Oticon Opn™ Opens Up Your Field of Hearing

Historically, hearing aids have dealt with the problem of sound coming from multiple directions by filtering out certain sounds in favor of other, more important ones. Unfortunately, given how the brain processes sound, this can prove to be problematic. A great deal of your dynamic experience of sound is tied to the context that comes with contrasting inputs. This means that simply eliminating sounds can affect the natural flow of sound processing and result in a far less detailed auditory image of the environment.

This is one of the reasons why the Opn™ line of hearing aids represents such a fundamental leap forward. Rather than filtering out some sounds and leaving others behind, it works with and facilitates the brain’s normal modes by allowing it to follow and process several sound sources all at the same time. The enhanced sound experience is tied to two different resources developed by the Oticon team: OpenSound Navigator and Spatial Sound LX. The former is capable of scanning the environment for sound inputs an impressive 100 times per second. It can then create a balanced auditory landscape out of this incredible store of real-time information.

Speed Process

The ability of the Oticon Opn™ to deliver a more sophisticated sound landscape in a more efficient way is powered in large part by their Velox platform. Five years in the making, this ultra-fast chip delivers an unparalleled level of speed. It’s the extreme speed of the Velox that enables this hearing aid to analyze several noise sources at once and process them into one coherent, detailed picture of the environment. Processing data at 50 times the speed of its closest competitor, the Oticon Opn™ represents a giant leap forward in hearing care.

Online Use

Aside from its advanced performance, the Oticon Opn™ was the first hearing aid to feature a fully integrated internet connectivity. This has opened up new areas of functionality for hearing aids. Currently, the device’s connectivity can be used to link it to household items, such as doorbells, baby monitors, and thermostats. For example, the user would hear a soft ping in their hearing aid to let them know there is someone at the front door. This kind of functionality is just the tip of the iceberg. As more services and products that are compatible with the device and its network become available, there will be more possibilities to stay connected to the world around you.
