Latest Hearing Aids from Oticon
Oticon Opn and Opn S
Traditional hearing aids isolate one speaker and suppress all others. Opn and Opn S are so fast, they can wearers access to multiple speakers around them that they want to listen to and help reduce noise at the same time. Oticon Opn S takes open sound to the next level, providing more flexibility and choices for users. It delivers the clearest and purest possible signal yet to provide speech understanding on par with normal hearing in noisy environments – empowering Opn wearers to participate in the same social situations as everyone else. The new Velox S platform supports key technologies proven to deliver better hearing with less effort.
For many years, researchers in the field of hearing have acknowledged that hearing occurs in the brain. The human ear receives sound waves, amplifies them, and inner ear hair cells translate them into neural signals sent to the brain. With normal hearing, a robust, clear signal is registered and catalogued by the brain as sounds that we recognize. Daily sounds, such as a dog’s bark, a gust of wind, the slam of a door, are all learned and archived audio data that have followed this auditory process.
When hearing begins to change, the signals sent to the brain are no longer as clear and strong. As a result, the brain receives gaps in the transmission and therefore struggles to fill in the signals to make sense of the inconsistencies.
Oticon’s BrainHearing Technology was developed to address these inconsistencies and to assist the brain in making sense of the signals we consistently receive. BrainHearing Technology simulates the experience of binaural hearing for the brain, by taking sounds from both ears to acclimatize the wearer to their environment, while also sorting through competing noise. Along with other technology developed by Oticon, which will be explored below, BrainHearing Technology paves the way for more ground-breaking technology in hearing aids.
As Oticon’s economical line, Siya hearing aids help people hear better by amplifying the rich details of sound, so they can focus in on every precious moment. Siya hearing aids feature BrainHearing technology which helps the brain understand sounds more easily.
