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 OpnS Hearing Aid

Oticon Opn Hearing Aid

In April, 2019, Oticon released the newest version of their Opn (pronounced “open”) hearing aid, the OpnS. The OpnS is an evolution of the Opn platform, which was released in 2016. The original Opn was a departure from traditional directionality, a sound processing strategy used by all other hearing aid manufacturers, which involves the hearing aid microphones fixing to the front-facing position to help people hear what they are looking at while reducing their ability to hear from beside or behind them. The Opn used a faster processing chip to analyze speech while reducing noise in all directions, resulting in a more natural listening experience, where the user was not limited to hearing only the person they were looking at.  

Compared to the Opn, the OpnS has a significantly improved feedback manager, allowing the hearing aids to be fit to a wider range of hearing losses without the risk of annoying whistling or chirping feedback. The OpnS also has a lithium-ion rechargeable version available, which lasts for a full day on a single charge.
