Oticon OPN Hearing Aids
Includes – 5-year Warranty
Oticon is the largest hearing aid manufacturer based in Denmark. Oticon is part of the William Dermant Group, including hearing aid manufacturer Bernafon.
The Oticon Opn 1 was Oticon’s top-of-the-range hearing aid, designed for users with the most active lifestyles.
Oticon OPN was released in 2016. Oticon OPN, MORE and Oticon Real have superseded the RIC and BTE styles. For in-the-ear hearing aids, OPN is still Oticon’s premier technology.
Oticon OPN Technology
The Oticon Opn range of hearing runs on the Velox Platform. The OpenSound Navigator operating system can scan the sound landscape 56,000 times a second. As it analyses all this information, the OpenSound Navigator processes speech from all directions while ignoring any unwanted noise signal. The result is that the user can locate and choose to focus on speech from any direction. By contrast, traditional hearing aids focus only on speech coming from in front of the user and suppress all sound from the sides and behind (directionality).
By opening up the world to the user by allowing 360-degree hearing, Oticon’s research concludes that by giving the brain more information to perform, the listening experience is enhanced, listening effort is reduced, and speech understanding is improved. Oticon calls this Brain Hearing.
The Oticon On App allows the user to control and adjust their Oticon hearing aids.
The App also allows users to connect their hearing aids to other devices using the (IFTTT) protocol. For example, a user could get a notification in their hearing aids when the doorbell rings or a text message could be sent to the carer when they turn on their hearing aids.
Oticon has made-for-iPhone (MFi) technology built in, meaning you can take calls or stream music direct from an iPhone. For Android and other Bluetooth devices, an Oticon Connect Clip is required.
Oticon Opn has three technology levels in the range Opn 1, 2 and 3. Full features and a comparison can be found on our product pages.
