Somerset, NJ–(business wire—Hearing aid manufacturer Oticon, Inc. is launching Oticon Own™, a new family of adaptive hearing aids. Developed for ultimate discretion and superior sound quality, Oticon Own is a fully customized in-the-ear hearing solution. Harnessing the power of Oticon’s groundbreaking BrainHearing™ technology, Oticon Own is the world’s first custom in-the-ear hearing aid with an on-board deep neural network* that works like the brain because it learns through experience.
“Oticon One features life-changing technology that harnesses the power of Brain Hearing to deliver a personalized listening experience that allows people with hearing loss to focus on what matters most with complete confidence,” said Gary Rosenblum, president of Oticon.
Oticon Own – life-changing technology in discreet styles
People come in all shapes and sizes, with unique interests, hobbies, and lifestyles that call for customized hearing care. Oticon Own offers a tailor-made experience to suit different lifestyle needs, with styles ranging from full shell to Oticon’s smallest IIC (invisible-in-the-canal). The lineup is offered in five different styles, performance levels, and colors to match hair and skin tones, providing a truly personalized listening experience.
By taking into account lifestyle factors such as wearing glasses and face masks, Oticon Own makes wearing hearing aids more comfortable and convenient for everyday life. For ultimate discretion, Oticon Own’s IIC is completely invisible in 9 out of 10 ears**.
Life-changing technology in in-the-ear hearing aids
Oticon Own is the world’s first hearing aid with a Deep Neural Network (DNN) embedded in the chip*. Designed to learn through experience, the DNN was trained on 12 million sounds from real life to support the brain by providing access to important sounds in a person’s environment.
Even in complex listening environments like restaurants and office meetings, Oticon Own helps you navigate what you need to hear, reduce listening effort*** and make it easier to take on other tasks. Built on the core of Oticon’s life-changing technology, BrainHearing, Oticon Own was developed to give access to the full sound environment, allowing the brain to work more efficiently and naturally to make sense of sound.
