The upgraded
OpenSound Navigator™
makes it easier to take
part in the world

Oticon’s OpenSound Navigator lets people with hearing loss enjoy a full, balanced soundscape across all listening environments. In a split second, it makes it easier for the brain to decide who and what to listen to, and to switch attention when needed.

Now this groundbreaking feature is available in an even better version. A new Very High setting offers even more help in everyday situations to users who need it most. This extra support can be activated in the Oticon ON App.

Three steps to the open sound experience in a split second

Step 1.

New OpenSound Navigator scans the full 360° sound environment more than 100 times per second to identify noise and separate it from speech.

Once that is carried out, it analyzes the sounds to accurately determine their characteristics, importance, position, level and frequency.

Step 2.

To ensure users feel at ease in the environment, the upgraded OpenSound Navigator balances surrounding sounds. This leaves the focus sound clear and background sounds audible but not distracting.

Rebalancing individual sounds makes it easier for users to separate sounds and for the brain to switch attention.

Step 3.

The upgraded OpenSound Navigator effectively cleans excessive background noise in a 360° radius, including noise coming from the same direction as speech.

To ensure background noise is less intrusive to the listening experience, it can even remove noise between words. Noise reduction can be adjusted to meet individual needs in simple and complex environments.

Better hearing starts with the brain

In order to deliver what the brain needs to make sense of sound, our hearing aids are built on the philosophy that better hearing starts with the brain. This is BrainHearing™.

The basic philosophy of BrainHearing is to support your brain by giving it the conditions it needs to create meaning from sound – instead of overloading it by turning up the volume. This reduces the strain on your brain and leaves you less tired. It also gives you a more natural and pleasant soundscape, instead of simply amplifying one source of sound.

  • Reduces listening effort
  • Helps users remember more of what is being said
  • Gives users better speech understanding
  • Improves the ability to follow conversations with multiple speakers
