Written by Paul Harrison
The Oticon Acto (K130) is produced by the Danish manufacturer Oticon. Launched in October 2010 the Acto is available in 2 levels of technology, the Acto Pro (K140) (Mid level technology or the Acto (K130) (entry level technology).
The Oticon Acto is available as a BTE/RITE, Mini BTE/RITE, ITC and CIC meaning there is a style to suit everyone whether you have a mild or a severe to profound hearing loss.
The Acto has 6 fitting bands and 4 programs.
A big advantage of the Acto is the multi-band adaptive directionality which gives optimised speech understanding by suppressing other multiple interfering background noises meaning that it focuses on the person speaking to you.
One feature of the Acto is the Tri States Noise Management which constantly analyses the sound environment the user is in and immediately adjusts the sound accordingly which really comes into effect when going from a quiet to noisy or noisy to quiet room. This ensures the wearer always benefits from a clear and comfortable sound.
For binaural wearers the two hearing aids work together in a very similar way that peoples ears do in nature.
The Acto has wind-noise protection where the microphone is protected against wind/weather noises when outdoors.
There are also assisted listening devices available called the Oticon ConnectLine system that can be combined with your hearing aids which enables the user to listen to music, landline telephone or TV much more clearly by beaming the sound direct to the hearing aids therefore helping to cut out other background noise. This also works like a remote control allowing the wearer to control their hearing aids at the touch of a button! Please note that Connectline is not compatible with all of the ITE/ITC styles.
For the fashion conscious the Acto is available in an exciting range of colours.
In summary the Oticon Acto is an entry technology level hearing aid which is easy to use and suitable for up to a severe to profound hearing loss. For a higher technology hearing aid consider the Oticon Acto Pro.
