Hearing aids made by Oticon
Oticon manufactures a full line of hearing aid models in all sizes and price ranges. Their flagship product is called Opn S and it has the fastest processing speed of all their models. The technology is meant to help users hear speech in noisy environments comparable to people with normal hearing ability. This model also has an upgraded rechargeable battery option that charges faster than previous solutions. The table below summarizes their current line-up of hearing aids. Prices can vary widely, though most range in price from $1,000 to $4,000, and that pricing may or may not include ongoing service from an audiologist or hearing instrument specialist.
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:
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.
Oticon’s tinnitus feature
All Opn and Ruby 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. Siya, 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 Opn Play hearing aids have a fast processing speed, which improves the child's ability to understand speech and reduces unwanted noise better. For children with severe or profound hearing loss, Oticon offers the Xceed Play model. 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 pediatric hearing aids:
Super power hearing aids
For adults with severe or profound hearing loss, Oticon offers the Xceed. Xceed is a super power BTE style with an amplifier that puts out a lot of sound with a size 13 battery, which is a smaller battery than power aids of the past.
Other hearing aids made by Oticon
For people with single-sided deafness, Oticon also offers a CROS hearing aid. A CROS hearing aid contains a transmitter with a microphone that wirelessly picks up and sends the sound from your poorer ear to the better ear.
In your research on hearing aids, you also may find these previous Oticon hearing aid models: Dynamo, Alta, Nera, Ria, Chili, Safari, Intiga 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 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, Xceed and Ruby 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 Xceed, Alta2, Nera2 and Ria2 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 Captivate, Enchant, Celebrate and Cheer. 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.
