Oticon Hearing Aids
Oticon was founded in 1904 by Hans Demant. His wife suffered from hearing loss, so empathy was a cornerstone of the company from its first days. An extension of the company’s inbuilt care, Oticon’s driving principle is “People First”. They consider this a promise, shaping their hearing solutions to empower people to live the life they want.
This ethos is in keeping with Leightons’ values, while their cutting-edge hearing care technology enables our expert audiologists to provide the best hearing solutions for your needs.
Oticon devices are fantastic at restoring natural sound, so you hear speech clearly. With their latest hearing aid, Oticon Opn, they have introduced BrainHearing™.
It is our brain, not our ears, that deciphers sounds, so this new technology is geared towards helping our brain make sense of the sounds we hear. As a result, there is a 20% reduction in listening effort so you don’t feel as tired at the end of the day.
A world of sound
Oticon have launched revolutionary new OpenSound Navigator™ technology with the Opn hearing aid. Traditional hearing aid technology uses directionality to shut out sounds, treating them as ‘noise’ to isolate a person speaking in front of you.
This approach means it’s easy to miss things around you. Instead, the Oticon Opn can balance every sound individually, analysing your environment more than 100 times per second. This makes background sounds more accessible without being distracting, to help you focus on what’s important to you.
Two are better than one
Two Oticon hearing aids work wirelessly as a pair to help orient your brain and accurately locate sounds around you, known as binaural processing.
For their Opn hearing aids, Oticon have also developed TwinLink™, which consists of two separate dedicated communication systems. One is for binaural processing, and one is a powerful direct streaming system for wireless connectivity with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or other devices. This technology makes it easy to use Oticon Opn hearing aids as a high quality headset without needing to use a separate streamer.
Gone are the days when you needed to fiddle with all the adjustments on your hearing aids. Oticon’s hearing aids are so advanced that they can adjust themselves. This means you can go about your day, in many different environments, and the hearing aids will adjust to the situation.
They’ll automatically adapt the volume and settings as you move from the quiet of your own home to the louder environment of the shops and help you keep up with the conversation over dinner with friends and family.
Have trouble with tinnitus? Many Oticon hearing aids have a simple but effective Tinnitus feature. You can choose between customisable sounds or an amplification setting to help tune out tinnitus and make it less noticeable.
The Oticon Opn is the world’s first internet-connected hearing aid. Working with the Oticon ON app, you can check the battery, switch programs and adjust volume all via your smartphone.
The app also connects your hearing aids to the Internet of Things using the IFTTT (If This Then That) service, linking it to virtually any device in your home with an internet connection. This allows you to easily create convenient linked actions, for example receiving an alert via your aids when the doorbell rings, and puts you completely in control of your world.
