Industry Firsts Tailored to Power Users
Oticon Xceed features a radical new approach to hearing care for individuals with severe-to-profound hearing loss that is proven to deliver better speech clarity and better short-term recall while reducing the listening effort this patient population struggles with in most situations every day.
Xceed is the first super- and ultra-power hearing aid with OpenSound Navigator™ and OpenSound Optimizer™, BrainHearing™ technologies that support more access to speech. The innovative technology in Xceed empowers hearing care professionals to deliver industry-leading optimal output and gain – 146dB SPL and 87 dB full on gain -- without the high risk of feedback. People with severe-to-profound hearing loss can enjoy more access to speech throughout the day with a 360° soundscape and consistent amplification without significant gain reductions.
Convenient Follow-up Care Benefits Practitioner and Patient
When launched in 2020, Oticon RemoteCare will facilitate easier access to the personalized care that qualified hearing care practitioners provide and that hearing aid wearers require, allowing hearing care professionals to provide optimal support for their patients at a mutually convenient time. RemoteCare will provide hearing care professionals and patients with easy access to follow-up appointments, especially convenient during the first days and weeks with new hearing aids. The Oticon RemoteCare App enables data communication between the users' hearing aids and the hearing care professional via a stable Internet connection. Hearing care practitioners can make necessary adjustments in real time – just as if the patient was in the clinic - and receive immediate feedback.
“By providing a global showcase for our newest hearing technology, prestigious awards like the CES Innovation Awards help us to show the world the wide-ranging possibilities of modern hearing technology to improve not only hearing, but quality of life,” said Rosenblum.
