Oticon is the world’s second largest hearing aid manufacturer which was founded in 1904 by Hans Demant whose wife was hearing impaired. Their head office is situated in Denmark just outside of Copenhagen. They have their own retail chain of Audioclinic stores who fit Oticon only throughout Australia and the world.
Their motto of People First has pervaded their excellence in hearing products and care. They have won numerous design awards for their hearing devices, including the 2012 Danish Design awards. The Oticon Intiga was the only category winner to earn two awards from the prestigious design competition, which honours companies that have created innovative products and solutions of a high aesthetic and functional quality.
Oticon have always been at the cutting edge of hearing aid technology, being one of the first companies to release a receiver-in-the-ear (RIC) technology as well as the first to launch Bluetooth capable hearing aids. These technological advancements have changed audiology with RIC and Bluetooth features now being quite standard across the hearing aid industry.
Their products allow clinicians good flexibility to program various features required by the client and ultimately have excellent sound quality.
