Oticon Hearing Aids
Oticon was founded in 1904 and is considered one of the most successful firms in the industry. Located outside Copenhagen in Denmark, they are the world's second-largest manufacturer of hearing aids.
The company was founded by Hans Demant, who set out over 116 years ago to help his wife, Camilla Louise Demant, with her hearing loss. Passionate about helping his hard of hearing wife, he bought a hearing aid for her after learning that Queen Alexandra of England was wearing one. Hans Demant was fascinated by how this hearing instrument enhanced his wife's hearing.
Oticon's motto, 'People First' continues to inspire the company to do great things. This philosophy informs every piece of research, every Oticon hearing aid, and every feature that it generates.
Oticon More is a hearing aid designed to support your brain. Did you know that even with mild, untreated hearing loss, your risk of dementia can double? In a 25-year study, people with hearing loss, but not using hearing aids, had a higher risk of dementia. And since science shows that we hear with our brains and not our ears, having a hearing aid that supports your brain is all the more important.
Oticon More with BrainHearing™ technology is a revolutionary hearing aid that gives the brain more of the relevant information it needs to make better sense of sound, so you can get better speech understanding with less effort and the ability to remember more. Take better care of your brain, and your brain will take better care of you.
Hearing Technology from Oticon
By preserving the natural sound processes in the brain and enabling both ears to work together to identify where the sounds originate, BrainHearing technology helps compensate for the difficulties associated with hearing loss. The technology of BrainHearing helps you focus on the sounds that are around you. Speech is given preference over other sounds to help the wearer discern voices from noise. It is possible to program BrainHearing hearing devices to match personal preferences with individual settings. The result is a more effortless listening experience.
