Oticon Hearing Aids

Oticon’s electric Acousticon hearing aid devices were first offered to the public in 1904. After partnering with Charles Lehman, the American-Danish Oticon Corporation became the leading provider of hearing aids after World War II and a global contender in the hearing aid industry by 1965.

The development and release of their first ultra-discreet in-the-ear (ITE) hearing device occurred in 1977, with the company’s first digital device offered to the public in 1996.

The first devices with improved sound sensitivity, along with streaming and connectivity features, were made available in 2007.

Hearing Technology Solutions from Oticon

Oticon’s Brain Hearing philosophy has guided their 21st century innovations, which includes designs and technology that support how the brain processes sound and provides it with the elements necessary to create meaning from sound rather than simple amplification of sound.

Developed in 2016, Oticon’s Opn solution made it possible for device wearers to distinguish between multiple speakers within a noisy environment, while also establishing the capacity for internet connectivity (ConnectClip) using the IFTTT (If This Then That) Network.

In addition to building devices with higher quality of sound and enhanced instrument performance, investments into micro-digital technology has made it possible for the manufacturer to produce increasingly smaller devices without sacrificing performance capacity.

Thanks to streaming capabilities, Oticon integrated Tinnitus SoundSupport into their hearing devices which transmits white noise and other tinnitus masking sounds for auditory relief; used with Oticon’s Genie fitting and counseling tool, it makes it easier for your hearing care provider to fit your device and provide the necessary ongoing counseling and support without an in-office appointment.
