Because experiences are vital to children’s development

Children are adventurers who are always looking for new experiences. Experiences filled with sounds, conversations, interactions – elements vital to their growth. Independent research shows that to grow, develop and mature, children need access to all sounds.1

That's why Oticon Play PX gives children with hearing loss access to all relevant sounds in the sound scene. This supports cognitive development, speech and language development, the development of social relationships and inclusion – all through our proven BrainHearing™ technology.

Children’s development is a result of learned experiences

Our brains start developing before we are born, and they continue to grow rapidly in early childhood and into adolescence. The experiences we encounter along the way stimulate the brain and support the development of important skills, cognitive functions, and other growth benefits throughout childhood.

Without full access to communication and the world of sounds around them, children with hearing loss may not get sufficient sensory input to meet developmental targets. Hearing technology can help by providing assistance that can have a life-changing impact.

Oticon Play PX promotes participation in everyday listening environments

By giving children access to the full sound environment in a more natural way, Oticon Play PX hearing aids provide optimal support for children’s language, learning and social development.

We tested how Oticon Play PX supports children’s ability to hear and understand words in noise when they came from different directions, to simulate a typical listening environment like a classroom. The results showed that Oticon Play PX significantly helps children to recognise and recall words, even when speech comes from multiple directions.3

Oticon Play PX is trained with real-life sounds – just like the young brain

To ensure the brain has optimal support, Oticon Play PX is powered by our most intelligent platform, Polaris. It utilises the intelligent capabilities of an on-board Deep Neural Network (DNN) that mimics the way the child’s brain learns. The DNN has been trained with 12 million sound scenes from real life. This intelligence enables Oticon Play PX to create a map of what the world sounds like, the details of each sound, and how they should ideally sound.

MoreSound Intelligence™

Gives children access to the full sound scene

Inside Oticon Play PX, MoreSound Intelligence is a groundbreaking new feature that makes it easier for the brain to separate sounds and focus on what is important. It’s comprised of three parts that work together to provide the brain with a more precise and natural representation of all sounds in the environment. This gives the brain clear information, making it easier to make sense of sound for improved speech recognition and recall.5

Intelligent amplification and feedback prevention

MoreSound Amplifier™ seamlessly adapts its resolution and speed to the nature of the sound scene, resulting in balanced and precise amplification.

MoreSound Optimizer™ lets you say goodbye to feedback because it prevents feedback from happening and dramatically reduces gain reductions during the day.^ It lets Oticon Play PX provide optimal amplification in a more comfortable and stable way.^^

Let children connect to the world

A user-friendly remote microphone built for classrooms

EduMic is an easy-to-use classroom hearing solution. It is a wireless remote microphone that provides clear and reliable direct access to the teacher’s voice to help children manage noise, reverberation, and distance in the classroom.

Research shows that EduMic improves children’s speech understanding in class, and improves language development, learning, and social opportunities.7 In addition, EduMic performs better than traditional frequency modulated remote microphone systems when compared in noisy environments.8
