Oticon Hearing Aids
Oticon – People First
Oticon traces its origins to Denmark more than 100 years ago, to 1904, when Hans Demant founded the company on the basis of his desire to provide a better quality of life for people with hearing loss; his prime motivation was personal, as his wife was among the individuals he wanted to help. This degree of passion to aid those in need of hearing support remains in place today with Oticon’s People First promise, a commitment to concentrate all efforts on assisting hearing-impaired people to communicate freely, interact naturally, and participate actively each and every day.
Oticon has a strong global presence and is recognized as the second largest manufacturer of hearing devices. This company currently employs more than 3,000 people who help provide hearing solutions to individuals in 100+ countries by way of a worldwide network of 24 sales offices plus 80 independent distributors; Oticon has Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario and a manufacturing facility in Kitchener, Ontario.

Why Choose Oticon Hearing Aids
If you don’t receive enough sound information, it becomes much harder to focus on what is important. Different parts of your brain must instead work to make sense of your surroundings, leaving fewer resources available for other essential mental tasks like remembering. If left untreated, hearing loss can cause severe problems in other areas of your life.
BrainHearing™ technology assists the brain in interpreting the sounds it hears and provides higher-quality sound information. This allows your brain to understand your surroundings better and work more effectively.
Deep Neural Network (DNN)
Oticon aids have a Deep Neural Network embedded on their chip. The chip is trained on more than 12 million sounds, which it then uses to decipher intricate details from the sounds you hear.
It works similarly to how your brain does, allowing you to engage in a conversation even in noisy surroundings.
Eliminate the inconveniences of your hearing aids losing charge when you need them most. Many Oticon hearing aid models are compatible with the miniRITE R, a lithium-ion-based recharging system. After just three hours of charge time, your hearing aid can have enough battery life to last a full day.
Oticon hearing aids are able to connect to the internet through the IFTTT (If This Then That) network. Through this service, you can provide instructions that cause your hearing aid to react if a certain action happens.
For example, you can set up a system that sends a notification to your hearing aid when someone rings a compatible doorbell your doorbell. You could also set up a voice command through Alexa that changes the listening program on your hearing aids when you say a voice command.
