Oticon makes hearing aids that are famous for their sound quality. As technology leaders of the industry, Oticon continually strives towards their vision: a world where hearing loss is no limitation. They challenge conventions and push the limits of technology to change the lives of people with hearing loss.
At Hearing Sense, we’re dedicated to providing the latest technology to our Adelaide clients, which is why we love Oticon hearing aids. Oticon’s devices are built around the knowledge that the brain processes sound by scanning all surrounding sounds and then deciding which meaningful parts to focus on. Oticon’s new More hearing aids are the world’s first hearing aid to embrace this concept and support how the brain naturally makes sense of sound. To do this, the new Oticon More devices use a feature called the Deep Neural Network. This mimics how the brain works and has been trained with 12 million real-life sound scenes, so it can recognise all kinds of sounds in fine detail. Oticon More scans your surroundings 500 times per second, taking in sounds like waves breaking at the beach, the laughter of children playing, and chatter from friends at a dinner table. Delivering 30% more sound to the brain than the previous model Oticon Opn S™, Oticon More can also reduce listening effort and help you remember more of what’s being said.

Determined to improve her quality of life, Hans fitted Camilla with one of the world’s first electronic hearing aids.

Oticon’s devices all use their amazing BrainHearing technology.
BrainHearing technology scans your surroundings 100 times per second to keep up with the nerve firing in your brain and provides you with the following:
- Better speech clarity close and at a distance
- Reduced listening effort
- Helps you remember more of what you just said
The focus is on helping your brain understand the sounds you hear, not just making sounds louder. This technology supports your brain and puts less strain on it with a natural and pleasant ‘soundscape’. This means you are less tired and can just enjoy easy listening. Even their smallest device, the Opn IIC is custom made to hide inside the ear whilst giving you constant access to 360 degree sound. Learn more about the types and styles available in hearing aids, including invisible-in the-ear-canal hearing aids here.
Oticon technology in the media
Oticon’s BrainHearing philosophy has been highlighted in local news media.
In a feature on Channel 7 (Adelaide), Oticon’s BrainHearing philosophy was discussed along with the benefits of treating hearing loss. The news segment explained to viewers how new developments in hearing health research show that the brain should be provided with access to the full sound scene in order to work optimally.

Oticon Hearing Aids and Tinnitus
Tinnitus can be a ringing, buzzing, hissing or roaring sound, and an estimation of 80% of people who suffer from tinnitus also suffer from hearing loss.
Listening to sounds can be a helpful tool for managing tinnitus. Adding pleasant sounds to the sounds you hear already can reduce the impact of tinnitus by helping you move your attention towards the sounds you want to hear, rather than the sound in your head. Compare it to listening to a single violin in a room. Alone, you can only focus on the violin, but if you add a symphony orchestra to the violin, it becomes less distinct and part of the overall sound.
Oticon hearing aids offer a tinnitus solution for Adelaide patients using ocean sounds to provide relief from tinnitus and calm anxiety or nervousness associated with it. Oticon also has a free App called Oticon Tinnitus Sound which helps you with breathing, soothing sounds and other useful tips for easing your tinnitus interference.
If you suspect you are suffering from tinnitus, or hearing loss associated with tinnitus call us on 8331 8047 to arrange a FREE hearing check.
Streaming with Oticon Hearing Aids
Oticon’s hearing aids are also made for iPhone meaning you can stream phone calls and music directly to your aid without needing streamer around your neck. Android devices can work by using a Phone Clip.
In addition to their wide range of impressive products, Oticon has now introduced a CROS device enabling people with single-sided deafness to hear and engage in their world like never before. The CROS device sends a wireless signal from the hearing aid on the poorer ear to the receiver on your better ear to achieve a fuller, more inclusive sound.
