Building on Opn’s revolutionary benefits, Oticon is expanding the portfolio with more styles and new features. Now there are even more reasons to choose Oticon Opn, the world’s first internet connected hearing aid.
In complex listening environments where sound sources are many, dynamic and unpredictable, the limitations of traditional hearing aid technology has led to the use of narrow directionality to make speech coming from the front clear. All other sounds – speech and noise alike – are reduced, leaving the user with a narrowed, artificial listening experience. This restricts the acoustical information to the brain and deprives it of context, making it harder for it to focus naturally and switch attention to something else when needed. This prevents the user from following conversations with multiple speakers in a natural way.
Groundbreaking technology in Oticon Opn literally opens up the world. Fast and precise enough to support the brain, it can analyze and follow the dynamics of the soundscape and differentiate between speech and noise. By rapidly and precisely reducing disturbing noise, it allows users to access and handle multiple speakers simultaneously, even in complex environments. This groundbreaking approach empowers the brain to choose what to focus on and to change focus readily, leaving users in better control.
The Oticon Opn comes in three different performance levels and three different styles to meet the needs of people with mild to severe – profound hearing loss. At the best performance level, users experience 20% less listening effort, 20% more capacity to remember, and 30% better speech understanding. The Oticon Opn now offers a rechargeable option and is the first rechargeable hearing aid with 2.4 GHz direct streaming from iPhone, Apple Watch, TVs, radios, laptops and more. Oticon also added their Tinnitus Sound Support feature which can be programmed to create customized relief sounds for people who are suffering with tinnitus, as well as a T-coil.
