People First

People First! We believe that it takes more than technology to create the best hearing care solution. That's why we put the individual needs and wishes of the hard-of-hearing first in our development of new hearing care solutions. Because hearing care professionals are the key to ensuring that the optimum solution reaches those who need it, they are also the key to our success.

“It all starts with the brain”

We know that speech understanding and compression are cognitive processes – they happen in the brain.  Our brain processes and interprets the sounds our ears detect.  The fewer details of sound the brain receives, the harder it has to work to make sense of it.  Oticon provides better hearing with less effort by giving the brain the cleanest, purest signal to decode.  We call this approach BrainHearing™.
