Oticon recently released the Oticon OPN, the manufacturer’s latest commitment to enhancing the user’s ability to hear with less effort and better speech understanding is truly groundbreaking in the healthy hearing industry.
This newest form of Brainhearing technology focuses on the main sounds and decreases the volume of background noise by scanning the user’s surrounding 100 times per second to analyze and balance each individual sound. This allows the user to understand the speech in front of them while also making environmental sounds accessible, but not disturbing.
By analyzing and processing sound data 50 times faster than ever before, this tiny chip supports the brain’s ability to better understand sound. A study showed that OPN users requires 20% less listening effort when trying to understand speech. This allowed the users to remember 20% more of the conversation because they were focused on what was being said instead of trying to listen.
The Oticon ON app also allows users to discreetly control their hearing aid. By connecting to the internet using IFTTT.com, users are able to control an array of different household devices such as door bells, baby monitors and thermostats.
