What are the different types of Oticon hearing instruments?
- Oticon Opn™
Oticon Opn™ is a new kind of hearing aid, one that empowers you, so you don’t have to work as hard anymore to understand the speech of the people speaking around you. Improving your ability to understand speech that you hear by up to 30%, Oticon Opn™ is, in fact, the very first hearing aid fast enough to support your brain. It represents a radical improvement over traditional hearing aids which are designed to isolate and amplify one speaker while suppressing all others. Oticon Opn™, powered by the groundbreaking Velox™ platform, provides you with easy sonic access to the people and sounds in your life and it even lets you listen to multiple speakers simultaneously in noisy environments, helping you focus on what’s important to hear for you. Because Oticon Opn™ can scan your sonic atmosphere 100x per second, it is so fast that it is able to help you seamlessly switch attention, if you choose, to another speaker or sound source, all the while providing you with the most immediate and accurate information about the 360º soundscape surrounding you. Now you can hear more and worry less with Oticon Opn™.
- Opn™ 1
For the ultimate performance in hearing devices, consider the Opn™ 1. As the first in the line of Opn™ hearing aids, the Opn™ 1 offers the highest level of noise reduction, sound processing, personalization and speech clarity. Your brain works up 20% less to listen and can remember up to 20% more. You will also understand speech up to 30% better.
- Opn™ 2
The Opn™ 2 is a mid-level device from Oticon for people who do not need the highest level of support to the brain. As with the Opn™ 1, you have access to all speakers, but noise reduction, sound localization, speech clarity and personalized experiences are slightly less with the Opn™ 2 compared to the Opn™ 1.
- Opn™ 3
The Opn™ 3 is a hearing device that is cost-effective and efficient, yet equally effective for those who need a reduced level of support for hearing. Users will gain better sound quality and a more natural, effortless hearing experience. You have access to all speakers, yet lower levels of speech improvement, sound localization, and noise reduction.
If you have severe or profound hearing loss, you know all too well that there’s a big difference between hearing sounds and making sense of them. Dynamo allows you to enjoy a more complete sound experience. With Dynamo your brain gets access to the fuller spectrum of sounds and lets you capture more speech details. Built on decades of hearing aid leadership, Dynamo is as reliable as it is powerful. You can count on it to keep working for you – 24 hours a day, in any weather, and no matter how active a lifestyle you lead – without annoying feedback.
ConnectClip turns your Oticon Opn hearing aid into a wireless stereo headset. It allows you to make hands-free phone calls – including video chatting – as well as stream music from your cell phone. The device also acts as a remote control for your hearing aid and allows you to listen to people from a distance with a remote microphone. The new technology makes it easier to hear in places that are typically noisy, like classrooms, sporting events, airports, and places of worship. ConnectClip is compatible with the iPhone and Android and can connect with services like Skype, Lync, and Facetime.

What to Expect during Your Oticon Consultation
During a consultation for Oticon hearing devices, you should expect your audiologist to begin with a comprehensive examination of the ear. This purpose of this examination is to determine the source of your hearing loss. The audiologist will consider the symptoms you have reported and use them to guide the consultation. Once the source of your hearing loss is identified, the audiologist will work with you to decide whether an Oticon hearing device will serve your particular needs.
