With hearing aids from Oticon, our clients are able to hear speech clearly, even in environments with excessive noise or multiple speakers. The award-winning OPN hearing aid by Oticon analyzes the user’s environment 100 times per second and balances every sound individually to provide a spectacular “open-sound” experience. Speech sounds come through naturally and clear, and background sounds are audible but not disturbing.
The highlights of Oticon Opn
The difference between being in or out of life
Exciting new research reveals that as long as at least 50% of a conversation can be understood (the tipping point), participation in complex listening environments is possible, even if more effort is required. Research also shows that OpenSound Navigator™ shifts the tipping point in complex environments which enables users to reclaim situations once lost. What’s more, speech understanding is increased from 20% to 75% in noisy environments* helping to bring users back into the conversation.
OpenSound Navigator technology in Opn improves speech understanding and shifts the tipping point between isolation and participation, bringing users back into the conversation.
