there is an option to boost certain bands to enhance speech clarity or soften unwanted background noise. Moreover, the integrated Audibility Extender module unlocks the higher frequencies often lost due to hearing loss. They are automatically transposed into lower, more audible ranges.
Real time feedback
The utility contains a live monitoring system that lets you hear and adjust the sound in real time. This dynamic feedback loop ensures that the hearing aid automatically adapts to every environment.
