Oticon OPN provides access to all of the important sounds in everyday listening environments including multiple speakers. Its ability to support the brain is made possible by its outstanding performance in four key areas:
Open access to all speakers. The open sound experience is built on the foundation of ensuring open access to multiple speakers, even in noisy environments.
Rapid noise reduction. Intruding noise puts extra load on the brain, so a rapid and precise reduction of noise coming from specific directions, as well as diffuse background noise, is essential to make distinct speech stand out.
Localisation of sounds. With the open sound experience bringing access to all sounds, its important that users receive precise sound localisation information, so they can decide where to focus.
Speech Clarity. To ensure maximal speech understanding with less effort and a richer listening experience, all speech sources in any location are enhanced and clarified.
One Open Sound Experience - Levels of BrainHearing support
BrainHearing support is delivered by a unique combination of technologies working together to reduce listening effort and provide the brain with better conditions in which to perform. All three members of the OPN family provide the unique open sound experience with access to multiple speakers. However, they differ in the amount of support they give the brain in terms of rapid noise reduction, localisation of sounds, speech clarity, and the personalisation fo the listening experience – i.e. they differ in the level of BrainHearing support which is delivered.
*Regardless of end-user age and lifestyle, Oticon always recommend OPN 1 for maximum support across different listening environments.
