Oticon Opn 2 Hearing Aid Range

Opn Blue hearing aidOticon's latest mid-level hearing aid range has been received as well as the initial flagship device by both users and the professionals who fit them. As with the Opn 1, many people are very happy with the devices and what they do. Let's take a look at what models are currently available in the range and what is the technology inside. 

Oticon's Latest Mid Range Solution

Oticon expanded their new ground breaking hearing device range at the start of 2017. Like the Opn 1, the devices were groundbreaking for several reasons, not the least being they were internet enabled and they were Made For iPhone. The internet-enabled Oticon Opn 2 comes with a number of the same features as the Opn 1. 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. You can read about all of the latest digital hearing aids from Oticon here. You can read more about the best digital hearing aid brands here

Opn 2 Hearing Aids

As with the Opn 1, 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. 

Open Up A Closed World

With the original launch, Oticon introduced a brand new directionality strategy that they said made hearing in noise far easier than ever before. In essence they say that the hearing aids let you hear your whole sound environment while still allowing you to focus on speech. It is done in such a way that it doesn't cut you off from the surrounding sound like other hearing aids have done, hence, Open up a closed world. In this level of technology you get level 2 of all of the features responsible, so it is a reduced level of technology, but real info as to how much reduced isn't necessarily available. Anyone I speak to about the Opn 2 is pretty happy with performance though, so they seem to be pretty good devices. 

Open up a closed world

20%

Less listening effort – reducing the load on the brain in noisy environments

20%

More capacity to remember – freeing up mental resources, enabling the user to recall more in noisy environments

30%

Better speech understanding – even in the most noisy environments, without suppressing surrounding sounds through narrow directionality

The Opn 2 is the mid level technology in the Opn range. All three levels 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. This is Level 2 or Mid-Range technology.

Oticon Opn new fitting range

OpenSound Navigator

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.

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.

Oticon Opn is available in a compact, newly designed miniRITE that sits discreetly on the ear. Oticon Opn offers a wealth of new features and functionalities all incorporated in a sleek and modern 312 battery-based design. The Opnis available in a range of colours.

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, counseling advice and links to user instructions. The app is also where the connection to the IFTTT network happens.

A World of Possibilities

Oticon Opnis 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 aidsthat someone is at your door then these are a few of the limitless possiblities available using ifttt. Oticon have 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.
