Standard hearing aid features

Like all major manufacturers, Oticon organizes their hearing aid models into levels of technology and features to fit the lifestyle and budget of every patient. This is reflected in the range of relative pricing indicated in the chart.

Certain features are standard on all current Oticon hearing aid models intended for adults:

  • Digitally programmable to fit a wide variety of hearing loss configurations
  • Available in an array of styles and colors
  • Wireless capability to connect with phones and other external devices
  • At least one style that can accommodate a telecoil for accessing induction loop amplification in public spaces, like theaters and places of worship

Premium hearing aid features

Premium hearing aid features are those that are generally available at the highest price points or in the most advanced technology.

Made for iPhone is a premium hearing
aid feature.
  • Faster sound processing that improves sound quality (reduces background noise better, picks sounds out of noise better, determines where sounds are coming from)
  • Rechargeable batteries available for some styles
  • Wireless streaming of iPhone sounds directly to both hearing aids via Made for iPhone technology
  • Wireless streaming with other electronic devices through the innovative If This Then That (IFTTT) network; this feature allows wearers the option to integrate hearing aids with applications that can send messages to caregivers or automate functions at home, work or on the go

Oticon’s tinnitus feature

All Opn and Siya performance levels and models include a proprietary tinnitus therapy feature. This feature, branded Tinnitus SoundSupport, allows the user to select from broadband sounds or ocean-like sounds that are adjustable for tinnitus relief. Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2 also offer Tinnitus SoundSupport as an optional feature.

Pediatric hearing aids

Oticon has long been regarded as a leader in pediatric amplification with the types of hearing aids and accessories needed by children in the classroom and beyond. The pediatric-focused Sensei hearing aids can be configured as super power hearing aids for children with severe or profound hearing loss. Pediatric hearing aid models are available in RITE and BTE styles, which sit behind the ear. These styles are best for children since they grow and change too quickly to make custom-fit ITE hearing aids practical.

In addition to providing multiple fun color options and stickers for personalization, the following kid-friendly features come standard on the Sensei hearing aids:

  • An LED light on the case to indicate the hearing aid is functioning properly
  • Hypoallergenic, phthalate-free case construction
  • Water and dust resistance
  • Shock and drop resistance
  • Tamper-resistant battery doors

As indicated in the table, the Opn hearing aid model may be configured for older children and teens who want to take advantage of the Made for iPhone and other connectivity features.

Super power hearing aids

Oticon also makes a super power hearing aid for adults with profound hearing loss, called Dynamo. Dynamo is a super power BTE style with an amplifier that puts out a lot of sound with just a size 13 battery, which is a smaller battery than power aids of the past. Dynamo hearing aids are available at four different price points, depending on the number of features included in the device.

Other hearing aids made by Oticon

In your research on hearing aids, you may find these previous Oticon hearing aid models: Alta, Nera, Ria, Chili, SafariIntiga or Agil. Talk to your hearing care professional if you want to compare features between older and current hearing aid models.  

Accessories for Oticon hearing aids

Oticon hearing aids come in all styles.

Oticon offers accessories and assistive technology to help people better connect with the world around them. The newest product from Oticon is the ConnectClip, a multi-functional accessory for Opn and Siya that allows hands-free streaming of phone calls and audio. It can also act as a remote microphone in meetings, worship services, cars and sports venues. Opn hearing aids also stream directly to a remote control, TV adapter and the Oticon ON App.

The Connectline and Streamer Pro are assistive listening devices that wirelessly connect an individual’s hearing aids with other sound sources such as television, mobile phones, computers, MP3 players and personal microphones. The Connectline accessories are compatible with Alta2, Nera2, Ria2 and Dynamo hearing aids.

Oticon also manufactures a personal FM system, the Amigo, which provides direct audio input from a microphone worn by any speaker, such as a teacher, spouse, business colleague or dinner companion. The Amigo FM system is compatible with all Oticon models in the BTE style.

Oticon gives back to the community

The William Demant Hearing Foundation (formerly Oticon Hearing Foundation) is another way Oticon puts people first. This charitable organization strives to support non-profit humanitarian initiatives to assist people with little or no access to hearing treatment. To that end, William Demant Hearing Foundation funds yearly global missions to help individuals across the world receive the hearing healthcare they need. They also run a recycling program that reconditions donated hearing aids and sends them to select locations in need of hearing health technology.

Oticon’s sister companies

Demant A/S (previously William Demant Holdings), the parent company of Oticon, also operates manufacturers Bernafon, Sonic Innovations and Oticon Medical. Bernafon offers a complete hearing aid portfolio with models including the Zerena and Supremia. Sonic Innovations markets the hearing aid models Enchant, Celebrate, Cheer, Journey, Bliss, Charm, Pep and Flip. Oticon Medical is a leader in bone-anchored hearing systems (BAHS), which are surgically-implanted solutions that conduct sound vibrations through the skull bones, in contrast to regular hearing aids, which amplify acoustic sounds that enter the ear canal.
