New age of hear­ing tech­nol­ogy has ar­rived

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

If you have a hear­ing loss and you have been keep­ing up with news on the lat­est and most ad­vanced hear­ing aids, you have no doubt heard of the Oti­con OPNTM.

The re­sponse to these rev­o­lu­tion­ary hear­ing aids has been phe­nom­e­nal.

Peo­ple are re­port­ing a very nat­u­ral sound qual­ity and hear­ing in group sit­u­a­tions is su­pe­rior to any other de­vices they have used be­fore. This is all thanks to the all-new Velox plat­form which runs the Oti­con OPNTM, al­low­ing pro­cess­ing speeds 50 times faster than the out­go­ing tech­nol­ogy.

Oti­con Opn™ has been hailed a suc­cess by both con­sumers and au­di­ol­o­gists in the re­sults of two sep­a­rate sur­veys pub­lished in Jan­uary. Now there is even more good news!

The Oti­con OPNTM fam­ily has ex­panded and now in­cludes three lev­els of tech­nol­ogy at three dif­fer­ent price points. Mean­ing that those who could not af­ford, or did not re­quire the full high spec­i­fi­ca­tion level of the orig­i­nally re­leased Oti­con Opn1, can still ben­e­fit from the sound qual­ity and over­all clar­ity of the all new Velox chip, which drives the tech­nol­ogy. This is now also avail­able in the Opn2 and Opn3 which sit at lower price points.

“We have been pleas­antly sur­prised by the over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive re­sponse to the Oti­con Opn1. It has truly lived up to all the hype. With the in­tro­duc­tion of Opn2 and Opn3 we are able to of­fer the im­proved sound qual­ity and pro­cess­ing to an in­creas­ing num­ber of hear­ing im­paired in­di­vid­u­als” Mr Ben Wood, Se­nior Au­di­ol­o­gist Hearclear Au­di­ol­ogy

Oti­con OPNTM has be­come a new bench­mark in hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy, it is the first de­vice in decades to move away from the tra­di­tional directiona­l mi­cro­phone as a way of sup­press­ing un­wanted back­ground noise. In­stead the OPNTM is able to scan the en­vi­ron­ment 360° over 100 times per sec­ond, then at­ten­u­ate in­di­vid­ual un­wanted noise sources and bal­ance sounds. This cre­ates an “open” sound ex­pe­ri­ence for users and over­comes the “tun­nelling” side ef­fect as­so­ci­ated with tra­di­tional directiona­l mi­cro­phone beam tech­nol­ogy.

“We’ve had the op­por­tu­nity to trial the tech­nol­ogy with a num­ber of hear­ing im­paired peo­ple, some who have worn hear­ing aids pre­vi­ously and also with first time hear­ing aid users. Peo­ple are com­ment­ing on the sound qual­ity of the hear­ing aids and their abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate in all en­vi­ron­ments,” se­nior au­di­ol­o­gist, Ben Wood said.

OLD TECH­NOL­OGY: In noisy en­vi­ron­ments, the lim­i­ta­tions of tra­di­tional hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy has led to the use of nar­row di­rec­tion­al­ity to make speech com­ing from the front clear. All other sounds are sup­pressed.

NEW TECH­NOL­OGY: Oti­con Opn is fast and pre­cise enough to open up the sound­scape and em­brace all rel­e­vant sounds – the open sound ex­pe­ri­ence.
