Oticon – MORE!
Today Oticon, one of the worlds leaders in hearing care, launched their NEW hearing aid and Sight & Sound, Bognor were extremely excited to attend their virtual launch. So what did the new product have to offer, here are some of the highlights. A world-first solution that makes it possible to give hearing aid users access to all relevant sounds, not only speech.
Less is not enough for your brain
Have you ever thought it would be great to hear more of what’s going on around you? This is not possible with traditional hearing aids because they’re designed to focus solely on
speech coming from in front of you. But that’s not an ideal way to treat hearing loss.
With such a limited sound scene, it becomes difficult to follow conversations. And it’s almost impossible to hear background sounds – which are vital to hearing naturally. Most importantly,
a limited sound scene prevents your brain from getting the sound information it needs.
Your brain needs access to more
The sound scene around you is constantly changing in unpredictable ways – everywhere you go. And it contains far more richness than just speech. So your brain has evolved to handle all this complexity and create meaning from it.
At Oticon, they focus on understanding the brain better and develop technology that supports it. New research tells us the brain needs access to the full sound scene to naturally make sense of sounds.
Oticon More allows you to experience the full sound scene in all its richness
Oticon More embodies our BrainHearing™ philosophy. This means it supports your brain by giving it access to the full sound scene.
Our most intelligent microchip ever – Polaris™ – enables Oticon More to use a ground breaking new technology: a Deep Neural Network (DNN).
This mimics how the brain works and has learned to recognize all kinds of sounds in fine detail – so it knows how they should ideally sound. The result is a more natural representation of all sounds in a clear, complete, and balanced sound scene – so you get more from every listening situation.
Proven to make it much easier for your brain
Through testing, Oticon tells us that the More makes sounds up to 60% clearer inside the brain. This shows precisely how much easier it becomes to hear the sounds around you.
In fact, when compared to their best hearing aid until now (Opn S), you will hear and understand 15% more of what’s being said, which will help you remember more of it later.
Connectivity and rechargeable
The hearing aid is also the first from Oticon that now offers connectivity to not only iPhone but Android phones, allowing patients the ability to enjoy taking calls, streaming music all through their hearing aids.
The More is also rechargeable, this isn’t something strictly new as most hearing aids and manufacturers offer something similar. However, when your listening to your favourite track or in the middle of a call it definitely helps to know you have the power available to keep on going.
At Sight & Sound, Bognor we are very excited about this new product and for anyone with experience of previous Oticon technology we are expecting some great reviews. If you haven’t experienced what Oticon products are capable of then you really are missing out.
So if you want to find out more about the More! (no pun intended) call Sight & Sound, Bognor on 01243 823144 or book an appointment on our website www.sightandsound.org.uk
