Founded in 1904, Oticon is a Danish hearing aid manufacturer with the mission “People first.” For over a century now, Oticon has dedicated their research, development and design to technology that is life-changing for their users. In conjunction with the Ericksholm Research Centre, Oticon conducts individual in-depth interviews and focus groups to receive feedback and determine their next inventions, in order to produce hearing devices that improve the lives of people with hearing loss worldwide.

Introducing the new “Opn”

Oticon is proud to present the new Opn hearing aid with improved features and functionality. The Opn offers wearers 20% reduction in listening effort in noisy environments, 20% more capacity to remember in these challenging situations, and 30% better speech understanding and clarity in noise. With Oticon’s already powerful hearing aids as a foundation, the Opn builds upon Oticon’s previous successes and innovations to provide wearers with a truly groundbreaking listening experience, with better accessibility and seamlessness. The new Oticon Opn is available in a discreet, mini receiver-in-canal style.

Velox Processing Platform

The new Velox platform, fast and precise, is equipped with an “open sound” solution. Velox empowers wearers by delineating audio signals in the most challenging sound environments, allowing them to choose where to focus and what sounds to hear, among multiple conversations and background noise.

Velox is powered by a tiny processing chip that runs at a high speed to manage the many sound sources taken in by Opn. Velox processes sounds 50 times faster than previous Oticon models, with a 64-band frequency resolution to give more precise sound analysis and better sound quality, all of which assist the brain’s hearing process with clearer, more immediate signals.

Improving on BrainHearing

Building upon the advanced technology of BrainHearing, Opn hearing aids provide wearers with a clearer sound signal that better assists the brain as it makes sense of sound. Unlike traditional hearing aids which focus on specific sounds and suppress others, Oticon’s Opn provides wearers with a fuller spectrum of sound in their environment, allowing them to listening simultaneously to environmental sounds while honing in focus on the sounds they want to hear. This is the basis for open sound: more inclusivity for a more natural listening experience, without sacrificing quality. As such, Opn provides a more natural listening experience for the brain, freeing up mental resources. According to Opn users, “they are able to remember 20% more of what is said.”

OpenSound Navigator Environmental Analyzer

Opn is equipped with a new feature, the OpenSound Navigator Environmental Analyzer, which scans your current listening environment 100 times we second to take in, analyze, and balance every sound. This provides wearers of Opn with an enriched sound picture, connecting people fully to their environments. The OpenSound Navigator also empowers wearers to focus on the sounds they want to hear in their environment, while background environment noise functions as a way to situate wearers within their environment, rather than disturb their listening process. From Oticon, “Users can now follow the sounds they want to hear and shift attention when desired. Surrounding sounds are available, but not intrusive so users can focus on the sounds they want to hear, even in noisy situations.”

TwinLink

Opn boasts TwinLink technology, two wireless communication systems in one hearing aid. Powered with a near-field magnetic communication (NFMI), Opn simulates natural binaural hearing. With NFMI, wearers experience a higher quality of sound, regardless of the listening environment. Additionally, with a Bluetooth direct streaming communication to smartphones and other devices, user accessibility is heightened, delivering conversations, music, and other media directly to the hearing aid. TwinLink technology requires low battery consumption while allowing users more discretion in controlling their hearing aid preferences, for a more confident listening experience.

The World’s First Internet Connected Hearing Aid

In recent years, hearing aids have advanced to connect to smartphones and personal electronic devices. But Oticon’s Opn is the world’s first hearing aid that connects directly to the Internet. Through the web service If This Then that (IFTTT.com), Opn allows wearers to connect to IFTTT services used in everyday life, such as doorbells and baby monitors. This groundbreaking technology ensures that wearers will have access to all the sounds in their life, in a convenient and effortless way.
