Oticon Opn S is the newest addition to Oticon hearing aid family.

It is claimed to be the first hearing aid proven to make it easier on the brain, allowing the users to enjoy 30% better speech understanding, reduce listening effort by 20% , remember 20% more of the conversation.

 

 Hearing loss and hearing aids

We hear not only with our ears but also with our brain. The hearing process starts when the ears pick up sounds. But most of the processing work of the sound takes place in our brain. The brain performs 4 cognitive functions to turn sounds into meaning: orient, separate, focus and recognise.

Hearing loss, disrupts the normal relationship between ears and brain, making the 4 cognitive functions more difficult. This is often presented as a difficulty to follow conversation in noisy situation. In situations such as at the dinner table, where the sound is coming from different directions it becomes increasingly difficult. Traditional hearing aids normally focus on a main speech in front while suppressing all other sounds. Yet background sounds often include important speech details, and when not passed onto the brain, conversations are difficult to follow conversations.

Oticon Opn Tm running on Velox platform, employs an “Open sound” approach to manage multiple speech and noise sources. The OpenSound Navigator TM scans the environment 100 times per second to distinguish between speech and background noise.  While opening to 360-degree sound field to allow the wear to  orient  the sound source, it continually  separates  speech and noise, then acts at least 100 times per second to removed excessive noise – even between the words. In this way, the wearer can  focus  on conversation more easily and hence easier  recognition  of speech.  Furthermore ,Oticon reports that the Velox platform has the speed needed to manage multiple sound sources, analysing and processing sound 50 times faster than before.

Own Voice Processing ( OVP)

The Signa Nx hearing aids with OVP  has proven to improved spontaneous acceptance of own voice by 75% of dissatisfied hearing aid wearers *.

* 2017 “First Fit Study” conducted at Hörzentrum Oldenburg examining the effect of own voice processing on spontaneous acceptance after first fit of hearing aids

The sound of own voice is the most common issues for new hearing aid wearers.    For most hearing aid wearers, the more their hearing aid processed voice differs from their own perception of their own voice, the less comfortable and accepting the experience will be.

To achieve clear speech understanding, hearing aids need to provide appropriate volume and audibility. However, the sufficient amplification often leads to reduced acceptance of own voice. In an attempt to solve the problem, the audiologist reduces the amplification to ensure own voice sounds more natural. This, of course, reduces the audibility of speech.

The Signia NX hearing aids uses OVP which detects hearing aid wearer’s own voice and process separately from external sounds. This means when the wearer is speaking, the hearing aid detects and apply dedicated setting different from when only external sounds are present, providing comfortable own voice and best audibility of external speech.

Widex Beyond - made for iPhone

Beyond the ordinary

Widex have taken their hearing instruments to beyond the ordinary by providing connectivity to iPhones.

Wearers can now hear phone conversations through their hearing aids, can hear music from their iPhones through the devices and can use their iPhones to control their hearing aids.

The new range of instruments is called the Widex Beyond and the new feature is called Made for iPhone (MFi). Many of the features in the special app can also be used with android phones.

The Widex Beyond personalised app allows wearers to use intuitive commands on their phone’s screen to adjust the volume on each hearing aid individually, choose speech and comfort settings, and set microphone directionality.

Wearers can also use the app for troubleshooting and can even use their iPhone to find their hearing aids if they are lost.

Widex says its Beyond devices also offer better power consumption than other MFi-streaming hearing aids, which is a huge plus because with some MFi-linked devices, batteries may be reduced - depending on use.

The Widex Beyond hearing instruments have an innovative integrated signal processing chip-set design with full independent channel separation, minimal-delay filters, and four A/D converters, meaning clear sound for users.

Other features include

·       Wide dynamic range so the wearer to optimise sound based on their environment

·       Wind-noise reduction, which gives up to 30% better speech understanding in windy conditions, and

·       Allowing firmware updates so the device can be updated via the phone, without needing to visit an audiologist
