Oticon whitepapers

Technology and research insights, delivered by the Centre for Applied Audiology Research (CAAR) at Oticon headquarters in Denmark.

CAAR investigates benefits of hearing technology in collaboration with leading researchers globally. It ensures that Oticon uses the best available research methods for the purpose and also explores new and yet unseen benefits. The Centre further delivers insights on new technology developed by Oticon. The collaboration between CAAR and the Eriksholm Research Centre ensures that Oticon has an evidence-based approach to developing its’ BrainHearing™ technologies.

  • Closing a gap to normal hearing

    This whitepaper provides useful knowledge about listening effort in a normal-hearing population and may be used as a reference to studies that investigate listening effort in people with hearing loss.


  • HearingFitness App

    This whitepaper describes how HearingFitness tracks hearing aid use and provides insights to optimize health based on big data analytics that combine lifestyle and healthcare data with local sound environment analysis.


  • Opn™ 30/20/20 clinical evidence

    This whitepaper presents a summary of the clinical studies investigating the end-user benefits of the new signal processing introduced in Oticon Opn on cognitive effort, memory recall, and speech recognition performance.

  • Oticon Opn

    OpenSound Navigator™

    This paper describes the new technology implemented in Oticon Opn™, OpenSound Navigator. An overview of the underlying technologies and the new Oticon Genie 2 interface.

  • Oticon Opn

    Velox™ Platform

    The new ultra-fast Velox platform brings market-leading resolution with 64 frequency channels. The high speed platform analyzes the environment more than 100 times per second and handles more than 500 million instructions per second. The tech paper will describe the Velox chip, and the new wireless capabilities in TwinLink™.

  • Wind Noise Management

    The new wind noise management feature in Opn estimates wind noise 500 times/sec. The speed and power available on the Velox platform make it possible for Opn to quickly and sufficiently attenuate wind noise, even between words.

  • Feedback shield LX

    Feedback shield LX is the ultimate enabler of OpenSound Navigator, the technology in Opn which allows hearing aid wearers access to more sound in their surroundings while maintaining good speech understanding, recalling more of conversations afterwards, and reducing listening effort.

  • Audiology for loud, dynamic environments

    This paper describes the new extended input range provided by Clear Dynamics and the benefits this may provide users in loud environments with speech or listening to music. How widening the input range affects the demands on the handling of comfortrelated features like Transient Noise Management and maximum power output (MPO) is also described.


  • Benefits for OSN in children

    A research study shows that OpenSound Navigator™ improves children’s speech understanding in noisy environments, even when listeners face away from the talker. This tech paper summarizes the key findings and discusses the implications of the study.


  • Fitting Opn for persons with tinnitus

    In complex or noisy listening environments, tinnitus adds to the cognitive load on the brain, much like hearing loss does. Oticon Opn hearing aids provide signal processing that supports patients with tinnitus in multiple environments by decreasing the load on the brain and helping to focus on positive and meaningful sounds.


  • REM Cookbook

    This guide focuses on the most common fitting situation in the clinic, ie. the verification of open or partially open fittings, use of speech as the input signal, and verification on the ear, rather than in the test box.

  • Client Target and REM

    This document explains how the graph view has changed for all rationales in the new Genie 2 fitting software.  Client Target is the Genie 2 fitting software concept designed to help the clinician achieve even more successful first fittings, right from the start.

  • Amplifying soft sounds

    The first part of this white paper describes how amplification works in today’s digital hearing aids and highlights the strength of Oticon’s proprietary amplification technologies: VAC and Speech Guard. The second part is dedicated to features such as Soft speech Booster and Soft Sound Perception control that were introduced with Alta2 and Nera2.

  • Audiology for loud, dynamic environments

    This paper describes the new extended input range provided by Clear Dynamics and the benefits this may provide users in loud environments with speech or listening to music.

  • Fitting with Genie

    Oticon’s fitting and counselling tool, Genie, is designed to provide top quality fittings that meet the individual needs of each user.
