Distinct Oticon Opn Features:

                                                  

Velox™ Ultra-Fast and Precise Sound Processing Offers Rich More Meaningful Soundscape

The Velox platform offers the extreme speed needed to rapidly analyze and balance sounds in the environment and eliminate noise between words. Surrounding sounds are available but not intrusive. Velox manages multiple sound sources, analyzing and processing sound data 50 times faster than before. Sixty-four band frequency resolution enables a more precise sound analysis and better sound quality to support the brain’s ability to make sense of sound.

 

TwinLink™ Technology: Binaural Processing & Direct Connectivity

Oticon Opn is the industry’s first hearing solution to offer TwinLink technology, two communication systems in one hearing solution. One system provides near-field magnetic communication (NFMI) which optimizes binaural ear-to-ear processing to support communication between two hearing aids for a more natural sound experience. A second dedicated system uses 2.4GHz Bluetooth direct streaming for wireless communication to mobile phones, music players, computers, TV and more.

 

Internet Connected Hearing Device

Oticon Opn connects directly to the internet via the If This Then That service (IFTTT.com). Users can connect to a wide range of IFTTT-enabled devices used in everyday life such as door bells, thermostats and baby monitors. Oticon Opn users will be able to use their hearing aids with a growing number of IFTTT-compatible products and services as they become available.

 

OpenSound Navigator™

OpenSound Navigator™ scans, analyzes and reacts to sounds in the environment more than 100 times per second. Thanks to this extreme processing speed, Oticon Opn is able to continually analyze and balance sounds, removing noise between words. Users can follow the sounds they want to hear and quickly shift attention when desired. Surrounding sounds are available but not intrusive so users can focus on the sounds they want to hear even in noisy situations.
