Reviews and features
The Oticon range of hearing aids encompasses a wide variety of products that cater to various degrees of hearing loss and other hearing-related issues. Their performance line features three different hearing aids all based on the updated Inium Sense platform. These are called the Oticon Alta 2 pro, the Oticon Nera 2 pro, and the Oticon Ria 2 pro. The Oticon Ino and Oticon Get are hearing aid solutions designed for those who are cost-conscious. These hearing aids deliver the fundamental features and technology of high-end devices in a cost-effective package.
The Performance Line
These three hearing aids all have their own unique features and specialties. That said, there are certain aspects that are common to all three. Each one is designed to be ultra discreet. Additionally, the BrainHearing technology incorporated in each hearing aid is developed around the understanding that successful hearing begins in the brain. This is why Oticon aims, with the creation of both the Inium sense platform and their Performance Line, to provide a variety of additional health benefits, including enhanced cognitive function.
Oticon Alta 2 pro
The Alta 2 pro range is the premium option when it comes to Performance Line. Incorporating the latest version of the Inium processing chip, its external appearance is designed to minimize its visual presence and make its use as unobtrusive as possible. The device features an onboard AI that interprets and adapts to the variety of different sound environments busy people encounter on daily basis. The Alta 2 pro also features several programs that allow it to be adapted manually for optimum performance in specific environments. For instance, if you find yourself in environments where there is a lot of music than say, the a busy restaurant with a lot of background chatter, you can have a program tailored to optimize your sound experience at a moment’s notice. Additionally, its use of Tristate noise management boosts its ability to aid in speech comprehension and cut down on the amount of listening effort required.
Oticon Nera 2 pro
The Oticon Nera 2 pro is the medium level model for the Oticon Performance Line. It has an advanced internal AI that, while not as sophisticated as the one found in the Alta 2, is still capable of developing a high resolution picture of the listening environment. The Nera 2 also boasts an impressive ability to help users zero in on a given sound's location. It also allows users to focus in on the sounds that are relevant. Soft Speech Booster is an additional technology developed by Oticon and designed to make it easier to understand soft speech sounds that can be easily missed in an active conversation. YouMatic technology also allows individuals to create a personalized profile that will allow the internal AI to better understand how you wish to perceive sounds in your environment. This unique advancement in the way feedback is exchanged between both user and device makes for an unprecedented level of customization.
Oticon Ria 2 pro
The Oticon Ria 2 pro is the most basic of the three pro models in the Oticon Performance Line. While it still provides many of the same features found in the previously mentioned hearing aids, such as the Youmatic customizable platform, it offers a different level of sophistication when it comes to noise management, sound location, and soft sound interpretation. The Ria 2 pro still provides an excellent listening experience and many of the advanced features of the Performance line at a lower cost.
People put off getting a hearing aid for many reasons. One of the primary concerns can be the high cost of premium quality hearing aids. The aim of the Oticon Get is to deliver the main benefits and features of a top tier Oticon hearing aid in a more cost-conscious format. Oticon does away with some of the optional features of the premium versions and instead focuses on delivering a solid and dependable hearing aid that still delivers an exceptional level of sound quality and noise management. The Get incorporates advanced Oticon technologies such as Open Ear Acoustics, which is designed to keep the ear canal open and create a more natural-sounding amplification. Another feature is the Dynamic Feedback Cancellation, which counteracts the feedback noise that can affect many lower quality hearing aids. The result is an excellent final product that is a great choice for those new to the hearing aid market. It allows people to test the waters and experience the everyday benefits of wearing hearing aids.
The Ino is another cost-effective product that still provides a listening experience based on the latest technology. Unique features of the Ino include a Manual Adaption Manager, which allows people new to hearing aids to easily transition to a new sense of hearing. Those who have been dealing with untreated hearing loss for a significant period of time can feel a little disoriented by the sudden return of your ability to hear. The Manual Adaption Manager enables users to easily adjust the settings over time until they find the level of amplification that is perfect for their unique situation. The Ino also boasts an impressive bandwidth, capable of dealing with a wide spectrum of sounds.
