Finally, Another Hearing Aid Brand With Made For iPhone Custom Hearing Aids
I have been speaking at some events for Oticon this week, if you have been trying to email me I apologise, email has been spotty at best. Anyway, back to Oticon, during the conferences they announced that they are going to launch the Opn customs in quarter four this year and the majority of them will be direct streaming (Made For iPhone). They will be only the second hearing aid brand with Made For iPhone custom hearing aids.
Details Are Tight
So, they are keeping the details tight at this stage, but we received a pretty good heads up of what will be available. The Opn customs will be available from full shell all the way down to invisible in the canal. However, they will not all be Made For iPhone which is pretty much in line with what is on offer from the only other brand in this market sector. The line up is as follows:
- ITE Full Shell (Made For iPhone)
- ITE Half Shell (Made For iPhone)
- ITC In The Canal (Made For iPhone)
- CIC Completely In Canal (Not Made For iPhone but is wireless)
- IIC Invisible In Canal (Not Made For iPhone, not wireless)
An invisible hearing aid that will fit eight out of ten people!
An Even Smaller Invisible Hearing Aid
Another striking bit of news is that Oticon has managed to make their IIC even smaller than ever. It means that they are now confident to say that their IIC will physically fit the ears of eight out of ten people. That's a strong claim but Oticon are happy to make it. The device is not wireless, but what do you want from such a small hearing aid?
We will, of course, keep you updated on it.
