About the Oticon OPN
Velox provides OPN with an “open sound solution,” which gives wearers the experience of a full soundscape, even in the most challenging sound environments. Oticon hearing aid wearers are empowered to focus on the sounds they want to hear, while experiencing significant cognitive benefits.
Building upon Oticon’s previous hearing aid features and innovations, OPN improves upon BrainHearing Technology by providing wearers with a fuller spectrum of sound in their environment as well as clearer sound signals that better assist the brain in the auditory process. Unlike traditional hearing aids which suppress sounds, OPN provides wearers with a full soundscape of their environment.
When wearers receive more audio information, they are able to simultaneously take in environmental sounds while making the decision to focus on the sounds they want to hear. This provides a more natural listening experience. OPN’s OpenSound Navigator Environmental Analyzer scans the full 360 degrees of the wearer’s current listening environment 100 times a second. During this process, algorithms analyze, and balance every sound.
Twinlink Wireless Connectivity
OPN offers two wireless communication systems in one hearing aid. Using near-field magnetic communication (NFMI), OPN simulates natural binaural hearing with ear-to-ear communication between the microphone of the two hearing aids. This experience provides wearers with more access to sound, and also a more natural listening experience.
TwinLink also offers Bluetooth accessibility with OPN, which allows wearers to connect their hearing aids to their smartphones and other personal electronic devices. With this connection, OPN wearers have the option to stream phone calls, music, and other media directly from their smartphones and devices to their hearing aids. This provides better sound quality and accessibility for wearers.
