BrainHearing™ is a term Oticon uses to describe its approach to creating solutions for people with hearing loss. The basic philosophy is to use hearing aid sound processing technology to create the conditions your brain needs to create meaning from sound, rather than overloading it with volume. The intention is to reduce the strain, or cognitive load, associate with listening closely. Oticon claims that this leaves you feeling less tired as well as providing you with a more natural and pleasant soundscape.
Like all major manufactures Oticon has an extremely broad range of features available in small devices. Patients can confidently expect to access options such as Bluetooth connectivity, lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, sound data analysis and processing via 64 channels 100 times per second, easy volume and program controls for multiple customisable programs, tinnitus relief capability, excellent water and dust protection (IP rating 68), telecoil, and a 3-year manufacturers warranty. With the Oticon RemoteCare app, you can take advantage of follow-up consultations and online counselling with A Better Ear from outside the clinic.
With a fully-featured range of hearing aids and accessories, Oticon is an excellent choice for many people suffering from hearing loss on one or both sides.
In Australia, Oticon hearing aids are distributed via independent clinics such as A Better Ear as well as through a chain of Demant owned retail stores falling under the ‘Audika’ name.
