About Oticon Hearing Aids
At the heart of Oticon hearing aids is BrainHearing, a new technology that assists the brain in hearing. Based on the science that your brain hears – not your ears – Oticon’s BrainHearing technology consists of four main features to provide a clearer signal to the brain to process as sound, help wearers organize sounds and orient themselves in their surroundings, to better understand speech, and to hear better in challenging noise environments.
Spatial Sound and Free Focus allow wearers to locate sources of sound and zoom in on what they want to hear. These two features support the brain’s natural ability to sense where sounds come from and in turn, determine where wearers want to focus their attention.
Speech Guard E provides wearers with improved speech recognition, even in noisy environments and in difficult listening situations, such as cross conversation with multiple speakers. The YouMatic feature allows wearers to personalize their hearing aids to their specific needs.
Oticon hearing aids are powered with the Inium Platform and provide wireless connectivity to telephones, TVs and remote microphones. With the ConnectLine wireless system, wearers are able to stream mobile phone calls directly to their Oticon hearing aids, as well as video chats, music, and media. Inium Sense provides feedback management to eliminate whistling and buzzing. Oticon hearing aids are powered with long-battery life.
