The OPN S is the latest release from Oticon. This hearing aid takes all the exciting features of the award-winning OPN hearing aid to a whole new level. With advancements in technology, your experience in a 360° listening environment will be second-to-none. The latest research demonstrates that the OPN S can optimise hearing to normal levels in noisy environments.
This hearing aid comes with the improved OpenSound Navigator, providing a balanced soundscape, which allows your brain to change between sound sources and focus on what’s important – whether it be one or many speakers. Your listening environment is scanned at more than 100 times per second to isolate speech from the background noise. The speech sound is then analysed, with all the important characteristics fed to your brain, giving you clear and balanced sound. This amazing technology will clear away excessive background noise, even removing noise from between words. The OPN S utilises BrainHearing technology to reduce your listening effort, improve your auditory memory, improve speech understanding in difficult listening environments and increase your ability to join in the conversation with numerous speakers.
Feedback (whistling in your hearing aid) can now be a thing of the past as the OPN S is able to identify and prevent feedback in less than 60 milliseconds. The OpenSound Optimiser is so fast it can identify and prevent feedback, with breaker-signal technology – stopping it before it occurs – amazing!
The OPN S has Bluetooth 2.4 GHz low energy giving you direct streaming to iPhones for hands free phone calls. Music quality is fantastic and can be streamed directly from Apple products. Android users can also connect with this feature for phone calls and music through the wireless ConnectClip.
The OpenSound in the OPN S also allows you to give yourself an extra boost of sound, should you need it. You can activate this boost power in the Oticon ON App. The App is where you can set up your streaming preferences, activate Tinnitus SoundSupport, use the ‘find my hearing aids’ application, and access the Oticon Hearing Fitness program. This support will help you optimise the use of your hearing aid, tracking your progress and giving you hints on how to improve your hearing aid in different situations. You can also connect to the internet with IFTTT. Here you can integrate your hearing aids with various home appliances, your email, your phone and even your calendar events. Your hearing aid becomes your personal assistant!
This new Opn S hearing aid release is available with lithium-ion rechargeable options. A three hour charge will give you a 24 hours of power, even if you are streaming (depending on level of hearing loss and how long you are streaming for). If you only have time for a quick recharge, 30 minutes of charging will give you six hours of power. The charger is beautifully designed and simple to use.
Oticon’s OPN S is available in three technology levels.
