Oticon OPN

Oticon, the world’s leading innovator of BrainHearing™ technology introduces Oticon Opn™, a breakthrough hearing aid that has been shown to provide people with hearing loss improved speech understanding* – 30 percent more than the previous generation’s most advanced technology – and up to a 20 percent reduction in listening effort* and up to 20 percent better recall of conversations.**

Oticon Opn™ is built on the new Velox™ platform, which processes sound at extreme speed to remove distracting noise, even between words, so that Opn™ users can easily follow conversation even in environments with multiple people speaking, such as crowded restaurants.  Opn™ connects directly to mobile devices and other external devices with just a tap of the fingertips, streaming audio directly to the hearing aids. Opn™ is also the world’s first hearing device that is connected to the Internet of Things.

“Never before has there been a hearing device this powerful and this small that allows sound to reach the brain as precisely and accurately as Opn™. By making it easier on the brain, Opn™ decreases listening effort even in environments that are challenging for people with hearing loss, so they have more energy to follow the conversation and remember what is said.”

Key innovative features of Oticon Opn include:

  • First hearing aids with two internal wireless communication systems: One system allows the right and left hearing aids to “talk” to each other at streaming speeds for a balanced, natural sound experience and the second system connects the hearing aids to external Bluetooth enabled devices;
  • Tiny, high-speed computer chip allows for full wireless access so users can stay connected to mobile phones and other external devices;
  • 50 times faster than the latest Oticon platform for quicker, more accurate sound processing;
  • 64 frequency channels ensure clear, precise sound reproduction for better speech understanding;
  • Scans the environment more than 100 times per second, analyzing and balancing sounds for richer, more realistic 360° sound picture;
  • First-ever connectivity to house-hold items such as door bells, thermostat or baby monitors through If This Then That service (IFTTT.com).

VeloxOticon Opn™, powered by a tiny, innovation-packed chip, is the culmination of five years of engineering and technology development.

Distinct Oticon Opn™ Features:

Velox™ Ultra-Fast and Precise Sound Processing Offers Rich More Meaningful Soundscape
The Velox platform offers the extreme speed needed to rapidly analyze and balance sounds in the environment and eliminate noise between words. Surrounding sounds are available but not intrusive. Velox manages multiple sound sources, analyzing and processing sound data 50 times faster than before. Market-leading 64-band frequency resolution enables a more precise sound analysis and better sound quality to support the brain’s ability to make sense of sound.

TwinLink™ Technology: Binaural Processing & Direct Connectivity
Oticon Opn is the industry’s first hearing solution to offer TwinLink technology, two communication systems in one hearing solution. One system provides near-field magnetic communication (NFMI) which optimizes binaural ear-to-ear processing to support communication between two hearing aids for a more natural sound experience. A second dedicated system uses 2.4GHz Bluetooth direct streaming for wireless communication to smartphones, music players, computers, TV and more.

Internet Connected Hearing Device
Oticon Opn connects directly to the internet via the If This Then That service (IFTTT.com). Users can connect to a wide range of IFTTT-enabled devices used in everyday life such as door bells, thermostats and baby monitors. Oticon Opn users will be able to use their hearing aids with a growing number of IFTTT-compatible products and services as they become available.

OpenSound Navigator™
OpenSound Navigator™ scans, analyzes and reacts to sounds in the environment more than 100 times per second. Thanks to this extreme processing speed, Oticon Opn™ is able to continually analyze and balance sounds, removing noise between words. Users can follow the sounds they want to hear and quickly shift attention when desired. Surrounding sounds are available but not intrusive so users can focus on the sounds they want to hear even in noisy situations.

About Oticon ON App
The Oticon ON App lets you control your hearing aids, choose what you want to hear and adjust the sound from your mobile phone. The app also offers a convenient “find my hearing aid” search feature, counseling advice, links to user instructions and a low battery notification.

I am a very satisfied customer, the service and after care is is of the best, E J Appleton

Ann C

I have received excellent support over the last 6 years from Paul Minikin of Digital Hearing Care. Recently I have replaced my Phonak Audeo Smart with Phonak Audeo V and am delighted with my improved hearing. Ann Chappell

Aged 73, I felt that the time had come for me to seek help with my gradually worsening hearing loss. I saw the website for Digital Hearing Care which made a lot of sense to me. The audiologist carried out an assessment and recommended Phonak Audeo V90 which I bought at a great price. Everything was done in a very competent and reassuring manner. Not many of my family or friends have realised that I have been wearing aids until I tell them !

Ross W

I recently upgraded my Phonak Audio hearing aids to the latest Audeo V model. The improvement in technology is amazing! I can hear much more clearly and find I can wear them in comfort, even in challenging conditions (a hot and steamy commercial kitchen) where the previous model was uncomfortable and would often die as a result of the moisture. Without wishing to sound too much like a advert for Paul, the only thing not improved is the exemplary service he has always provided. Worth every penny!

Ajaz

Want impartial advice? Want first class aftercare service? Want someone trustworthy? Then go for digital hearing care!

C M

Digital Hearing Care is an outstanding independent company that puts the customer first. Nothing is too much trouble and the hearing aids recommended from their comprehensive selection are the most effective ones for the individual concerned.

Jim S

I have the Phonak hearing aid also the Roger pen and the Phonak digital phone. I recently had a problem with my phone and contacted Paul the Audioligist who asked me to send it down for inspection. I posted it on the Tuesday and received a new phone from Phonak on the Friday, I must say the service from Paul and Phonak has to be second to none. Once again thank you and well done A very satisfied customer J W Stephenson

John V

I have dealt with Digital Hearing Care and its associate company HAB for 6 years since I had my Phonak aids dispensed by Paul Miniken and have been delighted with the level of professionalism and prompt service I have received. My supplies of batteries and cerustops are ordered on line and are always received next day, postage free, about a year ago I had to order a battery carrier, the original had developed a crack in the plastic and HAB supplied a replacement together with the pin removal tool by return post. I have also had to replace broken speaker wires which have been received next day and fitted easily, I have never been without my hearing aids thanks to their superb service, if you are not using them, do give them a try, you will not be disappointed.

David D

After much searching on the Internet and an attempt at an NHS referral I recently purchased 2 Phonak Audeo V90s from Digital Hearing Care. The best decision I made! My hearing has improved greatly and my confidence has grown. I now have no problems hearing at work and the TV is a pleasure to watch again. I'm only in my 30s so aesthetics was a factor as well. To date nobody has mentioned my hearing aids and it took my wife 6 hours to notice when I first put them in, she only realised when I accidentally left the box out. It is a really descreet design and people are genuinely surprised when I tell them that I'm wearing hearing aids. The aftercare has been second to none as well. I had a problem with intermittent static in one aid but Paul quickly resolved this with a brand new aid at no extra cost. I can't thank Paul enough and highly recommend Digital Hearing Care. If you are considering hearing aids definitely get yourself booked in for a hearing test. Dave, Silsden.

Vera K

I found my new Phonak hearing aids wonderful ,once I got used to putting them in properly !With my previous aids, which were 5 years old, I had difficulty hearing the conversation when out with friends, but on a recent cruise, when sharing a table at dinner with four or six other people, I had no difficulty whatsoever joining in the conversation. Background noises are no longer a problem. Needless to say I am very happy with my new aids. I would like to say a big thank you to Paul Minikin for the excellent service he gives and his enthusiasm to get the very best outcome. It is lovely to meet someone who obviously enjoys his job so much and to whom nothing is too much trouble. V. Kenny.

Michael

Paul from Digital Hearing Care has provided a first class back-up service , since I purchased my Phonak cic hearing aids from him. After my hearing test Paul was particularly helpful and knowledgable, guiding me through the various manufacturers/models to enable me to make an informed decision. I would certainly recommend DHC, and will be contacting Paul for my next hearing aids. MT Leeds

I have been shopping with Digital Hearing Care for a number of years now and have had excellent service each time. The products are top brands at low prices and delivery has always been quick. If I have needed advice my email has always been answered quickly, even on a weekend, and the staff are all very friendly and do their best to help out in anyway. All in all I wouldn't shop anywhere else. Keep up the good work. Mrs J Warriner

First class personal service. No hesitation recommend others.

Paul

I have used the services of Digital Hearing Care since 2012, and on each occasion, I have received excellent service. The initial hearing test was conducted at home with the minimum of disruption and with great care. I was given a choice of hearing aids and advised on the best ones for me (and not the most expensive!). If I have had any issues with my hearing aids, I have always received excellent after-care. I have kept in touch with Paul and his team over the past three years and buy all of my hearing aid consumables from Digital Hearing Care.

Michael

Excellent personal service from first contact to fitting of hearing aids. First class after care shoud you need to use it. Competitive prices. Would recommend without hesitation.
