Oticon introduces New hearing aid platform
Oticon Increases Processing Power of BrainHearing Technologies for More Natural Listening with Less Effort
New hearing aid range delivers up to 20% better soft speech understanding.
Inium Sense brings improved processing power to BrainHearing™ technologies for better performance and improved personalization. Oticon, Inc. has introduced the Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2 hearing aids, the latest hearing solutions in the Performance Line families and the first to be powered by Oticon’s new Inium Sense Platform.
The new even more sophisticated sound processor increases the processing power of Oticon’s proven BrainHearing™ technologies by 30% to deliver the purest possible sound signal for the brain to decode. The result is a more natural listening experience with less effort. Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2, are available in a wide range of styles including a smaller design for their very popular minRITE style. RITE and miniRITE styles can also now be fit with a more powerful receiver mold option, which increases the fitting range of these more discreet styles to meet the needs of more patients.
Better Soft Speech Intelligibility & A Tinnitus Feature
Oticon also focused on soft sounds in speech to boost intelligibility, something that Widex has been doing for years. The powerful Inium Sense feedback shield and Voice Aligned Compression (VAC+) with Soft Speech Booster gives up to 20% improvement in soft speech understanding and an enhanced ability to hear soft speech without turning up the volume when compared to their older hearing aids. Alta2 Pro, Nera2 Pro and Ria2 Pro are available with Oticon’s Tinnitus SoundSupport™. Oticon also introduced a new tinnitus feature called Tinnitus SoundSupport™, available in select Performance Line solutions to provide a personalized solution for patients living with tinnitus. Tinnitus SoundSupport™ has been developed to meet your tinnitus management goals.
What Oticon Had To Say
Better performance, improved personalization, more satisfaction
Inium Sense introduces a range of next generation BrainHearing technology benefits. The new Voice Aligned Compression (VAC+) fitting rationale with Soft Speech Booster improves the audibility of soft sounds. Inium Sense solutions factor in more patient sound preferences, such as soft sound perception, to provide a better, more personalised first-time fit and less fine-tuning to facilitate patient acceptance and long-term satisfaction.
The integrated Tinnitus SoundSupport with user-friendly fitting software enables practitioners to customize settings to patients’ needs. Built-in ocean and broadband sounds help ease the effects of tinnitus. More sounds can be accessed through the new Oticon Tinnitus App, available for free download on the App Store.
The Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2 hearing aids are available in styles and price points to suit a wide range of needs and preferences. Oticon introduced a new miniRITE style which features a more compact and discreet design with an easy-to-feel push button. As before, all BTE and RITE style devices in the hearing aid families are designed to withstand active lifestyles and are IP58 classified, demonstrating a high degree of water resistance.
