A New Approach to Attacking the Noise Problem: Effective and effortless speech understanding continues to be the biggest unmet need of those with hearing loss. Powered by the new Velox platform, Open Sound Navigator represents a dramatic step up in the use of signal processing to provide the brain the best information needed to successfully understand speech in complex listing situations. Going well beyond the principles and performance of traditional directionality and noise reduction, but without the compromises of beamforming, Open Sound Navigator is the best example of the Oticon BrainHearing Approach in action. The BrainHearing™ Benefit for the Patient: Speech understanding is so much more than recognizing individual words. It encompasses the broad range of cognitive processes that are involved when humans have a conversation. The design of OpenSound Navigator, along with BrainHearingTM technologies in Oticon Opn have been demonstrated to not just improve word recognition, but to also reduce the cognitive load on the brain, freeing the listener to process the spoken signal at a deeper level. In this talk, we will describe the effects of Oticon Opn on speech understanding, listening effort and the ability to recall what was just said.
