Oticon: “People First”

Oticon was founded in 1904 by Hans Demant, whose wife was hard of hearing.  As a result Hans began importing and distributing hearing aids in Denmark.  In 1940, his son, William, manufactured the first Danish hearing device, and in 1946 partnered with American hearing aid producer, Charles Lehman, to found Oticon corporation with headquarters in Copenhagen.

Oticon is one of the leading hearing aid manufacturers, with innovative technologies for wireless connectivity and binaural coordination, and is one of the manufacturers of bone-anchored hearing aids.  Oticon’s philosophy is “to empower people to communicate freely, interact naturally and participate actively.”

Oticon Opn Hearing Aid

Oticon Opn Hearing Aid

On June 2, 2016 Oticon released their newest hearing aid called Opn (pronounced Open).  This hearing aid is different from what we have seen from other hearing aid manufacturers because it is processing speech in noise without using directionality.  In all other hearing aids, the microphones fix to the front facing position to help people hear what they are looking at in front of them.  Now, the Opn is using a faster processor to allow the brain to process what it wants to hear by analyzing speech and noise and attempting to reduce the noise in all directions.  As well, this hearing aid connects to the iPhone for easy adjustments and seamless streaming of audio inputs.  At Broadmead Hearing Clinic, we are excited about this new way of speech processing and have had great success with this product so far.
