Oticon hearing aids have long been able to amplify for a wide range of hearing losses from mild to profound, and they have good consistent sound quality. Oticon hearing aids have been around for over 115 years and pride themselves on the quality and reliability of their hearing aids. Oticon is one of the hearing aid brands owned by their parent company, Demant, based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
An enriched surround sound experience. While many manufacturers narrow down on the speaker’s direction (using directional microphones), recent Oticon hearing aids have aimed to retain more information from the sound scene for a more open sound experience. Oticon released Opn in 2016 and Opn S in 2018. These hearing aids prioritised speech sounds, no matter which direction the speaker is in. The goal is that the brain is provided with enough information to feel part of the environment while the hearing aids prioritize speech sounds from any direction.
Replaceable rechargeable batteries. The Oticon lithium-ion battery system is designed so your Audiologist can replace the batteries in the clinic. All other brands have integrated lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, which need to be sent in for a repair/replacement if the batteries need changing.
Easy to use remote care available. This means your Audiologist can adjust your hearing aids from anywhere, as long as your hearing aids are connected to your mobile phone.
In addition, Oticon hearing aids have a weatherproofing (dust/water) standard of IP68. This means they are more resistant to wear and tear than previous hearing aids, especially those with single-use batteries.
