Oticon Opn Hearing Aids Delivers an Open Sound Experience for Wearers

On 20, May 2016 | In Product | By Jerusha Shulberg

With Oticon’s launch of Oticon Opn™, hearing aid treatment technology has taken a giant leap forward in favour of the end‐user.

Traditionally hearing aid technologies close down environmental sounds using tunnel directionality. Speech coming from the front is clear, while the rest of the sound environment is suppressed, limiting the brain of the context needed to make sense of sound.

With new, ground breaking technology from Oticon, the Oticon Opn™ quickly and precisely analyses the 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.

Which will it be? Dementia, or hearing better than a normal-hearing person

In my work, I keep track of technology developments across a variety of fields to try to better anticipate what the future might be like (especially for media and news). Since getting hearing aids about a year and a half ago, and becoming a contributor to this blog, I’ve (of course) included advancements in hearing technology as well as hearing medicine and research to my scanning routine.

Lately, there’s been a lot of activity in the “hearing” space, both positive and worrying. (Since I am, for the most part, a technology optimist, I believe — and hope — that a positive hearing future is more likely.)
