The human body is far more complex than one can imagine, and much still remains unknown. Even one aspect of it, the human ear, is incredibly intricate and genius in design. Those with hearing aids can tell you that although hearing aids do help tremendously, it might not translate sounds the way the ear naturally would. Yet, hearing aid technology continues to advance, and Oticon now introduces their newest hearing aid, Oticon More.
Oticon’s Newest Hearing Aid
Oticon is known for their innovative hearing aid technology. Their experience exceeds 110 years in designing and developing hearing aids, improving both people’s hearing and overall quality of life. In 2021, their newest hearing aid, Oticon More, won the title of CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Wearable Technologies and Health & Wellness categories.
Why and how exactly does Oticon More win such prestige? One must first look at the brain. The human brain is the engine behind one’s ability to hear, interpreting electrical signals into sounds with meaning. Oticon, Inc. channeled this design and taught their new hearing aid to process sound in a similar fashion for a more natural sound translation.
Their new hearing aid is the first to include an on-board deep neural network, or DNN. Oticon tested the DNN on 12 million everyday sounds so it is prepared to translate and identify the intricacies of sound. Just as the brain learns gradually over time, so the DNN learned its 12 million sounds naturally over time. This method is Oticon’s BrainHearing technology.
As a result, Oticon More wearers can put less effort into understanding sounds and speech, with 30% more sound channeled to the brain and 15% improved understanding of speech. Those with hearing loss can put even less effort into translating speech and hear sounds through hearing aids more naturally than ever before.
Like many great hearing aids today, one has the ability to connect it to one’s iPhone or Android device to take phone calls and stream media. Oticon More also has a rechargeable version with a lithium-ion battery, plus eight fashionable colors that can match one’s skin or hair tone.
