Oticon Opn Expands Open Sound Experience with New Custom Styles That Include Smallest Oticon IIC Ever


For Essential Users, Oticon Introduces New Siya with High Resolution Sound

SOMERSET, NJ  September 13– The expanded Oticon Opn™ family delivers the revolutionary open sound experience in styles and performance levels to satisfy a wide range of hearing needs and preferences – making Opn the hearing solution of choice for users and hearing care professionals more than one million times over.  Now, new Oticon Opn Custom solutions bring 360°sound to users who want the ultimate in discretion. Five new custom styles, including the smallest hearing aid style Oticon has ever produced, use BrainHearing™ technology and Opn’s extremely fast and precise technology to support the brain in making sense of sound and enable users to easily identify where sounds are coming from, even in challenging environments. 

“The variety of Opn Custom styles, functionalities and features combined with Oticon’s groundbreaking open sound experience provides hearing care professionals with even more Opn choices for their patients, especially those who are reluctant to try hearing aids,” says Don Schum, PhD, Oticon Vice President of Audiology. “For many first-time users, the appeal of an invisible hearing solution, our smallest IIC ever, may be the catalyst for taking action to address their hearing loss.”

No Compromise on Quality, Reliability, Performance

Like all Oticon Opn hearing aids, the comprehensive range of Opn Custom hearing aids breaks through some of the biggest challenges faced by people with hearing loss: understanding speech in noise and handling multiple speakers. The custom lineup includes fully-featured styles with outstanding 2.4 GHz low energy Bluetooth® connectivity that offers an array of wireless possibilities. The miniaturization of all components enables more functionality in less space, resulting in fewer compromises and more modeling freedom to support a better physical fit and a higher fit rate. The effect and availability of Opn Custom features varies with hearing aid style and prescription.

Oticon Siya Amplifies Rich Details of Sound 

New Oticon Siya offers an excellent listening experience for users of hearing aids in the essential category. Siya amplifies the rich details of sounds, so users can follow conversations in noisy environments. Oticon BrainHearing technology and a powerful chip that processes sound 50 times faster than Oticon’s previous generation of essential hearing aids deliver high resolution sound quality to improve speech understanding. 

With 2.4 GHz Bluetooth low energy technology, Siya is the first hearing aid in the essential category to allow easy wireless connectivity with low battery consumption to modern smartphones, TVs and other Bluetooth®-enabled devices. Siya comes in a complete lineup of styles, ranging from invisible custom styles to power hearing aids.

HearingFitness™ Encourages Healthy Hearing Habits

HearingFitness™is a new tool, available in Oticon’s proprietary ON App, to help people with hearing loss understand how they can optimize their hearing health behavior to take full advantage of their hearing aids. Users of internet-connected Oticon Opn and Oticon Siya hearing aids can use HearingFitness to track how long they wear their hearing aids and receive notifications and prompts to help them reach their wearing goals and track the noise levels they are frequently exposed to. The new tool can be especially useful for first-time users who find it difficult to adapt to wearing hearing aids.
