Oticon Opn 1™ 

June 2017 update - The range has been expanded. There are now new rechargeable options, additional "Tinnitus SoundSupport" software as standard to help to relieve tinnitus and "power plus" models for the severe to profoundly deaf.

 Jan 2017 Update - The "Just one new hearing aid" statement below is now incorrect, 6 months after the Opn1 came out they have brought out two lower specced versions, the Opn2 and Opn3

Oticon have just one new hearing aid out this year, but its a cracker.

Normally a manufacturer will bring out a whole range of hearing aids out at the same time, but so far Oticon have only developed one hearing aid on their newest Velox platform. When new hearing aids come out we typically expect numbers along the lines of "twice as fast as before" or similar. Not this time, the Velox chip in the Opn is 50 times faster than the previous generation of Oticon aids. This enables the hearing aids to do so much more than ever before, they scan the environment over 100 times per second so they always know what's going on and then take each individual sound and treat it accordingly, depending on how they are set up for the wearer.

OpenSound Navigator explained

OpenSound Navigator is at the core of what Opn is doing. 

OpenSound Navigator™ constantly scans your environment (as mentioned, over 100 times every second) to analyze the nature of the setting.
Precise analysis then accurately identifies all sources of speech and noise and having established the setting of the sound environment, OpenSound Navigator determines their characteristics. It determines whether they are important speech sounds or just noise, as well as where the sound is coming from, its level and its frequency.

The Navigator then adjusts sound sources to give you a perfectly balanced soundscape. Rather than just focusing on speech sounds from directly in front of you like most hearing aids do, the Opn ensures that you hear all relevant sounds from around you so that you don't miss out. Previous attempts at this level of filtering tend to mean that you hear a bit of a jumble, but because Opn is so fast, it can remove the background noise surrounding all sound sourses in real time so that you hear just the sounds you want and not the annoying background.

To enable users to feel at ease in a listening environment, OpenSound Navigator balances surrounding sounds so the focus sound is clear and other background sounds are available, but not disturbing. In this way, nothing is eliminated but individual sound sources are rebalanced to support the user in separating sounds, making it easier for the brain to switch attention immediately when needed. Oticon Opn can be optimized to personal preferences, based on individual needs for help in acoustic environments of differing complexity.

OpenSound Navigator attenuates excessive background noise extremely fast and effectively. This includes noise coming from the same direction as speech – even noise coming from the front – as well as all other surrounding noise in a 360° radius. It even removes the remaining noise between words, to make the overall background noise less intrusive. Based on individual needs, noise reduction can be optimized separately for simple and complex environments.
