6 Min read

7th Apr 2015

Oticon are one of the premium hearing aid suppliers that we use here in Worcester. They have been focused on delivering amplification that is as natural as possible over the last few years in order that they can best present sound to the brain. This focus has been called Brainhearing technology. In essence they believe that the best route to better hearing is to focus on delivering a solution designed for the brain to easily recognise. They also process sounds in such a way that they take advantage of the Brain’s natural abilities. They have just released their latest Brainhearing technology.

Main features

IFrame

16 Channels Controlled By 10 Bands

The more bands a hearing aid has the better it can fine tune the channels to amplify and clarify sounds and speech. These work with the other programs to ensure a better listening experience.

Noise Reduction

This feature reduces the level of background noise without affecting the volume of speech around you, giving you better clarity when having conversations in noisy places. If you have problems in noise, this type of feature is ideal for you.

Wind Noise Reduction

This program recognises and reduces the sound of wind, making it easier to hear speech when you are outside. An ideal feature if you are active in the outdoors, take walks or like to play golf.

Spatial Sound Premium

Spatial Sound is based on a binaural wireless system. By preserving the natural characteristics of the signal from both ears simultaneously, this technology assists the brain in the process of organising, selecting and following sounds, resulting in easier access to speech in noise. This is the core of the system, it tries to ensure that sound is presented normally so the power of the brain’s natural abilities can be used.

Binural Synchronisation

Noise reduction and directionality are automatically aligned in both ears, creating consistent sound reception. This allows the most natural sound quality and ensures the hearing aids work as a pair.

BrainHearing Technology

This program uses Binaural Processing and Binaural Synchronisation to allow your hearing aids to communicate with each other and ensure they are always on the same program settings and volume. This also helps you to hear where sounds are coming from, giving you better spatial awareness. The telephone program sends the sound from the phone to both hearing aids at the same time, making calls easier. The Spatial Noise Management program compares the speech and noise volumes around you and is able to increase speech clarity. This gives you better understanding of speech in noise.

Soft Speech Booster

This program amplifies the harder to hear speech sounds at higher frequencies. Many people with high frequency hearing loss find it difficult to hear the beginning or end of words, and struggle with conversations. This program brings these high frequency sounds within hearing range.

YouMatic Premium

Designed for different listening situations, this program can contain 5 different profiles tailored to suit your needs, ideal for busy lifestyles.

FreeFocus Premium

This program controls the directional microphones and gives you five different modes for hearing sound in front of you, behind you, to the side or all around you. This is ideal for times when you cannot always turn to face the person speaking.

SpeechGuard E

This is designed for quieter environments and works to amplify speech sounds. It also adapts to your environment, ensuring listening comfort if background noise increases.

10 kHz Bandwidth

This gives a rich listening experience and great sound quality when listening to music.

Inium Feedback Shield

The feedback program removes the whistle or buzz of feedback before you know it’s there.

Tinnitus Sound Support

This program plays relaxing sounds to give relief from the whistle of tinnitus. The Tinnitus Sound App, used with Oticon’s ConnectLine Streamer Pro allows you to personalise your sound settings and also gives you some relaxation exercises.

VC Learning

These hearing aids are able to learn what your favourite settings are over time and apply them for you.

Adaptation Manager

New hearing aids can seem too loud, especially if you have been without good hearing for a while. This program allows you to get used to the noisy world gradually by slowly increasing the volume.

Wireless Connectivity

Helps to experience better connections with people, information and entertainment.
Phone communication – breaks down the barriers to phone communication. Incoming calls can be taken by simply pressing the dedicated phone button on the streamer, and the caller’s voice is streamed directly through the hearing instruments.

ConnectLine for life’s many opportunities
