Oticon Real Hearing Aid Technology – New Features
More Sound Intelligence 2.0
MoreSound Intelligence 2.0 – scans the sound environment 500 times a second resulting in an accurate analysis of the sound landscape. It applies the users preferred listening preferences to deliver a natural representation of all sounds in a clear and balanced listening experience.
The new Wind and Handling Stabiliser detects wind and handling 500 times a second. Once wind or handing is seen, the hearing aid reduces the unwanted sounds without affecting speech clarity.
MoreSound Amplifier 2.0
MoreSound Amplifier makes the whole sound scene audible by providing the correct amount of gain for the users hearing loss while maintaining the fine contrast and balance between sounds. This ensures the brain can access all the essential information it needs to make sense of sound.
The new SuddenSound Stabiliser feature allows the hearing aid to handle both soft (keyboards) and loud sudden sounds (slamming of a door), ensuring the sounds are audible but not uncomfortable and disruptive.
MoreSound Optimiser proactively prevents feedback (whistling) from the hearing aid before it occurs. This ensures the hearing aid provides optimal gain for the wearer in all listening environments without losing speech understanding.
