More Hearing Aids

Full balanced sound from Oticon More

Initially, the More will be available in just one rechargeable model across three technology levels, although we expect them to expand that pretty quickly. The rechargeable device, which many people really like, offers you a full day of use with just one three hour charge.  The devices are multi-connected wireless hearing aids, they are internet-enabled and Bluetooth enabled, both Made For iPhone and Made For Android.

Full sound scene

Deeper Access to Sound

Oticon has believed for many years that your brain needs broader access to your sound environment to help make sense of it. This is the basis of their Brain Hearing concept which has guided the development of their hearing aids for many years. While they made a fantastic breakthrough with the Opn, the new features in the More broaden that access to your surroundings. Their new, more powerful chipset allows them to give you the speech understanding that you need, while still allowing a very broad awareness and nuance to surrounding sound.

New Computer Brain

More will be powered by a brand new chipset they are calling Polaris which offers a huge jump in processing power. This jump in processor power allows them to offer more in-depth processing and provide a better experience. After scanning and analysing the sound scene 500 times per second to understand the complexity, the device organises the sounds around you to create contrast and balance between sounds. Oticon  says in comparison to the Velox S platform such as:

  • 16 times more capacity to execute advanced algorithms
  • Intelligent use of industry-leading 64-channel processing
  • Twice as much computation capacity and speed
  • Deep Neural Network processing
  • Double the precision in 1.5-5kHz frequency bands

12 Million Sound Scenes

12 Million Sound Scenes

Oticon says that they have used 12 million real-world sound scenes to train More's deep neural network so that the hearing aids can make better analysis and processing decisions instantaneously. That equates to a better experience no matter what sound environment you find yourself in.

Three Levels of Technology

The More rechargeable hearing aid will be available in three levels of technology, the More 1, the More 2 and the More 3. The beautiful MiniRITE devices can use four different receiver power levels meaning that they offer a discreet option for every hearing loss

Rechargeable Cell, Easily Replaced

One of the common concerns for users is the replacement of the lithium-ion battery in rechargeable hearing aids. Most rechargeable devices are graded to offer 80% of their battery life at year six so that gives them some comfort. Oticon went a step further, they made their rechargeable battery replaceable in the clinic. So if it needs to be replaced, it can be done at an in-clinic appointment rather than going back to the factory. A lot of users are really happy with that idea.

The Hearing Aid

As we said, the hearing aid is a rechargeable model, it is discrete, offers an easy to use multi-function push button and can be used for people with mild to severe to profound hearing loss thanks to the easy receiver replacement. As you can see below, it has a small LED that allows you to understand what the charge state is when it is in the charger.

Oticon Opn S Hearing Aids

Oticon Opn S Range

Oticon released the new Opn S platform in March 2019, initially the Opn S will be available in four models and three technology levels. The devices are internet enabled and Bluetooth enabled just like the previous and original Opn. Oticon has made the Opn S even better with new and upgraded features which build upon the original.

Oticon's Latest Most Advanced Premium Solution

Oticon Opn

Oticon's Opn range are so small they are practically invisible and come in a range of shades and bright colours. The internet-enabled Oticon Opn comes with a number of additional features because it can connect to devices via the internet and Bluetooth. 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.

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.

One open sound experience
Three levels of BrainHearing™ support

BrainHearing™ support is delivered by a unique combination of technologies working together to reduce listening effort and provide the brain with better conditions to perform in. The Oticon Opn range has now been expanded into three levels of technology, Level 1 which iod top of the range, level 2 and level 3. 

All three members 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. Oticon have not stopped at that though, they have also expanded the fitting range of the Opn devices and they can now fit even profound hearing losses.

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 Opn is available in a range of colours.

Five Opn Custom Hearing Aid Types

The new Opn customs will be available in five different In The Ear models at every technology level. That's an IIC. a CIC, an ITC, a Half Shell ITE and a Full Shell ITE. The last three in that list will be Made For iPhone hearing aids which will make many people happy. It makes Oticon only the second hearing aid brand to offer Made For iPhone custom hearing aids. Let's take a look at the devices.

Oticon

Opn Invisible In Canal (IIC)

Opn IIC hearing aid

They say "These ‘invisible’ hearing aids sit far enough in the ear canal that people won’t be able to see them. A thin plastic pin remains accessible, which you use to pull the hearing aids out again. Like all Oticon Opn hearing aids, the Invisible-In-the-Canal (IIC) style automatically adjusts to different sound environments – which means you don't have to touch them or change their settings during the day." The IIC will definitely not be Made For iPhone and in fact may not be wireless at all. Oticon have made some strides in the design of the device and they say it will be the smallest IIC ever. They reckon that it should physically fit 8 out of every 10 people. The devices appear to be powered with a size 10 battery.

Oticon

Opn Completely In Canal (CIC)

Oticon Opn CIC hearing aids

They say "These very discreet hearing aids sit completely inside the ear canal and are hard to see – though not entirely hidden. They have an optional control button." Again, the CIC devices will not be MFI enabled, however, I would expect them to be wireless enabled. That should mean that they will be compatible with Oticon's own wireless hearing aid accessories. The addition of an optional control button also gives CIC users the ability to manually control the aids, which is never a bad thing. The devices appear to be powered with a size 10 battery. Looking at the faceplate of the CICs, they could be a twin mic hearing aid, if so, they may well deliver the Open Sound

Oticon

Opn In The Canal (ITC)

Oticon Opn ITC hearing aid

They say " In-the-Canal (ITC) hearing aids can accommodate larger batteries and more advanced technologies such as Bluetooth® low energy technology. This is because they are larger and more visible than the two smaller types shown here: Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC) or Completely-In-the-Canal (CIC) hearing aids. With Bluetooth, ITC hearing aids can connect to other devices including smartphones, TVs, computers, music players and remote microphone accessories. You can make hands-free calls using your hearing aids, and listen to stereo audio and music wirelessly. The larger faceplate allows you to control them via the programme button or a volume wheel, and makes them easier to handle." This is an excellent hearing aid, it will be Made For iPhone and have access to their Connect Clip, while being pretty discreet. 

Oticon

Opn In The Ear Half Shell (ITE Half Shell)

Oticon Opn half shell in the ear hearing aid

They say "These in-the-ear hearing instruments fill up more of the visible part of the ear. They are easy to use, fully featured, and offer wireless connectivity." The half-shell offers the best of both worlds, a slightly easier to handle device that offers manual controls that still offers discretion. The half-shell device will be MFI enabled and have access to the Connect Clip, it should also offer the Open Sound. There is no word so far on whether they will be able to fit a telecoil in it though. While some aren't that interested in Loop systems, many love the telecoil once they have tried it out in a theatre or public place. 

Oticon

Opn In The Ear Full Shell (Full Shell)

Oticon Opn full shell custom hearing aids

They say "For people who prioritise an instrument that is extra easy to handle, control, and adjust. These in-the-ear hearing aids are fully featured and offer wireless connectivity." The full shell should offer a size 13 battery and I have little doubt that it has a telecoil on board as well as access to Oticon's own wireless accessories and a direct connection to iPhones. Again, with the twin-mics onboard the device should offer the Open Sound.

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

A World of Possibilities

Oticon Opn is 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 aids that someone is at your door then these are a few of the limitless possibilities available using ifttt. Oticon have introduced their own recipes that can be easily downloaded, however, it is easy to make new recipes for action.
