We listen with our brains
Oticon’s hearing technology is developed with the fact that we don’t hear with our ears, but with our brains, in mind.
Your brain receives sound information and then translates those sounds into something you can hear. Your brain also discriminates between sounds it wants to listen to and those it chooses to ignore.
Your brain tries to make sense of the sound it receives and extracts meaning from what you hear.
If your brain receives only partial information, it’s harder to translate those sounds into something meaningful that facilitates complete speech understanding. The result is you increase cognitive load, using up more mental energy and effort.
Educational and cognitive development
Studies show a young person’s educational, speech, and cognitive development can be negatively affected by hearing loss if left untreated.
So, their brains need to receive all the information necessary for them to hear well and make sense of what they’re hearing.
Opn hearing aids, backed by Oticon’s BrainHearing™ technology helps your child hear and retain more information with less effort.
#ShowYourAids in style
Opn hearing aids aren’t invisible, but like many hearing aid models today, are small enough so that they don’t have to be the centre of attention. These hearing devices come in colours that blend in with your skin tone, hair or just your personal style.
