Now in three performance levels
Oticon Opn can now open up the world to more people and help a broad range of hearing loss, from mild to profound. All levels offer the same incredible hearing technology, including Tinnitus SoundSupport™ as standard.
The Oticon Opn family of hearing aids consists of three performance levels: Opn 1, Opn 2 and Opn 3. These performance levels offer different amounts of support to your brain with tasks such as locating sounds and clarifying speech, depending upon your individual hearing requirements.
You won’t miss a thing
Oticon Opn uses OpenSound Navigator™ technology. It analyses all sounds around you at more than 100 times per second to balance every sound individually. It even removes noise between words. This makes background sound accessible but not distracting, so you can focus on a conversation but not miss things around you, even in complex sound environments.
Conventional hearing aid technology tends to treat other sounds as noise, closing them down to help isolate a person speaking in front of you. The new Opn hearing aids instead put you in control, using an ultra-fast processor that works 50 times faster than the previous generation to help you locate sounds and focus on what is important to you.
Hear better with less effort
Oticon Opn hearing aids are focused on the fact that we hear with our brains, not with our ears. If your brain doesn’t receive the right sounds, it uses a great deal of effort to fill in the gaps and create meaning.
Good hearing is not just about making sounds louder, it’s about helping your brain to make sense of the sounds around you, which is why the Oticon Opn uses BrainHearing™ technology.
- 20% reduction in listening effort
- Frees up mental resource to remember 20% more
- 30% better speech understanding in complex noise environments
Oticon Opn features two dedicated communication systems, working together to keep you connected, known as TwinLink™.
One system is for binaural processing, allowing a pair of hearing aids to work together to deliver the most precise possible spatial information. This helps your brain with orienting and means you can more accurately locate sounds around you.
The second system is a powerful 2.4 GHz direct streaming system for wireless connectivity with all your devices. The Oticon Opn is a Made for iPhone® hearing aid and can connect to your tablet, smartphone, radio, TV or laptop to act as a high quality headset. This means you can now stream music or even phone calls directly to your hearing aid without the need for fitting software or a separate streamer.
The Oticon ON app connects to your Opn hearing aids to let you adjust volume, check the battery and switch programs all via your smartphone. There’s even a handy “find my hearing aids” feature and built-in tinnitus relief.
As well as giving you direct control of your hearing aids, Oticon ON also harnesses the power of the Internet of Things via IFTTT (If This Then That). IFTTT is an internet-based service that enables you to set a linked action for something you do. For example, you can receive a notification via your hearing aid when the doorbell rings, or an alert for an event in your calendar. You can even control lighting, appliances and virtually any other home device with an internet connection.
Made to live life to the full
Oticon Opn is a mini RITE (Receiver In The Ear) hearing aid that is packed with a huge number of innovative features yet is compact and discreet. It is available in a choice of 8 colours, so you can choose to wear a subtle skin tone or a flash of colour to fit with your style.
The Opn has an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, so you can carry on with all the activities you love without worrying about your aids being damaged by sweat or rain – although they’re not waterproof so remove them before jumping into the swimming pool!
Oticon Opn is only available in the UK via independent hearing care practitioners.
