Did you know that nearly 1 out of ev­ery 4 adult Cana­dian re­ports hav­ing some hear­ing loss. Hear­ing loss is the third most preva­lent chronic con­di­tion in older adults and the most wide­spread dis­abil­ity. Its preva­lence rises with age – 46% of peo­ple aged 45 to 87 have hear­ing loss. Un­for­tu­nately, there are many peo­ple who need, but do not have, hear­ing aids. There are nu­mer­ous rea­sons for not do­ing any­thing about one’s hear­ing loss. Some peo­ple sim­ply don’t know they have a hear­ing loss. Oth­ers know they have a hear­ing loss but are in de­nial. Some in­di­vid­u­als pri­or­i­tize their hear­ing loss lower than other is­sues they face, and some worry about the cost of hear­ing de­vices. Fi­nally, some peo­ple have worn them in the past but have given up be­cause the hear­ing aids didn’t work the way they ex­pected, es­pe­cially in noise.

If this sounds fa­mil­iar, a so­lu­tion ex­ists for you. Come visit us at our Open House. A com­pli­men­tary hear­ing screen­ing is pro­vided for all at­ten­dees. Auburn and Moun­tain Hear­ing Cen­tres’ Doc­tor of Au­di­ol­ogy and a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Oti­con Canada, one of the World’s lead­ers in hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy, will be present to demon­strate the lat­est tech­nol­ogy avail­able.

“Oti­con Opn, is the first hear­ing aid proven to make it eas­ier on the brain,” says Kelly Lebel, Au­di­ol­ogy and Train­ing Man­ager at Oti­con. “Pre­lim­i­nary test­ing shows that Opn in­creases speech un­der­stand­ing, which is the pa­ram­e­ter most im­por­tant to hear­ing aid wear­ers, by 30%. Peo­ple who wear Opn also ex­pe­ri­ence 20% less lis­ten­ing ef­fort when try­ing to un­der­stand speech, and be­cause they use up less en­ergy try­ing to un­der­stand, they are able to re­mem­ber 20% more of what was said.”

In ad­di­tion, if you have worn hear­ing aids in the past and still had dif­fi­culty hear­ing in noise, the Opn might be the hear­ing aid for you. The most chal­leng­ing so­cial sit­u­a­tion for peo­ple with hear­ing loss is din­ing out with friends where mul­ti­ple speak­ers and restau­rant back­ground noise com­pete for at­ten­tion. Un­til now, hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy, has ad­dressed this prob­lem by clos­ing down sounds and fo­cus­ing on one speaker only, using the tra­di­tional di­rec­tion­al­ity. With the com­pletely new Velox™ plat­form, Oti­con has made di­rec­tion­al­ity as we know it a thing of the past. Hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy takes a quan­tum leap for­ward with this ground­break­ing sound pro­cess­ing plat­form that is so fast it en­ables users to fol­low rapidly chang­ing con­ver­sa­tions in­volv­ing sev­eral speak­ers.

These pre­mium hear­ing aids are avail­able at the open house along with a Man­u­fac­tur­ers re­bate. In ad­di­tion to the spec­tac­u­lar sav­ings, re­ceive a free gift with your pur­chase. We deal with all In­sur­ance plans, WSIB, DVA, ODSP and Spe­cial In­come. Park­ing is free. Why trust your hear­ing to any­one else.
