Oticon Hearing Instruments & Connectivity Accessories

We'll fit you with the highest-quality hearing aids available, expertly programmed to meet the demands of your lifestyle.

Hearing aids come in a variety of designs and with a wide range of functions and features to address an individual’s specific needs. The most basic components include a microphone, an amplifier, a receiver, and a small computer. The effectiveness of modern digital hearing devices comes from a powerful combination of professional expertise, software, and hardware. 


Oticon’s Opn hearing aid platform is unparalleled in its capability to process speech in noise.

With earlier technology, the approach for processing speech in noise was to offer a directional hearing setting that reduced the sounds behind you and to your sides, leaving only a single beam of focus toward a speaker in front of you.

The Oticon Opn product series, by contrast, allows automatically adaptive balancing of speech and background noise, enabling you to more easily function in complex acoustic environments.

Opn hearing instruments actively scan your environment 100 times per second, providing you with more accurate information about the 360º  sound-scape surrounding you. Your ability to understand speech is improved by up to 30%, so that you don't need to work as hard to understand, leaving more mental energy to remember what you hear. Opn devices also provide significant benefit in the perception of spatial acoustic cues, which are necessary for maintaining acoustic balance, and best natural ability to localize your focus to the source of voices or sounds.

Opn technology levels:

  • Opn I is Oticon’s premium level product. Opn I provides the easiest listening experience with maximum reduction of background noise and rapid reduction of loud noise coming from specific directions while preserving speech.
  • Opn II is the Oticon mid-level product and provides an easier listening experience with moderate reduction of background noise, and reduction of loud noise coming from specific directions while preserving speech.
  • Opn III is the base level of the Opn platform. Still superior to any other product on the market, Opn III offers an improved listening experience with basic reduction of loud noise coming from specific directions while preserving speech.
