Oticon Opn significantly reduces listening effort
New research shows a significant increase in listening effort for people with hearing loss, even when noise is quieter than speech.
With the speed and precision of Multiple Speaker Access Technology (MSAT), the OpenSound Navigator can reduce noise enough to significantly reduce listening effort in everyday listening environments, while at the same time delivering an open sound experience.
OpenSound Navigator significantly narrows the gap between hearing loss and normal hearing in everyday listening environments. Consequently, across different listening environments Oticon Opn 1 will provide the most support.***
* Ohlenforst et al. 2016. Persons with hearing loss had audibility compensated with amplification.
** Wendt et al. 2016, Lunner et al. 2016. Data indicates a 33% and a 35% reduction in Peak Pupil Dilation at SNRs of 1.3dB and 7.1dB, respectively. Individual benefits may depend on prescription.
*** Only Oticon Opn 1 has the full effect of OpenSound Navigator™.
