Take a trip down memory lane with co-founder Erik Westermann
When Christian Tøpholm and I first came up with the idea to begin our own hearing aid company, we never imagined just how big the company would become...

FASHION MINI: a small behind-the-ear hearing aid that, despite its size, still gives hearing aid users the UNIQUE sound.

In 1985, Widex received the respected Danish design award, the ID PRIZE, for the world's first in-the-ear hearing aid with the same high technical quality as the best behind-the-ear hearing aids, as well as a ground-breaking design. 

Prime minister Poul Schlüter presented the ID PRIZE to Erik Westermann. Co-founder Christian Tøpholm died after a traffic accident in the same year. It was very much thanks to his great efforts that the Audilens had become such a successful product.

Widex 561: Widex’ first hearing aid - an elegant pocket model!

Jeff Loran started work at Widex as a young toolmaker in 1961. He managed to celebrate 40 years at Widex before saying goodbye to begin his retirement.

"Christian Tøpholm often came past to talk about some of the things we were doing. It meant a lot to us to be visited by a director someone who, like us, was interested in technology and the various new models," Jeff Loran recalls.  

An American dispenser in Ohio in the 1960's used a Mini as an eye-catcher.
