In today's world, hearing aids have become an essential tool for those experiencing hearing loss. One of the leading brands in this space, Oticon, has recently upgraded its offering with the introduction of Oticon Own, a line of in-the-ear hearing aids that sets a new standard in the industry. This product line, powered by Oticon's new Polaris chip platform, offers a range of styles, technology levels, and colors, providing a highly customizable and powerful solution for individuals with hearing loss.
Oticon Own: An Overview
The Oticon Own is a comprehensive update to the Opn Custom Solutions, a line of in-the-ear hearing aids that Oticon introduced about four years ago. This new product line boasts five styles, five technology levels, and five different colors, offering a discreet yet powerful hearing solution.
Notably, the Oticon Own line includes the smallest of Oticon's hearing aids to date. The invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) style, together with the completely-in-the-canal (CIC) style, can employ up to a level 90 dB receiver. Other models, such as the in-the-canal (ITC) and half-shell and full-shell ITE, can fit up to level 100 receivers. This means the Oticon Own product line caters to a broad spectrum of hearing loss, including severe cases.
The Oticon Own also incorporates technology from the successful Oticon More line of hearing aids, which use the brand's BrainHearing approach for easier listening. Moreover, the onboard Deep Neural Network (DNN)—available in the top-three technology tiers of Oticon Own—is the first custom hearing aid to use this proprietary machine-learning technology. The DNN adjusts hearing aid settings by recognizing millions of sounds and listening environments.
Aesthetically Pleasing Design
Oticon Own is designed to blend seamlessly with your appearance. The hearing aids are custom-made to fit your unique ear shape and can be customized in one of five styles. These range from IIC to full-shell ITE, as well as in five colors that match your skin tone and personal style.
Highlighted Features of Oticon Own
Oticon's BrainHearing Technology, first introduced eight years ago, is designed to reduce the brain's processing effort by providing the clearest, purest sound signals to decode. The BrainHearing technology combines several of Oticon's latest processing strategies to provide the brain with the input needed to hear more clearly, reducing listening effort.
Deep Neural Network Technology
Working in conjunction with BrainHearing is the Deep Neural Network (DNN) technology, available in the Oticon Own 1, 2, and 3 technology levels. DNN recognizes 12 million real-life sounds, enabling the hearing aid to respond to unique listening environments. This makes it easier for the brain to focus on other tasks, even in complex listening environments like restaurants or office meetings.
The Power of Connectivity
Several Oticon Own styles are compatible with iPhone® and Android™ devices, offering direct, high-quality streaming. Select iPhone® and iPad® users can enjoy hands-free communication, thanks to Apple support for bi-directional hearing aids. The ITC, half-shell, and full-shell ITE styles introduce 2.4 GHz Bluetooth® Low Energy Technology, making the Oticon Own ITC the smallest, fully-featured ITE hearing aid in the Oticon portfolio.
Oticon Own is a powerful, discreet, custom in-the-ear line of hearing aids that features Oticon's innovative BrainHearing technology. It provides you with clear, pure sound signals that reduce your listening effort. The new custom devices cater to a wide range of hearing losses, from mild to severe, with three styles capable of providing Bluetooth connectivity.
With Oticon Own, you can enjoy life to the fullest, regardless of your hearing condition. Be it at a lively party, in a noisy workspace, or during a quiet intimate conversation, these hearing aids are designed to help you hear and live better.
