Range of Products
Oticon have a full range of hearing aid styles, which includes their flagship model; the OPN which comes in a Receiver in the Ear (RITE) model.
In 2016, Oticon released the first internet-connected (“If This Then That”) hearing aid and were one of the first companies to employ the “open-sound” approach to hearing in noise. Rather than using narrow directionality, Oticon employed their “brain hearing” which made all environmental sounds accessible, but not intrusive. Many users have reported “a more natural sound”.
