Oticon is one of the top 3 hearing aid brands, they are a Danish company and only one of the many hearing technology-related businesses owned by the company William Demant Holdings. The company was originally founded by Hans Demant in 1904, Demant had a passion to help his wife, who had hearing loss, to lead a better life.
In recent years Oticon has focused on a concept that they call Brain Hearing. The idea is to innovate with new features that provide amplification in the best manner possible to stimulate and support the Brain's natural abilities. Oticon has just introduced their latest device which they call the Opn, it has been universally well received by both users and hearing care professionals. The Opn range is currently a Receiver In Canal and Behind The Ear range of hearing aids, they have not released Opn custom hearing devices so far.
Oticon has just introduced a new groundbreaking hearing device range. They are so small they are practically invisible but they also come in a range of shades and bright colors. The internet-enabled Oticon Opn comes with a number of additional features because it can connect to devices via the internet and Bluetooth. The hearing aids will connect directly to your Smartphone so you can make phone calls and listen to music without any intermediate streaming device. They are also water resistant to 1m.
The devices can be connected to any device that has a Bluetooth connection. This means that the hearing aids can also be connected to things like doorbells, appliances, or even baby monitors. Then when the doorbell rings, for example, the person gets a small 'ring' in their ear to let them know. This is the premium hearing aid in Oticon’s range which uses their new Velox Sense processing chip. This range is a completely new way of processing sound and is suitable for more demanding listening environments.
Oticon Opn™ introduces groundbreaking technology that is fast enough to support the brain. With precision and accuracy, it analyzes the acoustic environment and differentiates between the individual sounds. The result is a significant improvement in the ability to understand speech in complex environments while, at the same time, preserving mental energy – ultimately empowering users to Open Up to the World. Users are provided with more accurate information making it easier to locate and separate sound sources so they can focus on what they find important. This happens so quickly it facilitates the listener’s ability to change focus when desired. The system gives you 360 degree sound while still ensuring the background does not overwhelm the speech you want to hear. Changing Hearing aids forever, from closing your world to opening it up again
BrainHearing™ support is delivered by a unique combination of technologies working together to reduce listening effort and provide the brain with better conditions to perform in. The Oticon Opn range has now been expanded into three levels of technology, Level 1 which is top of the range, level 2 and level 3.
All three members of the Oticon Opn™ family provide the open sound experience that is proving so popular. However, each model gives the brain a different level of assistance – a different level of BrainHearing™ support. Oticon has not stopped at that though, they have also expanded the fitting range of the Opn devices and they can now fit even profound hearing losses.

The ConnectClip will allow you to stream the sound from any modern smartphone, tablet or computer directly into your hearing aids. Low energy use and a microphone for capturing your speech make your hearing aids into a wireless headset with all the benefits that come with the hands-free experience.
High-quality audio capability lets you stream stereo music from any of your devices straight into your ears. A richer sound with more details delivers a quality experience that is less strenuous to listen to.
Not satisfied with delivering an outstanding streaming audio experience, Oticon went a step further. The ConnectClip also functions as a remote microphone, which means you can give it to someone who is speaking and then hear their voice clearly and directly in your hearing aids. Ideal to help you hear better in more complex situations.
Yep, streaming audio and remote microphone just wasn't enough, so they added a remote control functionality as well. You can use your ConnectClip as a remote control. That means that you can control the volume of your Opn hearing aids, switch programmes, and turn them on and off remotely.
