Innovative Hearing Devices From Oticon

Oticon is another of the top 3 hearing aid manufacturers in the world and they are based in Denmark. Oticon is one of many hearing technology-related businesses owned by the company William Demant Holdings. The company was founded by Hans Demant in 1904. Demant had a passion to help his wife, who had hearing loss, to lead a better life. Demant's passion, to empower people in need of hearing support, is what has driven the company ever since. Their motto is "People First".

Oticon has just introduced their latest device which they call the Opn, it is an interesting device with a slew of innovations that deliver a better experience for users. One of the most interesting things though is its use of the internet and the IFTTT network.

Opn Hearing Aids

Oticon's Latest Most Advanced Premium Solution

Oticon's Opn hearing aids are truly a groundbreaking hearing device range. They are so small they are practically invisible but they also come in a range of shades and bright colours. The internet-enabled Oticon Opn comes with a number of additional features because it can connect to devices via the internet and Bluetooth. The hearing aids will connect directly to your Smartphone so you can make phone calls and listen to music without any intermediate streaming device. They are also water resistant to 1m.

The devices can be connected to any device that has a Bluetooth connection. This means that the hearing aids can also be connected to things like doorbells, appliances, or even baby monitors. Then when the doorbell rings, for example, the person gets a small 'ring' in their ear to let them know. This is the premium hearing aid in Oticon’s range which uses their new Velox Sense processing chip. This range is a completely new way of processing sound and is suitable for more demanding listening environments.

Custom Made For iPhone Hearing Aids

Oticon announced in June 2018 that they would be launching in the ear hearing aids on the Opn platform. The devices are expected to be introduced in quarter four 2018. There will be a full range of in the ear hearing aid types in the range, but the two smallest, the CIC and the IIC will not. We will add all the details here when the hearing aids are launched.

Less stress. Remember more. Better hearing

Oticon Opn™ introduces groundbreaking technology that is fast enough to support the brain. With precision and accuracy, it analyzes the acoustic environment and differentiates between the individual sounds. The result is a significant improvement in the ability to understand speech in complex environments while, at the same time, preserving mental energy – ultimately empowering users to Open Up to the World. Users are provided with more accurate information making it easier to locate and separate sound sources so they can focus on what they find important. This happens so quickly it facilitates the listener’s ability to change focus when desired. The system gives you 360 degree sound while still ensuring the background does not overwhelm the speech you want to hear. Changing Hearing aids forever, from closing your world to opening it up again

Old hearing aid directionality to new hearing aid directionality

One open sound experience
Three levels of BrainHearing™ support

BrainHearing™ support is delivered by a unique combination of technologies working together to reduce listening effort and provide the brain with better conditions to perform in. The Oticon Opn range has now been expanded into three levels of technology, Level 1 which is top of the range, level 2 and level 3. 

Opn hearing aids technology levels

All three members of the Oticon Opn™ family provide the open sound experience that is proving so popular. However, each model gives the brain a different level of assistance – a different level of BrainHearing™ support. Oticon has not stopped at that though, they have also expanded the fitting range of the Opn devices and they can now fit even profound hearing losses.

Oticon On App

The Oticon ON app lets you adjust volume, switch programs and check the battery level. The app also offers convenient 'find my hearing aid' search feature, counselling advice and links to user instructions. The app is also where the connection to the IFTTT network happens. 

A World of Possibilities

Oticon Opn is the world's first hearing aid that connects to the internet via the If This Then That network (IFTTT.com)

If you want your lights to turn on automatically when you switch your hearing aids on or want to be notified by your hearing aids that someone is at your door then these are a few of the limitless possibilities available using ifttt. Oticon has introduced their own recipes that can be easily downloaded, however, it is easy to make new recipes for action. 

The Oticon Opn seems to have really caught the imagination of both professionals and users alike. It is a particularly popular aid and the feedback from users is excellent. It seems that the Opn may be a real winner for Oticon. 

Oticon Connect Clip

Streaming Audio

The ConnectClip will allow you to stream the sound from any modern smartphone, tablet or computer directly into your hearing aids. Low energy use and a microphone for capturing your speech make your hearing aids into a wireless headset with all the benefits that come with the hands-free experience.

High-quality audio capability lets you stream stereo music from any of your devices straight into your ears. A richer sound with more details delivers a quality experience that is less strenuous to listen to.

Remote Microphone

Not satisfied with delivering an outstanding streaming audio experience, Oticon went a step further. The ConnectClip also functions as a remote microphone, which means you can give it to someone who is speaking and then hear their voice clearly and directly in your hearing aids. Ideal to help you hear better in more complex situations. 

Remote Control

Yep, streaming audio and remote microphone just wasn't enough, so they added a remote control functionality as well. You can use your ConnectClip as a remote control. That means that you can control the volume of your Opn hearing aids, switch programmes, and turn them on and off remotely.

One Integrated Device, Great Value

Inium Sense

In 2015, Oticon launched their new Inium Sense platform which built on their BrainHearing Technology. It gives better sound quality and faster processing. Thanks to this technology, Oticon currently have some of the most advanced hearing aids available on the market today. They split their hearing aid technology by name, for instance, their top of the range technology is Alta, their mid-range technology is Nera and their basic technology is Ria, however within each level of technology they have two different levels. The better type is always called Pro.

Inium Sense delivers up to 20% better soft speech understanding.

The Inium Sense platform brings improved processing power to BrainHearing™ technologies for better performance and improved personalization. Oticon, Inc. has introduced the Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2 hearing aids ranges, the latest hearing solutions in the Performance Line families and the first to be powered by Oticon’s new Inium Sense Platform.  The new even more sophisticated sound processor increases the processing power of Oticon’s proven BrainHearing™ technologies by 30% to deliver the purest possible sound signal for the brain to decode.

They say the result is a more natural listening experience with less effort. Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2, are available in a wide range of styles including a smaller design for their very popular minRITE style. RITE and miniRITE styles can also now be fitted with a more powerful Receiver Mould option, which increases the fitting range of these more discreet styles to meet the needs of more patients.

Better Soft Speech Intelligibility & A Tinnitus Feature

Oticon has also focused on soft sounds in speech to boost intelligibility, something that Widex have been doing for years. The powerful Inium Sense feedback shield and Voice Aligned Compression (VAC+) with Soft Speech Booster give up to 20% improvement in soft speech understanding and an enhanced ability to hear soft speech without turning up the volume against their older hearing aids. Alta2 Pro, Nera2 Pro and Ria2 Pro are available with Oticon’s Tinnitus SoundSupport™. Oticon has also introduced a new Tinnitus feature called Tinnitus SoundSupport™, it is available in select Performance Line solutions to provide a personalized solution for patients living with tinnitus. Tinnitus SoundSupport™ has been developed to meet your tinnitus management goals.

Better performance, improved personalization, more satisfaction

Inium Sense introduces a range of next-generation BrainHearing technology benefits.  The new Voice Aligned Compression (VAC+) fitting rationale with Soft Speech Booster improves the audibility of soft sounds.  Inium Sense solutions factor in more patient sound preferences, such as soft sound perception, to provide a better, more personalised first-time fit and less fine-tuning to facilitate your acceptance and long-term satisfaction.

The integrated Tinnitus SoundSupport with user-friendly fitting software enables us to customise settings to patients’ needs.  Built-in ocean and broadband sounds help ease the effects of tinnitus. More sounds can be accessed through the new Oticon Tinnitus App, available for free download on the App Store.

New Styles 

The Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2 hearing aids are available in styles and price points to suit a wide range of needs and preferences.  Oticon has introduced a new miniRITE style which features a more compact and discreet design with an easy-to-feel push button. As before, all BTE and RITE style devices in the hearing aid families are designed to withstand active lifestyles and are IP58 classified, demonstrating a high degree of water resistance.

Oticon Ria hearing aidsFor a hearing aid to work well, there is much more to think about than simply making sounds louder. This is because of the manner in which we hear, your ears work together to locate where a sound is coming from and to help you choose what to listen to. your ears simply pick up sounds and send them to your brain. Which is where you actually hear, your brain translates those sounds into meaning. When you have a hearing loss, you need hearing aids to help you pick up all of the information contained in sounds to be able to send it to the brain.

The more detailed the information your brain receives, the easier it is to identify and understand what you are hearing. The Ria hearing aids offer excellent sound quality and preserve sounds in their natural form to make hearing both easy and realistic. The key to Ria2’s excellent sound quality is the tiny but extremely powerful Inium sound processing chip, the same chip that is used in the premium and mid-level aids. This enables Ria2 to process a huge range of different sounds, sending more information of high quality to your brain. This helps you to understand conversations better, even in noisy environments.
