Oticon Hearing Aids at HearCare Rhode Island

With their motto, “People first,” Oticon, in conjunction with the Ericksholm Research Institute, leads the pack with their groundbreaking application of auditory and brain research.

Oticon has recently introduced BrainHearing technology to their hearing aids, posited by the belief that hearing happens both in the ear and the brain. Through this line of reasoning, Oticon hearing aids aim to lessen the cognitive load on brains dealing with hearing loss by improving speech recognition, spatial sound recognition, hearing focus, and tools to customize hearing programs to meet the wearer’s individual needs.

With many options for wireless technology, Oticon hearing aids come in many different styles to suit diverse aesthetic preferences, and also range in ability to treat degrees of hearing loss from mild to severe. Their customizable color and design options are attractive to wearers who prefer discreet hearing aids. Oticon also offers models tailored specifically for children and teenagers living with hearing loss.

Oticon BrainHearing Technology

Based on the groundbreaking theory that hearing happens in the brain, Oticon released its BrainHearing Technology with Inium platform, the first sound processing platform that supports the brain’s entire process of making sound. BrainHearing entails four main features: Speech Guard E, Spatial Sound, YouMatic, and Free Focus. Speech Guard E helps the wearer make better sense of conversations by protecting natural elements of speech, within a variety of settings, while Spatial Sound assists the brain in understanding its sense of space through processing sound. Because every brain processes sound differently, the YouMatic feature allows the wearer to personalize their sonic experience. This platform assists the brain by modifying sounds received to preserve the unique characteristics of speech and noise; Oticon’s theory is that when neural pathways are kept engaged, the brain does not constantly strain to hear. This feature, Free Focus, relieves the brain of fatigue and overstimulation from unnecessary amplification when wearing a hearing aid. Oticon’s hearing aids come in many discreet styles, treating a range from mild to severe hearing loss. They offer wireless technology, tinnitus therapy, as well as hearing aids specifically for children and teenagers.
