Oticon Opn Play™

Open up your child's world with Oticon Opn Play

The new Oticon Opn Play helps
your child be just that - a child

As a parent, you probably have a lot of questions: How will your child cope at day care or school? Will he or she make friends? What about the future? With Oticon Opn Play, there’s finally a cutting-edge hearing aid that allows your child to learn, grow, play and thrive.

Open up their world, let them play, laugh along with friends, let them dream about the future. Just like any other child.

Give your child better opportunities to learn

Almost all children are curious to discover the world around them. Part of that discovery takes place through their ears. However, children with hearing loss need more assistance to learn words and develop social and language skills. The earlier they get help, the better.

So-called incidental learning occurs when children overhear what is being said around them, rather than through direct teaching. Therefore, it is essential that children are able to extract speech from background noise. Oticon Opn Play gives your child with hearing loss the right conditions to make sense out of sound.

Open up to a breakthrough in paediatric
hearing care

Oticon Opn Play gives your child 360º access to the world and helps your child differentiate between meaningful sound and irrelevant disturbing sound.

New technology improves speech understanding in noisy environments and supports incidental learning by giving your child access to multiple speakers in the environment.

From traditional technology to revolutionary open sound

Before Oticon Opn Play, your child could be either overloaded with access to all sounds and noise whether relevant or not, if fitted with traditional omni directional technology. Or they would be fitted with traditional directional technology which closes down sounds and restricts the opportunity to learn.

Oticon Opn Play marks the change from listening to the world, to truly making sense of the world. The groundbreaking innovation lets your child enjoy a full, balanced soundscape.

The technological revolution

How your child can get 360º access to sound

The OpenSound Navigator™ feature opens up your child’s world. It gives your child 360° access to the world and helps your child differentiate between meaningful sound and irrelevant disturbing sound, without reducing environmental sounds important to incidental learning and safety.

OpenSound Navigator makes it easier for the brain to decide who and what to listen to and to pay attention when needed. This is a great support when your child is in school, on the playground or in traffic.

Up to 30% improved speech understanding*

Test results show that the groundbreaking technology in Oticon Opn Play offers up to 30% improvement in speech recognition – even when facing away from the person talking.

Since children are lively and may not always face the person speaking this is a great advantage. Just as significantly, Oticon Opn Play also reduces the effort that children need to make in order to listen, allowing them to use more effort on other activities such as learning.

Finally, the optimal fitting without the risk of whistling sounds*

A well-fitted hearing aid is key to optimal language development and learning. Up until now, managing feedback often required a compromise between providing your child with optimal amplification or avoiding feedback (the high pitch whistle). OpenSound Optimizer™ changes all of this**.

With the groundbreaking OpenSound Optimizer, hearing care professionals can now fit your child with optimal gain without the risk of the whistling sound. This provides your child with increased comfort.

Oticon Opn Play prevents annoying feedback before it occurs

Giving children the amplification they need can cause annoying whistling sounds when something comes too close to a hearing aid. This is called feedback. Growing ears and situations where children play, hug or cover their ears with things like hats, can create this annoying sound. It used to be challenging to manage – until Oticon Opn Play.

The breakthrough proactive technology in Oticon Opn Play prevents this feedback before it occurs without compromising sound quality and clarity**. This allows your child to easily follow conversations, which is essential to language development, but won’t have to worry about annoying “squeals”.
