Empathy is at the heart of the Oticon brand. Hans Demant, the company’s founder, knew exactly how hearing loss could affect daily life. His wife suffered with hearing loss, and that inspired him to create devices that could make a real difference. It’s this ‘People First’ principle that drives the business forward and resonates with our own values here at The Hearing Care Partnership.
Technology in the hearing sector is constantly evolving to help our brains decipher the sounds around us. The latest aid in the Oticon range, the Oticon More is fitted with MoreSound Intelligence™, which gathers and optimises sound, giving you access to complete sound scenes, making certain sounds clearer in contrast with your surroundings.
Oticon believes their highly intelligent Deep Neural Network (DNN) is the reason for this breakthrough in hearing aid technology. The DNN provides hearing aids with a unique way of viewing your hearing. Oticon’s cutting edge technology creates hearing aids with artificial intelligence built in, meaning you can access clearer and more authentic sounds, from multiple sources around you.
Oticon has developed The Polaris Platform for its flagship aid, Oticon More, and TwinLink™ for Opn. This combination of two dedicated communication systems provides the wearer powerful streaming system. Now you get instant wireless connectivity for smartphones, televisions, laptops and other devices; effectively transforming your hearing aid into a discreet, user-friendly audio headset.
You’ll have full advantage of twice the computer power and speed, providing you with a faster and more accurate sound straight from your devices – while also delivering 30% more sound to your brain.
In the digital era Oticon has developed an app to connect its Opn and More hearing aids with the internet. Wearers can control their device by adjusting settings, checking the battery status and switching programmes via the Oticon ON app.
The app can link your hearing aid with almost any device in the home, connect you to the Internet of Things and even provide you with a personal alert when the doorbell rings, giving users a sense of freedom and control.
Oticon’s self-adjusting hearing aids means there’s little input required from the user. They can automatically adjust to different environments, with the volume level and settings seamlessly transitioning from the hustle and bustle of a city centre to a quiet night at home.
If you’re a tinnitus sufferer an Oticon hearing aid could be particularly transformational, as customisable sounds help to tune out this condition. Amplification settings can also be adjusted to help ease symptoms.
