Oticon Opn™ Now Connects to All Modern Smartphones

On 15, Nov 2017 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

Oticon Opn™ was released in 2016, claimed to be the world’s first internet-connected hearing aid. The Oticon Opn™ has been available for iPhone users since it’s release and has now also been made available for all modern Android smartphones.

Powered by modern 2.4 GHz Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, Oticon Opn™ streams sound effortlessly to both hearing aids from a bluetooth-enabled smartphone (2010 onwards). The Oticon Opn™ app is free to download for iPhone and Android users.
 


 

Seamless listening

The Oticon Opn™ quickly and precisely analyses the listeners soundscape and differentiates between environmental and foreground sounds. Even in complex listening environments, Otion Opn™ can open up and balance individual sounds allowing environmental noise to be accessible but not disruptive, empowering the brain to choose which sound to focus on. Directionality as we know it, has become a thing of the past.

 

Reducing cognitive load

In tests, the Oticon Opn™ has been shown to reduce cognitive load on the brain, measuring 20% less listening effort when trying to understand speech.  Tests have also shown that the reduced listening effort has actually freed up brain capacity, resulting in listeners remembering 20% more of their conversion.

For maximum discretion and convenience, you can control your hearing aids with the Oticon ON App or a remote control, connect to the Internet of Things and much more.
