Premium BrainHearing Technology – Oticon Opn
Oticon Opn provides access to all of the important sounds in everyday listening environments, including when multiple people are speaking. Its ability to support the brain in these conditions is made possible by outstanding performance in five key areas, which result in groundbreaking benefits for the user.
5 Key areas of BrainHearing support
- Open access to all speakers
- Rapid noise reduction
- Localisation of sounds
- Speech clarity
- A personalised listening experience
Open access to all speakers
The open sound experience is built on the foundation of ensuring open access to multiple speakers, even in noisy environments.
Rapid noise reduction
Introducing noise puts extra load on the brain, so a rapid and precise reduction of noise coming from specific directions, as well as diffuse background noise, is essential to make distinct speech stand out.
Localisation of sounds
With the open sound experience bringing access to all sounds, it’s important that users receive precise sound localisation information, so they can decide where to focus.
To ensure maximal speech understanding with less effort, and a richer listening experience, all speech sources in any location are enhanced and clarified.
A personalised listening experience
The performance of Oticon Opn is optimised by making adjustments based on individual needs and personal preferences.
The audiological difference between Oticon Opn1, Opn2 and Opn 3
Hearing loss limits the amount of acoustic detail the brain receives. The few details the harder the brain has to work to decode sound. Oticon Opn1, Opn 2 and Opn 3 all provide access to a 360 degree listening environment, but they differ in the way they support and help the brain making sense of sound.
Three Opn features are key in supporting the brain in making sense of sound.
Opens the sound by preserving distinct speech and removing the noise that makes speech unclear. The level of noise that can be removed that can be removed in different listening environments ranging from 9dB to 3dB and results in different levels of BrainHearing support.
Spatial Sound LX
Makes sure that important information about the location of sound is preserved. With 4 level estimators Oticon Opn 1 offers the best spatial information of the three performance levels.
Speech Guard LX
Amplifies and preserve clean speech information and improves the ability of the brain to separate speech form noise. The difference between Opn 1, Opn 2 and Opn 3 lies in the input range combined with the linear window which ranges from 12 to 9dB, resulting in different levels of speech cue preservation.
In addition Oticon Opn also contains a number of other features that will also influence the support the brain receives in different listening situations e.g. Clear Dynamics, Spatial Noise Management, bandwidth, and a number of processing channels.
Oticon Opn 1 provides the maximum support across different listening environments, client age and lifestyle.
