Here at The Hearing Blog, we like to publish First Person Reports from people describing how technology that supposedly looks good on paper isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, such as London flautist and blogress Deafinitely Girly who exposes a major flaw in non-linear frequency compression (NFC) in Hearing aid update: My flute and Paper Aeroplanes. After the glowing review of my hearing aids and my audiologist, it is unfortunate that I have to be so negative about the other component in question.
Bluetooth pairing with iPad — when I pair it with my iPad to watch a film, the quality is remarkable as I have noted earlier.
Changing programs — this is moderately useful, though I am able to change it directly on my hearing aids. When a Bluetooth device drops a connection, such as my iPhone or iPad doing so when not actively playing sounds, it switches to the Master program, and loudly announces it.
Further compounding the unacceptable state of affairs, it does not work well as a headset or headphones. The M-DEX barely works with the iPad and iPhone outside the context of a phone call — as I have mentioned before, it works as a hands-free profile, and a headphone profile. The microphone quality on the M-DEX is poor — I would have imagined that Widex with its state of the art research into microphone and signal quality, would be able to put some of this technology into the M-DEX. Effectively, the only way I can do phone calls with the M-DEX is as a handsfree headset for phone calls. Also rage-inducing is the fact that this device only pairs with one bluetooth device at a time. It is obvious that the people who worked on the M-DEX have no understanding of people with hearing loss and their actual needs. That other devices would maintain a Bluetooth connection throughout the life of the session. That the user would want the program to actively change when the Bluetooth connection drops.
That the user would not care about his own voice quality with the shoddy microphone — sometimes, those of us that have hearing loss need every bit of clarity that can be transmitted to the other party, due to accents or inflections. That they do not need to put thought or effort into the user interface of the device — the paths to some of the functionality are simplified to the point of being un-simple to use. It is extremely unfortunate that with all the careful engineering and thought that Widex put into the hearing aid instruments, to see them fumble so severely with the M-DEX. Also, even though the M-Dex presents as an A2DP headset to the sending device, in fact (and unlike the TV-DEX) it only transmits a channel mixed monaural signal to the hearing aids. The USB jack only has two pins connected for charging, and is not capable of accepting any digital data. However, severely deaf and power junkie users will gag at the downright fuggly power Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE) assemblies, which are built even if the patient has a large canal: Starkey can get their AP70 RIC into a canal mold with the same receiver. Although somewhat quirky, and with a lack of programming granularity with everything tied to the Master program, the Widex Clear, Super and Dream hearing aids offer good performance, especially with music.


It’s been brought to our attention from several of our readers that they were having their comments rejected by the Akismet plug-in for WordPress as spam. Shutting off the voice alerts defeats the whole premise of them; and not only are they the best quality out there, they are needed due to the byzantine program structure. I cannot connect it to any computer for use with simple system sounds, but more importantly, with Skype, which is a major business phone app for me. That said, I’m fine when on my iPhone, with only occasional complaints, mostly I assumed due to poor cell network performance.
So, a final comment and a question for fellow M-Dex users: The M-Dex is a piece of crap, and likely a known embarrassment to Widex, so they are using the “damage control” approach and just not acknowledging the poor quality or any clear path of resolution.
Question: will any other non-Widex Bluetooth device work as a microphone to pair with my hearing aids? Do you mean you were connected to your mobile phone via Bluetooth, or you had the T-coil in the M-Dex enabled?
My recommendation is to go back to your hearing aid professional and call her while you are there, so she can hear the transmitted audio: It should be crystal clear. Hearing is one important sense, especially according to these Connect Hearing May 2011 print ads. Although many may not be able to say they've been caught water-skiing in front of a boat, I'm sure they can still imagine it wouldn't be too much fun!
This First Person Report is quite astute, and in fact raises additional points that even we had not discovered with our own M-Dex and Clear 440 Fusions with high power RITE’s. The M-DEX is a piece of shit — I am a software engineer and architect, and I have never seen such poor interface quality or assumptions about the listener. So the cycle happens like this: The program on the iPhone or iPad plays, the bluetooth connection is brought up, a beep emanates from my hearing aids. The Widex engineers obviously did no testing or quality assurance outside of mobile phones. Which is unfortunate, as my mobile phone quality is far inferior to what I can get over VoIP which is important to me as a Deaf person. I am a software engineer, and I get a little confused as to how to get to certain functionality. If I have it paired with my iPad and want to use it with my iPhone, I have to go through the whole pairing process. This is perhaps due to being an entirely different product and project than the hearing aids themselves which are wonderful.
The whole experience is basically like getting a flawless one-hundred yard pass for the touchdown, and then suddenly fumbling and going back thirty yards.
Although we can see the RITE earpiece being used for the Output Extender plumbing (which is negated anyway when the Sensogram is used… Duhhh), it being supplied for standard earpieces is dodgy at best.


However, if you’ll be a heavy user of audio streaming, we recommend the ReSound Verso instead, as their Unite wireless accessories work much better, especially the Mini Mic and new Phone Clip Plus.
I’m curious if it is a defective M-Dex, or if it is reproducible with another unit in the same environment. Of course, it wouldn't be too much fun being run over by a boat or hit by a big piece of lumber due to hearing loss now, would it? Three print ads came out in the Connect Hearing May 2011 series, each one featuring a different unfortunate situation.
It does not work at all with my Mac laptop or my Mac desktop — when I attempt to play sounds through it, the M-DEX believes it to be a phone call for the duration of the sound effect and then disconnect.
Skype on my iPad and iPhone is a no-go due to this — I briefly get a connection and then it drops.
If an user is using this device for other purposes, the user does not want to hear the loud announcement that the program has changed.
Bluetooth is much more versatile than that, and they should have expected that an user would want to use this device with their computer or to watch films on a mobile device with. Unfortunately, we have to use something to screen for spam, as we were receiving over 100 spam comments per day at its’ peak.
Your audiologist will have to make these adjustments through the Widex Compass hearing aid fitting software. This causes the computer to no longer play sound effects through the Bluetooth connection, as it is disconnected. As any antenna engineer, or even Ham radio hobbyist will tell you, this is one hell of a feat to pull off in the 28 meter band, but somehow the Widex engineers accomplished this dubious feat.
At present, we have to take a Dremel grinder to make this vital acoustic modification; however when this is done, the wax filter is lost. Most of the time, it does not even work — the computer tells me that there was a Bluetooth error. What this means is that the wearer must slide the M-Dex 6-8 inches up the lanyard, and then button the bottom of the lanyard into the shirt… Or safety-pin it for a pullover shirt.
I have two TV-Dex base stations, one for my living room TV and the other in my study connected to my PC to stream music (stereo) and to receive Skype calls.
This means that once it is buttoned or pinned into place for streaming, it has to be unpinned to lift it up to see the display and keys. Granted, some of this is due to the antenna design in the hearing aids themselves, as the instruments also communicate with each other; but nonetheless it is still a poor design… And one the TV-Dex does not suffer as badly from.
