Their latest range has exceptionally well received by both professionals and users alike
Oticon’s Latest Most Advanced Premium Solution
Oticon have just introduced a new ground breaking hearing device range. They are so small they are practically invisible and come in a range of shades and bright colours. The internet-enabled Oticon Opn comes with a number of additional features because it can connect to devices via the internet and Bluetooth. The hearing aids will connect directly to your Smartphone so you can make phone calls and listen to music without any intermediate streaming device. They are also water resistant to 1m.
The devices can be connected to any device that has a Bluetooth connection. This means that the hearing aids can also be connected to things like doorbells, appliances, or even baby monitors. Then when the doorbell rings, for example, the person gets a small ‘ring’ in their ear to let them know.
