Oticon Opn S™

The life-changing
Oticon Opn S
breaks a law of physics

Discover Oticon Opn S in this video

First, we introduced a new sound
paradigm

The revolutionary Oticon Opn™ broke with the conventional way of supporting people with hearing loss in noisy environments.

Instead of applying narrow directionality and closing down surrounding sounds, it opened up their world. Oticon Opn delivered what the brain needs to make sense of sound.

Now, Oticon Opn S
takes it to the next level

Oticon Opn S breaks a law of physics and delivers further improvements in speech understanding and listening effort. Fuelled by the new, advanced Velox S™ platform, Oticon Opn S takes the open sound experience and unique benefits of BrainHearing™ to new grounds.

  • The OpenSound Optimizer™

    The ultra-fast computations of this groundbreaking new feature makes Oticon Opn S able to detect and prevent feedback proactively, in under 60 ms.

  • Upgraded OpenSound Navigator™

    Oticon Opn S comes with an improved version of the groundbreaking OpenSound Navigator offering even more help in everyday situations to those users who need it most.

  • Closing another gap to normal hearing

    Studies prove that Oticon Opn S users can experience speech understanding* at the level of people with normal hearing in noisy environments.

  • Rechargeable solution

    State-of-the-art rechargeable lithium-ion solution offers a super fast three-hour charging time for a full day of power, including streaming.

    Lithium-ion battery performance varies depending on hearing loss, lifestyle and streaming behaviour

What is the law of physics?

According to the laws of physics, a microphone too close to a speaker, creates feedback.

As a hearing care professional you want to give optimal gain to every client. While providing each person with the comfort of an open dome.

But this is often not possible due to the risk of feedback*. Until now, this law has restricted hearing care professionals in their fitting and trapped them in a world of compromise. A compromise on sound clarity and audibility due to reduced gain and a compromise on comfort due to closed fittings. Oticon Opn S changes all this.

Now, the OpenSound
Optimizer gives you 
a
whole new level of
fitting freedom

The law-breaking feature analyses the amplified sound at an astonishing 56,000 times/sec. It’s so fast it can detect and prevent feedback pro-actively, even before it occurs.

The OpenSound Optimizer enables you to open up the client’s world with up to 6 dB of additional gain, in an open fitting. All without the risk of feedback.* The OpenSound Optimizer represents a breakthrough in accessing speech details with more natural sound and increased comfort.

* For prescribed fittings, according to best practice

to the brain

By offering the possibility of amplifying speech with up to 6 additional dB, in an open fitting, Oticon Opn S can provide the brain with up to 30% more speech cues.*

Oticon Opn S boosts
the open sound experience

Oticon Opn S comes with an even better version of the groundbreaking OpenSound Navigator. A new Very High setting can be activated in Oticon Genie 2 software. This offers even more help in everyday situations to those users who need it most.

OpenSound Navigator
gives 360° access to
sound

At ultra-fast speed, the OpenSound Navigator continually rebalances the soundscape while providing constant access to all relevant sounds and speech. This is how Oticon Opn S makes it easier for the brain to decide who and what to listen to and switch attention when needed.

Empowering users with
the new OpenSound
Booster

Expanding the benefits of
BrainHearing™

One law we will never break is making hearing aids that work with the brain and deliver what it needs to make sense of sound. This is Brainhearing.

Better speech understanding and reduced listening effort

With the introduction of Oticon Opn and the open sound experience, we proved how this unique approach outperforms traditional hearing aid technology.

Now, with the upgraded OpenSound Navigator and the OpenSound Optimizer working together, Oticon Opn S takes BrainHearing™ benefits to new heights*:

  • Oticon Opn increased speech understanding with 30% compared to traditional hearing aids. Now, Oticon Opn S outperforms Oticon Opn with a further 15% increase.

  • Oticon Opn reduced the listening effort with 20% compared to traditional hearing aids. Oticon Opn S adds an extra 10% reduction to that performance.

  • Oticon Opn improved memory recall with 20% compared to traditional hearing aids. With Oticon Opn S that number is increased with an additional 10%.

Improved speech understanding in
noisy environments

The biggest challenge for people with hearing loss is being able to thrive in noisy environments with multiple speakers.

With up to 6 dB more gain, open fittings and the open sound experience, Oticon Opn S users can experience speech understanding in these difficult listening environments at the level of people with normal hearing.*
