Widex USA In the Beginning
After the shocking events of Pearl Harbor, young Harold Spar and Henry Meltsner enlisted to serve their country in World War II. While in the navy, they learned what were, at that time, some top-secret technical skills that would serve them well later in life.
Upon leaving the Navy, Mr. Spar and Mr. Meltsner took the combined $400 that they received upon completion of their military service and, using some of the technical training that they received, began a company called Hal-Hen that quickly became and still is the world’s leading supplier of hearing aid accessories.
The rapid and worldwide success of Hal-Hen eventually led to Mr. Spar and Mr. Meltsner becoming involved with the Topholm and Westermann families from Denmark in 1956. The result of their collective efforts led to the creation of Widex USA.
At Widex, they combine years of understanding with a natural curiosity in finding hearing aid solutions to individual hearing loss. Their uncompromising approach to innovation has led to such advances as the world’s first fully digital in-the-ear hearing aid, as well as their own revolutionary wireless technology.
But hearing aids are more than the technology inside them. Not only should they help people hear better, they should be comfortable and easy to wear. Widex concentrates just as much on design of hearing aid solutions as on technology to create a near-natural hearing experience.
They also believe in clever solutions and that things can always be done better. Their entirely CO2-neutral headquarters in Denmark is testament to this commitment.
They listen to and work closely with professionals and users alike as they build on more than five decades of leading research and development in overcoming hearing loss.
In their continuous search for unique and clear solutions to complex problems, they strive to give people with hearing loss the same opportunity to communicate as those with normal hearing.
