Oticon Hearing Aids
Manufacturers / Oticon Hearing Aids
Oticon made its first in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid available to the public in 1977 and then its first digital hearing aids in 1996, building on a foundation of innovation first established in 1904 with the release of the world’s first electric hearing device (Acousticon).
After the Demant Group formed a partnership with American entrepreneur Charles Lehman to establish the American-Danish Oticon Corporation, the company became a leading hearing aid provider after World War II.
Oticon began to distinguish itself in the hearing aid industry early in the 21st century, thanks to the development of its Brain Hearing concept, which led to the production of hearing aids with streaming and connectivity features as early as 2007.

The Brain Hearing Concept and Opn Processing
The Brain Hearing concept is an approach used in the design and production of sound processing technology that augments the natural function of the brain to create meaning from sound and speech rather than just pushing amplified sound into the ear.
From Brain Hearing came Oticon’s Opn processing platform, which makes it possible for hearing aid wearers to easily distinguish between multiple speakers within a noisy environment, improving sound quality and voice clarity while also upgrading overall instrument performance.
Oticon’s Hearing Aids Features
- Connectivity with smartphones and other digital electronics or TV, also allowing for sound sharing between hearing aids to improve spatial awareness and enhanced clarity
- Streaming capabilities with Bluetooth® streaming applied to Oticon’s integrated sound generator to help with tinnitus management
- Preprogrammed sound environments to make it quicker and simpler for users to accommodate their unique needs and preferences as they move between locations
- Clear, transparent sound quality and speech details to boost your capacity to understand speech in multiple listening environments, thanks to Oticon’s sound preservation technology
- Dynamic range of expanded input features resulting in sound quality augmentation that helps eliminate distortion and whistling
- Remote fitting and counseling options to keep your hearing needs up-to-date without an in-office consultation via the Genie app

The Importance of Scheduling a Hearing Assessment
Because it is the beginning of identifying the type and severity of hearing loss in order to customize a plan of treatment or preventive measures, scheduling a hearing assessment is a critical step in receiving better hearing care.
Even when a measurable hearing loss is not detected during a hearing assessment, the results establish a baseline against which future deterioration can be measured.
To ensure your hearing health, do not delay having a hearing test. Take the first step on the journey to better hearing and a healthier life by scheduling a hearing assessment today.
