Oticon’s Opn is changing more people’s lives with a new world of sound, helping them open up to the world like never before. Opn is the first hearing aid proven to work in harmony with the brain to help people hear better with less effort and to remember more of what is being said. Oticon Opn™ is a Bluetooth hearing aid that improves your ability to understand speech by up to 30%, compared to the previous generation of hearing aids.
Running on Oticon’s new Velox™ Platform, the Opn™ will process data 50x faster than Oticon’s previous processing platform, “Inium Sense.” Oticon has also bumped the number of frequency processing channels to 64 and added an environmental analysis that runs in excess of 100x per second. Oticon claims that all this processing power has helped them to achieve better speech understanding, reduced listening effort, and an increase the ability to remember conversations.
Aside from processing improvements the Oticon Opn™ miniRITE is the first Oticon hearing have direct iPhone connectivity. This means no more intermediary device necessary to stream audio, phone calls, etc, from your iPhone (or compatible iOS device). From Oticon’s marketing materials: Oticon Opn is compatible with iPhone SE, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th and 6th generation). Devices must be running iOS 9.3 or later.
Opn™ may be paired with the TV Adapter 3.0 for a 2.4GHz audio streaming solution for television. Again, no intermediary device is required.
Directionality as we know it is now a thing of the past. Where traditional hearing aids focuses on one speaker and suppresses all others, Oticon Opn opens up the soundscape to embrace multiple speakers.
Clear Dynamics – Better sound, less distortion
A richer listening experience especially when enjoying music or engaging in conversation in noisy environments. When listening to music or chatting with friends in busy, dynamic environments (such as dinner parties or sporting events), sound peaks are often louder than what most hearing aids are able to handle. Clear Dynamics expands the input dynamic range so you enjoy better sound quality without distortion even in loud environments.
