Oticon Hearing Aids
Oticon is a hearing aid manufacturer recognized internationally for focusing on its customers. One of the reasons we use Oticon hearing aids is the company’s philosophy of “People come first”. They have proven to understand that hearing is vital to connecting with individuals and the world around them. Their mission is to provide innovative, high-end technology to help strengthen these relationships.
Hearing Care is Health Care
Oticon has been studying the link between hearing and the brain for nearly two decades. Their “brain first” approach to audiology recognizes that speech understanding and comprehension are cognitive processes that happen in the brain. Oticon’s BrainHearing™ technology delivers improved speech understanding in a way that helps the brain make sense of sound.
The differences between hearing aid models
Depending on what a patient requires for their current lifestyle, Oticon hearing aids are systematized by their levels of technology. All of the technologies come in an extensive array of colors and styles.
Oticon Opn – A Revolutionary Breakthrough
