Oticon just released two New Opn Styles, Power Options and Tinnitus SoundSupport™ But they didn't stop there, they also released a rechargeable MiniRITE. In fact like Unitron before them, the system is backward compatible. So if you have Oticon Opn MiniRITEs, you can now upgrade them to rechargeable hearing aids.
Oticon is expanding the award-winning Oticon Opn™ range with new styles and a rechargeable hearing aid option. The original Oticon Opn™ miniRITE hearing aids will now be available as a rechargeable hearing solution. In the same way Unitron has made their rechargeable option backward compatible, all Oticon Opn miniRITE hearing aids sold since the introduction last year and going forward can be retrofitted to be rechargeable.
All-day Power With the easy-to-use charger, Opn miniRITE can now be powered throughout the day by simply placing the hearing aids in the charger overnight. The rechargeable solution give users maximum flexibility to interchange the rechargeable 312 batteries with disposable batteries if the user forgets to recharge the hearing aids overnight. It is estimated that one pair of environmentally friendly rechargeable batteries can save approximately 150-200 disposable batteries per year.
Expanding The Hearing Aid Types
Oticon is expanding the Opn family with the introduction of two new Opn styles. It has also announced that it is integrating Tinnitus SoundSupport™ and Speech Rescue™ LX into all Opn styles and performance levels. The new small, discreet miniRITE-T and the powerful BTE 13 PP give people with mild to severe-to-profound hearing loss access to Opn’s revolutionary open sound experience. Even more benefits are available to Opn users with the addition of two proven features, Tinnitus SoundSupport™ and Speech Rescue™ LX. The newly added features offer customizable relief sounds for tinnitus suffers and improved clarity and speech understanding for people with high frequency hearing loss.
More Styles to Fit More People
The sleek and discreet miniRITE-T (which you can see above) features a telecoil and double pushbutton for easy volume and program control. The powerful and compact BTE13 PP (see below) fits hearing losses up to 105 dB SPL to benefit people with severe-to-profound hearing loss. The plus power solution features a telecoil, a tactile double pushbutton for easy volume and program control and a two-color LED indicator to monitor hearing aid status for both users and caregivers.
The fully featured hearing aids include Tinnitus SoundSupport, Speech Rescue LX, DSL, and TwinLink™ with 2.4GHz wireless technology for direct streaming to iPhone® and audio devices.*
Tinnitus Relief Sounds
Oticon Opn now combines the BrainHearing™ benefits of a balanced and rich sound experience that doesn’t overload the brain and a powerful solution for tinnitus relief. Tinnitus SoundSupport™ allows hearing care professionals to address the needs of people who experience both hearing loss and tinnitus with a wide range of customizable relief sounds including broadband and ocean-like sounds. The Oticon ON App gives users the flexibility to easily adjust relief sounds to meet their individual needs and preferences with just the tap of a finger.
Speech Rescue LX works together with OpenSound Navigator™ and Speech Guard LX t to improve clarity and speech understanding for people with high frequency hearing loss. The three-step “copy and keep” methodology rescues speech cues that might otherwise be lost and brings them back into the audible frequency range. Speech Rescue LX then transmits the temporal cues of high-frequency speech and, at the same time, “protects” lower frequency speech sounds to achieve frequency lowering with minimal distortion.
Updated Firmware For The hearing Aids
A new firmware package with the newest features, including Speech Rescue and Tinnitus SoundSupport, will be made available through the Oticon Firmware Updater in Genie 2 software. The newest firmware package enables your hearing care professional to continue to add improved and new features, as they become available, to Oticon Opn hearing aids regardless of style or performance level.
